Netflix has dropped a trailer for Ozark series four part one. Watch it here:

The drama is set to return to the streaming platform on 21 January 2022 for its final season. The series will be split into two parts, each comprised of seven episodes.

Since it first hit our screens in 2017, Ozark has been a huge success.

It follows a middle class family who get mixed up with a major criminal organisation - that old chestnut.

Created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams, the crime thriller sees Jason Bateman stars as Chicago financial adviser Martin 'Marty' Byrde, who is forced to launder money for a Mexican drug cartel.

After the scheme backfires, Marty and his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) relocate to Missouri, where Marty sets up a bigger money laundering operation in the Ozarks - a mountainous region covering the southern half of the state.

The third and most recent season focused on Marty and Wendy's marriage, with executive producer Chris Mundy telling IndieWire: "The third season to us is [about] what keeps you safe and whether or not hiding keeps you safe or attacking keeps you safe.

"In other seasons - between Season 1 and Season 2, certainly - we sort of left with a whole lot of plot we needed to answer, and we intentionally didn't leave ourselves with a whole lot of plot to answer for in Season 3.

"So it's more emotional within; we write everything through the marriage. So for us, it's all about that marriage."

Many fans of the show were sad to hear that this would be the last instalment, but star Bateman said there is effectively two seasons left (or just shy of one-and-a-half, to be precise).

He said: "A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes. I'm excited to end with a bang(s)."

He added: "We're going to do 14 episodes instead of 10, and we're going to split them up in two.

"So it'll be seven and seven. So it really will be like season four and season five, but they're shorter."

Speaking prior to the announcement of the final season back in 2019, producer Mundy said they'd originally planned to make five seasons.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "We've always talked about it as five seasons. It could be four, it could be seven ... but that always seemed like a good number to us."

He added: "We're building little things in, if we keep on track for the emotional ending we're guessing we'll have.

"There's people that are in bigger chairs than mine who make those decisions."
