Netflix has confirmed that Ozark, one of the most popular TV series on the streaming service in recent years, will return for a fourth and final season. Ozark season 4 will stretch across an extra long 14 episodes, split into two seven-episode halves that will debut separately, though we don't know when either half will arrive yet.
Season three brought plenty of tragic character deaths but was still well-received by audiences, scoring a very impressive 97% critic score and a 92% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
A part of me is so bummed the show is coming to an end but the other part of me is happy they're not going to just milk the show for all of its worth and keep it going when it's not creatively feasible to do so. Mundy will return as showrunner, writer and executive producer for Season 4 and work with Bateman as the creative forces behind both parts of the new season.
He added: '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'.
And it's not as if the show will be short on storylines either after a gripping third season with a particularly shocking finale, even by Ozark's standards. Laura Linney is set as a co-executive producer for season 4.
Since its debut in 2017, Ozark has earned 14 Emmy nominations. "We're so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and can't wait to see how the Byrdes' journey comes to a close". At the 2019 Emmys, Ozark picked up two major trophies: Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series for Bateman and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Julia Garner. Things go wrong, and they end up trying to rebuild their lives and pay off their debts in a Missouri tourist town.
