Marty Byrde’s struggle will continue. Today Netflix renewed the Jason Bateman drama OZARK for a second season, with 10 new episodes to premiere at a later date.
This money-centric present day story revolves around financial planner Marty (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.
