The upcoming season of Ratched Season 2 will be the most anticipated one. The first season was a huge success, and now everyone is waiting for this next installment. What will happen in it? How many episodes are there going to be? All these questions have been answered!
Ratched season 2 release date: when to expect it
There’s no confirmed release date for Ratched season 2, and – given the scheduling issues caused by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic – even early production plans might end up being delayed further.
We know Paulson’s going back to work soon – more on that below – but given she’s explicitly confirmed it’s not on Ratched’s second series, it’s safe to assume we’ll see Ratched season 2 later rather than sooner.
As it’s unlikely filming will commence until early next year, we probably won’t see Ratched season 2 on Netflix until late 2021 at the very earliest. Watch this space, though – we’ll confirm the release date just as soon as we can.
Who is Nurse Ratchet?
Well, let me tell you everything about her! She was born Mildred “Molly” Stevens in 1900 and led a fairly normal childhood living with her parents and four siblings in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
She graduated from nursing school in 1924 and had a job at the local hospital. Still, her life took an interesting turn when she met Anna Quayle – the wife of Dr. Harold Quayle, who was one of the doctors working at Michigan Memorial Hospital, where she worked.
Mildred became friends with Mrs. Quayle and eventually started an affair with him without his wife’s knowledge or approval (despite being married herself). She moved to Arizona with him, making it easy for them to have their trysts before moving back to Tennessee after he got divorced so that they could live together officially in the 1930s – 1940s.
At the close of Ratched season 1, we saw the “star” patient of Lucia (Finn Wittrock) team up with patient Charlotte (Sophie Okonedo) and motel owner Louise (Amanda Plummer) to escape the hospital and make a break for Mexico, where Mildred had fled with her unwell partner, Gwendolyn (Nixon).
While the ending doesn’t confirm all these performers will definitely reprise their roles in Ratched season 2, it certainly hints at which characters might pop up again.
We’ll also likely see the reappearance of Californian governor George Wilburn (Vincent D’Onofrio) and – fingers crossed – Ratched’s brilliant arch-rival, Nurse Bucket (Judy Davis).
What’s the plot?
We predict that in Ratched season two, we’ll see the story of how Wilburn – who’s been on a power trip since his first appearance in Season One – becomes increasingly unhinged, and Mildred struggles to keep her hospital running with dwindling resources.
At this time, it is not known what will happen to Charlotte or Gwendolyn during the second series, but there are sure to be more dramatic moments as they fight for their lives against an all-powerful oppressor.
However, after witnessing Meechum (Bobby Cannavale) murder Dr. Nathan Riggs (Peter Jacobson), audiences may fear another major death coming up before the end of the show.
Ratched season three predictions:
“I think it wouldn’t have been interesting to me to explore the parts of Mildred Ratched that aren’t porous,” Paulson told Variety. “In the movie, she is calcified, there’s hardness, nothing ekes out, and I remember when I first saw the movie thinking that she was absolutely a villain and evil and all this stuff.
“And then when I rewatched it before we started, I thought, you know this is a woman who is a victim of a patriarchal infrastructure in this hospital, and could it be considered that she didn’t have any choice about whether or not she can access her heart in her way if she could bring her femininity and her womanhood to the job.”
