Ozark recently ended the run of Season 2 on Netflix. Although there’s no official confirmation on Season 3, things look insanely positive for the show. Jason Bateman who stars as the lead in Ozark and also directs a couple of episodes went on Ellens show and spoke of how he’d like to take a break with Ozark and spend some time with his family and kids. Jason Bateman is confident about a Season 3 (I mean Ozark has found a fan in Lebron James), what he is doubtful about is the Series returning too soon. He’s taking a sabbatical from work till March of 2019. Bateman due to his crazy work schedule has been away from his kids, and he feels he needs to introduce himself to his kids again.
So if we take Bateman’s word for it, if he’s not going to do anything till the March of 2019, Season 3 is sure to get delayed! It takes a while six months to shoot Ozark, which would mean that we are looking for a late 2019 release or even an early 2020 Netflix release for that matter.
Ozark Marty Byrde’s Breaking Bad:
There are numerous theories that suggest that Season 3 would be darker for Marty Byrde. At the end of Season 2, we saw Byrdes land into more troublesome situations. Jason Bateman plays money launderer, an ex financial advisor who has a mammoth task of cleaning his Mexican mob leader boss’s dirty money. As a result, he finds himself at the pit of the trouble, entangled in scores of illegal activities. The show keeps us on our tenter hooks with it’s gripping storyline. If you assume things to be finally working well for Byrde, somehow they take a pause and Marty finds himself tight where he started.
Ozark traces the take of Byrde from Chicago to Missouri in a move to protect himself, his life threatening danger. This follows the murder of his partner for laundering money of a top notch criminal. In Missouri Marty Byrde tries all he can do keep his family safe and to somehow escape the trouble he has landed them in. And all his attempts fail. Now he’s been trying to deal with things by being underground and what not! But brand new spoilers suggest that Marty is gonna Break Bad. Does that ring a bell?
Hell yeah, I am talking of Walter White from Breaking Bad. AMC’s Breaking Bad stole the show with a steller storyline and cast. Could Marty do what Walter did? I mean both were initially shown as meek guys, both have gotten themselves in trouble.
