In the movie and TV business, spin-offs and origin stories are always risky. But Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson, the dynamic team behind American Horror Story, made their One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest prequel a huge hit. So, we hope that the date that was given for the second season of Ratched wasn’t just a dream.
Ratched looked into the past of Nurse Mildred Ratched, one of the best movie baddies, and showed how she became the character that everyone loved to hate. Ratched was Netflix’s most-watched new show in 2020, with some of the best numbers for a new show ever in its first season.
Speculation about when Ratched season 2 will come out?
Netflix bought two seasons of Ratched, but the second season hasn’t been worked on since 2020. So, it won’t happen until at least 2025, if it ever does.
The cast’s busy schedules and the end of Ryan Murphy’s five-year deal with Netflix are two reasons why work on season 2 hasn’t begun, even though Netflix originally ordered two seasons.
We don’t think Ratched will come back before 2025, but we wouldn’t hold our breath. Murphy is back to work as a producer for Disney as of June 2023. In August 2022, Variety said that Sarah Paulson, who plays the lead in the show, doesn’t know if there will be a second season.
What to expect in Season 2 of Ratched?
Sarah Paulson, Cynthia Nixon, and Finn Wittrock would all be back for season 2 of Ratched.
Because season 2 might not happen at all, there is no approved cast list. A good guess is still possible, though!
Unfortunately, a lot of people died too soon in season 1, but those who lived would come back. But because of the two-year time jump at the end of season 1, it’s possible that some characters will die outside of the show.

What would the second season of Ratched be about?
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is Ratched’s final game. This means that season 2 would have to show what happened to Ratched that made her lose all of her humanity.
With Nurse Ratched and Briggs (who had miraculously been cured of cancer) running away to Mexico together, the end of season 1 was less American Horror Story and more Thelma and Louise. Nurse Bucket was left to run Lucia State.
We’re sure that this happy finish won’t last, though. Ratched’s brother Edmund is on the run and wants to kill her. Also, because this is a flashback series, we already know how Ratched’s story will end. It seems likely that Edmund, Louise, and Charlotte will play a part in her downfall.
In the meantime, Netflix put out this video that talks about Nurse Ratched’s past and impact on both big and small screens. It helps you understand where the character is coming from and what makes her unique.
Where can you watch season 2 of Ratched?
Since Ratched is only available on Netflix, season 2 will only be available on that service, if it comes out at all.
There are a few different price levels for Netflix, which is good news because it gives you choices. Right now, you can watch all of season 1 of Ratched on Netflix. Season 2 doesn’t look likely right now, but there’s a lot of new stuff on Netflix that you can watch instead.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is the movie that Ratched is based on. You can buy or rent it on Amazon Prime Video, and you can sign up for it here.
