The Emmy-Award winning comedy-drama The Ranch, which debuted on Netflix in 2016, is the longest-running comedy on the streaming platform, with a total of 80 episodes.
Created by Two and a Half Men veterans Don Reo and Jim Patterson, the American comedy-drama follows Colt, a former high school football talent who returns to his family’s ranch in Colorado after his semi-pro football career after 15 years. Colt’s hometown return includes reconnecting with the high school flame he left behind and coming to terms with his failures, future, and dysfunctional family.
Since the show’s The Ranch Season 5 Part 8 finale premiered back on January 24, 2020, there have been rumors about a possible renewal. Fans have been curious about their beloved cast returning too, even signed an official petition for the show’s renewal.
Here’s everything we know about The Ranch Season 5 Part 9:
Will there be The Ranch Season 5 Part 9? Is The Ranch canceled?
With its Part 8, Netflix announced the show’s conclusion in 2020. In 2019, the show’s lead actor and executive producer, Ashton Kutcher, took to Twitter to announce that the series would be coming to an end with its episodes in 2020. “The Ranch is coming to an end, but not just yet,” the actor tweeted. “We’re excited to bring you the final 20 episodes — 10 streaming later this year (2019) on Netflix and then 10 more in 2020. Stay tuned!”

In addition to this, Kutcher spoke to Marc Maron on his podcast, WTF With Marc Maron about his decision to end The Ranch. “The story [of The Ranch] was told,” he said. “I love everything that we did. Everybody there was still highly in love with each other… We got to the point where we were able to let everybody know [that] this was the last season, and that we were going to wrap it up, so everybody had time to find their next gig.” he said.

When Will Ranch Season 5 Part 9 release?
Unfortunately, The Ranch hasn’t been officially renewed, and as of now, Netflix or Ashton Kutcher have no plans for a potential Part 9.
Will The Ranch Season 5 be a That ‘70s Show reunion?
One of the reasons for The Ranch’s popularity and success was the beloved cast members of the Netflix comedy. Netflix kind of brought back the original That ‘70s Show cast members in The Ranch. The Netflix comedy reunited That ‘70s Show alumni, Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson. The two played brothers on The Ranch till the end of Season 3, Part 1. However, Masterson had to say farewell to the series due to the several #MeeToo allegations that occurred in 2017, which led to his firing from the series. The allegations forced the writer to kill off Masterson’s character Rooster.

Ever since The Ranch ended, fans have been asking for a revival, a reboot of The Ranch. They are eager to see the return of the entire family of Iron River Ranch except maybe Rooster. The fans were also disappointed since there were no other cast members in The Ranch from their beloved sitcoms That ‘70s Show, such as Mila Kunis, Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Tanya Roberts, and Don Stark. Though there have been photos of Kutcher’s wife Mila Kunis, Laura Prepon, and Wilmer Valderrama on the set of The Ranch, there has been no official confirmation of a reboot for either That ’70s Show or The Ranch.
