Wentworth if a massive fan-favourite on Netflix and will definitely be returning to Netflix but won’t be until 2019 at the earliest. Here’s everything we know about season 8 of Wentworth including when it’ll release on Netflix around the world and what to expect from the new season.
There’s no doubt that the Australian prison drama is a must-watch for any Netflix. The series draws a lot of similarities to Netflix’s Orange is the New Black but the truth is the two series have gone in two completely separate directions. Wentworth is a gritty, harsh and dramatic prison drama that sees a lot more violence when compared to Orange is the New Black. New seasons have been coming to Netflix over the past few years.
The series first airs on Foxtel in Australia before being added to Netflix around the globe staggered shortly after the series has wrapped.
Is there going to be a season 7 of Wentworth?
Absolutely! Season 7 was actually announced towards the tail-end of season 6 in April 2018. There was never any doubt that Foxtel would renew Wentworth for season 7. Production began straight away which means there’s once again going to be a tight turnaround for release.
What to expect in season 7
Season 6 ended with one of the most dramatic and gruelling endings yet. The season culminated in the big showdown between Rita vs Drago. The series also was getting towards the end of the interrogation for who helped an inmate escape. In season 7, a new top dog has taken over the prison so we’re likely to see big changes on the horizon. For one, we need to find out who’s going to be the new number 2 for Marie now that Drago is out of the picture. Most fans are now hoping for a big fight between Rita and The Freak.
When will Season 7 of Wentworth be on Netflix?
No official release date has been announced yet.
On the announcement of season 7, the press release said that the series will definitely be out in 2019. The past 6 seasons have consistently released in early summer so we’d expect it to begin on Foxtel between April and June 2019.
Netflix adds the series consistently at the end of the summer and beginning of the fall. That means we’re currently expecting season 7 of Wentworth to be on Netflix in September 2019.
We’ll be updating this post as we get closer to the release date of season 7 but for now, let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to the next season dropping on Netflix.
