Ozark Ending With Two-Part Season 4 on Netflix

One of the best shows now on television is coming to an end.

Netflix has officially announced that Ozark's upcoming fourth season will be its last.

The past three seasons of the Netflix original have all consisted of 10 episodes, but according to Variety, the fourth and final season will be made up of 14 episodes released in two separate parts. Season 4 will be split into two parts consisting of seven episodes each. Dates for the new season haven't been revealed yet, mostly because it's not quite clear when production can begin on the new season due to the ongoing issues with the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We're so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes' saga right", showrunner Chris Mundy told the site.

Ozark stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner. (The polls close on July 13 and nominations will be unveiled on July 28.) Netflix is making a strong Emmy push for the show's third season, which dropped in late March.

Following the growing criminal enterprise of Chicago transplants Marty (Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney), Ozark has garnered awards recognition in front and behind the camera, with Bateman previously taking home the Emmy for Outstanding Directing, while Julia Garner scored an Outstanding Supporting Actress trophy.

From the sounds of things, fans can expect more of the same intense drama in season four. That way, it's nearly like there are two shortened seasons left, as opposed to just one. Of particular note in these fresh announcements is Bateman's assertion that Ozark will end with a "bang (s)", implying more than one character will likely endure a calamitous ending.

"The alternative is to flatten out that pitch so that you don't end up jumping the shark, but then you start stalling just for additional episodes and seasons".

Are YOU sad to see Ozark go?
