The Ranch is a comedy-drama series produced by Netflix that premiered in 2016. The series has 8 parts, each consisting of 10 to 20 episodes, and was available on the streaming platform until 2020. The show features a talented cast of well-known actors including Ashton Kutcher, Elisha Cuthbert, Debra Winger, Sam Elliott, and Danny Masterson.

The ranch is set in Garrison, Colorado, and follows the lives of the Bennett family who owns and runs a local ranch. The patriarch of the family, Beau (Sam Elliott), is a tough, no-nonsense man who expects his sons to work hard and follow in his footsteps. The two sons, Rooster (Danny Masterson) and Colt (Ashton Kutcher), have been estranged for years, but are forced to work together when Colt returns home to run the family business.

The series begins with Colt's arrival at the ranch after a failed career as a semi-professional football player. Despite his struggles, Colt is determined to make a successful life on his family's ranch. However, things are not as easy as he had hoped. He finds himself constantly clashing with Beau and Rooster over the running of the ranch and their differing opinions on how things should be done.

As the series progresses, we see Colt scheming to make the ranch thrive and earn the respect of his family. He encounters many challenges and obstacles along the way, including a love triangle between himself, his ex-girlfriend Abby (Elisha Cuthbert), and her boyfriend, Kenny (portrayed by the late, great, actor, musician and environmental activist Tom Petty). Meanwhile, Rooster tries to find his place in the business and prove his worth to the family. Beau, dealing with age and its attendant issues, must face the harsh realities of running a ranch as the industry changes, and tackle his own personal struggles with his identity and relationships.

One of the most notable aspects of The Ranch is its unique blend of drama and comedy. The show manages to balance heavy themes, such as family relationships, generational tensions, and mortality, with moments of genuine humor and heartfelt emotion. The characters' interactions are witty, complex, and often raw, resulting in some of the most memorable scenes of the show.

Another impressive feature of The Ranch is its distinct setting, the heart of America's beef industry. The local community and the business practices of livestock farming are portrayed with a great sense of authenticity, providing viewers with insights into what goes into making a living off the land.

Overall, The Ranch is a smart and entertaining series that will appeal to a wide range of audiences. Its skilled cast, clever writing, and nuanced portrayal of everyday life on a ranch are sure to keep viewers engaged, laughing, and thinking throughout its eight seasons.

The Ranch (2016) is a series that is currently running and has 8 seasons (81 episodes). The series first aired on April 1, 2016.
