The following post contains spoilers for the third season of Ozark.
The story of the Byrde’s is coming to an end.
Netflix has announced that Ozark has been renewed for a fourth and final season which will consist of 14 episodes.
The last season of the cult hit will be split into two parts and is sure to tie up all the loose ends that season three left hanging.
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” showrunner Chris Mundy said in a statement.
“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.”
Jason Bateman will join forces with Mundy as the creative force behind the season, while favourites will return for the last hoorah.
“A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes,” Bateman said in a statement. “I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
Laura Linney will reprise her role of Wendy Byrde, while Julia Garner is back for a final time as Ruth Langmore. Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner will return as brother and sister, Charlotte and Jonah Byrde, while Charlie Tahan and Lisa Emery will play Wyatt Langmore and Darlene Snell respectively.
Season three saw characters die, drug empires born and Marty and Wendy align with a very powerful cartel.
Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) was killed by her employer, Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), Wendy had her brother, Ben Davis (Tom Pelphrey) murdered, Jonah learnt the truth about his parents, Ruth quit working for the Byrdes and joins Darlene’s operation and it’s safe to say, Maya Miller’s loyalties remain unclear.
So, what is to come of the Byrde’s? We’ll just have to wait and see.
The Byrde family’s journey ends here. Ozark will be returning for a fourth and final season on Netflix.
