Netflix’s Ozark Season 4: What We Want For Next Season

Are you caught up on the latest show to attempt the Breaking Bad formula, this time on Netflix? Let us know what you think about Ozark in the comments below.

Netflix has done it again, with yet another original drama we can’t help but binge. Ozark Season 3 arrived recently, and having wrapped up our watch of all ten episodes, we have some thoughts about the show’s future. Ozark Season 4 hasn’t yet been officially announced, but given that this seems like one of Netflix’s most popular shows, it feels inevitable.

Ozark follows the Byrde family, including Marty (Jason Bateman, who also executive produces the series and directs some episodes) and Wendy (Laura Linney), and their kids, Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner), on their quest to establish a profitable criminal enterprise in the Ozarks region of Missouri. It’s kind of like reverse Breaking Bad: Initially a modest criminal, Marty gradually changes his tune and begins trying to extricate his family from a complex crime web that involves Mexican cartels, the Kansas City mob, psychotic poppy farmers, and more.

Warning: Ozark Season 3 spoilers ahead.

Season 3 saw the Byrdes get in ever deeper with the cartel, with the FBI sniffing around daily at their riverboat casino. Ruth (Julia Garner) grew more disillusioned with the Byrdes before cutting ties entirely, while Darlene (Lisa Emery) somehow won Ruth’s loyalty and that of her cousins, Wyatt and Three. At the end of the season, Darlene and the Langmores struck a deal with the KC mob, Wendy turned her brother Ben (Tom Pelphrey) into the cartel to be killed, and the Byrdes witnessed Navarro murder Helen Pierce in front of their eyes.

It’s all great setup for Ozark Season 4, which, while not yet officially announced, will surely see the Byrdes “burrow right into the center” of Navarro’s operation, as Marty put it.

Here are some more things we want out of Ozark’s next season.
