Even in 2020, the existence of a Nurse Ratched origin story from Ryan Murphy evokes a bit of disbelief. This might simply be self-parody, and whereas the primary pictures from Ratched undoubtedly learn like a Ryan Murphy Joint (Finn Wittrock, everybody!), there’s still something type of mystifying about this entire thing (Sharon Stone is right here, and she is extraordinarily informal in regards to the actual monkey—in a costume and pearls—on her back). Netflix launched several pictures from Murphy’s upcoming sequence, which debuts on September 18 and imagines the origin story of the eponymous nurse (performed by Sarah Paulson, after all) and iconic villain from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Casting apart, you’ll be able to clearly say it is a Murphy mission-based mostly on the cinematography and costuming alone.
Featured within the images are Sarah Paulson as Nurse Mildred Ratched, Cynthia Nixon as Gwendolyn Briggs, Judy Davis as Nurse Betsy Bucket (HAHA WHAT), Finn Wittrock as Edmund Tolleson, Sophie Okonedo as Charlotte, Liz Femi, Charlie Carver, and Jon Jon Briones as Dr Hanover. But wait, there’s a lot extra: The sequence additionally stars Corey Stoll, Rosanna Arquette, Vincent D’Onofrio, Alice Englert, Amanda Plummer, and Hunter Parrish.
The pictures provide you with a reasonably good thought of what Murphy’s thrown in his wacky narrative blender this time around, throwing in a somewhat little bit of Mildred Pierce, The Knick, and maybe even his personal American Horror Story: Asylum for good measure. You may verify these out beneath the official plot synopsis:
