When it comes to prison dramas, few come close the intensity of Wentworth. Season 7 just dropped on Netflix in most regions and if you’re wondering when season 8 of Wentworth will be on Netflix, look no further. Here’s when Wentworth season 8 will most likely release on Netflix.
The popular Australian prison drama has become a huge hit thanks to its tenure on Netflix which began back in 2015 and has seen new seasons every year since. It’s so good, in fact, it ranks in our top 50 TV series on Netflix list.
The series follows a group of women in a female prison and is one of the most-watched titles in Australia.
While you’re waiting for season 8, you may not have seen this behind the scenes documentary that’s available on YouTube.

Without an Australian release, we can only give a broad release window for the moment. The series should return back on the air in Australia in mid-2020 and come to Netflix soon after.
In previous years, Netflix has gotten the new season days after the series finale aired. Season 7 came to Netflix just a day after its season finale on July 30th on July 31st. If it’s the same schedule as last year, we should see the show available in August 2020.

Netflix Canada will likely get the series in either November or December 2020.
Netflix UK and Netflix Australia do not carry the show in any capacity nor are they expected too. Australians can find the show streaming on FOXTEL.
What to watch on Netflix in the meantime
Naturally, Orange is the New Black is a go-to for most Wentworth fans which came to a close with season 9. A spin-off series has been rumored but nothing concrete.
Netflix has a treasure trove of docu-series when it comes to prisons. Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons, The Inmate, Jailbirds, and Girls Incarcerated are all good recommendations.
