Sarah Paulson stars as Nurse Mildred Ratched in the American psychological thriller Ratched, which was written by Evan Romansky, developed by Ryan Murphy, and airs on the streaming service Netflix.
Set in California rather than Oregon, this story is a prologue to the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, directed by Milo Forman and based on Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel of the same name.
The first two seasons of Ratched have been ordered. Netflix debuted the first season on September 18, 2020. Sarah Paulson expressed doubt about a second season in an interview with Variety published in August 2022.
When Will Season 2 Be Released?
A straight-to-series order for two seasons and 18 episodes of Ratched was announced by Netflix in September of 2017. Season 1 of Ratched featured eight episodes, therefore Season 2 is likely to feature ten. Fans are worried that Season 2 won’t happen despite the earlier confirmation of a two-season order.
Ryan Murphy, creator of Ratched, announced in June 2023 that he would be leaving Netflix to work for Disney. Murphy’s departure raised doubts about the show’s future on the service, although Ratched eventually returned.
Sarah Paulson, who plays Ratched on the show, told Variety in August 2022 that she has no idea if a second season is being planned. It’s been almost three years since the premiere of the first season, and yet production on the second has not yet begun.
It is unlikely that filming will begin soon due to the ongoing strikes by the Writers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild. If production is given the green light in the first half of 2024, the earliest the second season of Ratched might premiere is 2025.

The gripping drama series Ratched is about an institution nurse named Mildred Ratched and covers the narrative of how she got her start. In 1947, Mildred travels to Northern California in the hopes of finding work at a famous psychiatric hospital.
At this facility, a number of novel and unnerving tests on the human mind had recently begun. The wheels are always turning, and as Mildred begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, her stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born. Mildred is on a covert mission, and she presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be.
