Prepare for takeoff because The Flight Attendant season 2 is flying into HBO Max soon. Kaley Cuoco's dark comedy/thriller returns with a new globe-trotting adventure for the titular airline employee.

The Flight Attendant season 2 streaming details

The Flight Attendant season 2 begins streaming Thursday, April 21 at 3 a.m. ET on HBO Max.

The Flight Attendant season 1 introduced Cassie Bowden, a hard-drinking, good-time gal who jets all over the world as a flight attendant for Imperial Airlines. On a flight to Bangkok, she flirted with a handsome passenger, Alex Sokolov (Michiel Huisman). After landing, they hooked up, but Cassie woke up the next morning to discover Alex dead in the bed next to her. 

Terrified and hungover, she decided not to call the police. It was the first in a string of bad decisions that landed her in major trouble. Thanks to sleuthing on her part, Cassie eventually cleared her name. 

In season 2, Cassie is living in Los Angeles. She's sober, and has a boyfriend. She still works for the airline, but also moonlights as a CIA asset in her spare time. But when an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, she becomes entangled in more international intrigue.
