Ever since Ozark season 3 was officially renewed, people are wondering when they’ll get to the Byrdes back in action. Jason Bateman, who plays Martin ‘Marty’ Byrdes, confirmed the news himself in a tweet last year.

What Happened in Ozark Season 2
Marty Byrdes is a financial adviser that has to move his family to Missouri Ozarks from Chicago because he has to launder $500 million for a criminal drug boss. As the story continues, circumstances only become harder for the Byrdes family. Ozark’s season 2 finale ended when Marty set his new casino boat in motion. The boat’s purpose is to help him pay the Mexican cartel money.
Ozark Season 3: Plot line
It’s easy to assume that most of Ozark season 3 will take place on the casino boat that Marty is going to use to gather the funds he needs. The murder of Cade Langmore still remains unsolved. Hence, the investigation to identify the culprit is going to be a major plot point too. Plus, the fact that Cade Langmore had murdered a police officer before he himself was murdered makes matters rather complicated. The investigation will probably put a spotlight on Marty Byrdes, which will be problematic since he is running an illegal money laundering business.
One of the best things about the show is how they showcase female empowerment throughout Ozark’s two seasons. By the end of season 2, we saw Marty’s wife Wendy Byrdes (Laura Linney) fully embrace the criminal lifestyle. There’s also Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) becoming the manager of the new casino boat. So, it’s evident women are getting the opportunity for the criminal lifestyle.
Since, the major people that were posing a threat to Marty’s mission are dead, a new villain or villainess has to emerge. It could be anyone and that’s what makes the anticipation of Ozark Season 3 a lot more!
Ozark Season 3 Release Date
The first season of Ozark came into our Netflix screens in July 2017. Then almost a year later season 2 was released. Since it was already official that there’s going to be a season 3 of Ozark, we can expect it to come around late summer this year. Maybe, it will come in September 2019 or hopefully sooner.
