There will be a few new faces on Ozark season 3. Tom Pelphrey joins the cast as Ben Davis, Wendy's capricious and unpredictable younger brother.

Ozark season 3 plot: What to expect
Ozark season 3 picks up six months after the events of the second season finale. According to Netflix's official synopsis, "The casino is up and running, but Marty and Wendy are fighting for control of the family's destiny. Marty preaches keeping the status quo. Aided by an alliance with Helen and drug cartel leader Omar Navarro, Wendy plots for expansion. But when Wendy's brother Ben comes into town, everyone's lives are thrown into chaos."
The casino is the Byrdes' biggest operation yet, and star Jason Bateman told reporters at the Emmys that it "provides us with more opportunities both positive and negative, some that are tempting and some that are calming. That affects the family in interesting ways, and certainly the relationship that Marty has with Wendy."
The casino and the cartel aren't the only headaches for Marty. There's also Cade Langmore's murder at the hands of a mysterious gunman. Suspects include Marty as well as Cade's daughter Ruth and nephew Wyatt. And since Cade himself murdered FBI agent Roy Petty, law enforcement is going to take a keen interest in all involved.
Marty will also have to reckon with his murder of Pastor Mason Young, which he committed in order to save Wendy. They incinerated his body, but also gave his baby to Darlene Snell (who killed her husband Jacob). There's been a whole lot of killing in the Ozarks and it's a tangled web that seems impossible for anyone to escape.
