The second season of Netflix‘s acclaimed crime drama Ozark arrived in August 2018, only a year after Season 1, but fans have had a much longer wait for Season 3. There has been little news since star Jason Bateman confirmed that the third season was on the way back in October 2018, but the streaming giant has finally confirmed its release date.
Ozark Season 3 will hit the service in its entirety on March 27 via this short teaser. In addition, the first images from the new season have been released. They show Bateman and co-star Laura Linney as enterprising married criminals Marty and Wendy Byrde, who continue to develop their money-laundering business in rural Missouri, plus co-stars Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz, and Skylar Gaertner. It all looks suitably moody, and there’s an intriguing one of Marty seemingly stuck down a big hole. Check them out below:
Netflix has also released a synopsis for Ozark Season 3. It reads: “It’s six months later, the casino is up and running, but Marty and Wendy are fighting for control of the family’s destiny. Marty preaches keeping the status quo. Aided by an alliance with Helen and drug cartel leader Omar Navarro, Wendy plots for expansion. But when Wendy’s brother Ben comes into town, everyone’s lives are thrown into chaos.”
In a recent interview, Ozark creator Chris Mundy explained how Season 3 would differ from the preceding two. “The third season to us is [about] what keeps you safe and whether or not hiding keeps you safe or attacking keeps you safe,” he said via Indiewire. “In other seasons–between Season 1 and Season 2, certainly–we sort of left with a whole lot of plot we needed to answer, and we intentionally didn’t leave ourselves with a whole lot of plot to answer for in Season 3. So it’s more emotional within; we write everything through the marriage. So for us, it’s all about that marriage.”
