Ozark: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

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 (8)

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.

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.

Ozark does divide opinions sharply, and viewers who loved the first season will jump feet-first into this one.

August 29, 2018 | 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.

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

August 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.
