American Horror Story, Glee, and Scream Queens creator Ryan Murphy and Glee and Scream Queens writer Ian Brennan have created a new series, and it’s the perfect combination of drama and horror.
Starring the timeless Sarah Paulson, Ratched tells the story of Nurse Mildred Ratched from the 1962 novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Set in a psychiatric hospital in Northern California, the series will follow the progression of Nurse Ratched going from nurse to murderous monster.
As with any Ryan Murphy show, you can expect a star-studded cast to breathe life into the show’s characters. In addition to Paulson who stars as Nurse Ratched, Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City), Judy Davis, Emmy Award recipient Sharon Stone, Brandon Flynn (13 Reason’s Why), Jon Jon Briones (American Horror Story), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story), Charlie Carver (Teen Wolf), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures), Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction), Corey Stoll (Midnight in Paris), Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda), and Vincent D’Onofrio (Men in Black) will all portray characters in the series.
Set your calendars, Ratched premieres on September 18, exclusively on Netflix.
