It’s undoubtedly one of the smash-hit Netflix original dramas that fans around the world have been glued to their screens in recent years. Ozark tells the Byrde family’s story when they are forced to flee to the Ozarks in Chicago following a money-laundering operation, but their world gets complicated much sooner.
Following two excellent seasons, Ozark’s fans have only one question on their lips… when will the show’s third season come?
Starring Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, and Sophia Hublitz, Ozark seems to be gaining strength in the new season, so we’ve got everything we know of the series before launch.
When Will Ozark Season 3 Release On Netflix?
The production went on the floors in May, and on 27 March 2020, the show will all be returning to Netflix.

Who Would Be In The Cast Of Ozark Season 3?
Netflix announced this year that Madison Thompson (the best-known starring in the NCIS: New Orleans) had joined the cast as the head of the teenage girl Erin (Janet McTeer), “who goes to the Ozarks for some mother’s daughter’s bonding which ends where neither expects.”
This year, a few Marvel TV stars that were made redundant by Netflix join the show. Tom Pelphrey and Jessica Frances Dukes will participate as regulars from Iron Fist and Jessica Jones, respectively.
The role of Joseph Sikora and Felix Solis will also be recurring, and the other characters will be played by Janet McTeer, who portrays Helen Pierce and Lisa Emery (Darlene Snell). Of course, the whole Byrde family, including Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, are expected to return.
What Would Be The Plot Of Ozark Season 3?
Showrunner Chris Mundy has said that Ruth Langmore will see her best to get closer to the Byrdes in the new season and will see Marty descending further into the dark (it is hard to see how much darker he can drop!).
Mundy has said that Marty and Wendy Byrde will struggle with their power dynamics and “treat with external force.” He also confirmed that Wendy’s brother, “Who, in the first few years, we suggested that we had some kind of mental disorder in the past,” would be added to the cast and would have a stir.
During season two, Marty Byrde and his family became more involved in a criminal enterprise, which means there is plenty to explore in future seasons.
The final was the launching of Marty’s huge casino boat that he would use to launder the Mexican drug cartel with hundreds of millions of dollars. This is probably the main emphasis for the third season, as the Byrdes are still in service.
There are also plenty of loose ends that must be tied because a lot of blood has been spilled throughout the second season.
A mysterious gunman shot down Cade Langmore, and many wanted him dead, including his daughter Ruth, nephew Wyatt and Marty. Cade also killed Roy Petty, which means that the Feds would have a more significant reason to get to the bottom of the Ozarks.
However, Marty killed Pastor Mason Young–a crime he will not be able to distance himself from, despite all that is before him, to save Wendy. They incinerated his corpse, but it’s certainly not the last we’re going to hear about it. The Byrdes arranged that Darlene Snell (who killed her husband Jacob recently) adopt his son, leaving him unbelievably dangerous.
Nevertheless, the major surprise of the third season was that Wendy was delighted to engage in the money washing of Marty, and ultimately usurped her by establishing a direct communications connection to the cartel via lawyer Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer). We will possibly see this power play built by the two mixed parents in season three.
