Though the series was released less than a month ago, Netflix has already decided to renew the Ozark TV show for a second season. There will be another 10 episodes in season two but there’s no word on when they will be produced or released.
A crime drama, Ozark stars Jason Bateman (who also executive produced and directed the series). Bateman also stars in the Arrested Development comedy series. It ran on FOX for three seasons and was revived several years later by Netflix for a fourth season. A fifth season is currently being filmed.
Here’s Netflix’s announcement about the Ozark renewal:
Netflix renews OZARK for a second season
Netflix has renewed the original series Ozark for Season 2, with 10 new episodes.
In Ozark, This money-centric present day story revolves around financial planner Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) and their family’s sudden relocation from the suburbs of Chicago to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks. Rather than the familiar skyscrapers and trading floors, Ozark explores capitalism, family dynamics, and survival through the eyes of (anything but) ordinary Americans. For Ozark, executive producer and director is Jason Bateman, with executive producer/writer Chris Mundy, and executive producers Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams. The series is produced by Bateman’s Aggregate Films in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix, and was created by Dubuque and Williams.
