Netflix’s ‘Ozark’ to end with a fourth, extended season

The dark Netflix drama “Ozark,” set in Missouri but shot around Georgia, will conclude with an expanded fourth season.

Like “Game of Thrones” and “Breaking Bad,” “Ozark” will conclude with one season, separated in half. Seven episodes will come out first, followed by seven more final episodes.

Release dates have not been announced. The pandemic has backed up productions across the board for months, so it’s unclear when Netflix will be able to get “Ozark” in production again.

Will the criminally and morally questionable Byrde family — led by actors Jason Bateman and Laura Linney — escape consequences or truly pay for their sins?

"We're so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes' saga right,” said Chris Mundy, the show’s showrunner, in a press release. “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."

Bateman teased: “A super sized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”

The show, which debuted in 2017, has delivered 14 Emmy nominations and two wins on top of two Golden Globe nominations and six Screen Actors Guild nominations.
