What is Ozark?
If you haven’t watched Ozark on Netflix, there’s plenty of time to catch up before Season 3 premieres in March. If you don’t have time, here’s what you have missed so far:
- Season 1: Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) is a money launderer for a Mexican drug cartel, but after his business partner was found skimming money, things turn sour. Marty is forced to trade his Chicago life for the Ozark Lakes in Missouri. He must launder $500 million over five years there. Throughout the season, things go from bad to worse, as Marty deals with relocating his family and the challenges of repaying his cartel debt.
- Season 2: Marty and his family get stuck between keeping the cartel happy and getting the local drug kingpins onside. Throughout the season, both Marty and Wendy settle into their roles as the bad guys, with Wendy even reveling in the fact. Season 2 also adds a fantastic new character: cartel lawyer Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer).
