    Although the first clips had fans speculating about the possibility of Danny Masterson returning to the series (he was fired in 2017 for sexual assault allegations), it appears Rooster is not one of the boys Sam Elliott is saying good morning to at the end of the Season 4 trailer. There will, however, be another cast member from That '70s Show making his return to the ranch. Look for Kurtwood Smith (Forman's dad "Red") to reprise his role as Old Man Peterson.

    SEASON PREMIERE: Netflix's first original comedy series may be heading off into the sunset, but there's still quite a bit more of The Ranch to come. The fourth and final season is rolling out in two 10-episode blocks, with the first dropping today, and the second arriving some time in 2020. Streaming on Netflix

    SERIES PREMIERE: Based on the bestselling book by Ethan Brown, Showtime's five-part true crime series Murder in the Bayou dives into the still unsolved case of the Jeff Davis 8, involving eight murdered women whose bodies were found in the outskirts of Jennings, Louisiana — part of Jefferson Davis parish — between 2005 and 2009. 9:00 PM ET on Showtime

    SEASON PREMIERE: Just three months after its initial debut, The Chef Show is back with Volume 2. The series features filmmaker Jon Favreau and chef Roi Choi — who taught Favreau to cook in preparation for the 2014 hit film Chef — demonstrating recipes and visiting restaurants, often in the company of celebrity guests. Few details have been released about the second installment, but judging by the preview, it's safe to say Seth Rogen will be spending some time in the kitchen. Streaming on Netflix

    SERIES PREMIERE: The premiere episode of CW's sports show Peaking features supercross star James Stewart returning from a 16-month ban to compete in the Red Bull Straight Rhythm event. 9:00 PM ET on The CW

    DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: In the Netflix documentary Hello, Privilege. It's Me, Chelsea, comedian Chelsea Handler travels the country exploring white privilege and the ways she's benefited from it. Watch the preview. Streaming on Netflix

    SEASON PREMIERE: From Jay and Mark Duplass, HBO's Room 104 returns for a third season of quirky hotel room character studies. 11:00 PM ET on HBO

    SEASON PREMIERE: It turns out Drake isn't just a fan, he's also an executive producer. After airing for two seasons in 2011 and 2013, the British crime series Top Boy ceased production -- that is, until rapper and fan Drake spearhead an all out series revival on Netflix, as well as a tie-in soundtrack album. Watch the preview. Streaming on Netflix

    SERIES PREMIERE: Based on true events, the Netflix series Unbelievable follows two female detectives (Played by Toni Collette and Merrit Weaver) as they investigate a series of seemingly related attacks that mirror allegations made by young woman named Marie (Kaitlyn Dever), who reported being raped, only to be accused of fabricating the incident. Watch the preview. Streaming on Netflix
