When To Expect The Ranch Season 3 Premiere? Is Season 4 Under Risk?

The Ranch

Netflix's sitcom The Ranch is coming back for a third season in 2018. However, the premiere could take place later, since one of the show's protagonists, Danny Masterson, leaves the series due to multiple sexual assault allegations. Netflix, however, opted not to cancel these episodes that had already been filmed before the accusation. As a result, we would likely see Danny at least in the first half of Season 3 (the first ten episodes).

We hope that this sad incident won't affect the show's popularity. The news has first appeared in the Huffington Post. Later, Netflix announced that they would "make new episodes in 2018 without him." We don't want to dig deeper into this scandal. Let's focus our attention on The Ranch instead. Nonetheless, we don't rule out that this process could affect the future of the web series. Therefore, the future of the show after its third installment is questionable.

It's worth noting that the sitcom was a success in its second season. Also worth noting that Netflix has decided to release each season split into two parts. So, please don't mislead yourself, there were four parts of The Ranch at Netflix until now, not four seasons. The upcoming installment of the sitcom is its third season, not the fifth one. As for the response from critics and viewers, the 2nd chapter of The Ranch has received the universal acclaim.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the recent season of the comedy series holds a score of 6.0/10 and an 80% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the sophomore installment of the show at 4.5/5/91%. On IMDb, the show's score seems pretty high as well, 7.7/10 > 20,000 votes. As a result, the decision by Netflix to pick up The Ranch for another round looks logical.

Summing up, in spite all of this, The Ranch is one of the most popular web series on Netflix, ranked #5 among all the shows. The second installment of the sitcom was even more successful in comparison with its predecessor. Both critics and viewers were fully satisfied. Sadly, the scandal described above might affect the future of the web series. We hope that the fans won't allow such scenario to put into practice.

What's The Ranch About?

If you have not yet watched this web series on Netflix, we suggest you read a brief overview of The Ranch below. Otherwise, you may scroll down to get acquainted with our opinion on the subject of the possible release date for Season 3.

The story focuses on Colt Bennett, a semi-pro football star who comes back to his hometown after a fifteen-year unsuccessful career. Now Colt is about to restore their family ranch business with his brother, Rooster, and his father, Beau. Additionally, Colt can't settle the love triangle between his present girlfriend and his high school sweetheart, Abby. Colt likes to drink and avoids common sense. Besides, his father and brother frequently mock upon him because of his incompetence in the ranching skills and faults in his past career.

On The Likely Release Date For Season 3

It's official that The Ranch would return for Season 3 in 2018, according to Netflix. However, the global broadcaster has yet to announce the exact release date. It would be logical to suppose that the premiere could take place in April (like Season 1). However, more likely is that The Ranch Season 2 will premiere this summer, in June 2018, given the current schedule of the show. On the other hand, we don't rule out the fall premiere because of the circumstances described above. Anyway, this is nothing other than our forecast on the subject. We are looking forward to the reliable news from Netflix. So, we will update this article when the streaming giant gives us more official data. For now, stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed.
