A dark cloud hangs over the latest season of Netflix‘s Ozark. Part one of Ozark season four, which premieres January 21, launches right into the action, taking up where season three left off after a brief and grim flash forward to what’s to come.
One of the pleasures of Ozark is watching the stakes rise from season to season. The story of a white-collar criminal moving his family to the Ozarks to start fresh when he angers the wrong people has grown and shifted over the years. Left with a huge amount of debt to his former employer, accountant Marty Byrde begins money laundering in his new home to make good. The Byrdes all eventually get more actively involved in the family business, making tons of money and some enemies along the way, all while acclimating to their new home.
The new season manages to keep the pressure on, with a palpable sense that things are coming to a head. Netflix hasn’t yet announced when part two of Ozark season four will drop, but part one has left us plenty of questions that need answers. Netflix shared the latest season of Ozark with Android Authority ahead of its premiere. Below is our review and a glimpse of what to expect.

What is Ozark season 4 about?
The new season opens with the Byrde family driving, cryptically discussing an upcoming move and meeting with the FBI, when they suddenly swerve off the road in a massive accident. Will they survive? Are they finally about to leave their life of crime behind them? We don’t know, because we jump right back from there to Marty and Wendy in Mexico, where we last saw them.
