Netflix has given the green light to Ozark Season 4, which will serve as the final season of the award-winning and critically-acclaimed family drama. Ozark Season 4 will consist of 14 episodes that will premiere in two parts with seven episodes each.
The new season will mark the final chapter in the Byrde family’s journey from suburban Chicago life to their criminal enterprise in the Ozarks.
Emmy Award nominee Chris Mundy will return as showrunner, writer and executive producer and will reunite with Emmy Award winner Jason Bateman as the creative forces behind both parts of the new season.

The series from MRC Television is executive produced by Bateman, Mundy, Mark Williams, John Shiban, Patrick Markey and Bill Dubuque. Linney will also be a co-executive producer for Ozark Season 4.
Chris Mundy, executive producer and showrunner, said: “We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right. It’s been such a great adventure for all of us — both on screen and off — so we’re thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible.”
Executive producer Jason Bateman added: “A super sized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content, said: “Ozark is a gripping drama that has captivated audiences all around the world and garnered tremendous critical acclaim. We’re so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and can’t wait to see how the Byrdes’ journey comes to a close.”
