Netflix announced today that Ozark has been picked up for a fourth and final season. The news, which comes three months after the release of Season 3, will see the crime drama return next year for one last run of 14 episodes - its longest yet - to properly conclude the story.

The series has been a solid success for the streaming service since its premiere in 2017. Every season has garnered critical acclaim, with each outdoing the last, and it took home two Emmy awards last year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress and Outstanding Directing categories.

Executive produced by and starring Bateman, Ozark follows a financial adviser whose side job as a money launderer for the criminal underworld forces him to move his family from Chicago to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks. There, he's tasked with laundering $500 million over the next five years for the second largest drug cartel in Mexico.

Look for Season 4 of Ozark in 2021. The supersized length of 14 episodes will see it split into two parts of seven episodes each.
