What is the Basis of ‘Ratched’?
Evan Romansky and Ryan Murphy are responsible for creating the original Netflix series “Ratched,” which is a thriller/drama. The television series serves as a kind of prologue to the film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” which was directed by Milo Forman in 1975. It was conceived as a response to the novel of the same name written by Ken Kesey in 1962.
The story of ‘Ratched, centers on a young nurse working in a mental facility named Mildred Ratched. Ratched begins to transform into a cold and tyrannical person, and she ultimately becomes a human monster to the inmates she cares for. It gives an account of her life prior to the occurrences that were shown in the film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
Ratched Season 2 Release Date
The debut of the show’s first season took place in September 2020. Despite the fact that it was renewed quite some time ago, there have been no official updates regarding when the second season would be made available to watch.
Although an official confirmation has not yet been provided, the debut of the second season of Ratched is expected to take place sometime in 2022. It’s possible that the upcoming season will have the same number of episodes as the last one: eight.
Ratched Season 2 Cast
Nurse Ratched and Gwendolyn spent the end of season 1 hiding out in Mexico, but we don’t think they’ll be able to stay away from St. Lucia for long. We think that Sarah Paulson, Cynthia Nixon, and Finn Wittrock will all be back for season 2 of Ratched. Finn Wittrock, who plays Edmund Tolleson, seems determined to get back at Sarah Paulson and Cynthia Nixon.
A lot of characters from season 1 died too soon, but those who have survived so far will probably come back as well. However, the two-year time jump at the end of season 1 makes it possible that some characters may have died off-screen.
At least for now, we can probably assume that some of the following characters and actors will be back: Jon Jon Briones (Dr. Richard Hanover), Charlie Carver (nurse Huck Finnigan), Sharon Stone (Lenore Osgood), Alice Englert (Dolly), Corey Stoll (Charles Wainwright), and Jermaine Williams (Harold).
Ratched Season 2 Plot
Ratched moves to Mexico at the end of the first season to get away from her brother Edmund, who is on a killing spree and has her as his main target. Edmund and Ratched are headed straight for a collision, which should happen in season 2.
Ratched is ready to get even with the killer, and she tells him that she’s done trying to help him and that he’s now in her sights. Ratched and Edmund are playing a game of cat and mouse that could kill them both.
We can expect season 2 to keep building up to a final showdown that will happen no matter what. Even though this is a prequel, and we pretty much know who will live, it will be interesting to see how everything goes down.
Fans of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest might be disappointed to hear that the first season of Ratched doesn’t have many direct connections to the book. Paulson, on the other hand, has already hinted that the show will gradually move toward Kesey’s story. There’s a good chance that showrunner Ryan Murphy could bring in the book’s narrator, Chief Bromden, to point the way to the events of the book.

Ratched, as an exclusive Netflix series, is only available on the popular streaming service. Ratched season 1 episodes are now available to watch on Netflix. If you want to see what Ratched is based on, you can buy or rent One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest from Amazon Prime Video.

Evan Romansky and Ryan Murphy made the first season of “Ratched.” The TV show is kind of like the beginning of the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” The second season of the show is likely to start airing in 2022.
