Netflix’s ‘Ozark’ Renewed For Fourth & Final Season
Netflix has announced that the crime drama series Ozark has been renewed for the expanded final season. The fourth season will have 14 episodes that will premiere in two separate, seven episode parts.
“A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes,” Ozark star and EP Jason Bateman said in a statement. “I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
“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,” said showrunner Chris Mundy, as reported by TVLine.
They’re going to go out with a bang.

The news of renewal comes just days ahead of the commencement of Emmy voting, in which the show’s third season is a strong contender from Netflix. In fact, “Ozark” won two Emmys – Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, at the 2019 award ceremony.
For the fourth and final season, we get to see Bateman, Julia Garner, Skylar Gaetner, Sofia Hublitz, Lisa Emery, and Charlie Tahan will be reprising their roles, while Laura Linney will also be the co-executive producer of “Ozark” Season 4.
