HBO Max is filling out the passenger list for the second season of “The Flight Attendant,” adding three series regulars and six recurring guest stars.
Mo McRae, Callie Hernandez and JJ Soria will join Kaley Cuoco as series regulars, with Cheryl Hines, Jessie Ennis, Mae Martin, Margaret Cho, Santiago Cabrera and Shohreh Aghdashloo appearing as recurring guest stars.
McRae will play CIA officer Benajmin Berry, “who may have a bad habit of getting a little too involved with his assets.” Hernandez will play Gabrielle Diaz, a quick-tempered and calculating bounty hunter whose impulse control issues often get in the way of her job. Soria will play Esteban Diaz, Gabrielle’s partner and lover.
