It looks like Netflix's The Ranch has officially been put out to pasture. The streaming service has reportedly canceled the fan-favorite comedy show after three full seasons, as an Instagram post from series star Elisha Cuthbert revealed on Tuesday. The show has reportedly already filmed 20 new episodes, which will debut in two 10-episodes batches over the course of 2019 and 2020.

One of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career has come to a close. over the last 4 years we have completed filming all 80 live shows BUT ITS FAR FROM DONE FOR YOU! We’re excited to bring you the final 20 episodes — 10 streaming later this year (2019) on #Netflix, and then 10 more in 2020. I’m so grateful for all my time spent with these incredible actors and crew and I’m so thankful for all the awesome fans of the show! We hope y’all get a kick out of the last 20! #theranchnetflix
Series star Ashton Kutcher also addressed the cancellation on Twitter, saying that the cast and crew are "excited to bring" what the series still has in store.

The Ranch follows the son of a Colorado rancher, who returns home from his semi-pro football career to run his family business. The series initially debuted on the streaming service in 2016, and boasts a cast that also includes Sam Elliot, Debra Winger, and Dax Shepard. Danny Masterson initially starred in the series as Rooster, but was fired due to sexual harassment allegations. His character was subsequently killed off of the show in the second half of Season Three.6comments
This news comes just several months after the show was renewed for a fourth season. It is unclear exactly when these last twenty episodes will debut, although both Cuthbert and Kutcher say that they will begin airing "later this year."
