Ozark is one of those web series that keeps you going all the time. The show is beloved by viewers and critics alike and is one of the best series ever produced by Netflix. Ozark Season 3 premiered last year, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the premiere of Ozark Season 4 on Netflix ever since.
The series recently garnered several Golden Globe nominations. Last year, Ozark aired on Netflix in late March. With Netflix in the habit of introducing a new season a year later, Ozark season 4 unfortunately did not air in spring 2021 due to production delays. There have also been rumors of the cancellation of season 4 of Ozark.
Is Ozark season 4 canceled? The teasers say a big “no”
Some time ago, rumors surfaced on the internet that Netflix had canceled season 4 of Ozark. However, they turned out to be false as the series is one of Netflix’s best series to date. Instead, OTT had given the production team an additional two-part season to wrap up the story.
Showrunner Chris Mundy said:
We are very happy that Netflix has recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to complete the Byrdes saga well. It has been a great adventure for all of us, on and off screen, and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring it home in the most satisfying way possible.
Jason Bateman, who plays Marty Byrde, wasn’t sure where and when Ozark will end. However, he hinted that it will not be a 12-season series. We agree with him, as Ozark is a very fast-paced series and it would be boring to see it continue for a few more seasons, considering how clever the leads are.
Ozark season 4 release date
Judging from the premiere dates above, Ozark generally takes around 19 months for the next season to hit screens. In the past, the web series has also had two short seasons. Additionally, with the production premiering in November 2020 and still no word on its end date, the final season of Ozark is delayed but not canceled.
There is a great possibility that Ozark season 4 will be split into 2 parts. Sources indicate that the first part of Ozark season 4 could air in the second half of 2021, and the second part will air in 2022.
However, the premiere of the first part in fall could be postponed until winter 2021. Netflix had not mentioned the last season of Ozark in the list of titles (including season 3 of Sex Education and season 2 of The Witcher) by come. in 2021 to its shareholders. That tells me something. Since the pandemic is not going away, fans are likely to see new episodes in early 2022.
Ozark Season 4 Trailer
If you search YouTube for the Ozark season 4 trailer, you will find some videos claiming the same thing. They are all fan-made as season 4 is still in production. It’s too early to wait for the Ozark season 4 trailer.
However, it was in June 2020 that Netflix made a short announcement regarding Ozark season 4. As we can see in the video, we see a graph transforming from a cross to a $$ sign to a 4 digit number.
Netflix is supposed to air the Ozark season 4 trailer during the 2021 Emmys, scheduled for September 19, 2021.
Ozark season 4 episodes …
One thing we do know about the final season of Ozark is that it will air in two parts, much like the final season of the most popular anime Attack on Titan. The full season will consist of 14 episodes, and the first half will have 7 episodes in total.
According to the leaks, Ozark season 4 episode 1 will be titled “The Beginning of the End.” The end of the last season will surely be impressive.
The plot of Ozark season 4
It looks like the series will resume from the moment Marty and Wendy saw Navarro shoot and kill Helen Pierce.
From what we can see, it seems that the Brydes are really related to Navarro. Another hurdle the couple will have to overcome is Ruth, who leaves the Brydes behind and works for Darlene Snell. Showrunner Chris Mundy told EW.com,
I think that [la saison 4] will be devoted to the question of whether Ruth can really create something of her own, what she wants and is durable, or if she wants something more. And I think it’s going to be if the Byrdes can turn the biggest mistake of their lives into a huge advantage, and how well will karma catch up with them if they do?
The cast of Ozark season 4
Here are the cast members scheduled to return in the next season of Ozark:
Jason Bateman (Marty Byrde)

In case you’re wondering if Ben Davis, played by Tom Pelphrey, will return in the next season, it’s pretty unlikely since his character is dead. Even if it does come back, it will probably be a reference to something that happened in the past. Other members who will not be present in season 4 since they died in the final season include Janet McTeer, who played the role of Helen Pierce, and Marylouise Burke, the therapist Sue Shelby.
New actors are also entering the series. Let’s see their names
Alfonso Herrera (The Exorcist) as Javi Elizonndro – “a member of the Navarro family who is a tightrope between being an obedient lieutenant and wanting to take control of his uncle’s cartel.”

Felix Solid (Charmed): Omar Navarro
Jim Rettelsdorf: Damian Young (Homeland)
Bruno Bichir (Narcos): Priest of Navarro
