The fact that Ratched was ranked first in the Nielsen ratings and revealed to have had 972 million minutes of viewing time proves without a doubt how well-liked it has been by people all around the world. 48 million people watched the show on Netflix in its first four weeks, which is a significant accomplishment in and of itself!

For those unversed, Ryan Murphy and Evan Romansky collaborated on the creation of the American psychological thriller television series Ratched, which stars Sarah Paulson as Nurse Mildred Ratched. It is a prequel to Milo Forman’s 1975 movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, which was based on Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel of the same name. It shows Mildred Ratched’s life before the events in the movie, but in California rather than Oregon. An order for a two-season series of Ratched was made. The first season debuted on September 18, 2020, on Netflix.

Here’s everything that fans need to know about the second season of the series.

Ratched Season 2: Plot

Netflix hasn’t formally announced the series cancellation yet, so until we hear from the show’s creators or actors, we’ll simply have to wait and see what happens. According to the reports, Following “Mildred and Edmund,” the first season finale, in which viewers learned that Edmund was about to be put to death via electric chair, the story continues up immediately. Ratched and Gwendolyn unsuccessfully plead for leniency with the governor. Bucket meets them there. Ratched offers a strategy in which she will mercilessly murder Edmund herself. Charlotte makes an appearance at the hospital, claiming to be Hanover, and makes a vow to spare Edmund from death.

We are confident that the program won’t return to the streaming platform this year because production on the second season doesn’t appear to start anytime soon in the upcoming months and there has been no formal notice confirming the series discontinuation online. But if we have to guess, there’s a chance the series won’t come back on Netflix until no later than 2024.
