Created by Evan Romansky and developed by Ryan Murphy, Ratched is a prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a 1975 movie.
Set in 1940’s, this TV series follows the story of Mildred Ratched who becomes a nurse in an asylum called The Lucia State Hospital. At that time, a serial killer named Edmund Tolleson who is said to have mental disorders is sent to the asylum instead of prison. It turns out that Edmund is Ratched’s brother, and Ratched is planning to set him free. But apparently, things do not always go the way we planned, and everything is just going south for Ratched.
And after a very intriguing first season, when will fans be able to see what happens next to the nurse in Ratched season 2?
Ratched Season 2: Release Date
Since the beginning, Netflix (Santa Clarita Diet) has planned to make two seasons of Ratched which consists of 18 episodes. The first season only consists of eight episodes with the duration of 45 to 62 minutes each episode, that means Ratched season 2 will have 10 episodes.
It also means that fans can be optimistic that there will be Ratched season 2. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any official announcement regarding Ratched season 2 release date. And due to COVID-19 pandemic, there is possibility that the filming process will be delayed.
Therefore, we can expect to see Ratched season 2 sometime in 2022 at the earliest or even in 2023.
Ratched Season 2: What Will It be About?
Since the first season ends with a huge cliffhanger, Ratched season 2 will start from where it left off.
In the first season, we can see how Ratched confesses her love to Gwendolyn. Edmund is also going to face death sentence by being electrocuted in a chair. Try to spare him from the agony, Mildred decided to euthanize Edmund.
But Charlotte managed to save Edmund and both of them run away. Knowing that his own sister was going to kill him, Edmund goes furious. He reveals that he has killed seven nurses. He also swears that he will find and murder Ratched.
So in Ratched season 2, we pretty much will see how Ratched has to save her life from Edmund, and how Edmund will haunt her. Edmund can also targeting Gwendolyn, knowing how important she is for Ratched.
So pretty much in Ratched season 2, we will see the more intense confrontation between this brother and sister.
