Oz Season 3 (1999) is released on Jul 14, 1999 and the latest season 6 of Oz is released in 2003. Watch Oz online - the English Crime TV series from United States. Oz is directed by Adam Bernstein,Alex Zakrzewski,Nick Gomez,Jean de Segonzac and created by Tom Fontana with Ernie Hudson and J.K. Simmons. Oz is available online on HBO Max and HBO Max Amazon Channel.

OZ chronicles McManus' (Terry Kinney) efforts to control the inmates of Em(erald) City as well as the drug trade and the violence. There have been many groups of inmates during the run of the show and not everybody makes it out alive. There are the gangstas (Adebisi, Wangler, Redding, Poet, Keene, Supreme Allah), Muslims (Said, Arif, Hamid Khan), Italians (Pancamo, Nappa, Schiebetta), bikers (Hoyt), Aryans (Schillinger, Robson, Mark Mack), Christians (Cloutier, Cudney), Latinos (Alvarez, Morales, Guerra, Hernandez), gays (Hanlon, Cramer), and a pile of others (the O'Riley brothers, Keller, Stanislovsky, etc.). And a great "everyman" character called Beecher offers a good look at a normal man who made one tragic mistake. Besides the regular inmates, there are guest stars such as Method Man, Luke Perry, Master P, Treach, etc. and a bunch of prison staff doctors (Dr. Nathan), a nun/psychologist (Sister Peter Marie), a bunch of guards--some honest, some crooked--and, of course, the warden, Leo Glynn. The whole thing is narrated and held together by inmate Augustus Hill, who provides the show with context and some sense of theme, and ties everything together nicely.

Washington Post
Oz remains full of treachery, terror and sudden moments of quixotic tenderness. No one could be blamed for wanting to hide behind the couch until it's over, but those who do watch are likely to find themselves gripped, buzzed and spellbound.

New York Post
It is a soap opera set in a land we never, never want to visit but that nonetheless is not that foreign because it lies just around the big and little corners that get cut every day.

Boston Globe
The makers of this series have little interest in good unless it's about to be soiled. Not for the squeamish, Oz is a soap opera set in hell.
