Ozark showrunner Chris Mundy told The Hollywood Reporter in January that the second half of the season would provide “closure” to the ongoing story of Marty and Wendy Byrde’s (Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) money laundering scheme with their business partner Ruth (Julia Garner) amid a federal investigation.
“I always want closure,” he told the outlet. “I don’t want to feel messed with. I want to feel like, ‘OK, that was the end.’ So, hopefully, people will feel closure by the end — whether they like it or not, I don’t know.”
“In terms of tone, we’re going deeper into the family and their bonds,” he added. “Is family the ultimate bond? Is friendship? Is marriage? At what point is it almost unhealthy to stay, even if you love somebody? We’re going to delve into that with Marty and Wendy. Hopefully, the back half will still be fun and exciting, but also really emotional for the Byrdes and Ruth.”
