Netflix’s Upcoming Series, Ratched, is a Prequel to One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

One of the world’s most hatable characters will be brought back to life again.

From the creator of American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy, alongside Ian Brennan, Netflix’s forthcoming series RATCHED, chronicles the origin story of diabolical nurse Mildred Ratched. A brainchild of Evan Romansky, Mildred was one of the most unforgettable characters in 1975’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. The new Ratched will be played by another name fresh off AHS, Sarah Paulson. If these names we’ve mentioned are not enough to hype you up for this new Netflix series, we don’t know what will. 


As per Netflix’s official plot description, in 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind.

On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred’s stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smoldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born.

Netflix’s Ratched stars Sarah Paulson as Mildred Ratched, Cynthia Nixon as Gwendolyn Briggs, Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket, Sharon Stone as Lenore Osgood, Jon Jon Briones as Dr. Richard Hanover, Finn Wittrock as Edmund Tolleson, Charlie Carver as Huck, Alice Englert as Dolly, Amanda Plummer as Louise, Corey Stoll as Charles Wainwright, Sophie Okonedo as  Charlotte Wells, Brandon Flynn as Henry Osgood and Vincent D’Onofrio as Gov.
