The Ranch will be returning to Netflix in January for a fourth and final season. The streaming giant has confirmed that the final 10 episodes of the show, billed as Part 8, will begin streaming on the platform from January 24.
Created by Don Reo and Jim Patterson, The Ranch was the first comedy series produced by Netflix as well as the first to introduce 20-episode seasons for multi-camera series split into two half-seasons, Deadline reports.

The show takes place in present-day on a Colorado ranch outside Denver, and chronicles Colt Barrett’s (Ashton Kutcher) as he is forced to return home after a failed semi-pro football career to run the family ranching business with his father (Sam Elliott) and mother (Debra Winger).
So, what can we expect from part 8?
Well, with Christmas fast approaching and the ranch now in the hands of Lisa Neumann, it looks like they’ll be more trouble on the horizon – meaning the Bennetts must stick together as they look at facing a rather uncertain future.
Fans have been reacting to the new online and many of them seem devasted to see the show come to an end.
“Not emotionally prepared,” wrote one user.
“UGH! I am excited and sad to see it end. Such a great show. Love so many of the actors. Thank you!” added another.

The show has been going strong despite the controversy that has been going on behind the scenes.
Danny Masterson originally co-starred in the series as Kutcher’s brother Rooster, but he was written off the show at the end of Season 3 amid the rape allegations made by four women against Masterson in the 2000s.
According to Deadline, his exit from the show was dealt with in the first episode of the second half of last year’s season in December.
