No Season 3 for the Kaley Cuoco thriller.
January 19, 2024
Word is out that The Flight Attendant will not be returning to Max for a third season. The news comes over a year-and-a-half after the thriller wrapped its 8-episode sophomore run.
The show debuted in 2020 as a limited series based on Chris Bohjalian's novel of the same name. But after it was met with high praise and strong viewership, the streamer opted for a new season that continued the adventures of its lead character. While there was no concrete news on the show's future until today, a third season did seem unlikely, as star Kaley Cuoco hinted after the Season 2 finale that "We did two — we should probably be done." A new statement released today solidified that point.
"What started out as an attention-grabbing book cover quickly evolved into an extraordinary flight of a lifetime," Cuoco said. "I always envisioned TFA as a limited series and thanks to an incredible creative team, we were able to deliver two thrilling seasons. Personally, playing Cassie has been a dream come true and I am so grateful for everyone who played a part in bringing this extremely original series to life."
Season 1 of the series followed Cassie Bowden, a flight attendant who wakes up hungover in a Bangkok hotel room to find a dead body next to her. With no memories of what happened the night before, she sets out to unravel the mystery of what actually happened. In Season 2, Cassie was drawn into a brand new mystery now moonlighting as an asset for the CIA.

The first season was awesome. The second was struggling to find a reason to exist..

I never finished the first season. I got bored with the "mystery," and it just kept doing the same thing every episode.

This was a rare misfire by Ms. Cuoco. Cassie was little more than an unpleasant drunk. Her character wasn't likeable in the few episodes I watched of the first season. Yet somehow in the show everybody told her she was their best friend even after Cassie caused them all kinds of grief. Maybe she reformed as the series went on, but I just couldn't stick around to find out.

I think we're seeing the beginning of the big problem with streaming: the oversaturated market cannot afford so many scripted shows when the number of people paying for the services fluctuates and dwindles. These companies got greedy and wanted their own streaming service, not having the common sense to realize that the average customer is not going to pay for 7-10 different streaming services. Even Netflix, while still a juggernaut in the industry, is seeing the effects of so many jumping on the bandwagon and cutting into their market. I predict a lot more mergers and price hikes (which won't solve it, but will eventually turn it into a variation of cable and satellite).

I loved this show... Agreed that some shows shouldn't be dragged on and on... Max should learn to program and not cancel just because a show costs money. I have a prediction that Max is going to turn into more unscripted than scripted.

It's been a good show, but I think it's the right move. Sometimes they drag these shows on until they jump the Shark. Not every premise for a show has to go on and on for years and years.

Personally, the series didn't hold my interest as much as I enjoyed seeing K. Cuoco. I see & saw her recent movie, Role Play, which I found more interesting/entertaining and feel complete within the 2 hour time-frame:)

Not surprised but would have liked to of gotten the news sooner. It was fun for 2 seasons and ended well so I can't complain about that.
