‘Ozark’ season 4 renewal uncertain, ‘Breaking Bad’ counterpart centers on ruthlessness

Ozark has earned its place as one of the best American crime drama TV series. It was even been compared to its counterpart, Breaking Bad. However, Ozark season 4 renewal is still unsure.

The series was initially released in Summer 2017 and immediately picked up viewers because of its fantastic plot. With Ozark‘s success for three seasons, fans are anticipating the series’ bigger twists in season 4.

Even though Netflix has not yet released any official statement, creators Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams are optimistic about Ozark season 4 renewal.

Ozark follows the life of the Byrde family who relocated to the Ozarks after Marty Byrde following a money-laundering scheme gone wrong.

When will Netflix release Ozark season 4

Although there is no renewal yet for Ozark season 4, there is a big possibility that it will return because of its high rating. The series may return on April 2021 or October 2021. However, the coronavirus pandemic impacted most of the TV industry filming. Hence, Ozark‘s release date may be pushed back early in 2022.

Jason Bateman who plays Marty Byrde is also hoping that a fourth season will eventually happen. He said,

“I know [showrunner Chris Mundy] and his team are hard at work figuring out what that fourth season would be if that official pick-up lands.”

Furthermore, showrunner Chris Mundy also talked about Ozark to run for five to seven seasons. According to him,

“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. We’re building little things in, if we keep on track for the emotional ending we’re guessing we’ll have.”

What to expect from Ozark season 4 plot

Ozark season 3 consisted of 10 episodes filled with thrilling twists. Season 3 revealed Ruth lost her loyalty to the Byrdes and sided with Darlene at the Snell poppy farm.  Ozark season 4 will unveil Ruth’s inner power to decide for herself, and there’s a lot for Ruth to prove herself to the Byrde that she is not as weak as they think.

Season 4 plot might also look at Wendy who let his brother Ben die in the hands of Helen’s hitman.  Although Wendy was seen as a strong and cold-hearted woman, she might regret her decisions in the future.

Ozark season 4 will also reveal the decision of the Byrde family to become Navarro’s right-hand couple. Marty and Laura decided to prove their loyalty to Navarro by seemingly stopping the war between the Navarro and Lagunas cartel. The Byrdes will yet to reveal their ruthlessness.

Hence,  showrunner Mundy explained that Byrde’s decision will impact their family’s survival. Mundy said,

“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?”
