Ten months after renewing “Ozark” for a second season, Netflix has finally set the premiere date for the second outing of the Jason Bateman-led drama.
In addition to four new photos, Netflix has also released a short new teaser for “Ozark” Season 2, revealing that the series will finally make its return on August 31.
The second season will continue to follow Marty Byrde (Bateman) and his family as they navigate the murky waters of life within a dangerous drug cartel.
With Del (Esai Morales) out, the crime syndicate sends their ruthless attorney Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) to town to shake things up just as The Byrdes are finally settling in. Marty and Wendy (Laura Linney) 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 (Julia Garner), whose father Cade (Trevor Long) 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.
Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, Jordana Spiro, Jason Butler Harner, Peter Mullan and Lisa Emery also star.
Bateman also serves as an executive producer on the series, alongside Chris Mundy, Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams. Patrick Markey is a producer. “Ozark” is produced by Media Rights Capital and Aggregate Films.
