The fourth and final season of Netflix’s family crime drama Ozark will debut on the streaming service in January. On Tuesday, the streamer premiered a teaser trailer, a moody flyover with equally moody voiceover from star Jason Bateman, to announce the formal date for the season.
Netflix first teased the two-part conclusion — the 14-episode final season will be split into seven-episode drops that both air next year — during its Tudum event in September, showing how the Byrde family will contend with its new and, uhh, improved(?) relationship with the Navarro drug cartel.
Ozark season 4 will also reckon with the traumatic events of last season’s arc, which ended with the deaths of Wendy Byrde’s brother Ben (and son Jonah’s awareness of Wendy’s role in it), and the Byrde’s cartel go-between, attorney Helen Pierce, as well as Ruth Langmore’s split from the Byrdes.
Created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams, Netflix’s Ozark debut in 2017 with a 10-episode season and quickly found popularity with its mix of family and organized crime drama. The series stars Bateman and Laura Linney as Marty and Wendy Byrde, a husband-and-wife money-laundering team that uproots their family and moves to central Missouri to expand their operations working for a Mexican drug cartel. The series has won multiple Emmys, including one for Bateman as director and two for actor Julia Garner, who portrays Ruth Langmore.
Ozark season 4 part 1 will be released on Netflix on Jan. 21, 2022
