Oscar nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs, The Honourable Woman) is joining the cast of Netflix drama series Ozark for the show’s second season.
The Netflix original series stars Jason Bateman as a Chicago financial advisor, who has been quietly laundering money for a drug kingpin (Esai Morales), and must quickly uproot his wife (played by Laura Linney) and children (played by Sofia Hublitz and Skylar Gaertner) and move the operation to The Ozarks, after his partner is caught cheating the business.
There, he bumps heads with both a local drug dealer whose business he inadvertently interrupts, and a clan of ruffians, led by their 19-year-old niece (Julia Garner), who want his money, all the while avoiding the eye of a tenacious FBI agent (Jason Butler Harner).
He must complete his laundering, to save the life of his family, as they struggle to find their own path in this seemingly foreign way of life.
McTeer will play a Chicago based attorney with links to the cartel. In making a deal with the devil, she becomes a potential threat to the Byrdes.
