After a two-year hiatus, Ozark, the wildly popular Emmy award-winning Netflix crime drama series, is back January 21st for the first half of its fourth and final season.
Netflix will drop 7 of the 14 new episodes that will wrap up the twisted saga of the dysfunctional family of four who are laundering money for a powerful Mexican drug cartel in the Missouri Ozarks. The prior three seasons each had only 10 episodes.
At the end of Season 3, Jason Bateman and Laura Linney’s Marty and Wendy Byrde were left stunned after Mexican drug cartel leader Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) took his right-hand woman Helen (Janet McTeer) out of the picture with… well, a bang, and Ruth Langmore (double Emmy winner Julia Garner) split from the Byrdes to join forces with her cousin Wyatt (Charlie Tahan) and his local drug queenpin/girlfriend Darlene (Lisa Emery). In Season 4, it appears as though some of the biggest threats to the Byrde family’s future come from within.
Netflix says it will release the second half of Season 4 later in 2022. If prior seasons are any indicator, there will be LOTS of drama in store for the Byrdes and their associates. Here is our review of the prior three seasons.
