Netflix ISN’T cancelling “The Ranch.” Deep breaths: take them. I know it’s the least important part of this story. Just let me have my enjoyment one of the best shows on TV isn’t being taken away from
But Danny Masterson? Fired from Netflix. No word on if long lost cousins Coy and Vance Bennett are going to become series regulars. Played by Topher Grace and Jon Cryer.
There were a lot of TV references in the last sentence. I’d understand if you have to come back to it. It’s like Easter Eggs but a lot less fun. Sorry.
“As a result of ongoing discussions, Netflix and the producers have written Danny Masterson out of ‘The Ranch,’” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement Tuesday. “Yesterday was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him.”
Maybe he gets his had caved in by a heifer. Raped by a steer. These are just ideas.
Part four of “The Ranch” is set to premiere on Netflix as scheduled Dec. 15, with additional episodes slated to premiere some time in 2018. Netflix has traditionally divided the series into 10-episode batches, each of which is part of a longer season. It is unknown how many episodes from will debut this month and how many will be held until next year. Masterson is not expected to appear in any episodes released after Dec. 15. Also unresolved is the fate of Masterson’s executive producer credit on the series.
The allegations against Masterson have been around for years (see Danny Masterson’s Publicist Gives Worst Excuse for His (Alleged) Rapey Ways… and ‘That 70s Show’ Actor Danny Masterson Allegedly Raped FOUR Women. They Were Silenced…). What finally pushed Netflix over the edge? Perhaps it was a Netflix executive telling a woman Netflix didn’t believe Masterson’s accusers. Turns out,the woman accusing Masterson worked for Netflix. So…
Not even the Fruity Club Church of Scientology can recover from this kind of interdimensional blunder. Xenu be damned! Best not to try your wicked ways on a studio executive. Or studio anyone. Or anyone.
So to recap the day’s news: Danny Masterson? Fired. “The Ranch”? Still on the air. Proof Xenu is crap, but Jesus is real. Let that sink in.
Let’s use the news about Netlfix to talk Net Neutrality…
