Is Ozark season 4 the last season?

Unfortunately for fans of crime dramas, Ozark season 5 will not occur. It was announced in June 2020 that season 4 would be the final season of the show, and Netflix confirmed that they will be terminating the series at the end of season 4.

That means the seven episodes set to air on April 29 will be the final ones for Ozark, and hopefully, they’ll be fantastic. Though the show has garnered positive reviews from reviewers and has won several Emmy Awards, some episodes can be hit or miss.

Ozark season 4 part 1 is a tad boring in comparison to the finale, but episode 7 really ups the ante. It appears as though the Byrdes will not be able to escape this situation after all, but we will have to wait until season 4 part 2 is released to find out for certain.

While it is terrible that Ozark will conclude with season 4, they are not overstaying their welcome. We’re crossing our fingers that the series finale will be one we’ll never forget (and with good reason)! Return to Netflix Life for our comprehensive overview of season 4 part 2.

Ozark season 4 Finale: Recap

The final episode begins with Ruth covering the burial created at the construction site for the dead cartel member, Nelson, whom Rachel had killed the night before. She has a vision of Wyatt standing across from her, staring at her with a plain expression.

She keeps seeing Wyatt throughout the show, almost as a prophecy of what was to come, but it appears like seeing him calms her. Marty shows up at the building site and demands that Ruth assist him in bringing his children back, or he would have her killed by exposing to Camila that she was the one who killed Javi. Marty’s threat is so ironic.

Marty then meets Camila and shows her the financial accounts she now has access to. He also verifies that Omar’s move has been approved by the FBI.

He cautions her that if Omar is killed during the transfer, it will be “simply fate,” implying that he will be assassinated so she may have complete control of the cartel. Before the plan is put into action, Camila wants to speak with the FBI.

Ruth pays Wendy a visit to the mental institution. Wendy is told that she has no control over whether the children stay with her and that she must pledge that she will take care of the rest if she fulfils her part. Wendy assures her. Ruth admits that Ben would still be alive if she had left him in the mental institution.

So Ruth pays a visit to Wendy’s father, Nathan, and proposes that they have a drink together. The conversation swiftly shifts to Ruth and Ben’s relationship. Ruth informs Nathan that he defeated Wendy by obtaining Charlotte and Jonah – she is attempting to acclimate him.

She then goes on to ask Nathan what he’ll do if he discovers Charlotte is a mini-Wendy and Jonah is a mini-Marty. Ruth accuses Nathan of not giving a “f**king f**k” about the kids because he is nonchalant about it.

She doesn’t believe he actually cares about them. Ruth threatens Nathan with a revolver and insists that he inform Jonah and Charlotte that they will not be accompanying him. Charlotte and Jonah enter the room and witness the unfolding events.

As a result, Charlotte and Jonah pay a visit to their mother, Wendy, who is in a mental institution. Wendy confesses that what she’s doing is wrong; she admits that Ben died as a result of her actions and that she’s been attempting to control both of them.

She vows not to trap them and offers them the freedom to do whatever they desire. The kids decide to stay with their parents. Whether Wendy is telling the truth or not is beside the point; for the kids, having the freedom to think and act for themselves is probably all they’ve ever desired.

Wendy persuades her children, and they all drive back home together as a family, listening to lovely soul music and bringing the audience back to the scenario from the beginning of season 4. Wendy is relieved to see her children again, and she and Marty are speaking about how their plans are coming together.

Wendy informs her children that they have 48 hours until they must relocate to their new home. Marty suddenly loses concentration and almost collides with a lorry, causing the car to topple over to the side of the road.

street. Marty is the first to escape, followed by his children. Wendy, on the other hand, isn’t responding well at first; she’s breathing heavily and requires Marty to pull her out. Wendy regains her equilibrium, which brings relief to the entire family.
