In the first series we saw the Byrde family, with dad Marty (Bateman) working as a financial adviser as well as a money launderer for a Mexican drug cartel. When money gets skimmed Byrde up-ends his entire family to head to the Ozarks in a bid to save his family and repay the cartel.
In the second season, the crime syndicate sends their ruthless attorney Helen Pierce (Janet McTeer) to town to shake things up just as The Byrdes are finally settling in. The stakes are even higher than before and The Byrdes soon realise they have to go all in before they can get out.
How will Season 3 play out? There are no details as of yet but it is thought that Marty’s giant casino boat will be the primary focus of season.
