Wentworth series has made a name for itself and it might be one of the most popular series that is available for streaming in Netflix right now. It has received a lot of attention since its release. Fans remain engaged because of its amazing plotlines and the intrigue that it successfully generates. Many won’t know that this show draws its inspiration from an old series called Prisoner which was aired in 1979. Reg Watson deserves credit for the concepts of Wentworth.
Lara Radulovich and David Hannam owe a lot of their creative ideas to Reg. The show is centered on the prison life of Bea Smith. This is an Australian show and it was first aired on SoHo. Each episode of the show is about an hour. Jo Porter is the executive producer of Wentworth and Amanda Crittenden is the series producer. Fans got engaged with the story of Bea Smith when she was committed to prison for murder and now, they are looking forward to season 8.
Will there be a season 8?
There is a good reason for fans to be excited because the Australian series will definitely have a renewal for the eighth season. The eighth season has had a rocky timeline because it was scheduled to be released before. It was supposed to be released in July this year but that couldn’t happen. Then it was postponed to August. Now, the latest updates say that the new season will be out in September. The irony is it is scheduled to be released at the very end of the month, which is on 30th September. When one considers the popularity of the show, its no wonder that Netflix has renewed the series. Fans can have a recap of the previous seasons of the show while they wait. Seasons 1 to 7 are available for streaming on Netflix.
What else should you know?
There is more good news for the audience. There will be a ninth installment of the show. The ninth season will probably come out next year.
