Ozark had a brilliant first season, and the show’s second season somehow managed to ramp up the drama even more. By the end of season two, Marty had abandoned his plan to take his family and escape to Australia, an FBI agent was dead, and the Byrde family was set to open their casino.
And of course, fans have been eagerly awaiting season three’s arrival since season two ended in 2018, and Netflix has finally revealed the premiere date for the season. Here’s what we know about season three of Ozark.
Ozark season three will premiere on March 27.
Netflix recently announced that season three of Ozark will be available on March 27, and the season will have 10 episodes, just like seasons one and two.
The plot of Ozark season three picks up six months after the events of season two.
As Deadline reports, the third season will follow the family’s casino business, as it’s now up and running. But even with the new venture proving to be successful, Marty and Wendy begin fighting for control. Wendy then becomes allied with attorney Helen and drug cartel leader Omar Navarro, and she starts to plot for expansion on her own. However, Wendy’s plans (and everyone else’s) are thrown into disarray when her little brother Ben comes to town.
Season three’s cast will still be led by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney.
Bateman will be back as Marty Byrde, and it appears that he also directed the first episode of the season. Linney will reprise her role as Wendy Byrde, and the cast also counts Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, McKinley Belcher III among its returnees.
New full-time cast members include Tom Pelphrey and Jessica Frances Dukes, and Joseph Sikora and Felix Solis are new recurring characters. Pelphrey will play Ben, Wendy’s younger brother, and Solis will take on the role of Omar Navarro, the leader of Mexico’s second largest drug cartel.
