We all enjoy a good origin tale, and now that Ryan Murphy and Evan Romansky have brought Nurse Mildred Ratched of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to life, we can all discuss her character with confidence.
After combining their individual creative abilities, the duo will release Ratched, a Netflix series in 2020 that will explore Mildred’s life before the Oscar-winning picture was released in 1975. The series will consist of 10 episodes and will premiere on Netflix in 2020.
When viewers first saw the character, she appeared to be kind (though a little unorthodox and twisted), and they were immediately drawn in as they sought to figure out how she evolved into the ruthless nurse Louise Fletcher that was made famous.
With 48 million households tuning in throughout the first 28 days of the season, it became the most-watched premiere season of the year 2020.
Nonetheless, it should be emphasized that Netflix counts watching a series as at least two minutes, thus those figures should be treated with caution.
If we look to the future, will there be more episodes to look forward to?
Ratched Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Air?
While season two has been announced, there has been no news on when we may expect to see it on the screen for the first time.
As of December 2021, there have been no more developments in this regard.
Although the first season premiered back in 2020, during the height of the epidemic, production hasn’t even begun yet, because of the demanding schedules of the cast and Ryan Murphy’s ever-expanding list of programs to produce.
Ratched Season 2: Who’s in the Cast?
It’s also quite likely that Cynthia Nixon will reprise her role as Gwendolyn Briggs, her love interest and lawyer, and that Finn Wittrock will reprise his role as her brother, the twisted Edmund Tolleson.
In addition to Sophie Okonedo as Charlotte Wells and Brandon Flynn as Henry Osgood, Judy Davis will reprise her role as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Amanda Plummer will reprise her role as Louise, and Vincent D’Onofrio will reprise his role as Governor George Milburn, among others.
However, there are a few familiar characters who, tragically, did not make it through the inaugural season’s first episode.
Dr. Richard Hanover (Jon Jon Briones), nurse Huck Finnigan (Charlie Carver), Lenore Osgood (Sharon Stone), Dolly(Alice Englert), Charles Wainwright(Corey Stoll), and Harold (Jon Jon Briones) have all regrettably passed away unless they return in flashback form (Jermaine Williams).
Although no new cast members have been announced as of yet, we wouldn’t be shocked if some new patients made their way to Lucia State Hospital in the near future.
Ratched Season 2 Plot
Also quite probable is that Cynthia Nixon will repeat her part as Gwendolyn Briggs, her love interest and lawyer and that Finn Wittrock will reprise his role as her brother, the twisted Edmund Tolleson, in the upcoming film.
Other cast members who will repeat their roles include Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Amanda Plummer as Louise, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Governor George Milburn, among others. Sophie Okonedo will reprise her part as Charlotte Wells, while Brandon Flynn will reprise his role as Henry Osgood.
The first episode of the first season included a number of well-known characters who, unfortunately, did not make it through to the second episode.
All of the characters, including Dr. Richard Hanover (Jon Jon Briones), nurse Huck Finnigan (Charlie Carver), Lenore Osgood (Sharon Stone), Dolly(Alice Englert), Charles Wainwright(Corey Stoll), and Harold (Jon Jon Briones) have died away unless they appear in flashback form (Jermaine Williams).
It wouldn’t surprise us if some new patients found their way to Lucia State Hospital in the near future, despite the fact that no new cast members have been confirmed as of yet.
Ratched Season 2 Trailer: Has It Been Released Yet?
Unfortunately, there is no indication of a trailer at this time.
However, if you keep an eye on this page, we’ll make sure to keep you informed.
Typically, Netflix publishes the trailer around a month before the entire season is released, and this usually happens after we’ve seen teaser posters and learned when the season will be released.
We’ll know it’s on its way when all of these items start to arrive at our door!
