Renowned Ozark star Julia Garner seems to have a penchant for playing criminals and con-women. We recently learned her next appearance has her reprising a similar role to her Ozark counterpart.

Entertainment reports Garner will star in a new series Inventing Anna, with our first look at it coming next Monday. The series bases itself on both real events and the New York Magazine article “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People.” Garner plays Anna Sorokin, whose character fraudulently pretended to be Anna Delvey, a German heiress.

The official logline gives a sneak peek into what we can expect when the series debuts. “A journalist with a lot to prove investigates the case of Anna Delvey. The Instagram-legendary German heiress stole the hearts of New York’s social scene — and stole their money as well,” it begins.

The logline teases a bit more, stating “But is Anna New York’s biggest con woman, or is she simply the new portrait of the American dream? Anna and the reporter form a dark, funny, love-hate bond as Anna awaits trial and our reporter fights the clock to answer the biggest question in NYC: who is Anna Delvey?”

Additionally, the show features a star-studded cast. Anna Chlumsky, Arian Moayed, Katie Lowes, Anders Holm, Laverne Cox, and Jeff Perry all have roles.

Unfortunately, the current release date and even window are unknown. Nonetheless, Netflix will debut the show in 2022.

‘Ozark’ Ending After Season 4 on Netflix

As one door opens, another closes for Julia Garner it seems. The hit drama Ozark is set to end after its fourth season begins next year.

Netflix states this last season “will mark the final chapter in the Byrde family’s journey from suburban Chicago life to their criminal enterprise in the Ozarks.” Though it was renewed for 14 episodes, it will air in two seven-episode parts, Deadline reports. During a live stream event with the outlet, showrunner Jason Bateman noted his pride in the series.

“We are very proud of what we did, but we would be lying if we said we didn’t have a little virus aid,” Bateman said. “We had some gratuitous timing with the show coming out when everyone had nothing to look at except their walls and television. Hopefully, people liked what they were looking at.”

Netflix’s VP of Original Content, Cindy Holland, agreed with his sentiments, expressing gratitude to everyone involved. “Ozark is a gripping drama that has captivated audiences all around the world and garnered tremendous critical acclaim. We’re so grateful to Chris, Jason, Laura, Julia and the entire cast and crew for all their tireless dedication to the show and can’t wait to see how the Byrdes’ journey comes to a close.”
