This article includes spoilers for Ozark Season Four, Part Two.
After five great, nervous years of watching Ozark, I’ll share with you what my mom—my true Ozark watching companion—texted when the series finale credits rolled:
However, the news isn’t all rosy. Ozark season 4’s last seven episodes are now available to stream on Netflix, bringing the critically acclaimed crime drama to a close.
Prepare yourself, Ozark fans: the fourth season’s second half is now available to stream on Netflix.
Is that everything? The end?
I’m sorry to break it to her and to all of the Esquire readers who have followed our coverage of the show. That’s it, though. That concludes the discussion. It is my journalistic duty to notify you that everyone involved with Ozark has stated that Season Four will be the final season. The cast even put together a melodramatic send-off video. But there are two things we’ll do. First, let’s look through what Ozark showrunner Chris Mundy and star Jason Bateman have stated about where the Byrdes are headed following the finale. Then, in a circumstance like this, we’ll do the only thing we can—imagine a way (or two) for Ozark’s story to continue. As a special treat.
Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) have had a wild journey since they set up their family in the Ozarks to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel, with plenty of twists and turns along the way.
The Netflix original has been a major success for the streaming service, with the first half of season 4 achieving the highest watching figures for any streaming title in nearly two years.
Furthermore, the most recent installment of episodes finishes on a massive cliffhanger, which is sure to leave some fans hungry for more. More on it in our spoiler-filled Ozark season 4 part 2 finale explained post.
Mundy told Vanity Fair, “I think they’ve gone on.” “They got what they thought they wanted.” But, to be honest, I believe they’re carrying a curse.” Bateman had a lot more to say in the same Vanity Fair article. “I’m betting they’ll go up to Chicago and put Wendy’s idea to the test: Have we accumulated enough political capital to put some things in place that will help people?” “he added. “It took a long time to get that money, but will the goal justify the means? While I believe they are smarter now than when we first met them, I believe their arrogance and hubris will continue to trip them up. I believe that humility would lead them to make better decisions, but I don’t believe they have reached that point yet.”
It’s time for some guesswork. You’d have to imagine that if we had the miracle of all miracles and Netflix renewed Ozark for a fifth season, future episodes would be business as usual. Assume Jonah fires a shot at Mel. The Byrdes would be free of any trail leading to their ordered hit on Ben, at least for the time being. But that is far from the end of their worries. The Byrdes will certainly confront a huge barrier in laundering money through the casino if Camila Navarro kills Ruth Langmore (we’re still heartbroken over this one). Rachel would gain full possession of the Missouri Belle because I’m not privy to the tiny print on the legal documents. If I’m wrong, please correct me. Rachel was clearly not going to allow the Byrdes to bully her again.
Why isn’t there a fifth season of Ozark?

In June 2020, it was reported that the show would be back for a “supersized” fourth and final season, consisting of 14 episodes split into two parts.
Meanwhile, the Byrdes would have to adjust to another another boss’s peculiarities, as Camila Navarro appears to be lot more bloodthirsty than she first appeared. There are a couple of stray personalities left in Ozark-land, aside from the Byrdes returning to their pranks and the Navarros Navarro-ing. Mainly? Three and Zeke. The last two Langmore (or Langmore-adjacent) tribe members have been left to their own devices. Why can’t we get a baby Zeke and Three spin-off where they take Ruth’s inheritance and explore the world instead of more Byrde and Navarro nonsense? A warm-hearted road trip would be welcome after the darkness of Ozark’s end. However, we suspect the show’s creators would agree.

Meanwhile, before the final season was revealed, Bateman said in an interview with Collider about the show’s third season, “I think there’s always been the presumed range [of] three seasons, four seasons, five seasons, something like that.”
Because of Marty and Wendy’s intelligence and the rate of escalation in the danger and the play, Bateman decided not to “jump the shark,” saying that “they’re either going to be killed or placed in jail.”
Ozark Season 5? When it will Come? Release Date?
This is the most often requested question.
There is a good following for the hugely successful Netflix series. The show’s fourth and final season has aired according to Netflix.
By now, everyone is aware that Ozark season 4 was split into two distinct parts. There were fourteen episodes in all!
