“Everyone is talking about similarities between Ozark and Breaking Bad, but I see a lot of parallels between this show and the Game of Thrones,” one Reddit user wrote.

“Players are constantly switching sides,” continued the Redditor. “People JUST DIE.”

The writers of Ozark have no qualms about killing off main characters, much like Game of Thrones. Each season of Ozark brings several new deaths, and fans are getting used to it. Some scenes mimic Game of Thrones, according to supporters.
“There was a shot of Helen [Janet McTeer] looking over her yard and the lake smoking a cigar, and that just screams Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) drinking her wine,” another fan added.
Fans also compared Frank Cosgrove Jr.(Joseph Sikora) to Joffrey Lannister (Jack Gleeson) as well as Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery) to Cersei Lannister.

Ozark’s Jason Bateman won the Emmy award for outstanding directing in a drama series over three Game of Thrones directors’ nominations.
