Are we getting a That 70’s Show reunion? Sort of! Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson are heading to a brand new series on Netflix.
According to Deadline, the Netflix series starring the two 70’s Show co-stars is called The Ranch. Kutcher will play a retired former semi-pro football player who comes back to his Colorado home. Having a short career as a semi-pro football player, he returns home to work with his brother (played by Danny Masterson), who manages the family business.
The Netflix series is set for a 20 episode order instead of the standard 13 that Netflix is used to giving their original series. Perhaps the That 70’s Show co-stars are really putting some confidence in how well Netflix thinks The Ranch will perform.
As it stands, the comedy will be a half hour, much like Netflix’s hit show, Grace and Frankie, and will be split into 10 episodes per year. The show, featuring Kutcher and Masterson, is set to premiere in 2016.
Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson aren’t the only ones from That 70’s Show that have found a home on Netflix. Laura Prepon, who played Donna on the show, stars in the very successful Netflix hour dramedy Orange Is the New Black.
In addition to new additions like Fuller House and The Ranch, other already established original Netflix series include the Daredevil series, Grace and Frankie, Bojack, Orange Is the New Black, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Arrested Development, Sense8, Marco Polo, House of Cards, Hemlock Grove, and Bloodline.
Kutcher recently just ended his run on the series Two and A Half Men, while Masterson has bounced around on series such as Men at Work, and had made guest appearances on Raising Hope, White Collar, Supah Ninjas, Royal Pains, and Haven.
So far, the fans seem very excited about Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson’s reunion on Netflix.
So Kelso and Hyde are doing a Netflix Series together. Should be good I hope

This isn’t the only time Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson have teamed up. After they said goodbye to That 70’s Show, the two have kept in touch. In fact, partners Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis both keep in touch with their 70’s Show co-stars.
