The first of the last 20 episodes of The Ranch are now on Netflix which means part 8, which will be the final set of episodes of The Ranch, is scheduled to release on Netflix in January 2020. Here’s what we’re expecting from part 8 of The Ranch and when you’ll be watching the final season.
Just before we go further it’s important to outline the difference between a part and a season. Each season of The Ranch is split into two parts. Part 8 will be the final half of season 4.
It’s been a long journey for the show often filled with controversy particularly surrounding one of the show’s ex-cast members. Rooster, played by Danny Masterson was removed from the show given his now tainted record due to accusations outside of the show.
Let’s begin the facts:
- The Ranch part 8 has already been confirmed
- Part 8’s confirmed release date is 2020
- Filming of part 8 has already concluded.
What will happen in part 8 of The Ranch?
Warning: Spoilers ahead
As per the past few seasons, The Ranch concluded with a big cliffhanger.
Nick has returned to town who is an old-ex of Mary who in Beau’s own words “is bad news”. With Mary’s life in possible danger, several of the boys head to Nick’s trailer. The show cuts to an outside show (without knowledge of who just entered), we hear Nick say “the fuck are you doing here” before a gunshot lights up the screen and cut to credits.
We know that Colt, Beau, and Luke are all on the way to the trailer who are obvious suspects. As Decider points out, it could also see Rooster and Mary potentially be the killers too.
In an interview with TVLine over Christmas 2019, Molly McCook who plays Darlene weighed in on the cliffhanger and talks about what her character could be up to.
We also need to know whether Abby and Colt mend their relationship going into the final 10 episodes.
When will part 8 of The Ranch be on Netflix?
In December 2019, we got confirmation that part 8 of The Ranch would be arriving on Netflix on January 24th, 2020.

With the confirmation of the release date for part 8, Ashton Kutcher took to Twitter to say: “Get ready to take one last ride to The Ranch”.
As we previously discussed that’s much faster than what we were originally expecting.
The table below is the previous release dates for all parts of The Ranch:
|1||1||10||April 1, 2016|
|1||2||10||October 7, 2016|
|2||3||10||June 16, 2017|
|2||4||10||December 15, 2017|

|4||7||10||September 13th, 2019|
It had previously been announced by Ashton Kutcher that part 8 will be definitely coming out in 2020 so don’t expect a Christmas surprise.

Could Rooster return for part 8 of The Ranch?
Although Rooster is potentially a suspect in the shooting of Nick, it’s highly unlikely he’ll return.
Outside of the show, Danny Masterson continues to be under the spotlight with one of his accusers scheduled to appear in the docu-series on Scientology.
One possible indication he could at least cameo is the fact the star appeared at the wrap party for the season.
