What’s This TV Show About?
Streaming on the Netflix paid subscription platform, Ozark stars Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Julia Garner, Jordana Spiro, Jason Butler Harner, Esai Morales, Peter Mullan, Lisa Emery, Josh Randall, Harris Yulin, Michael Mosley, Marc Menchaca, and Trevor Long.
The crime drama centers on Marty Byrde (Bateman), a Chicago financial advisor. Marty has been laundering money along with his partner, Bruce (Randall), for Camino Del Rio (Morales), a drug lord who works for a major cartel. When Del learns $8 million of his money has gone missing, he takes out Bruce, but gives a reprieve to Marty, after listening to his pitch on how he can repay him. Although their marriage is on the rocks, now Marty and his wife Wendy (Linney) must pull together as they uproot their children — Charlotte (Hublitz) and Jonah (Gaertner) — and start over in a strange, new place.

Because they’re not ad-dependent, Nielsen doesn’t track the viewership of streaming series, like Ozark, so we won’t know how it is doing, unless Netflix decides to publicize its viewership. Variety‘s review was largely positive, while The Hollywood Reporter‘s was less so, but Netflix will mostly consider viewing statistics, when deciding whether to cancel or renew Ozark for season two. In the meantime, I’ll keep an eye on the trades and update this page with any Ozark cancellation or renewal news. Subscribe for free updates.

What do you think? Are you glad that the Ozark TV show was renewed for a second season? How would you feel if Netflix had cancelled this TV series, instead?
Love this show on so many levels. The writing and acting are superb. While it could stand alone as a limited series, that would be a severe disappointment, as the last episode begs for a sequel. A very dark story gets “Breaking Bad” humor to ease the tension, esp. from Jason Bateman. Bring it back!
My boyfriend and I loved it. It’s right there with Breaking Bad! Please keep it going!
Renew please! Haven’t been as engaged since “Breaking Bad”. It would be a shame to let this one go.
Yes as good as any show except Justified.
Please, please, please give me more!! Best show out right now!
Well done. Great characters. Deserves a second season
Did I see something else? OZARK is breaking records for new show audiences. It was reviewed several times as dark and crossing lines. I see brilliant acting and every scene has a reason – not seeing any gratuitous scenes. As for dark – YES it is. With enough humor to keep me riveted. I expect to see this show (especially the wonderful Julia Garner as Ruth/Margaret. She is spectacular and I love her snarky sense of humor) get showered with Emmy nominations! I saw that it was renewed in an article posted today! Please keep us informed? Which is it?
