Ozark will be returning to Netflix for one final, super-sized adventure for the Byrde family. The crime-thriller series was picked up for a fourth and final season in July 2020 and is currently in production to bring new episodes to fans in 2022. The final season will be broken into two seven-episode chunks, with the first half arriving early in the new year. The season can't get here soon enough because we have so many questions after Season 3.
Will Ruth (Julia Garner) ever forgive Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) after Ben's (Tom Pelphrey) death? Will Marty and Wendy ever be able to go legit? Is being in bed with Navarro actually going to help the Byrdes? What does Darlene (Lisa Emery) have up her sleeve in this final season? There's so much more to discover, and with months to go until Season 4 arrives, TV Guide is gathering clues for what's to come.
Huzzah! The Byrdes are returning in early 2022, indeed. Netflix announced in October via an ominous teaser that Ozark Season 4: Part 1 will premiere on Jan. 21.
Well, things are going to be bloody for Marty and Wendy. Jason Bateman revealed a sneak peek of Ozark Season 4, Part 1 during Netflix's TUDUM festival on Sept. 25, which features the couple cleaning off blood from their faces and clothes at what looks like Navarro's mansion. Yeah, seems like they are in this cartel life for real.
Several new cast members were added to Season 4 in November of 2020, per Deadline. Alfonso Herrera will play Javi Elizonndro, a member of the Navarro family who walks a fine line between playing the obedient lieutenant and scheming to take over his uncle's cartel. Adam Rothenberg joins as Mel Sattem, a cop who fell from grace who now works as a P.I.. Veronica Falcón and Ali Stroker will play the sister of a drug cartel leader and an old friend of Ruth's, respectively.
Bruno Bichir (Narcos) as Navarro's Priest, CC Castillo (Outer Banks) as Sheriff Leigh Guerrero, and Katrina Lenk (The Band's Visit) as Clare Shaw, CEO of a prominent pharmaceutical company, were added to the season as recurring characters.
The first three seasons of Ozark are now available to stream on Netflix.
