New Ozark Season 4 Part 1 Trailer
Netflix released a new trailer on January 6. And in the new footage, we see Marty and Wendy trying to broker an immunity deal between Navarro and the FBI.
“So what’s this message from Mexico, so important you had to drag us all in here?” Darlene (Lisa Emery) inquires.
“The Navarro cartel has been made aware that you intend to start producing heroin again,” Marty reveals.”They have instructed us to warn you their response is going to be quick and it’s going to be brutal.”
Marty’s statement seems humorous to Darlene, who lets out a chuckle.
“We’re just the messengers here.” Wendy adds.
As the trailer progresses, scenes play out to a voice-over from the leader of the cartel, Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), who know also poses a threat to Marty and Wendy.
“You two are celebrities. You will use your influence. I will walk away from my business. I will be free of the threat of arrest or assassination and to move freely between the United States,” Omar states.
As we learn that Omar is looking to cut a deal with the FBI. We also learn that’s likely going to cost more than Omar is willing to give.
“Do this and you are free of your obligation to me,” Omar adds.

Ozark Season 4 Trailer Fan Response
The trailer sparked a conversation on Twitter as fans tweeted that this series was bringing on strong Breaking Bad vibes.
Is it reminiscent? Better? Can’t hold a candle to the AMC series that ran for 5 seasons and 62 total episodes? You be the judge.
Whatever your answer to that may be, one thing is for certain. Fans are pumped for the final season of Ozark.
Unanswered Fan Questions
So we have a lot of questions we’re hoping to get answers for in the new season. But above all, Ozark Season 4 will have to answer the ultimate question: Will the Byrdes family pay for their wrongs?
Was it all worth it? With all the heartache and danger they’ve crawled their way through, did the Byrdes ultimately build a life they’re happy with? Or was it all for nothing?
Chris Mundy, expands on this sentiment Bateman shared with their quote to Entertainment Weekly.
“I think it [Season 4] will be about whether or not Ruth really can create something of her own that she wants and is sustainable, or if she wants something else. And I think it will be about if the Byrdes can turn the biggest mistake of their lives into this huge advantage, and how much will karma catch up with them if they do?” Mundy commented.
Every character has big decisions to make and the ghosts of their pasts to contend with.
