Netflix's <i>Ozark</i> Renewed for Season Three

Netflix is bringing the Byrdes back for another go-round, renewing its original crime drama Ozark for a 10-episode third season on Wednesday. As of now, it’s unclear when the series will return—season two debuted in August.

Ozark stars Jason Bateman as Marty Byrde, a financial planner who is forced to relocate his family from Chicago to the Missouri Ozarks after running afoul of the Mexican drug cartel for whom he is a top money launderer.

The Arrested Development actor has taken a hard turn into dramatic territory on the show, depicting a decidedly anti-heroic character while also directing multiple episodes and executive producing Ozark.

The Golden Globe-nominated series also stars Laura Linney as Marty’s wife Wendy Byrde, and Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner as their children Charlotte and Jonah, respectively.

For those of you who need a refresher on Ozark so far, Netflix offers the following season two synopsis:

In its much-anticipated second season, Ozark continues to follow Marty Byrde 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.
