The second season of Ratched is highly likely considering the series is about the character of the same name from Ken Kesey’s 1962 novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
The first series is set in 1947, however, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest takes place in the ‘50s.
Speaking to Oprah Mag, Ratched star Sarah Paulson discussed the future of the show, revealing the plan to bring the show to the same timeline as the book.
She said: “We have an end game. There’s an end to the story as we know it, culturally.
“But so little is known about Mildred Ratched in the movie and the book.
“There’s nothing about her past. She’s a monolith. It’s almost like she’s not really a person.”
If Ratched is given the green light, fans can expect the series to air in September 2021 at the earliest.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there is a possibility work on Ratched season two may face delays.
Express.co.uk will update this article when more information.
