Ozark has been a huge success since it arrived in 2017 but is there a release date for season 4? Netflix’s filming schedule might provide a clue.
With each new season, Netflix’s Ozark has gone from strength to strength.
In 2020, fans were treated to arguably the best instalment yet in season 3 and have been chomping at the bit to see what comes next.
Netflix renewed Ozark for season 4 in June 2020 but 12 months later, we’re yet to hear much about its forthcoming arrival.
But just when is Ozark season 4 expected to arrive on Netflix? Is there a release date?
Ozark season 4
After the gripping events of season 3, regarded as the show’s best season yet on Rotten Tomatoes, Ozark was renewed for its fourth and final season on June 30th, 2020.
The season 4 announcement also confirmed that the final instalment would feature extra episodes, consisting of 14 episodes (rather than 10) and that it would be released in two parts.
Ozark season 4 release date
- The release date for Ozark season 4 has not been revealed.
Unfortunately, no official release date for Ozark season 4 has been announced at the time of writing.
On top of that, the release dates for seasons 2 and 3, which arrived 13 and 18 months after their predecessors, don’t follow a particular pattern and so don’t offer up a hint at when we might expect season 4.
Saying that, Ozark’s filming schedules do provide a clue about when season 4 might arrive.
Ozark season 4’s filming schedule
According to IMDB, filming on both seasons 1 and 3 of Ozark lasted for five months; from August 2016 to February 2017 and May 2019 to October 2019 respectively.
Both of these seasons then released five-to-six months after they wrapped shooting, in July 2017 and March 2020.
Reports from IndieWire suggest that filming on Ozark season 4 began in November 2020, with Covid-19 protocols in place.
According to Variety Insight, filming on season 4 of Ozark is scheduled to continue until as late as October 31st, 2021.
If the upcoming instalment follows the same pattern of five months of post-production, then the first part of season 4 could, in theory, arrive in or around March 2022.
However, with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic causing filming delays around the world, and the increased number of episodes, there’s every chance season 4 of Ozark may arrive later still.
Seasons 1 to 3 of Ozark are available to stream now on Netflix while the wait for season 4 continues.
