Netflix announced Tuesday afternoon, the streaming company has renewed the series ‘Ozark’ for Season 2 and ordered 10 new episodes.
The first season received mixed reviews from Rotten Tomatoes and sits at a 65%, but our own Matthew Sardo enjoyed the brutally honest family dynamic, mixed with redneck and drug running drama. The cliffhanger alone at the end of season one is enough reason to renew the series.
Jason Bateman directed four episodes of the series created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams.
About the ‘Ozark’:
A Chicago financial advisor, who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin, must quickly uproot his family and move the operation to The Ozarks, after his partner is caught cheating the business. There, he bumps heads with both a local drug dealer whose business he inadvertently interrupts, and a clan of ruffians, led by their 19-year-old niece, who want his money, all the while avoiding the eye of a tenacious FBI agent. He must complete his laundering, to save the life of his family, as they struggle to find their own path in this seemingly foreign way of life.
The series stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, Jordana Spiro, Jason Butler Harner, Esai Morales, Peter Mullan, and Lisa Emery.
Look for season two of ‘Ozark’ in the summer of 2018.
