Alanna Ubach is joining the cast of The Flight Attendant for season two.

In November, a report from Digital Spy confirmed the news, revealing that the series announced Ubach had been brought aboard for season two.

In addition to recently appearing as Suze on the Zendaya-led HBO series, Euphoria, Ubach has been seen in a number of television series, including Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, See Dad Run, Monsters at Work, Men of a Certain Age, Hung, and Welcome to the Wayne (via IMDb).

As fans may know, just as Euphoria has been a hit for HBO, The Flight Attendant, a mystery thriller led by Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco, has gained popularity on HBO Max.

As Digital Spy explained, The Flight Attendant has been a hot topic in recent weeks as new castings and behind the scenes photos have been shared.

As Ubach takes on the role of Carol Atkinson alongside Cuoco, who plays the role of Cassie Bowden, she'll be joined by a number of other actors and actresses, including Curb Your Enthusiasm star Cheryl Hines, 30 Rock cast member Margaret Cho, Better Call Saul's Jessie Ennis, and 24 actress Shohreh Aghdashloo.

Grey's Anatomy star TR Knight, Black Mirror's Yasha Jackson, and Small Time actress Audrey Grace will also be featured on the second season of The Flight Attendant after first nabbing roles on the series ahead of season one, which premiered in 2020.

While Ubach ultimately landed the role of Suze in Euphoria, she actually auditioned for the role of Rue's mom before Zendaya was cast as Rue. During an interview with Brief Take in July 2020, Ubach looked back on the switcheroo that took place amid pre-production on the series.

Wanted to Be the 'Lush' In 'Euphoria'

Speaking to Brief Take, Ubach said that after reading through the entire script of the pilot episode of Euphoria, she learned the network was very excited to be welcoming Zendaya to the series.

"And I thought, 'Well it’s not going to be believable to play her mom, but are there any other roles in this…oooohhh, how about, this is interesting, I like the lush,'" Ubach recalled. "She reminds me very much of all of the mothers with whom I fell in love when I was a teenager because they were lenient on all my friends."

Personal Connection To The Character

"I was jealous of the fact that they didn’t have curfews and was jealous of the fact that we could get drunk at their house, as long as we weren’t driving. She didn’t have any rules or regulations, a single mom, but then years go by and then in retrospect, you look back and think: 'Oh, that woman was actually quite neglectful and probably clinically depressed, right?'" Ubach joked.

The Flight Attendant season 2 is expected to begin airing sometime in 2022.
