Tonight, Ozark will become available on Netflix for streaming at 3 a.m. ET/12 a.m. PT.
The show has received positive reviews from critics thus far, with Vulture describing it as a crime-drama that’s somewhere between Bloodline and Breaking Bad, and the New York Times dubbing it a “bloody mystery thriller, layered with darkly comic ganache”.
The series follows Marty Byrde (played by Bateman), a Chicago money manager who’s been delving into the world of money laundering for a Mexican drug boss. Byrde decides to uproot his life– which means the life of his wife, Wendy, played by Laura Linney, too– to the Lake of the Ozarks, where his business could potentially flourish.
