Netflix's The Ranch Season 4 Trailer Has Another That '70s Show Reunion (But No Rooster)

Ashton Kutcher as Colt Bennett The Ranch Season 4 Netflix

The end is nigh for The Ranch. Netflix renewed the sitcom for a final Season 4, and it's being broken up into two parts. Part 7, as Netflix calls it, will be 10 episodes premiering Friday, September 13, 2019, with Part 8 to end the comedy in 2020.

The official trailer was just released, showing another That '70s Show reunion for The Ranch, albeit one without Danny Masterson as Rooster after the actor was fired during filming for Season 3. Instead, Ashton Kutcher is being reunited with Kurtwood Smith (aka Eric's dad Red Forman), who returns as Old Man Peterson, a character he played a handful of times in The Ranch Season 2 in 2017 and the Season 3 premiere in 2018.

Check out the Season 4 first half, aka Part 7, trailer:

That '70s Show alum and current NCIS star Wilmer Valderrama previously made a guest appearance on The Ranch. Laura Prepon told E! they kept asking her to be on the show too. Meanwhile, some other That '70s Show stars are reuniting for another comedy on ABC.

Ashton Kutcher stars in The Ranch as Colt Bennett, and Danny Masterson used to co-star as Jameson "Rooster" Bennett. Rooster is name-dropped in the new trailer, but not shown. The Ranch wrote out Rooster in Part 6, which was released in December 2018.

After Rooster left town in Part 5, word came that his motorcycle was found at the bottom of a cliff. Apparently he went into a curve too fast, his brakes locked up, and he went over the guardrail. The motorcycle was retrieved from the river, but not his body, but Rooster is presumed dead. There was a touching memorial service and Rooster was honored with a toast at Maggie's bar.

The Ranch Season 4/Part 7 will follow Colt's separation from Abby (Elisha Cuthbert) and his not-so-smooth relationship with father Beau (Sam Elliott). This season, Beau will struggle to adjust to semi-retirement, still wanting to work and keep busy. Also, Cousin Luke (Dax Shepard) elopes with Rooster’s ex-girlfriend Mary, taking the money he was going to use to help the Bennett Brothers Ranch. But apparently he returns seeking forgiveness from the family.

I was surprised to learn from TVLine that, by the time The Ranch ends after Part 8 in 2020, it will become Netflix's longest-running multi-camera sitcom to date. Its 80 episodes will put it past the Full House spinoff, Fuller House, which is also ending its run. Amazing.

Will you be watching The Ranch as it winds down on Netflix, or are you too upset that Rooster is no longer on the show? The Ranch Part 7's 10 episodes stream September 13. Here's more on what's ahead for Netflix.

Gina Carbone

Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
