"It's back. There are 20 new ones being shot. I may or may not be in them,"
Shortly after the trailer aired, an unbothered Winger shared a picture on Instagram, enjoying a book with the caption:
“So happy to be celebrating #squarebooks40 rip #ronzo @squarebooks”
Sitting on a chair, while holding up “On Fire,” a book by Larry Brown, Winger appears to be celebrating anything but the upcoming season of “The Ranch.”
Her departure from the show has not been officially announced but a tweet from “The Ranch” suggests that the show has taken another direction:
“Times are changing, but the Bennetts always have each others’ backs. The Ranch Part 7 premieres September 13, only on @Netflix.”
The season, which premiers on September 13 will be the show final season, commenting on the news Dax Shepherd writes:
“I've had SO much fun working daily with @elishaphaneuf, Sam and Ashton @aplusk on The Ranch. The show is sadly coming to an end, but happily, not before the final 20 episodes — 10 streaming later this year (2019) on Netflix, and then 10 more in 2020. A lifetime highlight was hugging Sam Elliott every morning when I got to work. That's far more luck than I ever planned on having.”
According to TVLine, the final season ends in 2020 and will air 80 episodes, making it the longest-running multi-camera sitcom for Netflix.
