Sarah Paulson's 'Ratched' Is Definitely Getting A Second Season
If you spent the weekend binge-watching Netflix's Ratched, then good news - the series will be getting a second season.
Starring Sarah Paulson, the show is based on the 1962 novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, and focuses on Nurse Ratched, before she became the cold-hearted mental health nurse portrayed in the novel.
As Netflix explain: "The series is set to be an origin story of sorts taking us back to before Nurse Ratched had evolved to the monster by exploiting people in the mental health care system."
When the show was originally commissioned by Netflix, the streamer ordered two seasons, which means we're definitely going to be getting a second instalment! However, the bad news is it might not be for some time.
Speaking at an online press conference, Sarah explained that due to the pandemic, and producer Ryan Murphy having a number of different projects on the go, it's currently unknown when Season 2 will begin.
"Nobody knows anything about season two because Ryan, with the number of things he has going on, who's to know when when that's all going to begin, and you throw in the pandemic and then we think well who knows," she explained.

Speaking to The Wrap, Sarah added: "I like to think about it like The Crown just because I'm a desperate fan of The Crown and the amount of time I have to wait for another season always makes me so f***ing crazy. But then when it comes I'm just like a raved nut just sitting there and I devour it.
"So I like to put us into that timeframe in my mind that if people consume it the way I hope they do, they will anxiously be waiting for the next instalment when it does come. And it'll make it that much sweeter."
And considering it's been receiving rave reviews, we reckon fans will be desperate for a second instalment.
Ever since it landed last week, viewers have been taking to Twitter to praise the show.
One person called it the best they'd seen this year, writing: "#Ratched is the best show I've watched this year. Thank you @MsSarahPaulson."
While another added: "Ratched has to be one of the best shows I've watched in a long time. The plot, the acting."
We might have a long wait, but we reckon it'll be worth it!
