Ozark just got a little bit more bad and dangerous as the Netflix series has cast Ali Stoker (Blue Bloods) and Veronica Falcón (Why Women Kill) in crucial roles for the upcoming fourth season. The fourth season will be the series last, with no premiere date announced as of yet, via The Hollywood Reporter.
Falcón has been cast in the role of Camila, the sister of the drug cartel leader Omar Navarro, portrayed by Felix Solis (Charmed). It’s not a picture perfect family though, as Navarro’s son Javi Elizonndro, who will be played by Alfonso Herrera (The Exorcist), is plotting to take over the cartel. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, “Camila quietly works behind the scenes to become a formidable player in her family’s drug empire.”
Falcón is no stranger to the dangerous underworld of crime, as she starred on the series, Queen of the South, as the conniving villain Camila Vargas for three seasons. She also recently appeared in the 2021 revival of the mystery series Perry Mason on HBO as Lupe. In addition, Falcón can be seen in both the Disney+ original limited series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and the Paramount+ series Why Women Kill.
Stoker is set to play Charles-Ann, an old friend of Ruth’s mother. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Charles-Ann lends her (Ruth) a hand when she is in need of some assistance.” Knowing how season four shockingly ended for Ruth’s character, played by Julia Garner (The Assistant), viewers can rest assured she will be needing some support
A Tony-Award winning actress, Stoker is known for her role as Ado Annie in the 2019 Broadway production of Oklahoma!. Stoker was also a finalist in the second season of The Glee Project and went on to appear in a guest role on the Fox series, Glee. She’s also guest starred in the CBS series Blue Bloods.
The fourth and final season of Ozark will be split into two seven-episode parts, containing fourteen episodes in total. It’s garnered critical acclaim throughout its first three seasons, with it winning various awards including numerous Emmys. Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) who stars in the series, also directed a handful of episodes, winning himself an Emmy Award for Best Directing in 2020. Notably, he will not be directing any episodes for season four due to COVID-19 precautions.
