Fans on Reddit can’t either. After the new teaser trailer dropped, one user wrote, “I wonder how much of this season is going to take place in Mexico and what that will mean for Ruth/characters still in Ozark.”

Another wrote, “I told myself I wouldn’t watch this teaser. I lasted 7 minutes.”

Safe to say fans of Ozark are ready to see how this ends for the Byrde clan.

Why ‘Ozark’ Is Ending

Ozark does not have to wrap up with season 4, but they are choosing to wrap up with season 4. It is popular enough to keep going for years, similar to The Walking Dead, but the showrunners and cast see it differently. They don’t want to overstate their welcome. They want to get out before things get too crazy and fans lose interest. Lead actor Jason Bateman said, “If you keep going for a whole lot longer, you’re going to go over the cliff, or up over the peak of the mountain and you end up jumping the shark.”

He’s right, and he wants to see the show end with all the momentum in the world.

Bateman continued, “So, given the intelligence of Marty Byrde and Wendy Byrde, if they keep going at this pitch for much longer, they’re either going to be killed or put in jail. The alternative is to flatten out that pitch so that you don’t end up jumping the shark, but then you start stalling just for additional episodes and seasons. So, I’m not sure where and when it’ll end, but given their intelligence, it doesn’t feel like it’s a 12-season show.”

He makes a good point here. The Byrdes are way in over their head. This cannot continue on for years. The only way out has to happen sooner rather than later. It becomes too unrealistic if this doesn’t end soon. You cannot keep doing what they’re doing and realistically expect them to continue navigating this crime world effectively. It has to end. It has to end before things get too silly, and with what we know about season 4, the ending will be anything but. Still, man, we will miss the Byrdes when they’re gone.
