'The Ranch' Renewed by Netflix for Fourth Season
Netflix has renewed The Ranch for another season.
The multicamera effort starring Ashton Kutcher will return for a 20-episode fourth season on the streaming service.
Castmembers Kutcher, Sam Elliott and Elisha Cuthbert are expected to be back. Joining them is Dax Shepard, who was a recurring guest star for part of last season.
Shepard helped fill the void left by co-star Danny Masterson, who was fired in December amid rape allegations. Masterson appeared in the second half of The Ranch's second season, which was filmed before he was axed. Netflix has yet to set a premiere date for the second half of the third season.
The Ranch centers on a failed semi-pro football player (Kutcher) who returns home to Colorado to help run the family ranching business with his dad (Elliott). Two and a Half Men alums Don Reo and Jim Patterson serve as showrunners alongside Kutcher.
