When the 1st season of Ratched premiered in the year 2020, it served to divert the fans’ attention away from current events, with Sarah Paulson’s macabre twist on the One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest character captivating their imaginations in this horror series.
The series was also a hit with Netflix subscribers, as a total of 48 million turned in following its launch. After an agonizing cliffhanger at the end of the 1st season, all thoughts now shift to when the fans will get to see Ratched again. Aside from confirming that a new season is on the way, Murphy and Evan Romansky, the series’ co-creator have been tight-lipped about what’s next for the characters we met at Lucia State Hospital.
In this article, we’ve compiled everything we know so far about the highly anticipated second series. So sit back and relax; Nurse Ratched is getting ready to see her next patient. The 2nd season of Ratched is therefore much-awaited, but when we will get it continues to remain a mystery.
When Can We Expect Ratched Season 2?
The 2nd season of Ratched is yet to be given a specific release date by Netflix. Nothing has been said about when the 2nd season will begin filming, although we wouldn’t anticipate it to begin until the next year, that is, 2022.
Paulson said in an interview held in September that one knows anything about the 2nd season yet because Ryan, with the number of things he has going on, who knows when that’s all going to start, and then you throw in the pandemic and we think, well, who knows.
As far as we can tell, there haven’t been any new developments in the year since Paulson shot down a notion that the 2nd season will premiere in 2021 back in July. The 2nd season of Ratched is unlikely to premiere until the fall or winter of 2021, or even the spring of 2022. If this is the case, the movie may not be available on Netflix until late 2022.
Who’s in the Cast of Ratched Season 2?
At the end of the 1st season of Ratched, we saw Charlotte, played by Sophie Okonedo, and motel owner Louise played by Amanda Plummer to break out of the hospital and go to Mexico, where Mildred had fled with her sick spouse, Gwendolyn, played by Nixon.
While the finale does not guarantee that all of these actors will return in the 2nd season of Ratched, it does hint at which characters might appear again. The fans will also probably see California governor George Wilburn played by Vincent D’Onofrio along with Ratched’s brilliant arch-rival, Nurse Bucket, played by Judy Davis.
With the two-year time leap at the end of the 1st season, there’s a lot of time for these characters to relinquish to these several diseases and injuries along the road, especially since we closed on that startling and horrific reveal.
What Can We Expect From Ratched Season 2?
The 2nd season of Ratched has little plot information, although some cast interviews revealed a few tidbits. Cynthia Nixon indicated in an interview that there is going to be a lot of sadness and heartbreak up ahead. Paulson also said in an interview that she wants to explore the bits of Mildred Ratched that aren’t porous.
Paulson also confirmed in a separate interview that if the show is renewed for a 4th season, it will be set during the time of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the film that has inspired the program.
