Ozark renewed for fourth and final season
This last outing will be split into two seven episode parts.
Acclaimed crime-drama Ozark will return for a fourth and final season, Netflix has confirmed.
It will consist of 14 episodes instead of the usual 10 and be released in two halves, with the first likely to arrive in late 2021.
The streaming giant hadn’t given any clues as to the show’s fate until now leaving many fans fearful it would be cancelled.
The show follows accountant Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) as they relocate their family to the Ozarks in order to launder money for a Mexican cartel.
They quickly become entangled with the local criminals including unpredictable heroin dealer Darlene (Lisa Emery) and The Langmore family led by Ruth (Julia Garner).
Chris Mundy will once again serve as showrunner and writer with Bateman also expected to take on more directing duties after winning an Emmy for his work last year.
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving ‘Ozark’ more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” said Mundy.
“It’s been such a great adventure for all of us — both on screen and off — so we’re thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible.”
You can stream all three seasons of Ozark on Netflix now.
