Kaley Cuoco isn't interested in returning for a third season of The Flight Attendant, she told People in an interview published Tuesday.
"Now, I'm like, 'Well, we did two. We should probably be done.' And I think I've been outnumbered with that thought," she said. "There's definitely interest in doing a third season. I think for me, at this moment, the plane has landed."
Cuoco added that there's a possibility she "could get back into it," but for now, she needs a break. The HBO Max thriller just wrapped its second season on Thursday, May 26.
"I think I need a minute," said Cuoco. "I just kind of feel like we just ended. 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." She continued, "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."
Cuoco also said that if Season 3 does end up happening, she'd like the story to focus on her character's struggles with sobriety.
"That is what her life is truly about and those are her struggles, but I don't know," said Cuoco. "I think it's going to take us a minute to figure out what that would look like. 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."
The Flight Attendant is currently streaming on HBO Max.
