If you haven’t seen it yet, The stewardess, you’re missing something. This fantastic dark comedy show on HBO Max impresses critics and viewers everywhere, and we’re excited to see where the exciting show goes.
But what is this series really about? And when can we watch The stewardess season 2? Let’s dive in and find out.
What’s? The stewardess?
The stewardess is a show developed for HBO Max, based on Christ Bohjalian’s book of the same name, written in 2018. Bohjalian himself is quite a character, an Armenian-American writer who worked from newspaper columns to full-fledged novels. The stewardess was his twentieth book, resulting from a long series of stories in 1988.
Cassandra “Cassie” Bowden, a flight attendant who wakes up next to a murdered man in Dubai. Because she had been drinking the night heavily before, she cannot remember whether she was responsible for his death. So she covers her tracks and goes back to work, only to get caught up in the investigation later. Meanwhile, a Russian agent named Miranda, who committed the crime, was ordered to kill Cassie.
The book was well-received by critics, was selected by Oprah’s Book Club, and reached the New York Times bestseller list. But it kicked off in late 2017 when the TV adaptation began. Kaley Cuoco would star as Cassie Bowden. In addition, she played a substantial behind-the-scenes role: her company, Yes Norman Productions, would get the book rights, and Cuoco would be an executive producer on the show.
Only she wouldn’t be alone. In mid-2019, Greg Berlanti would become an executive producer through Berlanti Productions, and shortly after, the show would be announced as an HBO Max exclusive. Shooting began later that year but halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production later resumed in mid-2020, and the series came out in November of that year.
The show’s debut season
The stewardess’s first season premiered on November 26, 2020, and aired the first three episodes. After that, more episodes were released weekly, and the season finale finally aired on December 17.
The plot follows the story of the book fairly closely. Cassie Bowden is still an alcoholic train wreck confused with murder and clears her tracks instead of calling the authorities. But, unfortunately, Miranda goes after her, and the two get caught up in a mess.
Miranda’s fate is unclear at the end of the season, but Cassie promises to sober up and look to the future. Things seem neatly packed. . . or are they?
What about season 2?
Season 2 is in production. Kaley Cuoco said so much on Instagram on September 7, 2021, posting, “Cassie and Cassie’s hair is back! @flightattendantonmax season 2, get ready for another turbulent descent.” Michelle Gomez, who plays Miranda, is also returning, meaning her character probably survived.
Steve Yockey, the showrunner, told the New York Times: “We’ll have to wait and see, but we suspect we haven’t seen the last of Miranda yet . . . It would probably be a whole new adventure if we had a second season. .; like a new Hitchcock movie that Cassie might stumble into.”
That’s very exciting! The series will be released in the spring or summer of 2022. This time, however, things are a bit different.
In mid-2021, TNT & TBS created a service called Front Row, a “limited commercial destination” that will air their original series and shows made for HBO Max. It was launched in the summer, and The stewardess did well on the service, so the second season goes to TBS first.
That’s what it’s for The stewardess Season 2. The future for the show looks bright, and we expect more chaos for Cassie to stumble into! So what do you think will happen in season 2? The stewardess? Let us know in the comments below!
