Season 4 of the Emmy-winning series, Ozark dropped on Netflix on January 21. The 7 episodes have received a lot of praise for keeping the tense moments within the drama alive. However, due to the delay, fans are anxious to know whether Ozark season 4 part 2 has been cancelled or not.
Fans can rest assured that the Ozark season 4 part has not been canceled. It was previously announced that Netflix ordered a longer season for the fourth and final season of Ozark. The series would have a total of 14 episodes. The streamer dropped the first part consisting of 7 episodes and the second part is yet to arrive. No official confirmation regarding when the second part will be released has been received yet. On Jimmy Kimmel’s show, Jason Bateman announced that the Byrdes will be arriving “kinda soon”. The series had wrapped filming in October 2020, with only the pre-production left. It is speculated the second installment of episodes of the white-collar crime drama might drop later this year.
What can you expect from Ozark season 4 part 2?
The last we saw of the Byrdes, Marty wanted out of the money laundering business but Wendy had become too ambitious to let go of their empire. One of the closest associates of the Byrde Family, Ruth chose to side with Darlene Snell after she loses her lover, Ben (Wendy’s brother), and Wyatt, her cousin. Hurt and lied to more than once, Ruth is hell-bent on getting vengeance. She is the only thorn in the Byrdes’ way to a life away from the mob and the cartel business.
Will there be a season 5?
Ozark will be ending with season 4. With only 7 episodes left to arrive, fans will have to say goodbye to the Byrdes after that. The showrunner, Chris Mundy, has made it clear that there will be no season 5. This was a mutual decision between the makers and Netflix. The streaming giant had initially greenlighted only 10 episodes, but after some negotiation, and keeping fans’ best interest at heart, Netflix agreed to produce 14 episodes instead.
Stretching out the series would make it repetitive. Splitting the show into two parts would allow for more substantial storytelling.
