Ozark Season 3 premiered on Netflix on Friday, March 27, with all 10 episodes dropping at once on the streaming platform. The series returns after Season 2 dropped on Netflix in August 2018.

After the long break, Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, and Skylar Gaertner return to reprise their respective roles as Marty, Wendy, Charlotte, and Jonah.

However, many members of the Season 2 cast —  including Buddy (Harris Yulin), Pastor Mason (Michael Mosley), Cade (Trevor Long), Roy Petty (Jason Butler Harner), and Jacob Snell (Peter Mullan) — did not make it out of the season alive.

Following the exit of so many characters in the last season, Ozark Season 3 introduces several new characters and cast members.

One of the newcomers to the show’s cast this season is young actress Madison Thompson, who plays Helen Pierce’s (Janet McTeer) daughter Erin.

Erin leaves her home in Chicago to spend the summer with her mom in the Ozarks and she struggles to adjust to the new rural environment.
