Ratched Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Creators: Evan Romansky, Ryan Murphy
Stars: Sarah Paulson, Alfred Rubin Thompson, Judy Davis
Netflix is reviving a classic character and Ryan Murphy will be reuniting with Sarah Paulson outside of American Horror Story. Here’s everything we know about season 1 of Ratched that’s due out on Netflix globally in September 2020.
The series comes to Netflix with the involvement of Ryan Murphy who has an overall output deal with Netflix. The prolific producer is behind some of the biggest hits on Netflix.
It was picked up by Netflix back in September 2017 after a heavy bidding war over the title with Hulu and Apple also reportedly wanting the show although it’s not technically part of Murphy’s expansive output deal.
The series primarily focuses on the character of Nurse Ratchet. She’s a character from the classic 1962 novel named One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and the movie that followed thirteen years later in 1975. With that said, the character has also popped up in ABC’s Once Upon A Time.
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.
Sadly, as of the time of republishing, the movie isn’t available on Netflix anywhere in the world.
Fox 21 Television Studios is behind the series which may come as a surprise given its owned by Disney now. However, the production company is set up to be an arms dealer for a wide range of networks. For Netflix alone, it’s working on Ratched and The Politician.
The studio is also currently developing projects for multiple other streaming providers. It’s producing Hitman for Hulu, Nevelot for Apple TV+, Tales from the Loop for Amazon Prime as well as titles for Quibi, Showtime and USA Network.
Evan Romansky is the main writer behind the show but as we mentioned above, Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan are also involved. Among the directors for the series include Nelson Cragg, Jennifer Lynch, and Ryan Murphy.
Sarah Paulson is going to be leading the show by playing Nurse Mildred Ratched. Sarah is mostly known for her other roles on Murphy titles such as her recent role in American Horror Story season eight. It’s also worth noting she appeared in the wildly successful Netflix movie from 2018, Bird Box.
Among the other members of the cast include Jon Jon Briones, Finn Wittrock, Charlie Carver, Judy Davis, and Harriet Harris.
In May 2020, we learned that Sophie Okonedo had been cast in season one. Okonedo previously starred in After Earth.
