Ratched season 2 is likely to happen on Netflix but isn’t confirmed yet
Ratched season 1 may have had some mixed reviews, but they’re not too much to worry about. Ratched season 2 is more than likely to happen on Netflix.
It’s not yet confirmed, but as Oprah Magazine points out, there’s a strong chance that the series is going to be picked up for another run. It’s almost guaranteed at this point.
For those who haven’t watched it yet, we’re not going to share any spoilers in this post. You can watch the first season without knowing anything that happens. We’re going to discuss the endgame in mind, which involves the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
Netflix has little reason to cancel Ratched
Unless the viewing numbers have been terrible, there’s simply no reason to cancel Ratched after season 1. Let’s just look at the fact that Ryan Murphy has signed an overall deal with the streaming service. Netflix is going to want to bring as much Murphy stuff as possible. It would take an utter flop for Ratched season 2 not to happen.
But it’s not just about Murphy. The series has an end point in mind. It all comes down to the fact that this is a prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. This is a series that has a point culturally that it needs to get to. The creators know where it needs to get to for it to be a success, and the first season hasn’t gotten there.
We know where Nurse Mildred Ratched ends up. The original has always been intriguing. So fans of the novel or the 1975 movie are going to tune into the series just to see the creative decisions made.
And we have to remember that American Horror Story fans want to see more of this type of horror. They want to see Murphy back at those roots that made the first few seasons of AHS some of the best TV viewing going.
We’ll hear about the renewal within the next couple of months, more than likely. And it’s probably going to be good news about Ratched season 2.
