Don’t expect another season of The Flight Attendant any time soon: Kaley Cuoco has told PEOPLE that there aren’t currently plans for a third season.
“Now, I’m like, ‘Well, we did two. We should probably be done.’ And I think I’ve been outnumbered with that thought,” she explains while promoting Smirnoff’s How to Summer: Grown-Up Edition campaign. “There’s definitely interest in doing a third season. I think for me, at this moment, the plane has landed.”
Cuoco, 36, admits that she “could possibly get back in it,” though she doesn’t want to do so right away.
“I think I need a minute. I just kind of feel like we just ended,” she says. “Some of my favorite shows on TV take some time to come back, and then I get very excited about a new season. I want to make sure that the fans are excited and that we’re not pushing it too hard.””I mean, we’ve done so much this season. Even in the eight episodes, we’ve done so much story that I’m thinking, Well, what could we do next? So it’s going to take a lot of thought to make sure if we go back that it’s better than the last two, which is very hard to do.”

Anyway, if a third season were to happen, Cuoco says she would like to focus more on her character’s sobriety journey.
“That is what her life is truly about and those are her struggles, but I don’t know. I think it’s going to take us a minute to figure out what that would look like,” she says. “And also, because our show is international, where would we go? It’s all about the travel on this show, which makes it so special.”
Cuoco adds that “the best part” about how season 2 ends is that the series “could definitely be done or it’s definitely open to continuing.”
“I think the writers and the team did a really beautiful job in tying it up in a pretty bow,” she concludes. “But if you had to open the bow, it would be okay.”
