After five great and tense years of watching Ozark, I'd want to share with you what my mother, who has been my Ozark watching buddy since the beginning, emailed me when the credits rolled on the series finale:
Is that all there is to it? Is this the end?
Although I hate to tell it, I have no choice but to do it in front of her and all of the Esquire readers who have been following our coverage of the performance. But that's all there is to it. That brings us to the conclusion.
Until Monday, the final episode of Ozark will be unavailable for viewing on Netflix, so we'll have to postpone any discussion of what happened (or didn't happen!!!) until then. For the time being, however, it is my journalistic responsibility to notify you that each and everyone who has had a hand in the production of Ozark has repeatedly stated that Season Four will be the series' final season. To make matters worse, the cast created a melodramatic farewell video.
For the time being, the best we can do is deliver to you, without providing any substantial context, what Ozark showrunner Chris Mundy and star Jason Bateman have indicated about how the series will conclude. “I always want a satisfying conclusion,” Mundy told The Hollywood Reporter after the release of Part One.
“I don't want to be made to feel uncomfortable. I want to be able to say, “OK, that was the end of it.” So, ideally, by the end, people will have a sense of closure—whether they like it or not, I have no idea. In terms of tone, we're delving more into the dynamics of the family and their relationships. Is family the strongest of all bonds?
Is friendship still a thing? Is it possible to have a happy marriage? When does it become virtually unhealthy to stay, even if you are in love with someone? Marty and Wendy are going to be the ones to dive into this. “Hopefully, the second half will be just as entertaining and exciting as the first, but also extremely emotional for the Byrdes and Ruth.”
Mundy, on the other hand, is said to have told Bateman how Ozark would conclude way back in 2020. Essentially, what Bateman told Indiewire at the time summarises everything he's said about the Byrde saga's resolution since then. In Bateman's words, “I know exactly where everything is going to finish.”
“When it came to the specifics leading up to it, I didn't really harp on him. In any case, I was intrigued in his response to the big question: Will they get away with it, or will they be forced to pay a fine and a lawsuit? Was it his intention to communicate to the audience about the ramifications of what the Byrdes did—or did not do—in the first place?
This weekend, take as much time as you need to unwind and unwind. Check back here on Monday for complete coverage of the Ozark series finale by Esquire.
Ozark Season 5 Release Date
No, there will not be an Ozark Season 5. Take advantage of the final seven episodes and enjoy them while you can. This is probably the last time you'll see the Byrdes.
Ozark Season 4 Final Season But Why?
I'm sure it is. The fourth and final season of Ozark will premiere in June of 2021. There were 14 episodes instead of Ozark's usual 10 in that season, making it larger than previous seasons. In addition, it was distributed in two lots. It premiered in January and in April this year, respectively.
The Byrdes narrative deserved more time on Netflix, and we're glad they gave it to Ozark. Chris Mundy, the program's executive producer, said at the time of the announcement that he and the rest of the cast and crew were “thrilled” to be able to bring the show to a close in the best possible way.
Ozark is a thrilling thriller that has captured people around the world and received enormous critical praise,” Netflix's Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland said. Thank you to the entire cast and crew for their tireless dedication to the programme and we can't wait to see the Byrdes' adventure come to a finish,” says Chris Mundy.
We don't know the solution to this question. In interviews, however, it appears that giving Ozark a definitive ending was a creative choice made by Bateman.
At some point in the future, Bateman told Collider magazine, “I believe there's always been the presumed area [of] three years, four years, five years, something like that.” It has a particular ring because of the way the story is pitched and how quickly the stakes are raised and the storyline thickens. Continue on that pitch for much longer, and you'll either fall down the cliff or fly past the mountain's summit, ending up in the ocean. As a result, Marty Byrde and Wendy Byrde [Linney] will either be killed or placed in jail if they continue this campaign any further. In order to avoid going overboard, you could flatten your pitch, but then you'd be stuck waiting for more episodes and seasons.”
Is There Any Spin Offs of Ozark Drama?
There are currently no plans for any Ozark spinoffs to be developed. But by now, you should be familiar with how Netflix works. Ozark has proven to be far too popular for Netflix to ignore it completely.
In addition, the streaming behemoth has now produced a number of projects starring Jason Bateman and Julia Garner (have you seen Arrested Development or Inventing Anna?). In light of the way Netflix has handled previous hits such as Narcos, Money Heist, and The Witcher, it appears quite likely that we will see some form of spinoff in our streaming futures. At the very least, we should expect to see more work from Chris Mundy, Bill Dubuque, and Mark Williams in the near future.
