The trailer for “Ozark” Season 3 opens with Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) commuting by Sea Ray to his family’s new money-laundering venture, a riverboat casino. Shortly thereafter, it cuts to Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) pointing a gun at her hubby.

Yeah, the Byrdes have problems, which is probably why they have hired marriage counselor Sue Shelby (Marylouise Burke) to help them sort through a very unique situation. There’s just one problem with Sue’s impartial professional advice: Marty is bribing her.

Shortly thereafter, in case it wasn’t absolutely crystal clear that Shelby is the Netflix show’s resident couples therapist, Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) tells Marty, “I’m not your f—ing marriage counselor.”

She used to at least be his f—ing employee, but now the lines are a bit blurred. Ruth was never really one for being subordinate.

Later on in the two-minute, 12-second sneak peek, Marty gets kidnapped (again) and the crap beaten out of him (again). It’s that kind of life for Martin Byrde.

Watch the trailer via the video above.

The “Ozark” trailer picks up six months after Season 2 ended. The casino is now up and running, but Marty and Wendy fighting for control of the family’s destiny, according to the logline. Marty preaches keeping the status quo — Wendy, not so much.

Aided by an alliance with Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) and drug cartel leader Omar Navarro (Felix Solis), Wendy plots for expansion, it continues. But when Wendy’s brother Ben (Tom Pelphrey) comes into town, everyone’s lives are thrown into chaos. As if they weren’t already there.

Season 3 also stars Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan, Lisa Emery and Jessica Frances Dukes. The series from MRC Television was created by Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams who executive produce alongside Bateman, Chris Mundy and John Shiban.

“Ozark” Season 3 premieres on Netflix on Friday, March 27.
