The Byrde family will find themselves in more hot water when Ozark season 3 returns to Netflix.
Ozark season 3 is coming to Netflix! 10 crisp episodes of the show are scheduled to be revealed on the streaming service next year. Authority cast figure Jason Bateman, who is also directing the first two episodes of the upcoming season, announced the initial renewal news over on Twitter towards the back end of 2018:
“Elated for myself, but heavily disconcerned for Marty,” Bateman wrote. Us too.
As long as there’s an viewer base for the crime drama series, it will continue on for a fair while yet. The team behind Ozark have a five year plan set out, they seem open so far to extending the story beyond that.
“We’ve always talked about it as five seasons. It may be four, it may even be seven … yet that always felt like a good number to us,” said showrunner Chris Mundy at the Milken Global Conference in Beverly Hills back in April.
We promise to keep you current on all the Ozark season 3 happenings as it takes place, of course!
Ozark Season 3 Release Date
So exactly when will Ozark Season 3 be coming out on Netflix?
Ozark began filming the upcoming third iteration down south-east in Georgia in May, and production on season 3 will continue until October, which means the series won’t return to Netflix until 2020. Sorry!
Ozark Season 3 Cast

Lisa Emery and Janet McTeer will have their recurring roles from season 2 bumped up to series regulars.
Bateman will return as Marty Byrde, organically, as will Linney as Wendy, and Ruth Langmore as Julia Gardner. A recent casting call for the mass-production inquired for upscale shoppers, families and a plethora of extras for a casino shoot – let your mind run, er, wild.
Ozark Season 3 Story Details
On the authority of the cast and showrunner Mundy, Wendy and Marty are “struggling with their power dynamic and ‘dealing with outside forces'” when season 3 kicks off, as Wendy’s brother, “who we’ve clued in at the first couple years as having some mental illness in the past” will be “a very destabilising factor” for the pair.
