Danny Masterson’s exit from Netflix’s “The Ranch” has finally been explained on camera.
The actor was fired by the streaming service in response to multiple sexual assault allegations. On Friday, the fate of his character Rooster was revealed in Part Six of “The Ranch”, the second half of season three.
In the Part 5 finale, Rooster made a run for it after Mary’s ex Nick threatened him at gunpoint. Ashton Kutcher’s Colt looks for his missing brother after he fails to show up for work in Part 6.
Later, a call comes in notifying the family about Rooster’s motorcycle found at the bottom of a cliff. No body is found, but the police pronounce him dead. Colt is so convinced his brother is alive that he refuses to attend Rooster’s funeral.
At the end of the episode, Colt receives a package from his brother containing a custom-made sign for the Bennett Brothers Ranch, a onesie for his niece, and a thank-you note for Colt, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Despite being kicked off the show, Masterson still supported “The Ranch” Part 6 premiere.

The Rooster may be MIA but @THERANCHNETFLIX is back and it’s incredible. Please support this great show we spent years putting together. The cast is beyond incredible. The writers were given the ultimate worse case scenario and instead of throwing in the towel they worked longer hours to create new heartbreaking and hysterical story lines. I’ve worked with most of the crew since the mid 90s on Cybil,70s,Men at Work and until last year The Ranch. They are my family. They work 10-14 hour shoot days to make you smile in 30 minute increments. Support them. Support comedy. Support art. Support the Iron River ranch and the Bennett family. Much love y’all. DM.
