Ratched was commissioned as a two-season series but it looks like Ratched Season 2 will never happen. This was the third major show crafted by Ryan Murphy released on Netflix, but it’s been over two years and we know nothing about the show’s future. Is Ratched Season 2 Coming Or Canceled?
Ratched is a prequel of the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, published in 1962 and adapted into a film of the same name in 1975. However, the series is a complete package in itself and one does not need to have seen the original film to enjoy it. The American horror series received a mixed critical reception with RottenTomatoes giving it an average score of 62%. The series was nominated for 4 Primetime Emmy Awards.
According to data released by Netflix, Ratched was streamed in 48 million households within 28 days of its release, making it the most-watched series in the debut month of 2020. Ratched is the second most-watched series in history in its debut month, sitting behind The Witcher, which was viewed in 76 million households. The show’s popularity reinforces its return for season 2, but when? Is its high production cost of between $10-$15 million for an episode getting in the way?
