Netflix announces Ozark’s fourth and final season
On Netflix’s multiple social media platforms, it was announced that Ozark would be returning for a fourth and final season. Of course, the news about the series’ imminent ending broke the fans’ hearts. However, for the devotees’ satisfaction, the forthcoming installment will be a supersized one.
Reportedly, the series’ season finale will air in two parts, each consisting of seven episodes. The streaming service’s brief synopsis for the show’s final run is cagey yet enticing. It reads:

Cast and crew’s sentiments about Ozark’s end
Although the news was heart-breaking, the team behind the highly acclaimed series has appreciated Netflix for allowing them the opportunity to wrap up the show. Ozark’s executive producer and showrunner Chris Mundy further expressed his sentiments regarding the show’s end.
“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.”
Moreover, Jason Bateman, one of Ozark’s lead casts, showcased his excitement to end the series with a bang. He went on to tease the show’s conclusion with the words:
“A supersized season means supersized problems for the Byrdes.”
Who will return
Aside from Chris Mundy, Jason Bateman will return as the series’ executive producer at the same time as the lead cast. Alongside Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan, and Lisa Emery are all set to reprise their respective roles for the fourth season.
Nevertheless, it’s uncertain whether Tom Pelphrey will return as Ben Davis due to his character’s death. If the actor will return, it’s more than likely to be in a flashback.
