How Many Episodes Is ‘The Flight Attendant’ Season 2?

The Flight Attendant took viewers on a wild ride when its first season debuted on HBO Max, and season 2 looks to deliver another thrilling experience.

That leaves plenty of questions to answer as the second outing continues. So, how many episodes are in The Flight Attendant Season 2?

According to HBO Max, The Flight Attendant Season 2 consists of eight episodes in total. That’s the same number that made up the show’s first outing. The episode count gives Cassie and her friends a decent amount of time to solve their current mystery, with ample opportunity to deliver plenty of twists and turns.

The Flight Attendant dropped its two-part premiere on the streamer on April 21, and it will follow with another pair of installments on April 28. From there, the remaining four chapters will debut weekly. When does that leave the finale?

If The Flight Attendant Season 2 is anything like its predecessor, every episode is sure to leave viewers on edge. However, with any mystery series, the most-anticipated chapter is the finale. After all, that’s when all our questions get answered. It could also set up a third outing if HBO Max is planning to greenlight one.

So, when does the sophomore season’s finale come out? With the show’s release model, it looks like it should hit HBO Max on May 26. Here’s the full episode schedule for The Flight Attendant Season 2:

  • Episodes 1-2: April 21
  • Episodes 3-4: April 28
  • Episode 5: May 5
  • Episode 6: May 12
  • Episode 7: May 19
  • Episode 8: May 26

That gives viewers just over a month of new content to look forward to. But what can they expect from Cassie’s latest adventure? Judging by the opening chapters, her current mystery will be even more mind-boggling than season 1’s.

Here’s what to expect from the HBO Max show’s coming episodes

With eight episodes to look forward to, what can viewers expect from The Flight Attendant Season 2? To start, we’ll see Cassie trying to preserve the new life she’s built for herself. After confronting her alcoholism in season 1, she joined Alcoholics Anonymous, moved to Los Angeles, and started a relationship and part-time job with the CIA.

Unfortunately, someone impersonating her threatens to tear apart everything she’s built. The show’s sophomore season will see her trying to determine who’s imitating her and why. And with the CIA not taking her concerns seriously, she’ll have to take matters into her own hands. That spells trouble, but she managed to clear her name in season 1. Hopefully, she can do it again.

Season 2 also looks to continue Megan Briscoe’s (Rosie Perez) story. However, it hasn’t revealed much about her circumstances after fleeing the U.S. It seems like she’s in trouble again, but we’ll have to wait for further details about her new storyline. The coming installments should shed more light on how she fits into the second season’s plot.

In the meantime, fans can catch the first two episodes of The Flight Attendant Season 2 on HBO Max.
