“I was at a dinner a couple of weeks ago sitting next to [executive producer] Greg Berlanti, and there were a lot of people there so it was really hard to talk, but I whispered to him, and I’m like, ‘Third season?’ And he just nodded at me,” she teased.
The Flight Attendant airs on HBO Max in the US, and Sky Max and NOW in the UK. The series is based on the book of the same name by Chris Bohjalian.
