In a statement, Mundy said: "We're so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes' saga right.
"It's been such a great adventure for all of us - both on screen and off - so we're thrilled to get the chance to bring it home in the most fulfilling way possible."
For those who need a recap, the drama follows Marty (Bateman), a Chicago-based financial planner and seemingly average family man, who becomes embroiled in laundering money for the Mexican drug cartel.
When his partner betrays the cartel and is killed, Marty promises the drug lords to repay the money his partner stole and wash $500 million in five years if him and his family can walk away with their lives.
With his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) and two kids, Charlotte (Sofia Hublitz) and Jonah (Skylar Gaertner), Marty relocates to the Ozarks, which he promises gang leaders will be fruitful for laundering.
Talking about the show, Netflix's vice president Cindy Holland commented: "Ozark is a gripping drama that has captivated audiences all around the world and garnered tremendous critical acclaim.
"We're so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and can't wait to see how the Byrdes' journey comes to a close."
Exciting much? The return of Ozark can't come soon enough.
