Rejoice Ozark fans! Ozark Season 4 is just around the corner, but what that also means is we’re nearing the end of following around the Byrde family in the land of the Ozarks. It’s been a wild ride to get to this point, and some folks are still shaken up by how season 3 ended and where the show goes following the events that closed that particular season.
We know that season 4 will begin on January 21, 2022. That much is certain. However, there is a catch as the final season will be split into two parts, similar to what happened with Breaking Bad on AMC. There are already a lot of similarities between the two shows and this only adds another one. All we know about part 2 is that it will be released at some point later in 2022.
The Final Season
The two parts will each have seven episodes in total. And if you were wondering if Jason Bateman, who plays Marty on the show, knows how it all ends. Well, he does. He told IndieWire, “I do know where everything is going to end. The specifics leading up to it, I didn’t really grind him on.” So, Bateman knows what the final fate for the Byrdes entails, but he does not offer any clues or specifics. Based on how the show has evolved over the last three years it would be incredibly difficult to speculate and forecast where the story ultimately ends. However, that final answer is still very much on the horizon.
Bateman continued, “But I was interested in the big question he has the opportunity to answer: Are they going to get away with it, or are they going to pay a bill? What does he want to message to the audience about the consequences of what the Byrdes have done — or lack thereof?”
The ‘Ozark’ Ending
Could the Byrdes really get away with it all after everything that has already happened? With so much chaos and destruction and death around them. It seems rather unlikely the whole family walks away from the business unscathed. Too much has happened and too much still figures to happen.
He concluded, “We had some great conversations about that, and he’s got really good ideas about that. Specifically, what kind of happens at the end of the last episode: I know, and it’s great.”
So who knows how it all ends? Well, Bateman knows and the director knows. It’s nice to know that Bateman is on the same page with the direction of the Netflix program. That last episode is going to be a doozy for folks, and Bateman does not hesitate to hype it up as the Byrdes have 14 episodes of chaos still to weave their way through before the showrunners tie a neat bow on of the biggest shows of this century.
