When Ratched season 1 premiered in 2020, it helped take our minds off of real-world events, with Sarah Paulson’s sinister take on the One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest character capturing our imaginations in this campy horror series. Netflix subscribers enjoyed it as well, with 48 million tuning in after its premiere. Season 2 of Ratched is eagerly anticipated, but when we’ll see it is unknown.
After ending the first season on an agonizing cliffhanger, all thoughts now turn to when we’ll see Ratched again. Aside from confirming that a new series is on the way, Murphy and co-creator Evan Romansky have been tight-lipped about what’s next for the characters we met at Lucia State Hospital, but to save you searching the internet, we’ve compiled everything we know so far about the highly anticipated second series. So, sit back and relax – Nurse Ratched is ready for her next patient.
Ratched Season 2 is Renewed or Not?
Ratched season 2 has been officially renewed.
Ratched Season 2 Release Date
There is currently no set release date for Ratched Season 2. Nothing has been said about when season 2 will begin filming, but we wouldn’t expect it before 2022.
Who’s in the cast of Ratched Season 2?
Ratched would not exist without Sarah Paulson, our leading lady.
Cynthia Nixon will almost certainly reprise her role as Gwendolyn Briggs, her love interest and lawyer, and Finn Wittrock will play her deranged brother, Edmund Tolleson.
The cast members who are expected to return include Sophie Okonedo as Charlotte Wells, Brandon Flynn as Henry Osgood, Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Amanda Plummer as Louise, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Governor George Milburn.
There are, however, a few characters who did not survive the first season.
We’ve seen the last of Dr. Richard Hanover (Jon Jon Briones), nurse Huck Finnigan (Charlie Carver), Lenore Osgood (Sharon Stone), Dolly (Alice Englert), and Charles Wainwright (Corey Stoll), and Harold (Jon Jon Briones) (Jermaine Williams).
Despite the fact that no new cast members have been announced, we wouldn’t be surprised if new patients arrive at Lucia State.

Ratched Season 2 Plot
Season two ended very differently than Ryan Murphy and the writers had hoped, with Nurse Ratched and Briggs starting a new life together in Mexico and Nurse Bucket taking over Lucia State.
Briggs, who was diagnosed with cancer, discovered that she was in remission thanks to a revolutionary mistletoe-related medicine.
But she was supposed to die – and we wouldn’t say she’s out of the woods just yet.
“At the end of season one, it was not going to be a happy ending, and [the creators] changed it,” Nixon told OprahMag.com. “There were a number of characters who were supposed to die but changed their minds.”
Furthermore, Ratched’s brother Edmund is on the run with Charlotte, who has multiple personalities, and his girlfriend, Louise.
He’s not going to let his sister’s plan to kill him go unpunished, and he may now seek vengeance.
The two will undoubtedly cross paths again, but will they be able to mend fences?
Ultimately, the series is heading towards the events of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, but how we get there is currently unknown.
Whatever happens, Mildred will be put through the wringer in order to shape her into the evil and power-hungry nurse we all know she is.
“I think if we end up in that era, it would be more about Nurse Ratched’s life when she turned the key in her white uniform, coming back into her house from those days at the hospital with all those events,” she told The Wrap.
