Self isolation might feel boring, but one thing that certainly isn't is Netflix. The streaming service has graced viewers with everything from The Tiger King to Ozark while we're quarantining at home, with the latter leaving fans wondering whether there's the potential for a fourth series anytime soon. Well, good news Ozark fans: Netflix has finally confirmed that a new series has been commissioned. Not so good news, Ozark fans: Netflix has also confirmed it will be the final season in the series.
Here's everything else you need to know about the fourth series of Netflix's Ozark, from possible release date to potential story lines.
Has Ozark season 4 been confirmed?
Netflix has now confirmed that Marty and Wendy Byrde will be back for a fourth season, and that it will mark the final season in the series. Season four will be split across two parts, with seven episodes in each part.
"We’re so happy Netflix recognised the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right," showrunner Chris Mundy said. "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."

Mundy previously said that Ozark should run for five seasons, so some fans are understandably disappointed they've decided to end it after season four. "We’ve always talked about it as five seasons," he previously said during a panel discussion with the Hollywood Reporter. "It could be four, it could be seven… but that always seemed like a good number to us."
And although he didn’t yet have a specific overall ending in mind, he explained: “We’re building little things in, if we keep on track for the emotional ending we’re guessing we’ll have.”
When will Ozark season 4 be released?
It's still too early to tell but we imagine it will be mid to late 2021 - and that's before you consider the current hold ups with TV production due to coronavirus.
Season one came out in July 2017, followed by season two in August 2018. Season three wasn't launched until March 2020, so assuming season 4 takes the same amount of time, it's looking like late next year. Well, that's something to look forward to, eh?
Is there a trailer for Ozark season 4 yet?
Sadly there certainly isn't a trailer yet, but watch this space for more updates.
