Were so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes saga right. Its been such a great adventure for all of us, both on screen and off, so were thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible.
Ozark is a gripping drama that has captivated audiences all around the world and garnered tremendous critical acclaim, said Cindy Holland, Netflixs vice president of original content. Were so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia, and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and cant wait to see how the Byrdes journey comes to a close.
