After an almost two-year wait, hit crime drama Ozark finally returned for a third series on Netflix on Friday — and with the country currently in lockdown, many fans have already binged their way through the latest run.
The series, which stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, introduced a number of new characters for the third season — and it appears to have gone down a treat with viewers so far.
A host of fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the new episodes, with the show attracting praise for its performances, storyline and especially for its shock ending.
One fan tweeted, “Ozark series 3 has blown my mind… literally the best series on Netflix” while another added that the “third season of #Ozark is definitely the best one.”

Another viewer said that while she hadn’t been a huge fan of the show’s earlier seasons, the latest run was a step up, describing it as “get-up-at-5AM-so-I-can watch-an-episode-before-the-kids-wake-up amazing.”
I thought the first season of #Ozark was mediocre wanna be prestige TV. The second season built into something legitimately worth watching. This third season, so far, is get-up-at-5AM-so-I-can watch-an-episode-before-the-kids-wake-up amazing.

And another praised the show’s treatment of female characters, writing, “They are there to show their smarts, their brains and their guts. Thanks for making females humans. Great series!”
What I like about #Ozark is that the females aren't there to showcase their boobs or their booties. They are there to show their smarts, their brains and their guts. Thanks for making females humans. Great series!!

Meanwhile, fans were left shaken by the ending — with many immediately wanting to know when a fourth series might be expected to arrive on the streaming platform.
One viewer went as far as to say “The last episode of Ozark season 3 might have been one of the best season finales in TV history” while another claimed, “I’m going to need Season 4 of #Ozark to hurry up, because I’m not sure how we are supposed to wait & see what happens next after that crazy, unpredictable, adrenaline rush of a season & THAT ENDING!”
Okay I’m going to need Season 4 of #Ozark to hurry up, because I’m not sure how we are supposed to wait & see what happens next after that crazy, unpredictable, adrenaline rush of a season & THAT ENDING! My heart rate should return to normal any time now. Well done, as always. pic.twitter.com/HPwdIHQ6dT
