“Ozark” Season 4 Teaser Reveals the Beginning of the End

The Byrde family is back, and things are even more complicated, and dangerous, than ever before. In a brand new teaser for season 4, we hear the voice of Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) contemplating the cascading consequences that branch off with every fresh decision we make. This is the man who plunged his family into the bloody nightmare that is now their lives, so he knows a thing or two about what one bad decision can do. In a clever and compelling twist, the teaser gives us the footage in reverse, painting a vivid portrait of how our fates, which can feel utterly mysterious, can become a lot clearer when we look back on all the decisions we made to arrive at this point. Marty is many things, but he’s always been fairly cleared-eyed about his culpability in his family’s precarious situation. He knows his decisions, and that of his wife Wendy (Laura Linney), have consequences. This being Ozark, those consequences have often been fatal.

Ozark is nearing the finish line, with season 4 marking the end of one of TV’s most relentlessly compelling and viscerally intense series of the last few years. Season 3 ended with a (spoiler alert!) major twist—the Byrde’s overseer on behalf of the Mexican cartel they work for in the Ozarks, Helen (Janet McTeer) was positioning herself to her boss as the obvious choice to take over Marty and Wendy’s operations. In a bid to have the family executed, Marty and Wendy outmaneuvered her, and the season ended with her execution, and Marty and Wendy covered in her blood. This is Ozark, bad things happen to bad people all the time.

The Mexican cartel leader, Navarro (Felix Solis) then embraces the Byrde’s, and it seems they’ve once again escaped death and will continue to be in his employ. Now we have the 4th and final season to see if Marty and Wendy to navigate these treacherous waters and keep themselves and their children alive. This being Ozark, there’s no guarantee for a happy ending, and considering what Marty and Wendy have already done to stay afloat, they will be haunted forever if they do make it out alive.

Check out the new teaser below. Ozark returns on January 21, 2022.
