Wentworth is returning for a ninth and final season and will be on Netflix in multiple regions. Here’s a guide to what we know about season nine of Wentworth and when it will be releasing on Netflix.
Let’s have a quick recap before looking into the final season of Wentworth. The prison drama originating from Australia is a brutal series that reboots an 80s series called Prisoner.
Season eight, which is streaming now on Netflix (in some regions) saw a new leader take over with some characters from the original 80s series returning.
Among the regions that license the series includes:
- Hong Kong
- United States
- South Korea
The ninth season of Wentworth was commissioned alongside the eight and is set to be the final season.
Wentworth season nine Netflix release date schedule
Before we look into the ninth season release, let’s quickly cover how previous seasons have been added.
- Season eight was most recently added in September 2020
- Season seven was added in July 2019
- Season six was added in September 2018
- Season five was added in June 2017
In almost every case, Netflix has gotten new episodes a few days after the series wraps in the US.
The good news is that coronavirus won’t be affecting the production of season nine given that it has already concluded.

At the moment we suspect the series is due to air in Australia in summer 2021 and then arrive on Netflix anywhere between late June 2021 to at the latest, September 2021.
We’ll keep this post-up-to-date as and when we learn more of when season nine gets underway on Fox Showcase.
As for other regions, they should all receive around the same time as the US with the exception of Canada who typically gets season nine a little later.
If you’re wondering if Wentworth will hit Netflix anywhere else unfortunetely as we’ve covered previously, we don’t believe any other regions of Netflix are likely to pick up Wentworth if it’s not already streaming there.
