In anticipation of the fourth and final season of Ozark, which is set to launch on Netflix in 2020, fans have been keeping tabs on any fresh information about the show’s development or air date. There is still no word on the latter, although filming of the popular crime series is nearing its end. The Lake of the Ozarks will have to wait until 2022 for our next visit, as production is expected to wrap up in October of 2021, according to Looper.
We’ve put together a list of shows that are similar to Ozark, from Breaking Bad to Bloodline, to keep us entertained while we wait. You’ll find 13 selections to watch on Netflix, Hulu, and more in the next section.
