Ryan Murphy's 'Ratched' gets 2-season order by Netflix

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the streaming giant has scored Ratched, a One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest prequel series, in a two-season, 18-episode order. The Netflix series will begin in 1947 and chronicle Ratched's evolution into a full-fledged nightmare nurse.

Announced this afternoon, the streaming service has officially put in a 2-season, 18-episode order for the Murphy executive-produced series "Ratched".

The idea behind the series comes from newcomer Evan Romansky, who penned a script on spec straight out of film school. Fox 21 Television will produce. Paulson has been nominated for five Emmys for her work with Murphy, winning one past year for "Crime Story". She will also appear as New Orleans physician Dr. Anna Pou in Murphy's upcoming Hurricane Katrina season of Murphy's American Crime Story.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey was initially published in 1962 about a criminal who uses the insanity plea to avoid jail but ends up in maybe an even worse situation. Actress Louise Fletcher won an Academy Award for her performance as one of the most notable pop culture villains; this time around, viewers will get a deeper look into how she became the horrifying passive-aggressive nurse.

Douglas and Paul Zaentz's late uncle, Saul Zaentz, produced the classic 1976 One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest movie, winning together a Best Picture Oscar in 1976. It starred Jack Nicholson as Randle McMurphy, and featured Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, and Scatman Crothers. E! News reports the premise will follow a New Orleans hospital five days after a natural disaster and the decisions made by hospital staff that led them to euthanize critically ill patients.
