But one of the biggest twists aired after the closing credits, when Foxtel teased a hint of what’s to come in season two next year, with the sole appearance of a black leather glove….
So who will play Joan “The Freak” Ferguson?
TV Tonight understands casting is currently underway for this iconic role.
FremantleMedia Director of Drama Jo Porter said “Prisoner offered up a very rich well of amazing characters to draw upon and the Wentworth writers are very excited about revisiting the character of prison officer Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson in our second season.
“However, for now our storylines for new and existing inmates and staff shall remain in maximum security.”
Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said “The first season of Wentworth has won over audiences and critics. The incredible cast and crew have set the bar high for the second season and plans are in place to continue to enthral both the old guard of Prisoner fans and the new passionate Wentworth audience.”
So let’s hear your suggestions for casting? I’ll throw my hat in the ring for Robyn Malcolm, although she doesn’t have the height that Maggie Kirkpatrick had.
