Ozark, Season 4: A Sneak Peek and Big Frustration

Ozark is going out with a bang. We just don’t know exactly when that bang will happen.

Netflix is gearing up for the fourth and final season of Ozark. The plan is for season four to have a total of 14 episodes. These episodes will be offered in two blocks of seven, and each section will be offered at a different part of the year. The show’s creator and star, Jason Bateman, promises that season four will have plenty of action. All this sounds great but there’s just one thing missing: a start date.

Ozark, Season 4: What We Do Know

So, we don’t know when it starts but we do know how it starts. Season four opens right where season three ended. Fans of the series remember just how shocking that was! If you’re NOT a fan of the show, the ending was bloody and gruesome. As a result, the teaser trailer for season four is just as gory. If you’re squeamish – and you’re still reading this – you DON’T have to watch this video. In fact, I recommend that you don’t.

Wow! We Can See What’s Going on Here

Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) are trying to clean up at cartel boss Omar Navarro’s home. Apparently, there’s some type of party going on. Talk about uncomfortable! This setup leaves me with many questions, which include:

  • Are the Byrdes being held prisoner in Navarro’s home?
  • If so, why? I honestly don’t remember because it’s been so long since season three ended. (We all know why.)
  • Also, if the Byrdes are being held up at Navarro’s house, who’s watching their children? Those two are prone to disaster so I can only imagine where that might go.
  • What will other sketchy characters do in the Byrdes’ absence? I’m specifically looking at you, Ruth Langmore, Darlene Snell, and Frank Cosgrove.

I’m sure there are some more things I’ll want to know. I’ll probably remember them long after I’ve uploaded this content and have gone home for the weekend. Oh well! If you’re a fan and you have questions, drop them in the comments section below. I’d like to read what other fans are thinking about this captivating TV series.

So, When Does Ozark, Season 4 Start?

As I said above, I don’t know. Neither do the producers, I’ll bet. Rumor has it that filming recently wrapped and the crew will begin post-production. That might mean that the first half of season four could begin sometime early in 2022. If that’s the case, the second half might air in the last few months of the year. This is all a guess, though. We won’t know until we know, then I will know one thing… Mrs. Buckler and I will be tuning in!
