If you love Kaley Cuoco, you’ll probably want to know how to watch The Flight Attendant online for free to see her in the second season of her series on HBO Max.

The Flight Attendant, which premiered in November 2020 on HBO Max and is based on the 2018 novel of the same name, is a dark comedy starring Cuoco as Cassie Bowden, an alcoholic flight attendant who wakes up one morning to find herself sleeping next to a dead man in a hotel room with no recollection of what took place the night before. The Flight Attendant season two, meanwhile, picks up with Cassie focusing on getting sober and moonlighting as a CIA informant following her globetrotting misadventures in season one.

Since completing season two of the series, Cuoco has expressed her gratitude for the legion of fans who rallied for the show’s return after its nearly two-year hiatus. “I took a risk with this, so many years ago,” Cuoco said in an April 2022 interview with Collider. “I found the book. I was coming off a sitcom that everyone knew me from, and I thought, “Okay, this is my new venture, and I’m either gonna be accepted, and they’re going to like it, or I’m going down with the ship because this is gonna be all my fault.” And I couldn’t believe how much people accepted it and loved it.”

Cuoco went on share the relief she experienced when her show was met with good reviews. “I remember, at the beginning, I was so nervous. I was sick about this thing airing, and I told my team, ‘I don’t want to read any reviews. We did what we did and we’re proud, let’s move on,'” she recalled. But one morning, her publicist shared a glowing review of the first season and urged Cuoco to read it. “It was so lovely, and all of a sudden, I just started crying. It was the first door opening to people accepting this new show,” she gushed. “It was my baby. It’s like someone saying they like your baby. I can imagine, when you have a baby, you’d like people to like your baby. This was all-encompassing to my life, and to feel people love it, and the reviews were great, and then to get the nominations, I would’ve bet millions that was not going to happen.”

Now, fans are eager to watch Cuoco’s journey as Cassie continue to unfold in The Flight Attendant season 2—but first, you’ll have to know where to stream it. Read on ahead for everything we know about how to watch The Flight Attendant online to see Cuoco’s award-winning dark comedy—including ways to watch The Flight Attendant for free.
