Foxtel is headed back to the laundry press for a fourth season of its hit drama, Wentworth.
The FremantleMedia Australia production, a reimagining of Grundy’s iconic Prisoner, will return in 2016 with twelve more episodes on SoHo.
The series is now seen in more than 80 countries, including New Zealand, the UK and US and has spawned its own adaptations in Germany and The Netherlands.
Foxtel Head of Drama Penny Win said “All of us at Foxtel and FremantleMedia Australia are extremely proud of Wentworth and the passionate bond the series has forged with drama lovers, starting with our discerning Foxtel subscribers and expanding to captivate audiences around the world.”
FremantleMedia Australia Director of Drama and executive producer Jo Porter said, “Without wanting to give away any specific spoilers from season three, suffice to say it builds to a fabulous crescendo that in turn has given our season four writers a fantastic launch pad to explore what is next for the complex and compelling characters of Wentworth.
“Our loyal Wentworth fans are not going to be disappointed and I know our amazing cast and crew are going to relish bringing to life these potent stories.”
Production on the fourth season gets underway in Melbourne in the second half of this year with Season Three to premiere Tuesday April 7 on SoHo.
