Ozark Season 4 is currently filming, and fans can’t wait to find out how Netflix’s American crime thriller will conclude its story. Netflix has already confirmed that Season 4 will be split into two parts, and the release date for Part 1 has already been revealed.
While Netflix is still keeping the important details of Ozark season 4 under wraps, we already have info on confirmed cast members, plot teasers and more.
On October 1, star Jason Bateman said on the SmartLess podcast that he thinks Ozark season 4 will premiere on Netflix in January 2022, but it didn’t sound like he was 100% sure that Netflix had confirmed it yet. On October 19, Netflix confirmed the official release date for Part 1 in a new teaser. The first seven episodes (Part 1) will be released on January 21, 2022.
While Netflix has not confirmed the release date for Part 2, it is expected to be released sometime in 2022.
Due to the complicated filming schedule caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is difficult to predict exactly when the new episodes will be released, but Jason Bateman previously said that production would start in autumn 2020.
Actress Julia Garner said in an interview with W Magazine that Ozark’s fourth season is expected to air in October 2021.
In September 2021, director Amanda Marsalis shared a production update on Instagram, revealing that she was almost done with the four episodes she is directing for Ozark season 4.
Ozark Season 4: What Will Happen In The Final Season?
In the season 3 finale of Ozark, Navarro orders Marty, Wendy and Helen to attend his son’s second baptism in Mexico, but things take a bloody turn when Nelson executes Helen, and Navarro tells Marty and Wendy that “today is a beginning” of their increased cooperation”.
Bateman also shared a brief teaser for Ozark Season 4: “A supersized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
Ruth, now part of Darlene’s team, is likely to do something dangerous after Wendy has Ben killed. This could spell trouble for Byrde. His decision to leave and distance himself from the family means he now runs the day-to-day production of Darlene’s company, ensuring that locally produced heroin reaches the Kansas City mob for distribution.
In an interview with IndieWire, Julia Garner said that in the final season “she [Ruth] wants that independence back that she had before the Byrdes came in”.
