Ozark season 3 has returned to Netflix for a new 10-part series and fans are looking forward to seeing the cast return. The crime drama series focuses on one family in particular, the Byrdes, who have got themselves caught up in money laundering. There are some picturesque shots in the new series, so here is everything you need to know about the filming locations.
Where is Ozark season 3 set?
The new series sees a time jump and is set six months on from the previous season, which ended with Marty (played by Jason Bateman) discussing plans for a new casino.
At the start of the new series the casino plans have moved forward and everything seems to be up and running.
But Marty has bigger ideas for his casino and does not tell his wife the full story, and they are left fighting to keep their family safe.
The series is set in the Ozarks, a group of mountains in Missouri in America, and it is made up of two mountain ranges.
Fans of the series will recognise the stunning green rolling hills and high peaks in the backdrop of many of the episodes.

Where is Ozark season 3 filmed?
Despite its name, the series is not actually filmed in The Ozarks, which may come as a surprise to fans.
The series is set at the waterfront resort at the Lake of the Ozarks, but most of the locations for filming are actually in the Atlanta area.
Lake Allatoona and Lake Lanier are instead used to depict the picturesque waterfront throughout the series.
A set was also created in Georgia and it is based on the Alhonna Resort, with some other scenes being filmed in Chicago.
Filming locations in Georgia include Canton, Woodstock, Norcross, Marietta, Braselton and Atlanta.
According to Hollywood Filming Locations, The Little River Grill was transformed into Blue Cat Lodge which features in the series.
The new series welcomes some new characters as well as the recurring characters from previous series.

Speaking about the new series Netflix said: “It’s six months later, 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.”

Bateman directed four episodes of the first season and two episodes of season two, with the first series released in 2017 and the second in 2018.
Back in October 2018 a third series was announced, which means fans have been waiting for more than a year for the new series.
Bateman suggested he has also directed some of the episodes in the third series, as he asked fans on Twitter whether he should start work on a series three.
Bateman had tweeted to announce the confirmation of a third series back in 2018, saying: “I’m happy for me, but concerned for Marty – it’s official OZARK 3 is on its way.”

The actor took part in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter and was asked about how he directed himself in the series.
He said: “Knowing that I’m doing more than just the acting it allows me, I hope, to hit this tonal target I wanted to when I read the first two episodes.
“It was a directing hope for me. I just love this world and I wanted to know what it looked like and sounded like.”
The series has had mixed reviews but Bateman has been praised for being able to perform both in front and behind the camera in a busy schedule.
