Spoiler-Free Review of “Ozark” season 4 Part 1 on Netflix: Intense Game Changer

*This is a spoiler-free review for season 4 so feel free to read on!*

“This is why I chose you…”

Ozark season 4 (Part 1) released on Netflix on January 21st 2022 with seven episodes available to stream now. Part 2 of the final season will release later in the year. The crime drama series stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner and Felix Solis. Each episode runs for 55-60 minutes.

After that major cliffhanger at the end of season 3, the Byrde family is back to figure out another impossible task to keep their family alive. 

Here is the trailer:

Ozark season 4 (Part 1) brings us to the beginning of the end, as we hang on to our seats for a final season that doesn’t seem to be holding back any punches. Part 1 is beyond intense, but will the series end on a high note? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Solid screen time for all characters.

Even though the show primarily follows Marty Byrd and his family, there are a lot of supporting characters on the series who deserve more screen time and I thought that season 4 did a decent job of balancing this out. Marty’s kids got a lot more to do this time around and it’s always great to see Ruth on screen no matter what.

I think it’s important to provide each character with some kind of appropriate closure or end since we are on the final season and I think that so far it is delivering.

Another jaw-dropping finale.

There will be no spoilers in this review, but I don’t know how this show manages to shock me the way it does. The intensity that pours into this show is incredible. From the brilliant performances we witness to the music and everything in-between, this show just knows how to keep you completely hooked. The episodes are on the long side, but it never feels like it is dragging.

After that ending, I don’t know what to expect but I hope part 2 releases soon!

The Cons:

Will it stick the landing?

I don’t really have any cons because I think this show is as close to perfection as it gets, but I am wondering if we have enough time to give this show a proper ending. I loved plenty of shows over the years and some of the series finales I witnessed really disappointed me. I’m remaining positive here, but I have a lot of questions after part 1. We’ll see how it goes!

So am I in or out?

Brilliant performances and brutal intensity that lingers well after the show is over!

I loved every moment of season 4 (Part 1) and I can’t wait to find out how it all ends!
