Ozark Season 4 starts production this November in Georgia.

Jason Bateman, the leading actor, producer, and director of the Netflix series says filming for Ozark season 4 will start on November 9, 2020, in Georgia.

Ozark’s final season will split into two, seven-episode parts. Netflix typically does not like to have astronomical seasons. Lately, most Netflix shows end around 10-episodes for every new season.

Season 4 announcement is excellent news for Atlanta, Georgia actors, crew members, and fans of the shows as we were worried production would not get started until next year, which would mean the show would not release until 2022.

Bateman explained the risks with production and how fickle the situation can be, especially considering how the Coronavirus is spreading across the country. Due to the precautions, Bateman says he will not be directing any episodes of the final season since it would require him to interact with too many members of the crew. Also, if he or any of the actors were to get sick, they would have to shut down production.

Season 4 will feature two separate seven-episode runs, for a total of 14, and “mark the final chapter in the Byrde family’s journey from suburban Chicago life to their criminal enterprise in the Ozarks,” according to Netflix.

“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving ‘Ozark’ more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” ‘Ozark’ Chris Mundy said Tuesday 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.”

“A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes,” Jason Bateman said. “I’m excited to end with a bang(s).”

“‘Ozark’ is a gripping drama that has captivated audiences all around the world and garnered tremendous critical acclaim,” Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, added. “We’re so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia, and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and can’t wait to see how the Byrdes’ journey comes to a close.”

“Ozark” has received 14 Emmy nominations, with two wins. Jason Bateman won for directing and Garner for supporting actress. The series has also received two Golden Globe nominations and six Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nominations.
