According to Jason Bateman, it takes around 11 days to shoot each episode with two weeks of time beforehand to prepare for it. So it will mean that there will be around six months to film an entire season when we are talking about the Ozark series. When the Collider asked Bateman if the series can go for additional back to back seasons to conclude the story, Jason Bateman answers the following;
“I kind of leave all those smart and complicated conversations up to those who can manage them. My fastball, if I’ve got one, is more on the set. So, I’ll leave it up to Chris and MRC, and Netflix to figure out what the life of the show is and what shape it will take.”
Chris Mundy (the showrunner for Ozark) says the following when Collider asked him;
“Well, if we’re lucky enough to get a season 4, I think it will be about whether or not Ruth really can create something of her own that she wants and is sustainable, or if she wants something else.
And I think it will be about if the Byrdes can they turn the biggest mistake of their lives into this huge advantage, and how much will karma catch up with them if they do?”

It is indeed not an easy task to predict when the fourth season will be available on Netflix. But our best bet is on the Q2-Q4 2021 release for the first part of Season 4. While we can possibly be watching the second part of the fourth season in 2022.
You need to know that we did manage to get some intel from IndieWire in August 2020. The word is that the filming of the upcoming season will be scheduled to begin again from 9th November onwards.

What Are The Ozark Season 4 Expectations?
First of all, you must not read any further if you do not have watched the third season yet. It may be possible that you may not control yourself but read the major spoilers of Ozark Season 3.
It is sure that the third season was a real explosive for all the fans and viewers. The previous season indeed has left the fans with a number of loose ends to tie up again in the upcoming season of Ozark.
There is plenty to contemplate for the fourth and final season of Ozark. But you will get glimpses of what the next part of the series is going to bring along to serve its audience and fans.
Whenever you are thinking of the third season of Ozark, the first thing that you may think about is the death of Ben. It seems like Ben’s death breaks the back of the camel of Ruth Langmore and her loyalty which happens to be for the Byrde family.
Ruth Langmore did decide to choose to distance herself and quit from the Byrde family. It is just like her cousin Wyat but Ruth did manage to join Darlene at the Snell Poppy farm.
Darlene, as you may know, has offered a great position to Ruth that involves running the daily production, keep tabs on heroin manufactured, and it gets distributed to the Kansas city properly.
If we look at it now then choosing to switch up loyalty has proven to be an easy decision for Ruth. She knows that Darlene has shown more love and care to her family in a few months than the Byrde family has shown in years.
It is sure that there has been a lot for Ruth to prove, especially to herself. But she focuses on proving to the Byrdes family that she does not happen to be the person that the family should be terrified of.
Recently, Julia Garner did manage to tease in an interview about the fourth season, saying, “she [Ruth] wants that independence back that she had before the Byrdes came in.”
It seems like Darlene’s actions are not likely to reap any repercussions against Frank Jr. It is due to the only fact that she did manage to negotiate a multi-million dollar deal to the KC Mob with Frank Sr. Of course, you can expect that the love between the KC Mob and Byrdes family is still there.
But it is without the Mob to move the drug cartel cash. Now, Darlene is in the league with the team and it is sure that there will be more fireworks in the fourth season. The Ozark Season 4 will be more interesting and thrilling than ever before.
The Impact of Ben’s Death
As soon as the third season starts, you will understand that Ben is the wildcard that was foreshadowed by Agent Evans. While you must know that the presence of Ben was felt from the beginning to finish. Despite Ben happens to be resting in peace, his presence will be felt in the fourth season too.

It is sure that all the viewers have noticed that Ben was the one with the most human reaction when he knows about his family’s ongoing business. He happens to be suffering from his mental illness but still, he was strong after knowing about the business of his family with the Navarro Cartel.
As a result of the disgust and naivety of her family’s situation, Wendy who happens to be Ben’s sister gives up the whereabouts. So that Helen’s hired hitman can dispose of him.
Wendy, as you all know did become a cold, calculated, and dangerous woman. But it is sure that her decision to let Ben go in the arms of death will be the one to break her. She may find herself in a dark rabbit hole from which she will not find any escape.
Jonah on the other side has experienced a lot more trauma than most adults will have. You need to know that the death of his uncle had push Jonah to the edge. We have seen that Jonah did almost murder, Helen, in revenge but he stopped when he learned about his mother.
He learned that his mother Wendy led Helena to Ben and therefore Wendy is the reason for Ben’s death. Jonah leaves a hole in the living room window with a shotgun. But we can expect him to be more aggressive and violent in the upcoming season.
The next part of the series will serve the fans with how Jonah will confront his own mother, Wendy for Ben’s death.
Charlotte was not so close to her uncle but she too is reeling in from Ben’s death. Now, she will have to decide whether she is going to take the side of her brother with whom she is close or her parents.
She did decide earlier to emancipate but then changes her plan and stays with her family. But now is a perfect time if she wants to leave her family. Season 4 definitely has tons of surprises waiting to burst out as soon as it will release on Netflix.

The couple, Marty and Wendy did manage to show that they are a more valuable asset than Helen can ever be. Also, the drug lord makes sure that the couple watches Helen die right before their eyes.
You must know that Helen has had quite remarkable power, connection, and influence within Navarro Cartel. But now that she is out of the picture and dead, it will be possible that all her power and connection will be owned by Marty and Wendy to serve the plans of the drug lord.
There will be so many moments that will come in the next season when Wendy will have to take hard decisions.
Helen, as you all know does not have any effect from her decisions leading to the death of innocent people. However, Wendy has experienced the same ruthlessness as Helen has taken the life of her son, Ben. It is sure that Ben’s death weighs heavily on her due to which she may not carry out tasks like Helen.
