Ozark returned to Netflix for a third season in March of 2020, and, now, over a year later, some fans are thinking ahead to season four. The series was delayed a bit due to the pandemic, but now is headed back to the streamer on January 21, 2022.
Here's what we know so far about the show's next chapter:
Watch a new season 4 clip.
Netflix debuted an official first look for season four at the end of September. In the short video, Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) Byrde wash blood off themselves in a mansion bathroom, as a party is in full swing outside.
A full trailer was released in October 2021.
The fourth season will arrive in early 2022.
Mark your calendars. At the end of the new trailer, Netflix revealed that the show will return on January 21, 2022. The final season will air in two parts, both of which will air next year. A premiere date for the second part has yet to be announced.
Season four will be the show's final chapter.
Per Netflix's official announcement, it will be 14 episodes split into two parts of 7-episodes each.
"We're so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes' saga right. 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," showrunner Chris Mundy said.
Bateman, too, is on-board with how things end.
"I do know where everything is going to end," Bateman said, per IndieWire. "I was interested in the big question he has the opportunity to answer: Are they going to get away with it, or are they going to pay a bill? What does he want to message to the audience about the consequences of what the Byrdes have done – or lack thereof?"
He continued: "We had some great conversations about that, and he's got really good ideas about that. Specifically, what kind of happens at the end of the last episode: I know, and it's great."
Mundy previously spoke of wanting as many as seven seasons.
"Well, if we’re lucky enough to get a season four, I think it will be about whether or not Ruth really can create something of her own that she wants and is sustainable, or if she wants something else," he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March of 2020. "And I think it will be about if the Byrdes can they turn the biggest mistake of their lives into this huge advantage, and how much will karma catch up with them if they do?"
But he previously spoke of wanting as many as seven seasons for the show.
"We've always talked about it as five seasons. It could be four, it could be seven... but that always seemed like a good number to us," Mundy said during a panel at the Milken Global Conference in Beverly Hills last spring.
Actor Bruce Davison is joining the production.
Per Deadline, he'll "play Randall Schafer, a powerful retired Illinois U.S. Senator who is accustomed to doing things his way," joining a well-established cast of characters.
We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear more about the future of the series.
