Kaley has bought her assistant Emma a new coat to wear in a cold location so I'm guessing that they´re preparing for the journey to Iceland. 

Well, Iceland or some other cold location.

She may be overdressed.  Iceland, even in the winter, isn't as cold as people make it out to be.   I played softball there,  a midnight tee off golf tournament there and spend New Year's Eve in 1985, outside, at the Blue Lagoon. I loved Iceland.

Never been to Iceland specifically, but was on the Artic Ocean on a Navy Frigate and it was colder than anywhere else I've been. Even got my Blue Nose Certificate there, Of course you have to get it there because you have to cross the Artic Circle and participate in the initiation ceremony. I believe that was worse than the Shellback initiation ceremony.

Interestingly, I was in the Air Force, but Keflavik is a Naval Air Station (the F-15s were at the west end of the base, away from the main flight line).   The wait for housing was 10-11 months.   So, many of the Air Force People were up there for a year, unaccompanied.  Most other overseas bases required 18 months unaccompanied.   Those who had been there had a very good opinion of the place.  Many would volunteer to go back.  I did,  I was up there twice, 85-86 and 89-90.

It was different for the Navy people.  They  would wait for housing and be there for a whole tour and a lot of times, extend for two years.  They could have their families there and it still counted as sea duty.  So, one tour, with an extension would get them five years of sea duty, with their families.  And there were three times weekly tanker flights ( from Kef, to Lakenheath in the UK) so catching a hop to Europe was easy. 

We didn't have those initiations in the Air Force, although I have been above the Arctic Circle and in the southern hemisphere.

They were very interesting indeed, especially the Shellback initiation. The Royal entourage always visited the proceedings. They included King Neptune, Davey Jones, the Royal Barber, the Royal Baby and the Royal Dentist. The Shellback ceremony was for crossing the Equator and Blue Nose was for crossing the Artic Circle. I've crossed the Artic Circle once and the Equator too many times.

I have only been to Iceland in the summer and I really liked it. The nature is completely different to the other nordic countries because of all the volcanic activity. I´m guessing they will be done with the shoot right before the holidays.

The pictures Kaley showed on her IG looked like a winter carnival atmosphere

Downtown Reykjavik.  It's a very pretty city, especially around the Christmas season.  It's also very clean, heated with hydrothermal steam and hydrothermal electric.  I really loved the city and also the city of Akureyri in the North, on a fjord.

Sounds great. Do you know how long they will film in Iceland?

Based on their previous international shooting times (Berlin, Thailand, Rome) it should  around two weeks, give or take a bit, for things going well or problems .
 

Funny thing, , she mentions how awesome the light is.  This time of year, there is only about 4 - 4.5 hours of light. So, if they are shooting daytime scenes it might take longer.

I would think they would be finished.  They got there last last week, this week and part of next for shooting would have them home by the weekend of the 18-19, would be my guess. 

It looks like they are wrapping up the shoot in Iceland.  

Sue McCormack ("Go.for.Sue" on instagram) the Senior Vice President for development at Yes, Norman productions did a  humorous IG post.  She posted a picture of the temperature in Reykjavik and LA, both were at 45 F.  She told LA to get it's shit together, cause she'll be home Sunday, the 19th.

Good to hear that they'll be home for Christmas. Probably be a bittersweet Christmas without Karl. She'll probably spend Christmas with mom, dad and sister. Then be with her friends.

From Variety

THE TOP 20 MOST ANTICIPATED STREAMING TITLES OF 2022

The Flight Attendant S2 (TBD 2022) 

S1 of “The Flight Attendant” was one of the surprise original TV successes of HBO Max in 2021 — the comedy series starring Kaley Cuoco has a 97% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes and was one of the top 10 most-viewed HBO Max series among TVision panel members in H1 2021, for example. This suggests that there is a fan base waiting for the second season of “The Flight Attendant,” which may also help HBO Max/WarnerMedia in the awards race. S1 of the series earned nine Emmy nominations (and nabbed one win) earlier in 2021.
