Sarah Paulson plays the titular character of Nurse Mildred Ratched in the American psychological thriller streaming television series Ratched, which was conceived by Evan Romansky, was produced by Ryan Murphy, and is available to watch on Netflix. Ratched Season 2 is expected to release in 2023. It is a prequel to the film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which was directed by Milos Forman in 1975 and was based on Ken Kesey’s novel of the same name, which was published in 1962.
It depicts the life of Mildred Ratched prior to the events that are depicted in the film, albeit in a different state (California as opposed to Oregon). Ratched was given a series order for a total of two seasons by Netflix, and the first season debuted on the streaming service on September 18, 2020.
Ratched season 2: Is it coming to Netflix in June 2022?
Regrettably, Netflix does not currently have plans to release Ratched Season 2 in June of 2022. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a gripping thriller produced by Netflix that is based on Ken Kasey’s novel of the same name, which was published in 1962. It seems like an eon ago since we last checked in with the cruel Nurse Mildred Ratched, who was portrayed by Sarah Paulson of American Horror Story.
The first episode of the series was released on Netflix in September of 2020, and it immediately became a tremendous hit with viewers. In fact, it was so popular that it was nominated for four prime-time Emmys. Ratched was the “most-viewed series premiere of 2020,” according to Netflix, with 48 million households across the world turning in to watch the drama within 28 days of its release.
Therefore, it should not come as a surprise when the streaming service revealed not long after the show’s premiere that it has already placed an order for a second season of the show. However, it has been close to two years after the original promise, and we are still waiting for the release of the new episodes that were promised to us. So, what exactly is preventing the release from happening?
Despite this, the release date for Ratched Season 2 has not been announced as of yet. We anticipate having it proclaimed by the time 2022 comes to a close.
Who Will Be Joining the Ratched Season 2 Cast?
Even though the official cast list has not been finalized just yet, it is highly expected that prominent cast members will return to their roles and go on with the storyline of the series into season 2.
They are Sarah Paulson, who will play the title character of Nurse Mildred Ratched; Finn Wittrock, who will play serial murderer Edmund Tolleson; and Amanda Plummer, who will play one of Tolleson’s accomplices, Sophie Okonedo.
Alongside Judy Davis, who will play Nurse Betsy Bucket, we are anticipating the return of Cynthia Nixon in the role of Gwendolyn Briggs, who was Ratched’s love interest in the original.
Ratched Season 2 Plot Revealed?
The first season concluded in a manner that was very different from what Ryan Murphy and the other writers had intended. Instead of Nurse Ratched and Briggs beginning a new life together in Mexico, the season ended with Nurse Bucket seizing control of Lucia State.
After being informed that she had cancer, Briggs learned that she was in remission as a result of a ground-breaking treatment that was associated with mistletoe.
But she was supposed to pass away from the beginning, and we certainly can’t declare that she’s out of the woods just yet.
Nixon revealed this information, saying, “It was not going to have a happy ending at the conclusion of season one, and changed it.” “There were a number of characters that were going to be killed off in the beginning, but then they changed their minds.”
On top of that, Ratched’s brother Edmund is currently on the run alongside Ratched’s lover Louise and Charlotte, who has numerous personalities.
After learning that his sister had intended to kill him, he has decided that he will not let that go unpunished and may now start on the hunt for revenge.
There is no question that the two people will cross paths once more, but will they be able to repair their relationship?
The series is headed in the direction of the happenings in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, but how we will get there is anyone’s guess right now.
No matter what takes place, Mildred will undoubtedly be put through the ringer in order to shape into the vengeful and power-hungry nurse that we are all familiar with.
“I believe if we wind up at that age, it would be more about Nurse Ratched’s life when she turned the key in her white uniform,” she said in an interview with The Wrap. “Coming back into her house after those days at the hospital with all the events that took place there.”
“What you’re probably going to see is a Mildred who has now become even more difficult, because the thing that kept her soft was the part of her that was engaged in the love and protection and the desire for absolution that related to her brother. Now that she has become even more difficult, you’re probably going to see her.
“I have no idea who she’ll turn out to be now that it’s been taken away. But I have a very good feeling that she is getting more and further apart from her humanity and her heart.”
With that being said, we expect the second series to pick up from where the first season left off.
