It has been reported that production for Ozark season 4 will start up this November. Ozark debuted on Netflix in 2017, where it was met with a very warm reception from audiences and critics alike, drawing considerable comparisons to another beloved series, Breaking Bad. The series has grown to be one of the streaming platform’s biggest hits, especially after releasing season 3 earlier this year, which was met with glowing reviews. Not too long after season 3 premiered on the platform, Netflix announced that Ozark was renewed for season 4, which would be its final season and would be split into two parts consisting of 14 episodes total.
In an interview with IndieWire, series star Jason Bateman revealed that production for Ozark season 4 will begin this November. After revealing the official start date would be November 9th, he stated, ”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.”
After Netflix announced the show would be coming back for a fourth and final season, fans have been wondering what to expect from Ozark season 4. Ozark season 3, which featured a cartel war and a heavy divide between Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and his wife Wendy (Laura Linney), culminated in a cliffhanger ending that left fans in shock. However, one theory for season 4 suggests Darlene Snell’s mother could potentially be a villain in the final season.
Ozark follows a financial advisor named Marty Byrde, who moves his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks in order to launder money for a drug cartel. The drama series stars Bateman, Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skyler Gaertner, Julia Garner, Lisa Emery, Charlie Tahan, Kevin L. Johnson, Janet McTeer, and Felix Solis. All three seasons of Ozark are currently streaming on Netflix.
