Bazinga! Kaley Cuoco is back with season two of 'The Flight Attendant'. Season one, in which Cuoco's character Cassie has to pick up the pieces after waking up in bed next to a dead man, was great. It was funny, moving, and featured some really good performances. Can the follow-up keep to those standards?
On the evidence of the early episodes, the answer is yes. Just.
This time we meet Cassie in LA where she is rebuilding her life. Various coincidences mean most of the gang from season one are also there - Annie (Zosia Mamet) and her boyfriend Max (Deniz Akdeniz), plus Cassie's brother Davey (T.R. Knight). We are also re-introduced very quickly to Cassie's Imperial Atlantic crewmates Shane (Griffin Matthews) and Jada (Yasha Jackson). Added to the in-flight roster is Grace, played by Mae Martin (look out for her hilarious t-shirt at one point in season two).
