I live in the Ozarks, I got hooked on this series after several friends said you need to watch it. It reminds me a lot of the Sopranos back in the day, it’s phenomenally well done, and probably more accurate to real life than we really want to admit.
Now Netfix is about to end their most successful show, and the buzz on social media is, why?
Ozark has now had three monstrous successful seasons, so why end it now? I truly believe it has to do with the fact that it doesn’t fit the stereotype that the company wants to fulfill. You know, pandering to the masses of mindless sheep.
The following is from EW.com
Netflix announced Tuesday that the hit series, which became more popular than ever with the well-timed March release of season 3, has been renewed for a fourth and final season. But the Byrde family will hang around a little longer than usual, considering the concluding run will be expanded to 14 episodes (as opposed to the usual 10) and be split in two parts (seven and seven). The streamer didn’t reveal a premiere date for the new episodes.
“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” showrunner Chris Mundy said in a statement. “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.”
Added star-director-producer Jason Bateman: “A super sized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes. I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”
