Netflix has issued a second season renewal to dark drama “Ozark,” with an order for 10 new episodes. Made available for streaming on July 21, “Ozark” follows financial planner Marty (Jason Bateman) and his wife Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney). Without warning, Marty relocates the family from the suburbs of Chicago to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks after a money laundering scheme puts him in the crosshairs of a Mexican drug lord. Ten episodes aired in season one.
Netflix also recently renewed freshman comedy “GLOW,” which is a fictional account of a real all-female wrestling TV show from the 1980’s. That renewal came on the heels of the cancellation of the drama series “Gypsy” starring Naomi Watts. Also renewed at Netflix are “13 Reasons Why,” “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” “One Day At a Time,” “Dear White People” and “Santa Clarita Diet”
“Ozark” is produced by Jason Bateman’s Aggregate Films and MRC, which also produces “House Of Cards” for Netflix. The series was created by executive producer Bill Dubuque and Mark Williams. It is written and executive produced by Chris Mundy.
