Linney, who plays Wendy, ascribes the cast to a rhythm after three seasons, but she admits that she likes each season the same. "Familiarity has something. You can get started right away," she said. Garner, who won an Emmy as fiery Ruth in season 2, talked about creating the character directly from a mock scene she had made during her audition, and said she had a certain "hope" in her that she carried around like the show.
Mundy said the secret sauce was the craze for the two families in central Ozark. "You get to know a little more about them every year and every episode, so if you follow this simple formula despite all the craziness, something good is likely to happen," he said.
