Netflix has renewed the family crime drama “Ozark” for a 14-episode final season that will be presented in two batches of seven episodes each. The debut dates for the season have not yet been announced.
The fourth and final season of “Ozark” will conclude the story of the Byrde family’s journey from suburban Chicago life to attempting to establish a criminal enterprise in the Ozarks of Missouri.
Emmy Award nominee Chris Mundy will return as showrunner, writer and executive producer, joined behind the camera by series star Jason Bateman, who previously won an Emmy for directing on the show. Other returning cast members include Laura Linney, Julia Garner (who won an Emmy for the second season), Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan and Lisa Emery.
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” Mundy said in a statement. “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.”
The previous three seasons of the show ran for 10 episodes each.
