Ratched Season 2: Release Date Status, Cast, Plot, Trailer and Everything We Know So Far

The psychological thriller mysterious drama is happening but the question is when? Let’s check the current status of Ratched Season 2.

The dramatic mysterious thriller Ratched, is based on the character of Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest illustrated by Ken Kesey. This Netflix show is created by Evan Romansky and developed by Ryan Murphy. It was announced that Netflix ordered 2 seasons on September 6, 2017, after winning the bid against Hulu and Apple. 

The series premiered its first season in September 2020. This thriller has attracted a large fan-base, because of the engaging and suspicious story throughout season 1. The story revolves around an insane nurse named Mildred Ratched, who presents dark sides and unsettling suspicious experiments on patients at Lucia State Hospital in Northern California. If we talk about the reception of the show, it received an overall mixed review. On Rotten Tomatoes it is rated 6.24/10 and 50/100 on Meta Critics. Instead of these ratings, this series has a number of viewers and since long, there has been demand for season 2. As it was officially confirmed that  fans will get season 2 as well, there arises a doubt of the Ratched Season 2 release date. We have clubbed the latest updates on Ratched Season 2 below.

Release Date of Ratched Season 2: Is it happening?

Yes, it will premiere… The answer is in the favor of the show’s enthusiasts. However, there are no words on the release date of the next installment.  Netflix has not announced the premiere date yet. The show received average reviews but it did not hinder the arrival of another season.There was news that Netflix ordered two seasons of this complicated drama, simultaneously, of which one season aired on September 18, 2020 followed by eight episodes. It has been so long on the updates for the next season, but it will probably be on air.

As per some reports, there are major two reasons for the delay: the global pandemic and tight schedule, there are various shows scheduled for the makers in the meantime. So there are probable chances that this show may face a setback to continue the story. There are chances that the show will resume filming in 2022 and we will get season 2 somewhere in 2023. If anything comes out  officially, we will update this space.

Cast: Who will reprise the roles in season 2 ?

Till now, the makers have not given any confirmation on the cast members of the forthcoming story. We expect that the old cast will reprise their roles as the story is on-going and there is a lot more yet to explore. However there was some mis-coordination on the presentation of the cast according to the critics. The new season may come with a few replacements as well, or we may get some additional characters. It will totally depend on the requirements of the plot line. 

As we have seen in season 1, there were the demise of some characters also, so we could get a flashback role. The makers could bring the below characters in the frame of season 2.

  • Sarah Paulson as Nurse Mildred Ratched
  • Cynthia Nixon as Gwendolyn Briggs
  • Finn Wittrock as Edmund Tolleson
  • Jon Jon Briones as Dr. Richard Hanover
  • Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket
  • Charlie Carver as Huck Finnigan
  • Sharon Stone as Lenore Osgood
  • Alice Englert as Nurse Dolly
  • Corey Stoll as Charles Wainwright
  • Vincent D’Onofrio as Governor George Willburn
  • Annie Starke as Lily Cartwright
  • Amanda Plummer as Louise

Ratched Season 2: What will be the storyline?

As of now there are no specific details or hints on season 2. It is pretty complex to predict the upcoming storyline. The story is packed with thrill with a touch of horror mystery. In the last episode, we have seen Ratched planning to kill Edmund but Charlotte swears to save Edmund at any cost. She frees Edmund from the conspiracy plot of Ratched. In the coming story we will see how will find whom, first? Who will be saved?.. Whether Ratched will be killed by Edmund, Bucket and Gwendolyn.

Undoubtedly, the story is going to be super exciting as it will continue this thriller with a lot more suspicious events at the hospital. The story of season 2 will decide whether Ratched will get success in her evil thoughts, or is there any tragic story behind this insane behaviour of Mildered. The upcoming season guarantees another engaging story, which will surely enthrall us.
