Ozark season 4, Netflix crime drama Ozark returned for its highly-anticipated third season with a bang, the Byrde family once again pushed to their limits on more than one occasion.
Marty was abducted and tortured by the drug kingpin himself, Omar Navarro, who isn’t done with his star accountant and Wendy just yet. Meanwhile, the Byrde matriarch was forced to do the unthinkable and order a hit on her own brother Ben to save their family from being slaughtered by the cartel. Netflix has confirmed that the series will return from a month 14-episode season, which will be split into two parts.
Ozark season 4 cast – Who’s in it?
In typical Ozark fashion, we lost some people in season three. The most notable deaths were Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer), Navarro’s representative, who was shot dead in front of Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) by Nelson, and Ben Davis (Tom Pelphrey), Wendy’s brother, who was also killed by Nelson after Wendy gave the nod.
Another shout out must go to Marty and Wendy’s therapist Sue (Marylouise Burke), who was also murdered by… wait for it… Nelson on Helen’s orders. It’s safe to say that we won’t be seeing any of them again.
Charles Wilkes (Darren Goldstein), who played a significantly more central role in season two, popped up briefly – so there’s room for him to return alongside his right-hand man Jim (Damian Young). As for Helen’s daughter Erin (Madison Thompson), it feels like we’ve seen the last of her now that her mum is dead.
Ozark season 4 release date
The air dates for Ozark have been somewhat erratic. Season one arrived back in July 2017, with season two dropping the following year in August. But then fans had to wait more than a year and a half for season three, which arrived on March 27, 2020. This, we’d assume, was down to Jason Bateman’s busy schedule. Not only did he appear in HBO horror crime drama The Outsider, but he also played a key role in getting it to screen and directed the first two episodes.
Ozark season 4 plot and spoilers
Chatting to indiewire Laura Linney revealed that unlike lots of other show bosses, Mundy is happy to share big details with his cast before shooting starts.
“There’s a cultural thing on television not to give out information to actors…[maybe] they’re afraid an actor might have a comment about it or want them to write it differently. But it never makes any sense to me when you don’t give the actors as much information as you can give them, so they can go do their job and craft their work accordingly.”
“And the second is that, at least in Navarro’s mind, their claim that they have the FBI on their side and can swing the power of the US government in the intervention in the drug war against their rivals, that’s something virtually no one else can do, and that essentially tipped the scales for Marty and Wendy.”

Trailers usually arrive in the month leading up to the premiere, so once we know that we’ll have a better idea.
