That’s exactly what Jason Bateman did with Netflix’s Ozark and we’ll be able to watch him do that in one final season, which is going to be an absolute joy, albeit a dark joy that isn’t very joyous at all.
It’s bittersweet news, really. We all love Ozark so it’s nice to know there’s going to be another season, but it’s not even slightly nice to know that it’s going to be the final season.
I won’t ruin season 3 for you incase you haven’t seen it, but it ended with a big ol’ finale leaving us all wanting more, so I guess it’s not at all surprising that another season is coming but still; cool.
Extra good news is that season 4 will have four more episodes that usual, being 14 episodes long, but coming in out in two parts, presumably with some king of mid-season break. Netflix announced the news on Twitter, saying:
“They’re going to go out with a bang.
“Ozark will be back with an expanded 14-episode final season“.
Showrunner Chris Mundy told Deadline:
“We’re so happy Netflix recognised 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“.
Bateman then added:
“A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s)“.
There’s no news yet as to when we’ll get to watch this, but we’ll keep you updated.
