When will Season 6 of Wentworth be on Netflix?

Wentworth has become Netflix’s biggest prison drama and season 6 has just started airing in Australia and we’re here to tell you when season 6 of Wentworth will be coming to Netflix.

Update: Netflix is now streaming season 6 of Wentworth in most regions. Here’s a look at when season 7 will be on Netflix.

Wentworth is an Australian produced prison drama that’s only available on Netflix in many regions such as the US and Canada. As such, many rely on Netflix to be the new seasons. The series is often compared to Orange is the New Black and while their premises are similar, the delivery and the tone of each is remarkably different. Wentworth is a lot grittier and isn’t as comedy driven as OITNB is.

The sixth season is on the way to Netflix if you already have it streaming on your Netflix. This includes Netflix in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Season 7 has already been commissioned and is likely to start filming at the end of this year.

Netflix US Release Date

Updated: Wentworth season 6 is coming to Netflix on September 5th, 2018.

The series used to air on SoHo in Australia but for season 5 it was moved over to Showtime, thankfully this had no effect on its yearly release cycle nor did it mean the end of new seasons coming to Netflix.

Season 6 was renewed just a few weeks into the fifth season with filming starting soon after. Despite the quick production turnaround, season 6 only began airing in Australia in June 2018. With 12 episodes again, we’re expecting it to wrap up on Showcase in August 2018.

Netflix last year managed to pick up the series just one day after the finale aired and we suspect a similar arrangement for season 6. This means that an August or September 2018 release date on Netflix is most likely at present.

Other Regions

In Canada, they receive the series much later and it’s expected that season 5 of Wentworth will be available in October 2017 and season 6 a year later in October 2018.

If you’re in the United Kingdom, Wentworth is exclusively still only available on Channel 5 but is available on their online service My5 albeit it’s ad-supported.

Netflix in Australia for obvious reasons doesn’t carry the show. Showcase does offer some streaming options
