Netflix’s renowned crime thriller drama will return to screens for a fourth season, it said. On June 30, Netflix officially declared that they will wind up the series with the fourth instalment. Talking about the renewal, showrunner Chris Mondy said, “We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes Saga right. 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.”
Ozark Season 4 Release Date
The fourth season will have a different narrative version. According to the latest reports, Season 4 of Ozark with 14 episodes will be split into two parts, each having seven episodes. It is not exactly clear why the showrunners have put forth such a plan. However, we assume that they are planning for a “real” finale in the latter half. So the entire season will have some really good effectiveness.
When will Season 4 begin its filming?
Jason Bateman, who plays the lead role of Marty Byrde in Ozark said that the production process of Ozark Season 4 will begin later this year. “Everything is moving well toward that, and we’re very confident in the guidelines and protocols we’re going to be following. We’ve got tons of consultants, and we’re learning a lot from other productions.”
This does not mean that Season 4 will hit the screen any soon. Viewers need to only expect the release in the fall of 2021. “I think the fastest we can turn around a full season, from starting the writer’s room to having Netflix push it out, is basically 12 months,” Bateman added.
What can viewers expect in Season 4 Ozark?
During these unpredictable times, it is unfair to expect the extended season any near. In the last season, the show watchers saw Ruth Langmore turning in opposition to Byrdes. Hence, the following season will see much of her darker side and emerge as one power of her own. Mundy said that Season 4 will rely more on Ruth. It “will be about whether or Ruth ( Garner) really can create something other than what she wants and is sustainable, or if she wants something else.”
“And I think it will be about if the Byrdes can turn the biggest mistake of their lives into this huge advantage, and how much will karma catch up with them if they do.”
Fans also hope that some of the loose ends will make sense. Viewers are eagerly waiting for how things would end with Marty and Wendy- will they end up dead? Wendy’s decision to let her brother die also needs questioning. Some fans also think that Sam will not have many roles to play in this season.
Ozark Season 4
Since there has been no trailer release, we are not sure of any appearance of new faces in the show. But definitely, it will have cast from previous seasons.
- Jason Bateman as Martin “Marty” Byrde
- Laura Linney as Wendy Byrde
- Sofia as Charlotte Byrde
- Skylar Gaertner as Jonah Byrde
- Julia Garner as Ruth Langmore
- Charlie Than as Wyatt Langmor

The return of certain characters such as Maya Miller ( Jessica Dukes), Frank Cosgrove Sr ( John Lloyd) and Sam Dermody( Kevin L Johnson) is still uncertain. Ozark will not have a longer life, but Season 4 will be one worth waiting for.
