Ozark only returned to Netflix for a third season in March of 2020, but given that binge-watching conditions are optimal right now with everyone at home and social distancing, some fans are already thinking ahead to season four.
Here's what we know so far about the show's next chapter:
Season four will be the show's final chapter.
Per Netflix's official announcement, it will be 14 episodes split into two parts of 7-episodes each.
"We're so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes' saga right. 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," showrunner Chris Mundy said.
Mundy previously spoke of wanting as many as seven seasons.
"Well, if we’re lucky enough to get a season four, I think it will be about whether or not Ruth really can create something of her own that she wants and is sustainable, or if she wants something else," he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in March of 2020. "And I think it will be about if the Byrdes can they turn the biggest mistake of their lives into this huge advantage, and how much will karma catch up with them if they do?"
But he previously spoke of wanting as many as seven seasons for the show.
"We've always talked about it as five seasons. It could be four, it could be seven... but that always seemed like a good number to us," Mundy said during a panel at the Milken Global Conference in Beverly Hills last spring.
A date has yet to be announced.
If Netflix follows its usual cadence, it will likely premiere sometime in mid-late 2021, if the coronavirus doesn't severely impact production.
We'll keep you posted as soon as we hear more about the future of the series.
