We are excited to announce that Netflix has ordered 10 episodes for Ransom Canyon; the first two will be directed by Amanda Marsalis (Ozark, Umbrella Academy). April Blair will be fronting the show as creator, writer, and executive producer. Dan Angel also executive produces.

The new series stars Josh Duhamel & Minka Kelly.

Per Netflix:

“Josh Duhamel (The Lost HusbandTransformers, Love, Simon) will play Staten Kirkland, owner and sole occupant of the sprawling Double K Ranch. Steadfast and stoic, Staten leads the charge to resist outside forces threatening his way of life and the land that he loves.

Minka Kelly (EuphoriaFriday Night Lights) Quinn has often found herself in the shadow of others, but after a stint in New York pursuing her career as a concert pianist,  she has returned to Ransom Canyon to carve out a new path for herself.”

There are 10 books in the Ransom Canyon book series by New York Times Bestseller Jodi Thomas, with Season 1 of Netflix’s TV adaptation loosely based on the first one, the 2015 Ransom Canyon.

Netflix’s head of drama, Jinny Howe, said in an interview, “It’s a multi-generational family show set on a ranch, and we say it’s Virgin River meets Yellowstone. We think that it’s going to deliver on all the romance and again it will be a really beautiful vista and setting, very escapist. It is in development in the early stages, but we’re very excited about it; it feels very promising.”

Netflix has optioned the entire library of the Ransom Canyon book series, which was released between 2015 and 2019 and includes:

    • Ransom Canyon

    • Winter’s Camp

    • Rustler’s Moon
