Ozark is one of the best shows Netflix has ever made. With three Emmy Award wins and countless prestigious nominations, the series is critically acclaimed and extremely addicting. If you love crime dramas or gripping thrillers, you’d better check this one out. And even if this genre isn’t your go-to, I guarantee it’ll pull you in from the premiere episode.

Releasing on Netflix back in 2017 with its first season, Ozark stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and Julia Garner. Talk about a lineup! The dialogue and acting in the show are so fantastic they’ll have you on the edge of your seat each episode. It’s a must-see.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the plot, Ozark follows Marty and Wendy Byrde, played by Bateman and Linney respectively, husband and wife who must relocate their family to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri after a money-laundering deal goes bad. Now in debt to some very dangerous people, the Byrdes must work to move money around in a new location that’s awfully sketchy.

Cue Ruth Langmore’s introduction, played by Garner, a young woman local who begins working with the Byrdes. But she’s got baggage of her own and a family involved in crime, so this relationship is far from smooth.

Ozark season 4 premiered on Netflix in 2022. It was the final season of the series.
