The Premise of the Ozark Series
The story revolves around the financial advisor Martin Byrde who launders money for the Mexican drug cartel. Due to a money-laundering scheme gone wrong, Martin Byrde had to suddenly relocate himself and his family from Chicago to a summer resort community in the Ozarks in Missouri.
To payback, the debt to the Mexican drug cartel Martin sets up a bigger money laundering operation in the Lakes of Ozark which is located in central Missouri. The series shows the various run-in the Byrdes have with the local criminals and other hurdles while they are laundering money by investing in the businesses in Missouri.
The Release of Season 4
The show whose first season was aired in July 2017 became an instant success amongst the viewers. Jason Bateman, along with acting in this series, he is also an executive producer and director for this show. Season 3 was released in March 2020, and the last episode did show some sign for the continuation of the series for another series. As the previous season was released in March 2020, it is a little early to announce the confirmation of the next season.
Although there has been no official announcement from the creators of the show, if Netflix decides to discontinue such a popular show, then they will be making a mistake. If one sees the release dates of all the three-season doesn’t follow any pattern there was a gap of 18 months between season two and season three; fans are speculating the same with the release of season 4. Unless the official announcement is not made, people have to play the waiting game.
