Netflix juggernaut Ozark has been renewed for a fourth and final season bringing an end to the Byrde family’s gripping story.
The drama starring Jason Bateman, Laura Linney and Julie Garner will be split into two parts, with seven episodes each — four more than the previous seasons.
Chris Mundy, the show’s producer, will return alongside Bateman, who will also direct.
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving ‘Ozark’ more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” Mundy said.
“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.”
Bateman plays the role of Marty Byrde, a Chicago financial advisor, who moves to the Ozarks with his family to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel.
“A super sized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes,” Bateman said.
“I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
The third season which premiered in March this year was estimated to be viewed by 30 million people in the first four weeks and has become a hit for the streaming platform.
The show which first aired in 2017 has received 14 Emmy nominations with Bateman taking out Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series and Julie Gardner for Outstanding Supporting Actress in the same category.
