Fans of “Ozark” will get new episodes of the drama in just a few days and Netflix released a first-look trailer for the new season. You can watch the video below and set a reminder to catch the new episodes when they release on Netflix in August.
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. Netflix teased the new season adding, “The stakes are even higher than before and The Byrdes soon realize they have to go all in before they can get out.”
Netflix had previously announced that Janet McTeer will join the cast in “Ozark” Season 2
If you haven’t jumped into the show yet, “Ozark” stars Jason Bateman as a Chicago financial advisor, who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin (Esai Morales), and must quickly uproot his wife (played by Laura Linney) and children (played by Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner) 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 (standout Julia Garner), who want his money, all the while avoiding the eye of a tenacious FBI agent (Jason Butler Harner). 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. Jordana Spiro, Peter Mullan and Lisa Emery also star.
“Ozark” Season 2 will hit Netflix on August 3, 2018.
