Ozark Season 3 is coming to Netflix! 10 new episodes of the show will soon arrive on the streaming service.
As star Jason Bateman, who directed the first two episodes of the upcoming frame, put it upon the (Oct. 10, 2018) third season renewal announcement, “I’m happy for me, but concerned for Marty.” – Us, too, Jason.
Indeed, as long as there’s an audience for the crime drama series, it will continue on for a fair while yet. The team behind Ozark have a five-year plan set out, but they seem open to extending the story beyond that.
“We’ve always talked about it as five seasons. It could be four, it could be seven … but that always seemed like a good number to us,” said showrunner Chris Mundy at the April 2019 Milken Global Conference in Beverly Hills.

Ozark Season 3 Photos
Here are some of the first official photos for Ozark Season 3, starting with an image that shows how the apparent imprisonment of Jason Bateman’s Marty has him thown into the literal hole.
Ozark Season 3 Story Details
As the official synopsis for Ozark Season 3 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.
To put that into context, Ozark Season 2, saw Marty (Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) get into the casino business to try and scrounge up from cash for the cartel. According to the cast and showrunner Mundy, Marty and Wendy will be “struggling with their power dynamic and ‘dealing with outside forces'” when season 3 kicks off, as
Wendy’s brother, “who we’ve hinted at the first couple years as having some mental illness in the past” will be “a very destabilising factor” for the pair.
“The riverboat casino that you see last season in fact goes into operation,” Bateman confirmed to Deadline. “We pick up six months later from the end of the second season. The casino is up and running and provides us with more opportunities both positive and negative. Some of that is temping and some that are calming. Ultimately it all affects the family.”
