What to expect in Ozark Season 3
Jason Bateman serves as the executive producer, occasional director and portrays Marty Byrde, a family man who moves his family from Chicago to the Ozarks to launder money for a powerful Mexican drug cartel.
Marty ends up digging himself in a deeper hole by proposing a casino to launder the money for both the Mexican cartel and local heroin dealers The Snells.
In the finale of Ozark Season 2, Marty’s wife Wendy Byrde assumes control of the money laundering operation as Marty seemingly takes the back seat.
Ruth Langmore continues to be an important ally to the Byrde family while pondering whether to keep all the cartel money for herself.
The finale of the second season teased an upcoming feud between the Kansas City mafia and the Byrdes.
While there will likely be some casting announcements as production begins, most of the main cast that survived Season 2 are expected to return.
