Ozark: Season 2 (2018)



Critic Consensus: Engaging and entertaining -- if not particularly challenging -- Ozark's descent into darker waters is kept afloat by another superb turn from Laura Linney.

Critic Reviews for Ozark Season 2

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (9)

My hope that "Ozark" would get its sea legs in season two was for naught. Most of what was good in season one remains good, most importantly Linney... But then there are a few excruciating characters and subplots this time around.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Absent is the manic humour that was Breaking Bad's magic ingredient. Even more so than in the first season, Ozark is grindingly grim and the characters are more or less without redeeming features.

Aug 31, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, for Ozark, the pressure to keep various narrative plates in the air has led to a much slower pace and some increasingly ludicrous plot twists.

Aug 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Awkward plotting aside, the Byrds' attempts to combine ordinary family life and multimillion dollar criminal endeavours lead to bitter humour.

Aug 27, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The degree to which "Ozark" slams on the breaks is disconcerting; the downshift in pacing creates an antsy viewing experience that transitions into blandness.

The master stroke was the messy, awful relationship Ruth (the astoundingly full-on Julia Garner) had with her vile ex-con dad (Trevor Long).

The plot moves swiftly and with urgency, and character growth, especially among the females, was well-earned...The season is mesmerizing and merciless.

Nov 6, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The actors bring some top-tier performances and bring an urgency to the events. With a deep bench, even moments with side characters feel exciting and dangerous.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Netflix's addictive southern soap about drug cartels operating out of the backwoods of redneck USA is smart, endlessly eye opening and beautifully made.

Oct 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The world gets bigger, the stakes get higher, and the violence more frequent and dangerous. It expands and grows without ever bogging down or dragging.
