The Emmy winner and Oscar nominee will have a recurring part in season two of the HBO Max series, playing Lisa Bowden, the mother of Kaley Cuoco’s Cassie. The two have been estranged for some time, and after years of dealing with Cassie’s alcoholism, Lisa would prefer to stay estranged.
The Flight Attendant will pick up its second season with Cassie living her best sober life in Los Angeles while moonlighting as a CIA asset. When an overseas assignment leads her to inadvertently witness a murder, she becomes entangled in another international intrigue.
Stone will join a sizable ensemble for season two. In addition to returning castmembers Cuoco, Zosia Mamet, Griffin Matthews, Deniz Akdeniz, Rosie Perez, T.R. Knight, Yasha Jackson and Audrey Grace Marshall, the series has added three new regulars in Mo McRae, Callie Hernandez and J.J. Soria.
