“The Ranch” will end after four seasons on Netflix, series star Ashton Kutcher said on Tuesday.
Like all of the other seasons of “The Ranch,” the fourth season will be broken up into two parts, with 10 episodes airing in 2019, and the final 10 streaming in 2020.
“@theranchnetflix is coming to an end, but not just yet. We’re excited to bring you the final 20 episodes — 10 streaming later this year (2019) on @netflix, and then 10 more in 2020. Stay tuned!” Kutcher wrote on Twitter.
The series debuted in 2016 and initially reunited Kutcher with his “That 70s Show” co-star Danny Masterson. They starred as brothers on a Colorado ranch and centered on the family business.
After five women came forward with sexual misconduct accusations, including those of rape, Netflix fired Masterson at the end of 2017. 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 Netflix’s decision.
Dax Shepherd was brought on board replace him as the co-star, starring as former soldier Luke Matthews, who arrives in Garrison with some history with the Iron River Ranch. The series also starred Sam Elliott, Debra Winger and Elisha Cuthbert.
When “The Ranch” ends in 2020, it will have produced 80 episodes.
