Ozark is in the conversation as the best shows on Netflix. The series is wildly popular. It’s won awards, nearly as many as any Netflix original series ever. Obviously, fans want to know when Ozark season 4 is coming to Netflix.
Unfortunately, despite the third season arriving on Netflix at the end of March and new seasons of Netflix shows usually arriving a year apart, Ozark season 4 is not coming to Netflix this spring.
If we’re lucky, we’ll get to see Ozark season 4 on Netflix this year, but there’s a lot of interesting rumors, reports, and rumblings online about the new season of Ozark. We wanted to share the most up-to-date information about the release date with fans.
Ozark season 4 is the final season of the Netflix show, sadly, though it will be split into two parts. Each part will consist of seven episodes, bringing the season total to 14 episodes. That will make it the biggest season of the series so far.
Was Ozark canceled?
Contradictory to what you might find elsewhere online, Ozark wasn’t really canceled. It sounds like Netflix and the creative powers that be decided that a fourth season split into two parts was the best way to end the series.
Recently, the cast confirmed that they think it’s a good decision to end the show on a high note and while it’s still good.
Here’s what Deadline reported Felix Solis said during a recent Ozark panel for the SAG Awards:
“All good things must come to an end. This was a good job that must come to an end,” said Solis, who appears as Omar Navarro. “We don’t want to wait until it’s not good for it end.”
So, no, Ozark wasn’t really canceled. It’s just coming to an end, and I think that makes all the difference.
Ozark season 4 release date
For a long time, we’ve been assuming Ozark season 4 release date on Netflix would be in the fall of 2021. Production on the final season started in November 2020. It sounds like production has been going on since then. If you follow along on Twitter, you can see where fans are sharing the location of filming down in Georgia.
In a perfect world, we’d see the first half of Ozark season 4 on Netflix later this year, followed by the second half sometime in the spring of 2022. Is that going to happen? To be determined!
Netflix shared a list of titles coming later this year with shareholders, and unfortunately, Ozark season 4 was not on that list. That might be cause for concern, but I think Netflix might have withheld Ozark simply because the show is still filming. Because it’s such a big production, Netflix wouldn’t want to announce it’s coming later this year when it’s going to come down to a matter of weeks if that’s possible.
If there are any delays because of the pandemic or other, we might not see new episodes until 2022.
With that said, it sounds like everyone is optimistic that the first half of the season will be released this year. During a February screening and interview with Deadline, Chris Mundy, the showrunner, and Bateman commented on the release date.
Here’s what Bateman said according to Showbiz Cheat Sheet:
“This sort of this race, the whole world is in between vaccinations and these variants. I mean, basically, it’s going to get to us a whole lot quicker now that Joe Biden’s got his hand on the wheel. It would have would have taken longer with the last administration, so I think we’re gonna get it to TV sooner thanks to Uncle Joe.”
As far as we know, filming has continued in Georgia. There has been no news about any production stoppages, so that’s a good sign.
We know, because of other Netflix productions in Georgia like Stranger Things, things are taking longer than usual. Assuming season 4 filming is going smoothly, there’s definitely enough time left this year to get the first half of season 4 out.
Unfortunately, even if part 1 is released in 2021, we likely won’t see part 2 until 2022.
In summary, we’re still expecting Ozark season 4 to be released on Netflix in late 2021, likely October, November or December. The final episodes, however, will arrive in 2022.
If there delays, Ozark season 4 likely won’t premiere until 2022.
