Wentworth if a massive fan-favorite on Netflix and will definitely be returning to Netflix but won’t be premiering in Australia until 2020. That means the release of Wentworth season 7 on Netflix is going to be a long one.
There’s no doubt that the Australian prison drama is a must-watch for anyone with 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 of Wentworth
Season 6 ended with one of the most dramatic and grueling 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?
Despite a quick renewal for Wentworth season 7 by the shows new producers at Showcase, the release date in Australia is currently pegged to be “broadcast through 2020 and 2021.”
The series has been extended to 20 episodes for season 7 as opposed to its traditional 12 episodes, however.
Given that it’s set to be broadcast throughout 2020 and 2021, it’s likely that Netflix won’t actually get Wentworth season 7 until at least 2021. New seasons have tended to arrive in the middle of the year so between May 2021 and July 2021 is our current estimate.
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.
