Netflix releases final episodes of ‘Ozark’ on Friday

 Netflix is set to release the final episodes of “Ozark,” a TV series based on the Lake of the Ozarks, this week.

netflix

Part II of the final season of “Ozark” premieres on Friday, April 29. The series began in 2017 and consists of four seasons.

Season four marks an end to the series. Netflix is releasing 14 episodes of “Ozark” this year, and half of them became available for streaming on Jan. 21. Prior to then, Netflix was nearly two years removed from its previous season, which came out in March 2020.

“Ozark” stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney as the main characters, Marty and Wendy Byrde. While the fictional show is based on the Byrde family’s experiences in the Missouri Ozarks, the filming takes place in Georgia.

The series involves money laundering and drug cartel-based drama. The Byrde family moves from Chicago to a small town in the Missouri Ozarks to escape problems, but the series gets more intense each season.

The finale for Part I of the fourth season offers new insight into the Byrde family’s relationship with drug kingpin Omar Navarro and his nephew Javi Elizonndro. Ruth Langmore, another primary character in the series played by Julia Garner, will begin the next set of episodes with several new challenges.

“We’re so happy Netflix recognized the importance of giving Ozark more time to end the Byrdes’ saga right,” showrunner Chris Mundy said in a statement via Variety. “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.”

“A super sized season means super sized problems for the Byrdes,” Bateman said via Variety. “I’m excited to end with a bang.”

What’s Coming to (and Leaving) Netflix in May 2022

Well, we know viewers are leaving, but what about shows? Here they are. Catch them before they go… or not!

Millie Bobby Brown, Stranger Things Netflix

April has been a terrible month for Netflix — the company is now valued at $54 billion less than it was worth yesterday, after a disastrous Q1 earnings report — and the streaming service would like to fast forward to the end of May, when its biggest show, Stranger Things, returns for its long-awaited Season 4. 

Some good stuff is expiring from Netflix on May 31, like the complete runs of Downton Abbey and Happy Endings, two I Know What You Did Last Summer movies, and sports drama The Blind Side, which has been holding down a spot on Netflix’s Daily Top 10 Movies list for a few weeks. So catch all those before they’re gone.

Candace Cameron Bure Departs Hallmark Channel for GAC Family

GAC Media has announced that Full House alum Candace Cameron Bure has signed an agreement with the company to develop, produce, and star in movies and television across GAC Family and GAC Living.

The hiring of Bure continues GAC Media’s efforts to rebrand since bringing aboard former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott last year. In September 2021, the former Great American Country network relaunched as GAC Family, aiming to present more family-oriented entertainment, similar to Abbott’s former employer Hallmark Channel.

Bure is perhaps best known for playing D.J. Tanner in the classic ABC sitcom Full House; she would reprise the role in Netflix’s reboot Fuller House in 2016. She competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2014 and was co-host of The View in 2015 and 2016. Outside of her film and TV work, Bure is a New York Times best-selling author, having written four lifestyle and self-help books.

Others faces familiar to Hallmark viewers who have appeared in GAC programming include Trevor Donovan, Nick Bateman, Rukiya Bernard, Sara Canning, Dillon Casey, Torrance Coombs, Trevor Donovan, Brendan Fehr, Jennie Garth, Maggie Lawson, Jen Lilley, Sarah Lind, Daniel Lissing, Jessica Lowndes, Matthew MacCaull, Chad Michael Murray, Sam Page, Merritt Patterson, Becca Tobin, Jill Wagner and Dewshane Williams.

Hulu’s The Dropout Is a Biting 8-Part True Story

Amanda Seyfried plays Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes in a series that pulls no punches.

Following Inventing Anna, and beginning ahead of WeCrashed, television’s year of the scammer continues on Hulu with The Dropout. The Dropout tells the story of the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes, the titular Stanford dropout who went on to found the now-defunct company Theranos—which at one point promised to change the world of healthcare and blood testing, and eventually found its founder convicted of fraud.

Unlike the mishandled Inventing Anna, however, The Dropout actually holds its subjects’ feet to the fire. Rather than awkwardly framing Holmes (along with her partner Sunny Balwani) as fighting some sort of noble fight, it frames her as what she was: a liar. An ambitious liar, sure, but nonetheless a liar whose fabrications not only cost people money, but wound up hurting people, too.

Amanda Seyfried, who last year picked up an Academy Award nomination for her work in David Fincher’s Mank, will likely find herself in Emmy conversations this time around for her work playing Holmes. From her work in Mean Girls and Mamma Mia to Jennifer’s Body and Twin Peaks, Seyfried has always shown an immense talent for fully transforming into character—and adding a layer of depth and a degree of complexity to a character seen frequently in the media is her latest achievement in the craft.

BETH DUBBER

The only other series regular in The Dropout is Naveen Andrews (Lost) who plays Balwani, but the show also features an impressive array of guest stars, including Laurie Metcalf, Alan Ruck, Sam Waterston, William H. Macy, and Dylan Minnette. And it makes sense for it to be that way—this is the story of Holmes, with Balwani somewhat along with her for the ride. So, it makes sense that they’re the only ones we’re seeing with any regularity.

All eight episodes of The Dropout are now on Hulu.

NCIS Franchise Fans Just Got The Best Possible News

If you’re a fan of criminal investigations, the United States Navy, or criminal investigations specifically related to the United States Navy, life is about as good as it gets these days, television-wise.

Currently, the flagship series, “NCIS,” has been on the air since 2003, and is in the middle of its nineteenth overall season. “NCIS: Los Angeles” made its debut voyage in 2009 and the Season 13 finale will be airing in May. “NCIS: Hawai’i” is the youngest show of the three, debuting in September 2021.

Typically, each of the spinoffs follows the same production cycle as “NCIS” has. In most previous years, CBS makes the decision whether to renew “NCIS” about a month or two before the season finale, which has come in May every year except 2020. Usually, the renewal decision comes in at the end of March or beginning of April.

Sure enough, with spring just kicking off recently, CBS has just made its decision.

© Sonja Flemming/CBS

As reported by “The Hollywood Reporter,” “NCIS,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” and “NCIS: Hawai’i” have all been renewed for new seasons. Assuming CBS follows the same schedule, that means Season 20 of “NCIS,” Season 14 of “NCIS: Los Angeles,” and Season 2 of “NCIS: Hawai’i” will all premiere in September 2022, and continue until May 2023.

For the main “NCIS” series, losing lead actor Mark Harmon, who plays Leroy Jethro Gibbs, didn’t stop it from retaining its spot as the most-watched TV show on broadcast TV. Season 19 of “NCIS” averaged 11.1 million viewers. “NCIS: Hawai’i” ranks second at 8.29 million viewers per episode, but it’s also virtually tied with “FBI: International” as the most-watched new series on broadcast TV. Finally, “NCIS: Los Angeles” brings in a respectable 7.27 million per.

As if that wasn’t enough, 2023 will also see the premiere of a third “NCIS” spinoff, “NCIS: Sydney,” which will be set in Australia. That series will be available only on Paramount+, giving “NCIS” fans a big incentive to sign up for the streaming service that launched in March 2021 (via The Hollywood Reporter). The series is created by “NCIS: Los Angeles” creator Shane Brennan, who hails from Down Under. It will be produced in Australia and will feature local actors and producers. “NCIS: Sydney” doesn’t yet have an announced release date.

All in all, there will be plenty more navy-related crimes in the near future.

‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Series ‘House of the Dragon’ to Debut in August

The Targaryens are returning to HBO.

“House of the Dragon,” HBO’s first spin-off series of its record-breaking juggernaut “Game of Thrones,” will premiere on Aug. 21, the network announced Wednesday. HBO also revealed a new poster for the series and additional images from the show, which you can view below.

Set two centuries before the events of “Game of Thrones,” the ten-episode prequel series will depict how the House of Targaryen fell into a bitter and brutal civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons — presaging the beginning of the end of the ruling family of Westeros.

Much like the original series, “House of the Dragon” boasts a sprawling cast, with a smaller core set of characters including Paddy Considine (as King Viserys I), Emmy D’Arcy (as Princess Rhaenrya, Viserys’ first child and his heir apparent), Matt Smith (as Prince Daemon, Viserys’ younger brother), Rhys Ifans (as Ser Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King), Olivia Cooke (as Lady Alicent Hightower, Otto’s daughter) and Fabien Frankel (as Ser Criston Cole, a knight with eyes for Rhaenrya).

The show will also costar Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Ryan Corr, Jefferson Hall, David Horovitch, Graham McTavish, Matthew Needham, Bill Paterson and Gavin Spokes.

The premiere date means “House of the Dragon” has a bit of a head start on the year’s other massive fantasy series that serves as a prequel to a widely popular and acclaimed original adaptation: “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.” Amazon Prime Video announced in August 2021 that “The Rings of Power” will debut on the streamer on Sept. 2.

In February, Martin announced on his personal blog that shooting on Season 1 of “House of the Dragon” had wrapped. “I have seen rough cuts of a few of them, and I’m loving them,” Martin wrote. “Of course, a lot more work needs to be done. Special effects, color timing, score, all the post production work. But the writing, the directing, the acting all look terrific. I hope you will like them as much as I do.”

The same month, HBO and HBO Max chief Casey Bloys told Variety that “it’s probably a pretty good bet” that the network will order a second season of the show. “Generally speaking, we usually let something air and see how it does, but obviously, we’ll make preparations ahead of time to make sure we’re ahead of the game,” he said.

What’s leaving Netflix in April

(I thought I would give you a heads-up so you might catch these Netflix viewed shows one last time before they leave. Here is the list.)

It’s that time again. With March slowly fading away and April on the horizon, it’s time to check in on which movies and TV titles are cycling off Netflix soon.

Two big TV shows from the ’90s — Star Trek: The Next Generation and Dawson’s Creek — are both departing the streaming service next month. Since they each have at least six seasons, it might be too late for a binge, but there’s plenty of time to revisit old favorites or check out standout episodes before they go away. Plenty of movies are also leaving Netflix in April, from perennial favorites like The Shawshank Redemption to modern classics like The Florida Project.

Where Is Anna Delvey Now?

Anna Sorokin, the con artist otherwise known as Anna Delvey, is back in the headlines after the release of Netflix’s Inventing Anna. Actress Julia Garner stars as Delvey in the Shonda Rhimes-produced miniseries, which documents the rise and fall of the fake heiress and how she defrauded wealthy friends, banks, hotels, and more.

Delvey was released from prison on good behavior on February 11, 2021 after serving nearly four years. In March 2021, six weeks after her release, she was taken back into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for overstaying her visa, and she remained in ICE custody in upstate New York for a year.

Source: townandcountrymag.com/

UPDATE:

Immediately after she was released, Sorokin settled her debts. She used a portion of the $320,000 she received from Netflix for the rights to her life story to pay back the $200,000 she owed the banks. She coughed up an additional $25,000 to pay New York state fines. With her debts settled, she checked into the NoMad Hotel in downtown Manhattan and resumed posting glam shots of her post-prison life on Instagram. She gave countless interviews and made a few bold statements about her experience in prison. On Good Morning America, she claimed her time in Rikers was “therapeutic.” She rented an apartment in Manhattan and began promoting a potential new fashion collaboration with former Hood By Air designer Paul Cupo. She checked in with her parole officer regularly. Obviously, she hired a videographer to document her new life.

Unfortunately, it was short-lived.

Why was Anna Sorokin rearrested?

In March 2021, Sorokin was arrested by immigration authorities for overstaying her visa. She had an immigration detainer attached to her name when she was first released from prison, but clearly, she wasn’t in any rush to leave New York. Sorokin was scheduled to be deported back to Germany (Auf Wiedersehen, Anna!) on March 26, but was filing an application for relief, which is essentially legalese for “please don’t make me go back to Germany,” as as a result stayed in custody stateside. Through her lawyer, Audrey Thomas, Sorokin has asked to be granted asylum.

According to court documents reviewed by Esquire, Sorokin applied for asylum based on a “fear of returning to Germany.” Evidently, Sorokin and her family have received numerous threats “due to the media coverage of her crimes” and she fears she will be “retaliated against for embarrassing her country.” Sorokin’s application for asylum was denied in June 2021, but she quickly appealed. Despite her lawyer’s many attempts to get her released on bond while she awaits a final decision on her appeal, Sorokin remained in custody in Orange County Correctional Facility in upstate New York. She tested positive for COVID-19 in January and spent more than a week in quarantine isolation. “I’m sure I’ll live, but I haven’t been this sick in years,” wrote Sorokin in an article published by Insider.

Did Anna Sorokin Get Deported?

Not yet! Sorokin was supposed to board a flight bound to Frankfurt on Monday night, but the deportation failed at the last minute when, according to the New York Post, she just, like, didn’t show up to the airport. Sorokin’s lawyer, Manny Arora, has since said that her failure to appear was most likely caused by the motion he filed late on Monday afternoon to stay the deportation. Evidently, a judge needs to make an official decision on that matter before Sorokin can be deported. “Until we get a ruling from the appeal to stay the deportation, there won’t be much else to report,” explained Arora.

So consider it one of those rare instances when missing a flight is actually a good thing, because if there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that the fake heiress really doesn’t want to return to Germany.
