Netflix will be launching the second season of Ozark on August 31, 2018 at 12:01am PT. The announcement of the new season came with a one-minute video filled with gunshots and the news the Byrde family will be attempting to slip back into their old lives.
The cast of season two is led by Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, and Julia Garner. Janet McTeer joins the series as “a Chicago based attorney with links to the cartel. In making a deal with the devil, she becomes a potential threat to the Byrdes.”
The dramatic series is executive produced by Jason Bateman, Chris Mundy, Bill Dubuque, and Mark Williams.
The Season 2 Plot: In its much-anticipated second season, Ozark continues to follow Marty Bryde and his family as they navigate the murky waters of life within a dangerous drug cartel. With Del out, the crime syndicate sends their ruthless attorney Helen Pierce to town to shake things up just as The Byrdes are finally settling in.
Marty and Wendy struggle to balance their family interests amid the escalating dangers presented by their partnerships with the power-hungry Snells, the cartel and their new deputy, Ruth Langmore, whose father Cade has been released from prison. The stakes are even higher than before and The Byrdes soon realize they have to go all in before they can get out.
A Look Back at Season 1: 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.
