Ozark Season 2 Premiere Date, Trailer Revealed: "What Is the Endgame?" It's time to go back to the Ozarks. The show that paired Laura Linney and Jason Bateman in many, many dark scenes -- as in visually dark -- is almost back. Yes, Ozark, the Netflix series so many actors and your parents said they loved, is returning for a second season on August 31 and the Bryde family can't leave the drama behind. "We've done a lot of things. Things that we said we would never do," Linney's character says in the intense trailer. "People make choices, Wendy," Bateman's character says. "Choices have consequences." Season two of Ozark stars Bateman, Linney, Julia Garner and Marvel's Jessica Jones veteran Janet McTeer. In the second season, according to Netflix, Marty Bryde (Bateman) and his family continue to navigate life within a drug cartel. Del (Esai Morales) is out, and Helen Pierce (McTeer) is in to shake things up. Meanwhile, Marty and Wendy (Linney) struggle to balance family life and the dangers that come along with being involved with the Snells. "The stakes are even higher than before and the Byrdes soon realize they have to go all in before they can get out," Netflix said. Bateman received a Golden Globe nomination for his work in the first season. Linney and Bateman were both nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards for their work in the batch of 10 episodes. Season one of Ozark is now streaming. Season two premieres Friday, Aug. 31 at 12:01 a.m. PT only on Netflix. (Eonline)

Daria Reboot in the Works, But Not Necessarily on MTV. Daria! Aeon Flux! The Real World! Made! All your favorite MTV show could be making a comeback...just not on MTV. According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV has launched MTV Studios, the goal being to revive and reboot classic shows, to sell to other platforms. Think how Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy became Queer Eye on Netflix. The new Daria, which is being called Daria & Jodie, comes from writer Grace Edwards of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Inside Amy Schumer. According to THR, Daria & Jodie follows Daria Morgendorrfer and her close friend Jodie Landon, who take on the world with all the satire you came to love in the first series. The original series, a spinoff of Beavis and Butt-Head, ran for five seasons from 1997-2002 on MTV. "The story [Grace Edwards] wants to tell of Daria is different, it's about Daria and Jodie and two close friends taking on the world today and what's happening in our culture at large," MTV's Chris McCarthy told THR. Jodie appeared in the original series and was friends with Daria, but the character's best friend in the first iteration was Jane Lane. Daria doesn't have a home yet, but McCarthy said there has been interest and he thinks "the best place for it isn't necessarily cable but more with an SVOD partner where we can have better storytelling and allow more flexibility and be able to go deeper than traditional cable may allow." In addition to new versions of Daria, Aeon Flux, The Real World and Made, MTV is also developing new reality shows. There's The Valley, think The Hills and Siesta Key -- it's about a group of 20-somethings in Arizona, and MTV's Straight Up Ghosted, which gets friends back together after they've been... ghosted. Do you want to see Daria return in a new series? Head over to THR to hear more about MTV's plans. (Eonline)

Dietland's Kitty Is "Finding Her Voice" in a Badass Julianna Margulies Speech. Dietland is not messing around. On the AMC show, a terrorist group calling themselves Jennifer has started murdering men who have assaulted women, and as the head of Austen Media, Kitty (Julianna Margulies) has decided to embrace them and their manifesto, putting it on the cover of every women's magazine they own. In the clip, exclusive to E! News, Cheryl (Rowena King) isn't so sure she's making the right decision, saying the men will get fed up and "war of the sexes won't be a metaphor anymore." But Kitty's not here for Cheryl's dramatic worries. "Come on, tell me you haven't thought about it," she says. "All those years of being demeaned, and harassed, and screwed over just because we wanted to sit at the table with the big boys? You know these guys. They don't listen to 'please' or fairness. Tell me you never wished you could pull the trigger." Plus, you know, it might make her richer. Kitty's decision may not actually be pulling the physical trigger, but it's certainly a choice that may or may not play out in her favor on next week's episode, which also finds Plum (Joy Nash) trying out the dating world as the next part of her new program to extremely mixed results. Dietland airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on AMC. (Eonline)

TV Ratings: Fox Leads Otherwise Quiet Wednesday. NBC drama 'Reverie' gets low in its fourth week. Fox nabbed a Wednesday win, with few others offering up much in the way of competition. Back-to-back episodes of Gordon Ramsay efforts, MasterChef and 24 Hours to Hell and Back, were steady with their previous outings, scoring respective 0.9 and 1.0 ratings among adults 18-49. The night's only other original episodes were scarce. The Originals earned a 0.3 rating in the key demo on The CW, while CBS put out a new Code Black (0.7 adults). Over on NBC, the fourth episode of Reverie continued to slip, earning just a 0.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.8 million viewers. (Hollywood Reporter)

World Cup: Brazilian Fans' Sexually Offensive Chant Causes Uproar. A local women's rights activist demanded an apology and punishment for the fans. A South American soccer chant has sparked controversy at the World Cup. Russian women's rights activist Alyona Popova has sent a petition to the country's interior ministry and Brazil's embassy in Russia, demanding an apology and punishment for Brazilian soccer fans who sang a sexually offensive chant with an unsuspecting Russian woman, the local online magazine reported. Popova's move was triggered by a video surfaced on Telegram messaging service a few days before, in which a young Russian woman, who apparently doesn't understand Portuguese, is seen trying to sing along with some Brazilian fans. What they are actually singing turns out to be translated as "Russian pink vagina." Popova said in her petition that the incident "debases that woman as well as all Russian women." The Brazilian fans should "publicly apologize for sexism and violation of Russian laws" and should also be punished under Russia's administrative code, she added. Technically, the fans could be fined for verbal assault. The video first caused uproar among social media users from Brazil, who translated the chant, and then their sentiment was shared by people in Russia. Overall, however, incidents like this have been few and far between since the World Cup kicked off a week ago. However, Russian women were also upset by the Russian division of Burger King's online ad campaign encouraging women to get impregnated by World Cup foreign players. After a storm of criticism on the social media, the global fast food chain pulled the ads and apologized. (Hollywood Reporter)
