We’ll be saying goodbye to Ozark, one of Netflix’s most praised drama series, by this time next month. Part two of Season 4 — or the final seven episodes of the series — will conclude Marty’s (Jason Bateman) and Wendy’s (Laura Linney) journey, and the main question for the final episodes is: will they be able to escape this game (largely) unscathed?
The plot revolves around a family who relocates to Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks in order to launch a money laundering business, but they run into difficulty when they attract the attention of the local mafia. The teaser for the final episodes suggests that the schism between Marty and Wendy is growing wider than ever, with the wife needing to prod her husband into finishing what they’ve started, especially now that everything is coming to an end. Marty’s crisis of conscience, though, may get the best of him after coming so near to death.
Ruth (Julia Garner), who embarks on a murdering spree after discovering the bodies of Wyatt (Charlie Tahan) and Darlene (Lisa Emery), the latter of whom Ruth explicitly sought to save, is another factor that could affect the course of Ozark‘s final season. As Ruth stated at the end of Part One, she is now a wild card who will only be stopped if someone kills her.
Today, Netflix also provided a treat that Ozark fans will undoubtedly appreciate. Aside from the last episodes, the streamer will broadcast a thirty-minute special called A Farewell to Ozark, which will serve as a “love letter” to Ozark and Ozark fans, as well as a big retrospective that will take viewers on a deep dive into the series’ final year. The special, which will be accessible on the same day as Season 4 Part 2 begins, will delve into the story’s beginnings, characters, and performances, as well as provide insight into the show’s legacy.
Ozark is a Netflix original series developed by Bill Dubuque (The Judge) and Mark Williams (Honest Thief) that launched in 2017. Throughout its course, the sitcom has won three Emmys and been nominated for several other accolades. The series also stars Sofia Hublitz, Bedford Lloyd, Jessica Frances Dukes, Felix Solis, Richard Thomas, Damian Young, Bruno Bichir, Alfonso Herrera, Adam Rothenberg, Skylar Gaertner, John Joseph Sikora, Bruce Davison, Bateman, Ali Stroker, Katrina Lenk, and Veronica Falcón, in addition to Linney, CC Castillo, and Garner.
On April 29, Netflix will release Part 2 of Ozark‘s final season. The trailer is available below:
