The final run of Netflix crime drama Ozark will be split into two parts for its fourth and final season.

The Hollywood Reporter says that the streaming site has commissioned 14 episodes for season four, which will be split into two equal parts as the Byrde family's journey from family life in Chicago to criminal kingpins in the Ozarks comes to an end.

However, broadcast dates for the final season have not yet been announced as production has been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

"We're so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes' saga right," said showrunner and executive producer Chris Mundy. 

"It's been such a great adventure for all of us - both on screen and off - so we're thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible."

Jason Bateman, who is executive producer and star of the show, added, "A super-sized season means super-sized problems for the Byrdes. I'm excited to end with a bang(s)."

Ozark won two Emmys in 2019 for Bateman's direction and Julia Garner's supporting performance and has racked up 14 nominations to date. 

Series regulars Bateman, Laura Linney, Garner, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan and Lisa Emery will be back for the final season.
