'Ozark': Netflix renews series for fourth and final season

It is not known when the season will air but it is likely to be next year as production was shutdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The fourth season will consist of 14 episodes, with the first three seasons having been 10 episodes each.

"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".

"I'm excited to end with a bang".

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

However Jason and Laura, as well as Sophia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner who play their children, are all slated to come back as are Lisa Emery and Charlie Tahan. "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", Mundy said in a statement.

And it's not as if the show will be short on storylines either after a gripping third season with a particularly shocking finale, even by Ozark's standards. Linney will also be a co-executive producer for Season 4.

Besides, news that the next season will be the last is hardly a surprise given recent comments by Marty Byrde himself, Jason Bateman, who also serves as executive producer on the show.

Ozark won two Emmys in 2019 for Bateman's direction and Julia Garner's supporting performance and has racked up 14 nominations to date.

Ozark has received 14 Emmy nominations since its premiere in 2017. "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". Things go wrong, and they end up trying to rebuild their lives and pay off their debts in a Missouri tourist town.
