The final trailer for the much-anticipated new Netflix/Ryan Murphy collaboration Ratched has landed, giving us a major case of the heebie-jeebies.
Ratched reimagines the story and origin of Nurse Mildred Ratched, the iconic, icy villain of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The new show casts the ever-awesome Sarah Paulson in the lead, tracing Ratched’s origins back to the post-war 1940s. Mildred Ratched arrives at a New England asylum run by the enigmatic Dr. Hannover (Jon Jon Briones, of American Crime Story: Versace). There, Mildred discovers the brutality of his practices, subjecting the asylum residents to various forms of torture in order to “cure” their ailments. For anyone keeping track, that includes a group of patients committed to “cure” their homosexuality.
American Horror Story fans should rejoice, as Ratched finds Paulson and Murphy returning to their ever-creepy Asylum roots.
Ratched comes to Netflix September 18.
