Deadline is reporting that Alfonso Herrera, Adam Rothenberg, Bruno Bichir, CC Castillo and Katrina Lenk have signed up to join the cast for the upcoming fourth season of Netflix drama series Ozark.
The series focuses on Marty Byrde, a financial advisor-turned-money launderer for a Mexican drug cartel, who moves his family to the Lake of the Ozarks to make good for the cartel. The synopsis for the third season is as follows:
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.
Alfonso Herrera (whose credits include The Exorcist and Queen of the South) will be playing the role of Javi Elizonndro, a member of the Navarro family who walks a fine line between playing the obedient lieutenant and scheming to take over his uncle’s cartel. Adam Rothenberg (whose credits include Ripper Street and Castle Rock) will be playing the role of Mel Sattem, a cop who fall from grace who now works as a P.I. He enjoys the chase and won’t rest until he unravels the truth. Bruno Bichir (whose credits include Nacros and Party of Five) will be playing the role of Navarro’s Priest. Navarro’s confessor and confident; he works for the cartel because he deeply believes he belongs where God is needed most. CC Castillo (whose credits include Outer Banks and Stargirl) will be playing the role of Sheriff Leigh Guerrero, Missouri law enforcement who refuses to play on anyone’s terms but her own. Katrina Lenk (whose credits include Tommy and Little Voice) will be playing the role of Clare Shaw, CEO of a leading biopharmaceutical company, whose judgement is corrupted as she learns the true cost of power.
The report also states that Felix Solis and Damian Young, who both recurred in the third season as Omar Navarro and Jim Rettelsdorf respectively, have been promoted to series regulars for the upcoming season.
The new additions will join a cast that includes Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, Sofia Hublitz, Skylar Gaertner, Charlie Tahan, Jessica Frances Dukes, Lisa Emery, John Bedford Lloyd and Joseph Sikora.
