‘The Ranch’ Replacing Danny Masterson With Dax Shepard After Rape Allegations

We all know about the fucked up stories involving Danny Masterson. He was eventually fired from the popular Netflix show, The Ranch, amid multiple rape allegations. If you’re watching the current season, you know how it ends, and what “Rooster’s” fate is.

Now, we have a replacement.

According to Decider, funny man Dax Shepard will replace Masterson.

Shepard will recur in the second half of the Netflix comedy’s 20-episode third season as Luke Matthews, a former soldier who becomes very friendly with Ashton Kutcher and Sam Elliott’s characters.

Given that Shepard is merely recurring — he’ll reportedly appear in five episodes — he won’t completely fill the void left by Masterson.
