Netflix Renews 'The Ranch' for Season 2
Netflix is booking a return trip to The Ranch.
The streaming service has renewed the multicamera comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson for a second season, it was announced Friday.
The series, which premiered in April, centers on a failed semipro-football player (Kutcher) who returns home to Colorado to help run the family ranching business with his dad and his brother (Masterson). Sam Elliott and Debra Winger also star, alongside a supporting cast that includes Happy Endings alum Elisha Cuthbert and Reaper grad Bret Harrison.
The Ranch marks a reunion for Kutcher and Masterson, who famously starred on That '70s Show together for eight seasons. It also marks a reunion for Kutcher and Two and a Half Men executive producers Don Reo and Jim Patterson, who serve as showrunners on The Ranch. The two executive produce The Ranch with Kutcher, Jane Wiseman, Blair Fetter and Andy Weil. Masterson serves as a producer.
The Ranch joins a growing number of original comedies on the streaming service, including Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Grace and Frankie, Master of None, Fuller House, Flaked, Love and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which Netflix just renewed for a new batch of episodes set 10 years after the events of the 2001 film.
