Netflix has renewed “The Ranch” for a fourth season, which will again consist of 20 episodes.
The multi-camera comedy debuted the first half of its third season in June, which featured the departure of series co-star Danny Masterson.
Netflix fired Masterson from “The Ranch” in December after five women accused him of sexual misconduct, including rape. Some of the accusations dated back to the early 2000s. Masterson has denied the accusations, and said in a statement shortly after his firing that he was “very disappointed” in the decision.
Dax Shepard was cast as a recurring guest star for Season 3 after Netflix fired Masterson. Shepard will play former soldier Luke Matthews, who arrives in Garrison with some history with the Iron River Ranch. He forms a quick bond with Colt (Ashton Kutcher) and Beau (Sam Elliott), but his past has a way of catching up to him.
The show centers around Colt (Ashton Kutcher), who returns to his family’s Colorado ranch after his semi-pro football career fizzles out. Sam Elliott, Debra Winger and Elisha Cuthbert also star.
