New Ozark season 4 trailer promises no one gets out clean

Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) got what they wanted in Ozark season 3: They survived. However, some juicy new footage from the new “official” trailer for Ozark season 4 suggests that the Byrde family’s troubles are far from over.

Warning: Spoilers ahead! Marty and Wendy’s icy rival, the ruthless lawyer Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer), wanted them dead. But Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) decided to kill Helen and stick with the Byrdes. The trailer does shed some light on Omar’s choice. He believes that the Byrdes can help him negotiate a deal that will keep him out of prison and allow him to move to America. But that’s much easier said than done.

The new footage also indicates just how uncomfortable Marty and Wendy are with their new roles. Omar is seemingly so enamored with them that he is utilizing them as his messengers. That’s why their warnings to Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery), Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), and Wyatt Langmore (Charlie Tahan) elicit laughter from the criminals. They simply can’t take the Byrdes seriously as a threat. What they don’t understand is that Omar can make good on his threats even if the Byrdes can not.

Unfortunately for the Byrdes, their favored status with Omar may not last too long. As explained to Marty, Omar isn’t willing to give up enough to escape prosecution. And if that deal fails, the Byrdes may quickly find themselves on the run. More alarmingly, Marty and Wendy’s children, Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah Byrde (Skylar Gaertner), are pursuing their own criminal interests. Their actions may invite unwanted attention from both the cartel and law enforcement. It may also doom the family’s opportunity to escape from their criminal past and move on with their lives.

The final season also stars Charlie Tahan, Jessica Frances Dukes, Lisa Emery, Damian Young, John Bedford Lloyd, Joseph Sikora, Bruno Bichir, CC Castillo, Katrina Lenk, Bruce Davison, Ali Stroker, and Veronica Falcón.

Stranger Things 4 trailer teases dark times on the horizon
The cast of Stranger Things 4.

Are you familiar with the small town of Hawkins, Indiana, and its connection to the Upside Down? The new Stranger Things 4 trailer has arrived, and it's proving just how little we've truly learned in the first three seasons. The one thing we do know is that the evil from the Upside Down is not some abstract being. It has a voice, and it has a plan. And for the first time, we truly get to see what it looks like in an almost human form.

There's not a lot in the trailer that sheds light on specific plot points. But we do see Eleven approached by the same organization that once gave her powers. And the man has a warning that Eleven can't ignore. Humanity can't prevail against the Upside Down without her, and she doesn't have any powers left. Meanwhile in Hawkins, Max's graveside visit to her brother is both confession and revelation. But is Max being attacked by something, or has she come into her own powers?

Ruth is out for revenge in Ozark season 4, part 2 teaser
Julia Garner in Ozark.

For most of its critically acclaimed run, Netflix's Ozark has focused on Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) as they found themselves pulled deeper and deeper into the criminal underworld. But in the first look at Ozark's final episodes, Julia Garner's Ruth Langmore takes the spotlight away from the Byrde family. In the first part of Ozark season 4, Ruth vowed to get her revenge on would-be drug lord Javier "Javi" Elizondro (Alfonso Herrera). She may get what she wants, but there's no guarantee that she will make it out alive.

Netflix has dropped the first teaser trailer for Ozark season 4, part 2, which is narrated by Ruth, who shares her belief that her family is cursed. The Langmores are a criminal family, and Ruth doesn't pretend that they're innocent, or even that she is. Ruth has actively taken part in the family business. But after Javier murdered her cousin, Wyatt Langmore (Charlie Tahan), and her business partner, Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery), Ruth told the Byrdes that they would have to kill her to stop her from avenging her loss.

First trailer for Ozark season 4 opens a path of destruction
Laura Linney and Jason Bateman in Ozark.

Netflix drama Ozark began with Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) moving to the Lake of the Ozarks region in the hope that their money laundering scheme could finally get them out of trouble with a Mexican drug cartel. Since then, the Byrde family has found itself more deeply entrenched in the criminal underworld, but never more so than now, with their rival Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) out of the picture.

Marty and Wendy went above and beyond to prove their worth to Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), a Mexican cartel boss. Now that Navarro has literally embraced Marty and Wendy, there's no escape for the Byrde family as the series heads into its final season. Netflix has premiered the first trailer for Ozark season 4, which doesn't feature much in the way of new footage. Instead, it serves as a stark warning for the Byrdes: "No ending is reached by accident."
