Cult fav Australian prison drama Wentworth is officially coming to an end!

Foxtel has confirmed to TV Tonight that the upcoming ninth season of the popular TV series will officially be the last.

The final instalment of the show will contain 20 episodes, with filming expected to commence in the upcoming weeks.

Thankfully though for Wentworth fans, we’ve got plenty of time to say goodbye! It’s reported that the upcoming episodes will be spread over a two year period and two seasons.

“There are 20 episodes spread over two seasons,” said Foxtel’s Executive Director of TV, Brian Walsh, to TV Tonight.

“We’ve got some interesting names to announce who will be part of Wentworth’s final two seasons. We’re really happy with the team we’ve assembled.”

Season seven was originally supposed to be the final season, however in December 2018, it was announced that the show had been renewed for an additional 20 episodes.


And we have no doubt that this new ending of the show will be just as thrilling as the rest of the show!
