OZARK renewed for a fourth and final season
Season 3 SPOILERS ahead...
Netflix has officially renewed Jason Bateman and Laura Linney’s bloody and fantastic crime drama for an expanded fourth and final season.
The keyword here is - expanded.
That’s right, the final season will consist of 14 episodes split into two 7-episode seasons. It's currently unknown when the final season will air or how Netflix plans to release what we'll call seasons 4a and 4b. But sources believe season 4 should drop in 2021.
Netflix Tweeted a gif of the show’s signature artwork along with the statement “They’re going to go out with a bang.”
For those who’ve completed season three's binge, “they” without (a) doubt refers to Marty and Wendy's burgeoning partnership with Navarro Cartel boss, Omar Navarro (Felix Solis). And now that Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) is officially OUT of the picture, the spotlight is on the Byrde’s to scale Navarro's operation with the help of FBI Agent Maya Miller (Jessica Frances Dukes) who, if turned, could potentially help bring down the cartel’s revivals. Right, we haven't forgotten about those headless bodies, have we?
Of course, with the decision to murder one of their own - RIP Uncle Ben (Tom Pelphrey) - laundering and drug wars may be the least of Marty and Wendy's problems. Team Byrde heads into season 4 with Jonah's family (Skylar Gaertner) allegiance in question and perhaps more notably, without Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) who has boarded Team Snell (and cousin Wyatt - Charlie Tahan) in their efforts to revitalize the heroin operation. And to complicate matters, we also know Darlene brokered a distribution deal with previous Byrde ally, KC mob leader Frank Cosgrove (John Bedford Lloyd).
Season 4 can't come soon enough!
