How Tom Pelphrey
Really Felt About
Returning To
Ozark For Season 4
By CHRIS PEREZ
If “Ozark” fans were to ask Emmy-nominated actor Tom Pelphrey about his return to the show for its fourth and final season, he'd tell them it was something he never saw coming. According to Pelphrey, he was so excited and shocked to return for Season 4 that he struggled to keep a straight face while filming.
He told Variety, "I loved every second of it, and I love all the people involved so to get to go down and play with those guys again for a few days, I was pumped. Oddly enough, it was almost difficult to shoot the scenes that we have to shoot … I really had to sit there by myself for a minute and get my head straight, because I was just so happy to be there."
Back in May 2022, Pelphrey spoke to Xoop about the juxtaposition between his giddiness to return and the feelings that his character Ben was supposed to be dealing with in his scenes. However, he described his time on the show as one of the highlights of his career: "That job was, and probably always will be in some way, the most special time for me.”
