Ozark is returning to Netflix for season 4, with a supersized and, sadly, final season. We’ve already got a bunch of information surrounding the fourth season, including new cast members and what we can expect. Here’s the latest on what we know so far about season 4 of Netflix’s Ozark.
Often ranked among the best shows on Netflix, Ozark is a Netflix Original crime drama series created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams.
The popularity of Ozark has skyrocketed, becoming one of the biggest and best Originals on Netflix to date. In April 2020, we heard that the series ranks among the most-watched titles of all time. Just under 30 million people watched the third season.
Even though it’s been compared to Breaking Bad since its debut on Netflix in the summer of 2017, it’s still one of the best shows on the streaming service. It has racked up 32 Emmy nominations, making it a major awards contender. In March of 2020, the most recent season of Stranger Things premiered on Netflix.
Ozark: Season 4 – Is there a trailer yet?
Netflix confirmed Ozark’s return for a fourth and final season in June of 2020.
This season will be Ozark’s final one, but Netflix social media platforms confirmed that it would be split into two halves. Season 4 will have a total of fourteen episodes, with each half consisting of seven episodes.
What is Ozark Season 4 Release Date
It’s possible that Ozark may return sooner than previously thought based on the release dates of previous seasons, which have averaged about 19 months between seasons.
Between November 2020 and October 2021, the entire fourth season was shot in blocks spanning eleven months. We strongly suspect that the final batch of episodes is currently being edited, and it won’t be long before all of them have been finished.
In a trailer posted to YouTube, Netflix announced that Ozark’s final season would be available on the streaming service on Friday, April 29th, 2022.
What Is The Ozark Season 4 Plot?
Season three of Ozark was explosive, leaving us with a lot to think about for season four.
Ruth’s betrayal of the Byrdes was finally shattered after Ben’s untimely death. The Snell poppy farm is where Ruth, like her cousin Wyatt, has chosen to distance herself from the family. Darlene has offered Ruth a job running the day-to-day production to ensure that the heroin manufactured on-site is delivered to the Kansas City mob.
Aside from herself, the Byrdes also need to know that Ruth is not a person to be trifled with. Darlene admires the Langmore matriarch’s intelligence and ruthlessness.
This season, “Ruth” wants “that independence back” that she had before the Byrdes arrived, according to Julia Garner.
Frank Jr.’s actions are unlikely to have any repercussions because Darlene and Frank Sr. worked out a multimillion-dollar deal for the KC mob with Frank Sr.
Despite their animosity toward one another, the KC mob and the Byrde’s operation in Lake Ozark will be even more explosive next season now that Darlene has joined forces with the cartel.
What is the Cast of Ozark Season 4
The Cast from the previous seasons who are confirmed to return for the fourth season of Ozark as well:
- Jason Bateman as Marty Byrde
- Laura Linney as Wendy Byrde
- Skylar Gaertner as Jonah Byrde
- Lisa Emery as Darlene Snell
- Charlie Tahan as Wyatt Langmore
- Sofia Hublitz as Charlotte Byrde
- Felix Solis as Omar Navarro
- Julia Garner as Ruth Langmore
- Jessica Frances Dukes as Special Agent Maya Miller
- Carson Holmes as Three Langmore
In light of Ben Davis’s character’s death, it’s not clear if Tom Pelphrey will return to the role of Ben Davis. It’s more than likely that the actor will return in a flashback.
Deadline broke the news of all the other new cast members for the show’s final season in November 2020. The following actors have joined the cast:
- Alfonso Herrera as Javi Elizonndro
- Adam Rothenberg as Mel Sattem
