It’s been nearly two months since audiences got their first taste of footage from the upcoming fourth and final season of Netflix’s “Ozark.” We don’t get much in the new, 51-second teaser trailer, short of a massive car accident — shown in reverse and slow motion — with Jason Bateman’s Marty narrating about how decisions are made and people have to live with them.

The last we saw Marty and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney), they were collared in the less-than-warm embrace of Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), the violent, manipulative cartel kingpin who’s been forcing the married couple to launder unimaginable amounts of drug money in central Missouri.

Included with the teaser was a recap of all three previous seasons of the show, which audiences might need since the last season premiered way back in March of 2020. In June of that year, Netflix announced “Ozark’s” renewal and that Season 4 would mark its end. The final season did earn an expansion, though, bringing its episode total to 14. Seven episodes will be released in the first part, leaving seven more for the second.

The show has become a critical and awards darling over its lifetime, earning several nominations from the Producers Guild of America, the Writers Guild, and the Screen Actors Guild, to name a few. The question of where the Byrdes are going to end up remains a big one for fans and its one Bateman himself knows the answer to.

“I do know where everything is going to end,” Bateman said in a previous interview with IndieWire. “The specifics leading up to it, I didn’t really grind him on. But I was interested in the big question he has the opportunity to answer: Are they going to get away with it, or are they going to pay a bill? What does he want to message to the audience about the consequences of what the Byrdes have done — or lack thereof?”

“We had some great conversations about that, and he’s got really good ideas about that,” Bateman said. “Specifically, what kind of happens at the end of the last episode: I know, and it’s great.”

Season 4 of “Ozark” streams on Netflix January 21, 2022.
