There aren’t many Netflix movies that can compare to Ozark’s excellence. One of those shows that force viewers to immerse themselves in the narrative and plot to connect with the characters on a personal level. However, without actors like Jason Bateman and Julia Garner, who each season stole the show with their outstanding performances, the crime drama would not have seemed complete.
Even if the program lost a lot of its viewers a few months ago, it will go on forever. In the most recent Top 10 rankings from Nielsen, the series was ranked first. 2.6 billion minutes of Ozark’s fourth season’s first half were viewed between April 25 and May 1. And season four’s 491.1 million hours of viewing make it one of the most popular Netflix series ever. But Jason Bateman is no longer simply Netflix’s top dog; he now reigns supreme on other media outlets.
Jason Bateman is the most popular person on yet another media outlet.
