Netflix’s TUDUM event brought a lot of surprises for fans. We got to look at some exciting teasers and trailers, one of which was Ozark’s season 4 teaser. This was big because season 4 marks the final season of the very thrilling Netflix series. With so much on the line for the main couple Marty and Wendy Byrde, fans are dying to know what will happen with the Byrde family.

The bloody teaser didn’t reveal much
There is also a clip showing Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) cradling his baby while roaming around in what appears to be a a grand party. Perhaps, it’s a birthday party for his child. Then we see a bloody Marty and Wendy Byrde still shocked and stunned, struggling to clean the blood off their faces and hair. They’re standing inside the bathroom of Navarro’s house as we can hear faded music in the background. Then the camera backs away and Marty and Wendy peek over to look at someone that has come to get them.
What happened in Ozark Season 3
Well, a lot!
Wendy’s brother, Ben, was killed by Navarro’s team. The whereabouts of Ben were revealed by Wendy who is still in shock at what she made herself do. Moreover, their son Jonah discovered what happened as well as Ruth Langmore (their partner-in-crime and Ben’s girlfriend).
The finale was also pretty shocking for everyone. Helen Pierce (Navarro’s trusted lawyer) was killed by Omar Navarro, meaning that Marty and Wendy are now the second-in-command for Navarro’s money laundering scheme. There is no middle man anymore.
This essentially makes Marty and Wendy the middle man, and they cannot escape Navarro’s criminal empire anymore, like they were planning to initially. This raises the stakes up substantially for the Byrdes who are losing all options of returning to their normal lives.
Ozark has a massive fan base that is hoping for a satisfying conclusion to the story. There is mixed reaction on what they want for the Byrdes. On one hand, they don’t want the family to be in danger and living in fear the rest of their lives. After all, they were entrapped in this difficult position after a series of events that they had no control over.
On the other hand, the Byrdes made some questionable decisions (murdering Wendy’s own brother Ben, and an innocent priest who was just grieving the death of his wife). They also don’t do right by Ruth (Julia Garner), often putting the needs of their own children before her.
Ozark season 4 is set to arrive next year in 2022. There will be 14 episodes in total and the final season will be released in two parts. Are you excited or…scared? Or maybe both?! Please let us know in the comments down below.
