Kaley Cuoco was back in her bathrobe and delivering good news last night. The “Big Bang Theory” alum, 35, crammed her Instagram stories with uplifting Season 2 go-ahead news as new HBO Max series “The Flight Attendant” gets its green light, with the actress posting everything from promos of the thriller to backstage snaps of herself on set. Kaley, followed by 6.3 million, has gained 100,000 followers since the November 26 release of “The Flight Attendant.” Check out the bathrobe action below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as the eight-episode miniseries Kaley both stars in and produces makes headlines for getting the O.K. for a second season. On Friday, HBO’s Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys confirmed Kaley and her stellar co-stars will have their series renewed, with Kaley herself making a statement.
Kaley’s photo was one from the set. It showed the blonde makeup-free, wet-haired, and in a gray bathrobe with “The Flight Attendant” author Chris Bohjalian – the show is based on a book by the same name.
Kaley, smiling and with Chris in a blazer and jeans, had reposted from The Flight Attendant News Instagram, where a message read: “Based on the book @chrisbohjalian the flight attendant it was a success in its first season @kaleycuoco.”
“Thank you,” Kaley wrote, also throwing out Chris’ IG handle. In a separate statement, the sitcom star said:
“To say that I am elated would be an understatement! The positive response to our show has surpassed all of our expectations and I’m so proud of the entire team behind its success.”
Kaley’s new show sees her playing Cassandra Bowden, a woman who wakes up hungover in a hotel room and with a dead body next to her. She’s also flexing her executive producer muscles, with her Yes, Norman Productions company behind the series.
“The Flight Attendant” also features 32-year-old sister Briana Cuoco – who appeared in a 2013 episode of “Big Bang,” plus “Game of Thrones” star Michiel Huisman and “Dr. Who” face Michelle Gomez. The series filmed in both Italy and NYC prior to the pandemic, with a second Big Apple stint in August of this year.
Kaley’s role as Cassandra Bowden takes her away from the comedy genre that made her a household name in CBS sitcom “Big Bang,” which ended in 2019. Bloys, congratulating Cuoco, stated:
“We are delighted that the show has resonated so strongly with audiences and critics,” adding:
“We congratulate Kaley, Steve, Greg and Sarah, along with the rest of the incredibly talented cast, executive producers and our partners at Warner Bros. Television on all the success of the first season. I look forward to seeing where Cassie will go next.”
