Netflix offers a lot of great returning shows, but the 4th season of Ozark is one of the most eagerly anticipated ones. This crime thriller series by Netflix, starring Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, began as a parody of Breaking Bad before evolving into its beast, and fans are getting close to the end now. Chris Mundy will be returning as showrunner for the 4th season of Ozark.
And while star Jason Bateman has historically helmed the opening two episodes of each season, this will unfortunately not be possible for Ozark’s last season. The 4th season of Ozark has been divided into two parts, and it is also going to be the show’s final season. While no official release date for the upcoming episodes has been set yet, there is still a lot to know about the series before the fans get an official announcement.
We’ve got some new casting news, a few production updates, along a few plot tidbits to keep you entertained. Scroll down to find out all you need to know about the new season of Ozark on Netflix.
When can the Fans Expect Ozark Season 4?
There’s no set a date for the 4th season of Ozark, and with the epidemic, it’s difficult to say when the Netflix series will return. However, Jason Bateman earlier stated that filming would begin in November 2020, along with the news that everything was “going along nicely” under the new COVID norms and protocols.
Ozark Season 4 will premiere on October 8, 2021, and will be the show’s final season. We may probably expect to hear about the release date before the end of 2021. And we’ll be able to see another amazing season in early 2022 (1st half) and later. Jason Bateman revealed some fascinating insights regarding the production and what that means for season 4 in an interview with Collider right before the 4th season’s announcement.
He explained that each episode takes about eleven days to shoot, plus two weeks of preparation time. It takes around six months of production time to shoot an entire season. This will, of course, take longer if the season is longer. But that doesn’t rule out the possibility of Part 1 being released while Part 2 is being finished.
What to Expect from Ozark Season 4?
While plot specifics are scarce at the moment, it’s simple to predict what will happen in the 4th season of Ozark. We know one thing that Ruth is likely to do something drastic as a result of Wendy’s decision to let Ben die, and now that Ruth is on Darlene’s team, it could spell more trouble for the Byrdes.
According to the official storyline summary for the 4th season of Ozark, the new upcoming season will chronicle the final chapter in the Byrde family’s quest from suburban Chicago existence to their illegal operation in the Ozarks. Moreover, Jason Bateman had also teased what to expect in the film, where he revealed that for the Byrdes, a supersized season equals supersized troubles. Jason further went on to say that he was looking forward to wrapping things out with a bang.
