EXCLUSIVE: With that Wentworth ending shocking viewers last week, TV Tonight can now reveal the Foxtel series had filmed an alternative ending with original Prisoner cast members.
Val Lehman, Colette Mann and Fiona Spence secretly filmed cameo appearances last year for the series, in a further sign the show was bowing out.
But after it was renewed by the subscription TV provider the new ending was shot, exciting fans with a returning favourite.
A Fremantle spokesperson confirmed to TV Tonight, “At the time when we were wrapping up Series 7, we did film this standby scene in case we didn’t proceed as a tribute to where it all began. In the context it was written, it won’t feature in Series 8, however it was a privilege to have the ladies on set with us that day and it was a memorable moment for all the cast.”
Filming will resume in 20 new episodes from October, expected to screen across 2020 and 2021.
