Masterson and his former That '70s Show co-star and longtine friend Kutcher teamed up for The Ranch and the comedy was sold with the duo attached to star, playing brothers, and exec produce.

Danny Masterson has been written out of his Netflix show The Ranch, the streaming giant revealed.

"I am obviously very disappointed in Netflix's decision to write my character off of The Ranch", Masterson told TMZ. "[Monday] was his last day on the show, and production will resume in early 2018 without him", Netflix said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
