HBO Max announced that Emmy-nominated writer/producer Natalie Chaidez (Queen of the South, Heroes) has joined the creative team of the breakout hit series (and of Reel 360’s favorites) The Flight Attendant for its second season.

Chaidez will serve as co-showrunner and executive producer alongside executive producer/showrunner Steve Yockey, who developed the series.

Greg Berlanti, series star Kaley Cuoco, and Sarah Schechter are also executive producers of The Flight Attendant, which is produced by Warner Bros. Television, Cuoco’s Yes, Norman Productions, and Berlanti Productions. Yes, Norman’s Suzanne McCormack is co-executive producer.

The Flight Attendant’s first season was based on the novel of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian. The dark comedic thriller told the story about the ways an entire life can change in one night: a flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man — and no idea what happened.

The show’s first season was filmed in New York, Bangkok, and Rome, and all eight episodes are now streaming on HBO Max.

Reel 360 wishes Natalie all the best in her new role.
