Critic Reviews for Ozark Season 3

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (8)

Season three is the best season of the series so far. The story line arc works pretty well, with seeds planted early on that bloom in the later episodes.

You could do a lot worse than "Ozark." Just hang on and enjoy.

Mar 26, 2020 | Full Review…

Season 3 is a marked improvement over Season 2, dialing up the pressure and tossing in just enough surprises to keep the audience on their toes.

Here's hoping Season 3 finally wins Best TV Drama. ... We might have to change the opening credit image to an Emmy statue, although in this show, that hardware might wind up crushing someone's skull on a dock.

Jul 18, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The performances are award-worthy, the storylines engaging, and memorable. Season 3 is the best so far!

May 30, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

The season is also elevated by Tom Pelphrey's endearing, frustrating turn as the chemically unstable brother of Linney's character...

Apr 28, 2020 | Full Review…

Everything old is new again in season 3 - the acting, the script, the locales. Janet McTeer and Tom Pelphrey are standouts but it is still the incomparable Julia Garner who steals the show.

Apr 8, 2020 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The 10-part third season is gloriously back on track, with Linney truly coming into her own as the boiler-room fire in the hole.

Apr 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Ozark continues to prove why it's one of Netflix's very best shows. If you're sleeping on this series, it's time to wake up from that slumber and give this show the attention and recognition it so rightfully deserves.

Apr 7, 2020 | Full Review…

What really gives Ozark its grip is its portrayal of the corrosive trickle-down effect of moral hazard, intimated in the show's frequently subdued lighting and hostile green-hell landscapes.

Apr 6, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Is it good? It's not high art, but for what it is -- episodic prestige television in the age of plague -- yeah, maybe it is: Pretty, pretty good.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

Over the course of its three seasons Ozark has grown from a competently enjoyable Breaking Bad wannabe into its own unique thing that can now rightly stake its claim as one of today's best crime thrillers.

Audience Reviews for Ozark: Season 3

    Tv show that has been growing from season to season. For me is a must see, if you love a good drama/police

    Kinda avoided this show because it seemed like a Breaking Bad rip off but it turned out to be pretty damn good.

    Pros: Wow… this season shows why it is one of the best I've seen ever The performances are simply masterful – special mentions in this season to Laura Linney (once again!) and Tom Pelphrey – and of course Julia Garner and Jason Bateman This season has 18 Emmy Nominations!!!! The Finale concludes this season fantastically – sets S4 up perfectly too As with S1 and S2, the writing is just astounding and that is brought to life through sublime acting Tom Pelphrey's monologue at the start of Episode 9 is just amazing, please watch this show haha The final scene of Episode 10… Cons None at all. Overall, ‘Ozark' season 3 is the best season yet. I have nearly run out of adjectives to really describe how good this show is. Like I have just mentioned, the performances are once again fantastic by everyone, but for me the standouts this season is Laura Linney (Wendy) and Tom Pelphrey (Wendy's brother Ben). They own the screen and it is a masterclass in acting. Each episode, once again, gets better and better and it culminates to a finale that perfectly sets up season 4 (which will have 14 episodes!!). I will definitely be looking through articles and watching many videos on this season because I am that in love with this show. The fact the show has received 18 Emmy nominations for this season highlights just how good it is. For me, ‘Ozark' is one of the best shows ever made and certainly one of the best I've seen. That is not a reaction because I've just finished the third season and I love it, I truly believe this is Netflix's best work. *Insert standing ovation* Quote – "Well, today is our beginning" – Navarro Score – 5/5

    Best season yet, in my opinion. When you're invested in the storylines but moreover the complex characters, they both keep the viewer interested in continuing to take the ride that is Ozark. Leaving us with a great stepping off point for season four to come. Not since Breaking Bad have I been so lured in to a show, not that I'm making too many comparisons other than what we gather in the first two episodes of season one. It is has it's own very unique voice. Bravo Ozark team!

    This series is really well done. From the script to the storyline to the acting, it's truly a great show.
  • Jul 30, 2020
    Holy hell, this season....
  • Jul 27, 2020
    amazing good tv show
  • Jul 26, 2020
    Absolutely, utterly the best season of anything I've watched this year so far. I didn't think anything could top season 1 but season 3 knocked the previous 2 seasons out of the park. Tom Pelphrey was fantastic but this season belonged to Laura Linney. She was the main reason I enjoyed this season so much. Difficult to think how season 4 will sustain the punch season 3 packed.
  • Jul 24, 2020
    This might be the most interesting show on Television right now. While it borrows from Breaking Bad quite a bit, it makes plenty of creative moves which makes it a show with its own unique story to tell.
  • Jul 23, 2020
    Ozark raises the stakes in season three by introducing new characters that throw the story for a loop. Season three mixes things up and takes the plot in a new and intriguing direction as it continues to develop the characters nicely. This season of Ozark kicks the level of emotion up a notch as characters are forced to make more tough and personal decisions. As a result, season three has more suspense and unpredictability than the previous two, making this season the best one yet. Once again, the performances do not disappoint as Laura Linney continues to stand out among the rest and Jason Bateman further proves his dramatic talent. Perhaps the most impressive performance of the season, however, is Tom Pelphrey who absolutely knocks it out of the park. More than ever, I am excited for one last season of Ozark.
