So, read out the following article to get to know everything we know so far about this most viewed series on Netflix.
What Are the Speculations About the Release Date of Ratched Season 2?
Well, we have good news as well as bad news. The good news is that you don’t have to get worried about whether the second season of Ratched is happening or not. It was originally announced that it will be a two-season series.
So it is safe to say that it is definitely coming up with a second season soon.
The bad news is that we cannot say exactly when Ratched season 2 will come out. There are plenty of factors which are responsible for the delay of season 2 . It including the busy schedules of the cast, the COVID-19 pandemic and Ryan Murphy is also busy with several other projects.
It all means that the production of Ratched season 2 is not even started yet. So fans need to wait until we get any news from official sources.
But, we will surely update you on any development so do check out our articles regularly and get all trending news here.
What Are the Speculations About the Story of Ratched Season 2?
Well, at the ending of season 1 that was a less American horror story and it was more relatable to Thelma and Louse. They both with Nurse Ratched and Briggs who were cured of cancer fled to Mexico together and they leave Nurse Bucket to take over Lucia State.
But we think that this happy ending of the first season isn’t going to last. In the original story not only Ratched’s brother who was planning and going to kill her but also as a prequel series we knew how the story of Ratched is going to an end.
The show’s last destination is meant to set the scene for One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which will show us how exactly Nurse Ratched became the evil, twisted megalomaniac we meet in the original film.
All this ultimately means to happen in season 2, whatever happens. They will have the job of showing just what happens to cause Ratched to lose her last shreds of humanity
And we suspect that Edmund along with his girlfriend Louise and Charlotte, who has dissociative identity disorder, will have something to do with Ratched’s inevitable downfall.
Interview with Paulson
In September 2020, while speaking with The Wrap, Paulson seemed to suggest that her character’s war with her brother along with her discovery of his murderous nature will take the main focus of the story— and come at the expense of her soul.
“What you’re probably going to see is a Mildred who has now become even harder, because the thing that kept her soft was the part of her that was engaged in the love and the protection and the desire for absolution, as it pertained to her brother,” she said “Now that that’s gone, I don’t know who she’ll become. But further and further away from her heart and her humanity, I can be pretty sure about that.”
Is the Trailer of Ratched Season 2 Out Now?
Sadly, there is no sign of any trailer release of Ratched season 2 yet by the makers of the show. And with this, there is also no news of filming of the show started yet which is sad news for the fans. Till then we will wait for a while for any kinds of teasers or pictures from official sources.
The teaser trailer of the first season of Ratched was come out on Netflix just a month before its release date. So we can predict that once the release date of Ratched season 2 gets announced. Then the trailer will come out a month before its release.
What Are the Speculations About the Cast of Ratched Season 2?
In the first season of Ratched, the nurse Ratched and Gwendolyn ended the season by hiding away in Mexico. But we have a feeling that they won’t be able to resist the pull of St Lucia for long.
We believe that Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon will return back to take the centre stage in the series. These two lead characters will return along with Finn Wittrock who played the role of Edmund Tolleson and he will take revenge on the pair.
