Ozark season three came out on Netflix in March 2020 with 10 new episodes. But what comes next for the Jason Bateman and Laura Linney drama series, which has been compared favourably to Breaking Bad? Express.co.uk has everything you need to know.
Will there be another series of Ozark?
Netflix has confirmed Ozark has been given the green light for season four.
However, season four will be the last outing for the show which means Ozark has been cancelled.
In another twist, Netflix has given the series a 14-episode order, which will see the last outing split in two.
Previously, some fans were worried it may have been cancelled after not hearing anything for a while.
Season three came out on March 27, 2020 with fans waiting on tenterhooks for any news
The third outing of Ozark got the green light in October 2018 after coming out in August.
When will Ozark season 4 be released?
Release dates for Ozark have varied in the past with season one debuting in July 2017, season two coming out in August 2018 and the third outing in March 2020.
The differing release dates mean it’s very tricky trying to predict when a possible season four will be coming out.
Season four’s release date will depend on when filming can start amid the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Bateman, filming will be starting in November 2020, so this is positive and could see season four, episode one coming out sooner rather than later.
Also, as season four is coming in two segments, this means there will be two release dates for parts one and two.
Director and star Jason Bateman’s schedule is likely to be a factor in the release given he’s working on other projects as well.
There was a massive gap of over 18 months between seasons two and three and fans could expect a similar wait for a fourth cycle.
Who will be in the cast of Ozark season 4?
The main players of Ozark would be back for season four, which means Bateman as financial advisor Marty Byrde.
Laura Linney would be back in the frame as his wife Wendy as will Sofia Hublitz as daughter Charlotte and Skylar Gaertner as son Jonah.
Other cast members who could be reprising their role are Julia Garner as Ruth Langmore, Lisa Emery as Darlene Snell, Charlie Tahan as Wyatt Langmore and Omar Navarro (Felix Solis).
The show could also see the comeback of Power star Joseph Sikora as Frank Cosgrove Jr, John Bedford Lloyd as head of the Kansas City mob Frank Sr and Darren Goldstein as Charles Wilkes.
Season four is also likely to see some fresh faces as the Byrdes expand their operations further.

WARNING: This section contains spoilers from Ozark season 3
Season four is going to be picking up from the latest outing which saw the Byrde family very much in league with the Navarro Cartel now, whether they liked it or not.
Marty’s reservations and urge to back out of the illegal casino operations were a factor in season three and his reticence is likely to continue in season four.
Instead, Wendy is likely to become the key player as Marty takes more of a backseat as the more risk averse member of the couple.
They will also have problems and rivalry from Darlene, who poached Ruth from the Byrdes and is planning to run her heroin business with her help.
Given Ruth’s knowledge of the Byrde family, she will make a formidable opponent alongside Darlene.
To add another layer of drama, the KC Mob sided with Darlene as well, which hints at all-out war.
Navarro is also going to be displeased with this development, which could have an impact on his own business.
The show will also see the development of the Byrde children, particularly after Jonah started to realise the nature of his family.
There have been theories Ruth could kill hitman Nelson for bumping off her father and also boyfriend.
Some fans are wondering if Ruth will become an FBI informant against the Byrdes.
Other are wondering whether Nelson allowed Ben to live in a twist.
There have been questions over what really happened between Cade and Ruth before his death.
Some fans were worried about the future of the show after a glitch seemed to remove season one temporarily from Netflix. However, this has now been restored and is back on the site.
There are viewers who are wondering how Ozark is going to be ending and some who want to know if Marty and Wendy will be killed in the series finale.
Viewers are wondering who will be replacing slain cartel lawyer Helen now.
There are questions about whether the Byrdes can actually stop the Navarro Cartel.
