For fans of Ozark, it must be relief that Netflix will let the creators finish the show's stories. It will clock in at 14 episodes, but will be broken into two parts with seven episodes each.

While Ozark season 4 does not have a release date just yet, it's safe to assume we'll be waiting another year - minimum.

Three seasons have already dropped on the streaming platform, each comprised of 10 episodes that last over 50 minutes apiece.

Additionally, the next series would be the longest run yet with a further four episodes on top of the usual 10 instalments.

"Ozark' is a gripping drama that has captivated audiences all around the world and garnered tremendous critical acclaim", Netflix's vice president of original content Cindy Holland concluded. "We're so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and can't wait to see how the Byrdes' journey comes to a close".

Julia Garner on Ozark season 3

Showrunner Chris Mundy, who previously said he planned five seasons of the show, has also remarked on the news of a lengthened season four. But now that we know the brooding drama is both coming back and coming to an end, it's time to start wondering what will become of Marty and Wendy Byrde (Bateman and Laura Linney) and the other denizens of Lake Ozark. The series from MRC Television is executive produced by Bateman, Mundy, Mark Williams, John Shiban, Patrick Markey and Bill Dubuque.

We see how the Byrde family accidentally gets involved in money laundering for a drug cartel.

The Byrde family is taking their final flight with their fourth season. Bateman won an Emmy for best directing in a drama series, while Garner won the Emmy for best supporting actress in a drama series. Bateman had this to say about the renewal. He was ecstatic to share the news of the confirmation with the fans.

It's unclear exactly when Ozark season four will begin production or be released on the streamer, but updates are sure to come in the next few months.
