Ratched is the top Summer release on Netflix
TVscorecards keeps track of several indicators to measure a series’ success and Ratched scored as the top performing series of the summer for Netflix, ahead of the super popular Cobra Kai, Cursed, Away and Warrior Nun. We estimate that over 30 million households will watch Ratched in the next 12 months (based on the data we’ve seen in September when it was released).
Ratched is the pre-quel to the popular movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest“. The series shows how Nurse Ratched became the manipulative and controlling villain in the 1975 movie featuring Jack Nicholson.
Ratched season 2 is already approved by Netflix – coming early 2021 (estimated)
Ratched already has a season 2 order from Netflix with a total of 18 episodes already approved. Thankfully for those already enjoying Ratched, Netflix picked up two seasons from the start, with 10 more episodes on top of the 8 episodes alreayd released. Netflix has yet to announce a release date for season 2, but we believe it will come early 2021 considering that the new season was approved from the start.
