Netflix renews Ozark for fourth and final season
Staff Reporter | On 30, Jun 2020
Netflix has renewed Ozark for a fourth and final season.
The crime drama, directed and produced by Jason Bateman, revolves around financial planner Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) and their family’s sudden relocation from the suburbs of Chicago to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks. Rather than the familiar skyscrapers and trading floors, Netflix’s drama explores capitalism, family dynamics, and survival, through the eyes of (anything but) ordinary Americans.
Season 3 saw Marty and Wendy struggle to deal with the tensions mounting around their new casino, The Missouri Belle. Could they balance their family’s safety with their growing money laundering empire? The answer proved to be as dark as fans have come to expect from the series, which is known for its bleak tone and gloomy visuals. Fans, then, will be both pleased and disappointed to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, with the show to return for Season 4 – which will also be the show’s last season.
The renewal was announced several months after Season 3’s March debut, with Netflix confirming that Season 4 will be split into two parts of seven episodes each.
