Is anyone ready to step back into the dark world of the Byrde family? Well there's no time to decide because Ozark is returning and there's a matter of months to prepare yourselves.
The gritty American crime drama will be back for season two and in a recent trailer that Netflix released we found out the premiere date (which is 31 August, btw) and were also let into a bunch of ominous events are on the cards for Wendy (Laura Linney) and Marty (Jason Bateman).
Pop Sugar reported that there were a few pieces of dialogue uttered throughout the minute-long clip including: "We've done a lot of things. Things that we said we would never do," "Choices have consequences" and "What is the end game?"
Dun, dun, duuuuuun. We can't wait.
Season two will presumably pick up as the Byrdes deal with new rivals, the ruthless Snell family, and a certain someone's father being released from prison.
This series will also see the arrival of ruthless crime syndicate attorney Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) which will cause struggles for Marty and Wendy.
In the first season, Jason Bateman stars as Martin 'Marty' Byrde in Bill Dubuque's thriller, who starts laundering money for a Mexican drug cartel with his pal Rachel Garrison, played by Jordana Spiro.
Marty, his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) and their two kids relocate but Byrde gets caught up with the cartel after a different money-laundering scheme goes wrong.
The show has been compared to Breaking Bad, but judging from its extremely popular reception, it can clearly stand on its own.

This new season will continue to follow the Byrde family as they continue to launder money to repay a debt to a drug cartel. And it looks like the drama series won't end at this point.
Showrunner Chris Mundy reckons the thriller could go for much longer: "We've always talked about five. Four would be fine, six would probably be fine, but it's always felt like [five is] a good number to tell the story."
So get the diary out because on 31 August you're going to be very busy indeed.
