Ozark season 4 has arrived on TV screens all over the world and it's ready to binge in full – well, at least Part 1. Those first seven episodes are available on Netflix wherever you are. Here are all the details on how to watch Ozark season 4 as this superb show enters its final run.

Watch Ozark season 4

When: January 21 (part 1 - 7 episodes)  

Stream: Netflix

Cast: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner

Creator: Bill Dubuque, Mark Williams

Ozark season 4 will be the final season of the hit TV show. This super-sized last run consists of 14 episodes split into two parts of seven. The first seven – Ozark season 4 part 1 – streams exclusively on Netflix from today. Ozark season 4 part 2 will drop later in 2022.

If you've not seen the show before, then where have you been? It's one of the very best on Netflix. Ozark is available to watch in 4K HDR (you'll need the Netflix Premium subscription) and follows the story of the seemingly regular Byrde family who find themselves hurriedly relocating from their big city life in Chicago to the backwater country of the Ozarks at the tip of the US South – and all in the space of the first few moments of episode 1.

Headed by dad Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and mom Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney), the family seek a quiet and safe life while navigating their way through a fiendishly treacherous existence caught between local Missouri criminals, international drug cartels and the eyes of the US law agencies.

How's that for as few spoilers as possible? Here's how and when to watch Ozark season 4 on Netflix wherever you are.

How to watch Ozark season 4 and everything on Netflix from anywhere

Ozark season 4 is a Netflix original and will be available to watch on the service in all of the 190 countries where Netflix is available.

Netflix libraries are not the same in all regions, though, and when travelling abroad you may find that your favorite show is not available because the service will match-up with what's on offer in your current location rather than what you normally get a home. You can get around this by using a good VPN.

A VPN is a handy piece of software which changes your IP address to match any location you choose and make streaming services like Netflix provide you with whatever TV shows and films you need.
