We should get used to seeing Ryan Murphy’s name around Netflix. Ratched is just the latest in the producer’s production deal with the streamer. Following in the footsteps of Emmy-nominated miniseries Hollywood, the horror origin story looks to be an Emmy winner in waiting. Since we won’t be watching the tenth season of American Horror Story on FX this fall, we’re going to need a good, spooky stand-in. AHS fans, here’s your next favorite binge watch.
Based on the 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, Emmy winner Sarah Paulson stars in Ratched as Nurse Mildred Ratched in the suspenseful origin story of one of the most iconic horror characters of all time. Nurse Ratched works as an asylum nurse at a psychiatric hospital in Northern California, presenting herself as the perfect picture of a nurse. However, the dark wheels are already in motion.
The series has already been renewed for a second season, ensuring more Ratched will be on the way. But first up, the nine-episode first season debuts on Sept. 18 as the perfect addition to the Murphy-verse for those missing out on a new season of AHS.
