Will Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch return for season 4?

The Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch team has pulled out all the stops to ensure that the show gets renewed for another season.

The Ollingers and their team of experts have certainly found many unexplained and mysterious things over the course of their many adventures and excavations at Blind Frog Ranch.

But since Chad, Duane and the team have now confirmed that season three concluded one episode short of the nine episodes which were originally planned – it seems like the location of the buried Aztec treasure is no longer the biggest question that fans of the show want answered.

Will Mystery of Blind Frog Ranch be renewed?

Speculating about television renewals is always tricky, and since Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch has reportedly already slipped through the cracks at the newly-merged Warner Bros. Discovery in 2024, there is some cause for concern that the series may not be renewed for another season.

And while no official announcements have been made just yet, it seems like the Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch team is doing all that they can to ensure that the network brings the show back for season four.

In fact, a recent post on the Blind Frog Ranch Outpost & Tours Facebook page (which already has over 100 comments) even urged fans to “tell Discovery how you feel about ‘Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch’”.

A look back at Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch so far

The very first episode of Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch premiered back in 2021. And while Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch is still relatively green in the world of Discovery’s various treasure-hunting-themed shows, it has now aired a total of three seasons, with over 22 total episodes, as follows:

Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch season Number of episodes Initial air dates
Season 1 6 January 1, 2021, to February 5, 2021
Season 2 8 January 7, 2022, to March 4, 2022
Season 3 8 November 15, 2023, to January 3, 2024

This brief summary of Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch’s history also provides some context as to what the future of the show might look like.

For instance, if Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch does end up returning for a fourth season, the show will likely keep to its fall release schedule, and fans might expect to see new episodes released as soon as November 2024.

The Blind Frog Ranch ratings

Although networks like Discovery rely on many different factors to determine whether series like Mystery at Blind frog Ranch should be renewed for a new season, a show’s ratings and viewership numbers are usually one of the most important factors to consider.

Fortunately for Blind Frog Ranch, it seems like the show has been maintaining a fairly substantial viewership, even throughout its third season.

In 2021, when Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch was airing its first season, the show brought in just under a million viewers on average.

However by 2022, Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch’s viewership had surpassed 1 million viewers per episode. And on the more recent 2024 Nielsen’s Top 20 list, the show ranked among the 11 most popular reality series for the first week of January.

The Ollingers are confident that Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch will be renewed

One of the other big factors that networks take into consideration when they are deciding whether to renew a show or not is the availability of the show’s cast.

But while there would really be no Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch without Duane Ollinger and his son, Chad, it does not seem like the team has any desire to stop their treasure-hunting adventure anytime soon.

Duane even stated in a recent interview with AllYourScreens.com that they have “so many people” who depend on them and who want them to move forward, that he no longer feels like he could just decide to throw in the towel.

It also seems like both Chad and Duane are still convinced that there is “more” treasure to be found somewhere on their property.

What to expect if Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch gets renewed

The most frustrating thing about the apparent mix-up with the Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch season three finale is the fact that episode eight ended on a massive cliffhanger with the team finally having found a dry entrance into the property’s vast cave system.

If Discovery ends up giving Mystery at Blind Frog Ranch season four the green light, it seems natural that fans can expect to see the team venturing further into these caves in search of the rumored Aztec treasure.

Fans can also expect to see Duane rocking a brand-new, short-haired look in future seasons.
