Ozark renewed for season 2 at Netflix
Ozark will be back: The Jason Bateman-led drama has been renewed for a 10-episode second season, the streaming service announced Tuesday.
Executive-produced and directed by Bateman, the seriesfollows a dirty financial planner, Marty Byrde (Bateman), who uproots his wife, Wendy (Laura Linney), and their children from the suburbs of Chicago after everything comes crashing down and relocates them to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks. There, Marty is tasked with laundering money for a Mexican drug lord named Del (Esai Morales), who accused Marty of skimming off the top.
When EW spoke to Linney after the first season was released in July, she said she was hopeful that the series would get another season because “there are so many good characters all in one place that something fun is going to happen.”
Ozark is also executive-produced by writer Chris Mundy (The Accountant), and creators Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams. Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
