Ozark Renewed for Expanded Fourth & Final Season at Netflix
Netflix’s crime drama series Ozark has been renewed for an expanded fourth and final season at the streamer, according to Variety. The fourth season will consist of 14 episodes, split into two parts consisting of seven episodes each. The previous seasons ran with 10 episodes each.
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” showrunner Chris Mundy said. “It’s been such a great adventure for all of us — both on screen and off — so we’re thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible.”
“A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes,” added Jason Bateman said. “I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
Mundy will return as showrunner, writer and executive producer and will reunite with Bateman as the creative forces behind both parts of the new season. Also set to return for the final season are series stars Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan, and Lisa Emery.
The series from MRC Television is executive produced by Bateman, Mundy, Mark Williams, John Shiban, Patrick Markey, and Bill Dubuque. Linney will also be a co-executive producer for Season 4.
Since its debut in 2017, Ozark has earned 14 Emmy nominations. Bateman won an Emmy for best directing in a drama series, while Garner won the Emmy for best supporting actress in a drama series.
