“Ozark” was one of the most captivating shows that have occupied Netflix as an original program, and not without an above-average wait between seasons, like many other shows affected by COVID. “Ozark” was a surprisingly dark and rarely humorous drama on Netflix that starred Jason Bateman as Marty Byrd, a husband and father with a sick, intelligent, and unique skillset that gets him “hired” by some illegal groups that upend his family’s life in a snap, up until the very end of “Ozark.” Overall, “Ozark” gave us insight into the dark happenings of an area of America that has been a wealthy vacation spot. As “Ozark” grew darker over time, viewers became more comfortable with the town of Ozark. These surrounding lakes make up the entire area, and, more importantly, the Byrd family and their acquaintances. However, as both parts of Season 4 have premiered, fans are eager for more and can’t help but ask if “Ozark” Season 4 was the end after its most reason season on Netflix.

“Ozark”

“Ozark” began with the Byrd family and their move to the area from Chicago, where Marty began his life as a money launderer for the mob. The show’s first three seasons explored the darkness of such affiliations, while the 4th season of Ozark was much darker regarding consequences and realizations for the Byrd family. Although fans were heartbroken by the news of the end of “Ozark,” the actual end of “Ozark” was even more heartbreaking. The first season of “Ozark” helped viewers get used to the previous situation that the Byrds were in before their move to the Ozarks and what lay ahead. As “Ozark” progressed with Season 2, rebellion from the younger family members and Marty’s apprentice Ruth started to show as they discovered the proper manner in which Marty and Wendy Byrd were involved. “Ozark” shared a majority of its darkness introduced in Season 1 into Season 2 but explored more of the female characters and showcased that each character has their own darkness to hide that helped shape the path they are currently on. As the characters became entirely aware of their surroundings and how Marty operated his shady business, the consequences of what could unfold with a slipup or without one became more evident. Season 3 of “Ozark” was much more life-threatening regarding how deep the Byrds had indeed become regarding their mob affiliations. Season 3 was the beginning of Ruth’s full rebellion against Marty and doing what she wanted, but once we got to Season 4, the darkest of times for the Byrds. However, even with the dark and heavy ending that “Ozark” Season 4 laid upon viewers, fans have still been hoping for more from the Byrd family and company.

“Ozark” Season 4

“Ozark” Season 4 was undoubtedly the most end-worthy of the four, especially as Season 4 was broken up into two parts to build dynamic and suspense. Still, nothing could have prepared viewers or fans for the final ending of “Ozark.” Viewers grew beyond comfortable with the growing Byrd family and their fight for survival against the cartel they got involved in, in and out of America. Part 1 of Season 4 was a bit of a disappointment as it killed the suspense in a sense by letting viewers be aware that regardless of what happened in Part 1, Part 2 would likely save whoever from whatever Part 1 left viewers with. However, Part 1 was more of a profoundly suspenseful collection of episodes leading to a known conclusion with Part 2. Still, the ultimate ending of Ruth’s significant attitude and the road to revenge was her demise and fall. Ultimately, without spoiling the end of “Ozark,” Part 1 left viewers hanging with promises of FBI meetings, overthrowing cartel bosses, and legal and illegal revenge. Still, no amount of Part 1 promises could have prepared viewers for the end of “Ozark.” “Ozark” officially ended with the end of Part 2 of “Ozark” Season 4 and was even cemented by the release of “A Farewell to Ozark,” along with Part 2 when it was added to the platform.

“A Farewell to Ozark” – The Official End of “Ozark”

As stated above, the end of “Ozark” may not be what fans wanted after the dark, but a promising ending for the future of the Byrd family in some form or another as they survived. As much as fans wanted more from “Ozark,” the end was known to be coming, and if anything, Part 1 and Part 2 were to prepare fans for the worst. Overall, “A Farewell to Ozark” was a deep dive into the characters and settings with the cast and crew and Jason Bateman talking about taking the director’s helm throughout the show. Interestingly, Jason Bateman only agreed to do “Ozark” if he could direct throughout the run of “Ozark,” which certainly paid off, as shown by the success of the show and its numerous Emmy nominations and some wins.
