Today, Netflix has finally released Ozark Season 4, Part 1, the first batch of 7 episodes for the American crime drama's final season. Jason Bateman and Laura Linney are back as Marty and Wendy Byrde as they try to find a way to make a deal to get immunity between their dangerous cartel boss Omar Navarro (played by Felix Solis) and the FBI. The Byrde children are also getting involved in the family business, and Marty's relationship with the Byrde's former right-hand, Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) is getting worse.
Ozark Season 4 will have a total of 14 new episodes, but the final batch of 7 episodes won't be released until later this year. Based on what we've seen in the trailers, it looks like some key characters won't make it out alive as the show will feature the clash of the titans between the Byrdes, the Navarros, the Langmores, the Snells, and the Kansas City mob, as each party struggles with their turf and business.
"We always thought five [seasons] was the outside number,” Mundy said. “It just felt like after that – we didn’t want to repeat ourselves, we didn’t want the show to feel like it was continuing because it was a TV show and it had to continue. So really the decision has always been between is it four [seasons] or is it five [seasons], and then Netflix hit upon the idea of saying, ‘We’ll do four but we’ll make it long and split it in this way,’ and that felt perfect.”
Ozark Season 4 also stars Sofia Hublit, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan, Jessica Frances Dukes, Lisa Emery, Damian Young, and John Bedford Lloyd.
Ozark was executive produced by Bateman, Patrick Markey, Mark Williams, and Bill Dubuque, and John Shiban. Laura Linney is also co-executive producing the series. For more details about Ozark Season 4, check out everything we know about it here.
