The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco’s new TV drama series The Flight Attendant has given a major update on its premiere.

The limited series was just a few days into filming episode six of its eight-episode order in March when production was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, the show’s executive producer/co-showrunner Steve Yockey has announced they are “looking to get back up and running at the end of August”.

“We are all feeling very positive about it but of course the health and safety of our cast and crew are the top priority,” he continued (via Deadline).

“But assuming everything goes to plan, you will be seeing The Flight Attendant on HBO Max this fall.”

Yockey added that the cast and crew will be adhering to new safety measures and there will also be rapid on-site testing.

Speaking about changes to the script, Yockey said: “We’ve had to adjust some physical details of the scripts for safety but haven’t had to change the story which we feel very lucky about.

“Luckily we had finished all of our international filming before the shutdown.”

The showrunner added that the production team has “worked very, very hard to put together a plan that is making everyone feel confident that we can do this, and that we can make everyone be safe.

“We wouldn’t be going back if we didn’t think that we would keep everyone healthy.”

Alongside Cuoco, the series also stars Sons of Anarchy actress Merle Dandridge, Girls star Zosia Mamet and Glee’s Nolan Gerard Funk, plus the recently-added Doctor Who star Michelle Gomez.
