Fans of Netflix's iconic series, Ozark, will no doubt be loving today (April 29) as the final seven episodes of the last season are released.
The first half of season four was left on an epic cliff-hanger and fans have been anxiously waiting to see how the series will end.

Season four will conclude the hugely popular crime-drama show, which has taken the world by storm since premiering on the streaming service back in mid-2017.
The Jason Bateman-led series has even managed to pick up a few Golden Globe and Emmy Awards on the way, while receiving both commercial and critical praise from fans everywhere.
These last episodes are a doozy, as reviewers who were privy to early screenings of the show's final moments have been raving about each instalment.
Earlier this month, The Independent wrote: “Perhaps, in years to come, Ozark will be looked back on without reference to Breaking Bad, but not just yet.
"If Marty and Ruth feel like Walter and Jesse, then they too are deserving of a blaze of glory in which to go out.
“The result is an ending that’s unbearably tense, obliquely poignant, and some of the best event TV we’ve seen on any streaming service.”
Indiewire also said the show’s ending will ‘click’ everything in place for fans and will address many unanswered questions.
They wrote: “Whether you’ve been hooked since that first scene or grew weary during the bleak ensuing seasons, Ozark remains true to itself as it comes to a close.
“Even if you see the Byrdes’ felonious odyssey as a metaphor for the perils and pitfalls of a long-term marriage, raising children, and/or preserving the American ideal of family, the conclusion should click cleanly into place.”
Showrunner Chris Mundy revealed to TVLine earlier this year that the last seven episodes would ‘pick up’ during (spoiler alert) Ruth's warpath following the brutal murder of her cousin Wyatt. “
“We pick up right away,” he said. “We would be cheating everybody if we jumped past the emotional place we were in [at the end of Episode 7].
"There’s a feeling on our show all the time where anything can happen at anytime, and I like that unease.”
Mundy added: “We felt like people [watching the Season 4 premiere] might be confused for a split second, but then when the [action cuts immediately] to Mexico they’d realise [it was a flash-forward]. But we didn’t want to do any more of the math for them.”
My god, we can’t wait!!!
