First Trailer For New Netflix Series Ratched Has Dropped

The first trailer for new Netflix drama series Ratched has dropped. You can watch it here:

The series, starring Sarah Paulson of American Horror Story fame, is a prequel to the 1975 classic One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and will be available to stream from 18 September.

It will be comprised of eight episodes and a second season has already been confirmed.

A synopsis of the show reads: "From Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, Ratched is a suspenseful drama series that tells the origin story of asylum nurse Mildred Ratched.

"In 1947, Mildred arrives in Northern California to seek employment at a leading psychiatric hospital where new and unsettling experiments have begun on the human mind.

"On a clandestine mission, Mildred presents herself as the perfect image of what a dedicated nurse should be, but the wheels are always turning and as she begins to infiltrate the mental health care system and those within it, Mildred's stylish exterior belies a growing darkness that has long been smouldering within, revealing that true monsters are made, not born."

"A pursuit of survival and of finding some sense of home. Even though the methods that she chooses to achieve that internal security are somewhat questionable, I would argue that she's doing them with a potentially selfish need, but a survival need nevertheless.

"Sort of an animal need that blinds her to the inappropriateness of some her actions."

Paulson also gave a hint as to what we can expect from Mildred - and it doesn't look like it will be a far cry from the characters she so expertly portrayed in American Horror Story.

She said: "A lot of us are on the planet trying to figure out how to survive our childhoods, our environments, our circumstances. And to have an opportunity to do a deeper dive into this invented character that has become so pulsating with life for so many people, to figure out why she is so cold...so removed...

"By the time you get to the end of the first season, you will not wonder how and why Mildred became the way she did. You may question her actions, you may have judgement about it, but you will understand it. It will make sense to you."
