Entertainment Weekly caught up with showrunner Chris Mundy, who talked in regards to the violent finale, when Janet McTeer’s Helen will get shot within the head, with crime boss Navarro seeming to carry all of the playing cards. 

“By the time it came to the end, we really wanted to hold that tension of these two things cannot cohabitate, somebody’s got to win this battle, because Navarro isn’t going to put up with anything unstable and he was going to have to pick a side,” Mundy mentioned. “The whole last episode starts in a very tentative way because there’s fallout from things that happened in episode 9, and once it clicks into gear we didn’t want it to stop until the very last possible second.”

Navarro was final seen hugging a bloodied Wendy and Marty, promising a brand new starting., which mainly means the start of being actually in deep. Maybe in too deep, however that’s a query that will be explored in season 4, supplied there may be one.

Netflix hasn’t formally OK’d season Four but, and that will make some individuals nervous as a result of Netflix doesn’t let exhibits run lengthy anymore as a common rule. If for some motive Ozark did cease right here, it might appear to be it’s ending earlier than its time with such a cliffhanger of a conclusion. 

Mundy says: “If we’re lucky enough to get a season 4, I think it will be about whether or not Ruth really can create something of her own that she wants and is sustainable, or if she wants something else. And I think it will be about if the Byrdes can they turn the biggest mistake of their lives into this huge advantage, and how much will karma catch up with them if they do?”
