Ratched was clearly very popular during its month of streaming on Netflix. It’s even been confirmed to have broken a record for the platform.

The ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest‘ prequel series became Netflix’s most viewed debut season for 2020. Within it’s first 28 days of dropping, it amassed a huge 48 million individual user streams. Unsurprisingly, the show is confirmed for a second season which was revealed back in 2017.

However the series falls shy of the most viewed debut series of all time, this is currently held by ‘The Witcher’ in 2019 which was watched by a huge 76 million households.

The show received high praise for the acting and amazing outfits worn by Sarah Paulson and the rest of the cast. Like many shows however, Netflix has not confirmed when the second season of Ratched will be released due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
