Kaley Cuoco might just be getting ready for another takeoff — albeit slowly.
In an interview published in May, Cuoco, 36, said that while there was some interest in doing a third season of The Flight Attendant, the plane had "landed" for her, as she's not one to hurry into things.
"I think I need a minute. I just kind of feel like we just ended," the star explained. "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."
Now, in a new interview, Cuoco seemed to be more open about the idea.
"You'd think after 30 years in this business, I'd learned how to talk in interviews. But no, I still run my mouth. It hadn't even aired yet," she clarified. "I'm like, 'Guys, let's sit for a second!' Look, I've learned in my life never say never — that's my biggest advice. So I'm definitely open to it."
"I was at a dinner a couple of weeks ago sitting next to [executive producer] Greg Berlanti, and there were a lot of people there so it was really hard to talk, but I whispered to him, and I'm like, 'Third season?' And he just nodded at me. I was like, 'Wow.' He didn't even say anything. He nodded: Yup!" added the Big Bang Theory alum. "I hadn't thought about it in a while, I think season 2 was so heavy for me, that was a big part of it. And now having some separation. And again, we'd have to depend on what it would look like."
Cuoco noted that she keeps thinking the story is done, but there's hope as long as viewers want a comeback. "[I] think there are people that love it, and it hits a lot of people's hearts. So never say never," she said.
However, a third season might not happen anytime soon, as things need to first fall into place.
"I like when shows take a breath. This isn't The Big Bang Theory days — it's different. So I want to be wanted. I don't want to force this down people's throats. I want the storyline to be perfect enough," she shared "And I know that producers and everyone feels the same. I've talked to a lot of the main cast, and they are up for it, too. So that's a great sign. I could see it happening. But probably not anytime soon."
