Ozark Season Three Is Now Available To Stream On Netflix

Ozark fans rejoice - the third season is now available to stream on Netflix.

Like the previous seasons, it is comprised of 10 episodes, each of which are around an hour in length, so there's roughly 10 hours' worth of lockdown entertainment sorted. Or, if you've never watched it before, 30-odd hours if you want to start from the beginning.

The crime drama series follows financial planner Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman) and his wife Wendy (Laura Linney) as they relocate from Chicago to Missouri after a money laundering scheme backfires. In order to repay a Mexican drug cartel, Marty then sets up a bigger money laundering operation in the Ozarks - a mountainous region covering the southern half of Missouri.

And voila, you've got the premise for three season's worth of drama right there. Oh, and on top of all this you've got the subtext of marital discord to sink your teeth into too.

If you have already watched the first two seasons, let's get you caught up with where we're at.

Marty waded deeper into a life of crime in season two, with the final episode seeing him buy a casino boat, which the family planned to use as a front to smuggle drug money to the cartel - I mean, what could possibly go wrong there?

Bateman explained at the 2019 Emmys that the new season picks up six months after the end of the second series.

He said: "The casino is up and running and that provides us with more opportunities both positive and negative, some that are tempting and some that are calming. That affects the family in interesting ways, and certainly the relationship that Marty has with Wendy."

Series creator Chris Mundy told IndieWire the new season will revolve around Marty and Wendy's marriage.

He said: "The third season to us is [about] what keeps you safe and whether or not hiding keeps you safe or attacking keeps you safe.

"In other seasons - between Season 1 and Season 2, certainly - we sort of left with a whole lot of plot we needed to answer, and we intentionally didn't leave ourselves with a whole lot of plot to answer for in Season 3.

"So it's more emotional within; we write everything through the marriage. So for us, it's all about that marriage."

The official synopsis from Netflix reads: "It's six months later, the casino is up and running, but Marty and Wendy are fighting for control of the family's destiny.

"Marty preaches keeping the status quo. Aided by an alliance with Helen and drug cartel leader Omar Navarro, Wendy plots for expansion. But when Wendy's brother Ben comes into town, everyone's lives are thrown into chaos."
