This story contains spoilers for Season Four, Part Two of Ozark.

Not that we're counting, but nearly three weeks have passed since Ozark dropped its final episodes. Jonah Byrde shot Mel Sattem (we think!), Ruth fell victim to the Langmore curse, Marty and Wendy escaped yet another jam, and we certainly, most definitely, want more.

If you asked us three weeks ago whether or not Ozark would somehow continue, we'd say no. Now, Ozark's showrunner, Chris Mundy is opening the proverbial door just enough to make us wonder whether or not he's secretly been drafting a spinoff treatment this entire time. “It’s definitely something that people have talked about a bunch. There’s nothing definitive,” Mundy told TVLine of the possibility of an Ozark spinoff. “We’re lucky that people seem to really like the show so there’s obviously going to be some interest there.”

Even though Mundy acknowledged that there "are still ways to stay inside the show and revisit things,” he most likely ruined the possibility of a series centered on Ruth Langmore. (I’m sure people probably would’ve been happier if Ruth was out there," he said.) Chris, Three is right there! We need to know what the man is up to. Or even Verónica Falcón's Camila Elizonndro, who most certainly has some business to take care of going forward.

Anyway, we'll leave you with this bit from Mundy, who, again, seems to be prying that door open more and more every week. We won't fight it. “It was really important for me to end this show,” he continued. “This is the work we did, we did our best and we hope people like it. And then anything that spins off from it would be its own distinct thing, even though it’s in our universe.”
