The first look photos show that the Byrdes are back along with potty-mouthed local, Ruth, alongside some new faces to round out the final season.
Alfonso Herrera as Javi Elizonndro. Javi is Navarro’s nephew and he is tired of playing the role of obedient lieutenant and is looking for a moment to make a large power move.
Adam Rothenberg as Mel Sattem. Sattem is a disgraced ex-cop turned P.I. who arrives to get Helen’s signature for her divorce papers and stumbles upon the Byrdes’ dirty laundry. Like any good gumshoe, the more they lie, the more he pries.
Katrina Lenk as Clare Shaw. Shaw is the CEO of a leading biopharmaceutical company that gets into bed with the Bryde’s and learns that there is a cost associated with power.
In addition to the promo images, is this cheeky wee teaser:
The synopsis for the final season of Ozark reads:
“Marty and Wendy are rid of Helen and climb to the top of Navarro’s empire. They find another opportunity to get out of the Ozarks but some past sins won’t stay buried and the most dangerous threats come from blood.”
In a previous interview with EW, Ozark showrunner Chris Mundy said what’s next for the Byrdes:
“As good as Helen is, there are other lawyers in the world. But Wendy and Marty have now pulled off two impossibilities for him. One is getting a casino to launder through in the first place, which is sort of the holy grail of money laundering.”
“And the second is that, at least in Navarro’s mind, their claim that they have the FBI on their side and can swing the power of the U.S. government in the intervention in the drug war against their rivals, that’s something virtually no one else can do, and that essentially tipped the scales for Marty and Wendy.”
Ozark’s final season will consist of two parts with seven episodes each, the first part premieres on January 21st.
