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.

Roll for initiative in Stranger Things 4’s final trailer
The cast of Stranger Things.

It's been far too long since we've checked in with the kids of Stranger Things. But this week, the wait will come to an end with the premiere of Stranger Things 4. In the final trailer for the new season, almost all of the familiar characters are back. But perhaps the most stunning development is that some of the teens may be going into the Upside Down itself.

But first, Dustin and the gang have become the Hellfire Club, a new Dungeons and Dragons group, and they're playing on a much bigger stage than before. Meanwhile, Lucas is finding athletic success on the basketball court, and something very strange is happening to Max. And when we say "strange," we mean it's bizarre even by Hawkins' standards!

Wendy Byrde was the real villain in Ozark, and here’s why
Wendy with a cut on her forehead staring into space in a scene from Ozark.

After four gripping seasons, Ozark, one of the best shows on Netflix, has finally come to an end. Every main character had a heart-wrenching, emotional arc that took fans on a twisted journey, making them see the world through their unique eyes. Like on similar shows, the Byrdes were an average, everyday family that got reluctantly caught up in the criminal underworld they naively thought would be easy to exit.

As they were forced to dive deeper and deeper into the illegal drug trade, they became ruthless, sometimes cruel, players in the game -- if for no reason than a necessity to spare their own lives. Financial whiz Marty, played by Jason Bateman, appeared to be the only one desperate to get out. He maintained his moral compass and sense of empathy through to the end. Laura Linney's Wendy, however, was a different story.

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?
