Netflix crime drama Ozark returned for its highly-anticipated third season with a bang, as the Byrde family once again got pushed to their limits on more than one occasion.
Marty was abducted and tortured by the drug kingpin himself, Omar Navarro, who isn’t done with his star accountant and wife Wendy just yet. Meanwhile, the Byrde matriarch was forced to do the unthinkable and order a hit on her own brother Ben to save their family from being slaughtered by the cartel.
Netflix has confirmed that the series will return for a fourth (and final) 14-episode season, which will be split into two parts.
The popularity of Ozark has skyrocketed, becoming one of the biggest and best Originals on Netflix to date. In April 2020, we got word that the series ranks among the most-watched titles of all time. Just under 30 million people watched the third season.
The show kickstarted its life on Netflix back in the summer of 2017 and despite drawing constant comparisons to Breaking Bad, it’s earned its place among the best on Netflix. It’s been a big awards magnets earning 32 Emmy nominations alone. The most recent season landed on Netflix back in March 2020.
The final season will be divided into two parts; the first part is expected to be released in late 2021. The second part is likely to debut next year, possibly spring 2022.
Netflix first announced Ozark would return for a fourth and final season last June.
