The Flight Attendant spoilers follow.

The Flight Attendant season 2 has premiered its first few episodes, bringing us back into the wild world of Kaley Cuoco's character Cassie Bowden.

Season 2 sees her balance out her flight attendant job with being a human asset for the CIA, but more importantly battling through her alcohol dependency.

The way the show wants to visualise Cassie's struggle with her inner demons is similar to the 'Mind Palace' where she talked to the dead Alex in season 1, but this time it's with the different parts of her psyche that she doesn't like.

As Cuoco told Digital Spy and other press, filming these scenes was weird.

"At first, it sounded like a great idea to play five of me, until I did it, and was like, 'What the hell was I thinking?'" she laughed.

"No, it was a wild experience. A lot of times, there were a lot of weeks where I was basically working against myself and a lot of my body doubles. It was a really weird experience. I've never done anything like that before. But I think it's going to be very cool. But we definitely took a big leap. And I think it's 10 times bigger than it was in season 1.

"I was kind of acting against myself. It was a really wild experience. The only other show I've heard of doing it, at this extent, was Orphan Black. And we actually spoke to a lot of their people that helped them figure this out.

"Yes, I would shoot one take as one Cassie, and I would do that for hours. And then I would switch to another Cassie, and I would actually be working basically against myself. And I had many body doubles that were helping me, and acting with me, which was super helpful.

"I had to make sure my eyeline was correct, and that I was moving my hands correct. It was a lot to think about."

The Flight Attendant, season 2 airs on HBO Max in the US. In the UK, it will premiere on Sky Max in May. The series is based on the book of the same name by Chris Bohjalian.
