Created by Evan Romansky and produced by Ryan Murphy, the highly-anticipated Ratched will be premiering on Netflix this fall. The show will serve as the origin story for the infamous Nurse Mildred Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, who will be played by none other than Sarah Paulson.

Without further ado, let’s dive right in. Here’s everything we know about the exciting new series.

Ratched release date

Season 1 of Ratched is expected to premiere on Netflix globally on September 18, 2020.

Ratched synopsis

Based on the 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, the new show will unveil the origins of the murderous titular character.

Nurse Ratched is the main antagonist of the novel, frequently displaying her manipulative ways and near-total control over her charges. The character also appeared in the 1975 film adaption, as well as on ABC’s Once Upon a Time.

The series will begin in 1947 and track the nurse’s violent progression through the healthcare system.

Ratched cast

The series stars the one and only Sarah Paulson as the fictional nurse.

Other main characters include Cynthia Nixon as Gwendolyn Briggs, Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Sharon Stone as Lenore Osgood, Corey Stoll as Charles Wainwright, and Finn Wittrock as Edmund Tolleson.

Also appearing is Jon Jon Briones as Dr. Richard Hanover, Charlie Carver as Huck Finnigan, Alice Englert as Dolly, Amanda Plummer as Louise, Sophie Okonedo as Charlotte Wells, and Vincent D’Onofrio as Governor George Milburn.

Paulson and Ryan Murphy have a long history of collaborating on projects. She has appeared in most seasons of Murphy’s hit horror anthology series American Horror Story, and she won an Emmy Award for her portrayal of prosecutor Marcia Clark in his series American Crime Story.

Paulson also played Geraldine Page in Murphy’s miniseries Feud: Bette and Joan. All of their previous combined efforts have been amazing, so it’s safe to say that fans can expect to be blown away by the new show.
