Ozark may be the best series that Netflix has produced. Through three seasons, it has been downright great. And it appears that Season 4 is set to wrap it all up in a nice bow.
Since you clicked looking for the trailer and release info that I promised in the headline, let me give it to you:
For your catching up, Season 3 ended with Marty being taken captive by crime boss, Omar Navarro, and Wendy being forced to take out a hit on her own brother to save the rest of her family…
Season 4 does not appear to be holding back on the family drama — at least according to all 53 seconds of that trailer.
The teaser begins with Marty stating, “money, at its essence, the measure of a man’s choices.” The trailer then packs on more than just a few ominous warnings, including, “broken promises got consequences” and “sometimes, if you don’t move forward, you die.”
Ozark originally premiered in 2017 and was created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams and follows the Byrde family. It features Marty, a financial planner turned drug runner, his wife Wendy, and the family’s two teenage children. The premise is simple: after a money laundering scheme goes wrong, the family moves from Chicago to a summer resort community in the Ozarks, and the show documents their dangerous criminal enterprise.
Despite being the best thing on the streaming platform, Netflix announced in June 2020 that the show would end with this season. Honestly, I am good with it. There is only so much interest you can keep up and if the show just become a constant circle of Marty succeeding but failing and chasing his tail, it would get pretty awful (I’m looking at you, The Walking Dead)…
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes saga right,” showrunner Chris Mundy said at the time. “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.”
I hope they do make the most of it and knock this season out. I am ready for January.
