Netflix has released the full-length trailer of 'Ozark' season 2 and it seems that Marty Byrde's life is going to take a very grey turn. In the trailer, which is set to a cover of David Bowie's song 'The Man Who Sold the World' Jason Bateman's character Martin 'Marty' Byrde and his wife Wendy (played by Laura Linney) sink deeper into the shadows of drug cartels, as they in the form of lawyer Helen Pierce (played by Janet McTeer) hone closer to them. 

The trailer begins with Wendy's voiceover where she claims in a terrified voice, "Another man is dead." Marty tells his wife, "People make choices, Wendy. We don't have to weigh under those decisions." At the same time, Marty's world seems to fall apart as he tries to keep his children safe putting his morals to test trying to protect his family from the Snells, the cartels and the new deputy Ruth Langmore (played by Julia Garner).

The trailer sets the stage for the events to take up from where the last season had left them, and maybe this time things are going to be harder for the Byrde clan as they are now required to be more methodical with covering up their money.

Jason Bateman, who is also the executive producer of the show, mentioned that writers were now trying to boost up the storyline of the second season, after the show's massive success in the first season. He said at the TCA (Television Critics Association) summer press tour on Sunday, "Any time you do something and you find out people are enjoying it, it is a huge relief and it provides great encouragement...The writers, they understand the audience deserves an escalation…If there’s going to be more episodes, you don’t want redundancies.”

Bateman has always been an admirer of the works of Ron Howard and Brian Grazer with Imagine Entertainment. He said, "Currently Netflix covers all of that and then some...And they also happen to be run by a group of people I’m personally really fond of. They couldn’t be more supportive and the culture there is very much the same.”

In the upcoming season with Del out, Helen Pierce comes down to make things more difficult for Bryde just when he was settling down. Marty and Wendy try to maintain a balance between their family and the risky business that they have indulged in, and as the stakes go higher they soon realize that they will have to bring together the family in order to put things in line. The series has been produced by Bateman's Aggregate in association with Media Rights Capital for Netflix.
