Another nod to the legacy of the great Reg Watson….
Wentworth fans will be able to check out Turkey’s adaptation of the Foxtel hit from Friday after reports Netflix has picked up the worldwide rights to the series.
Netflix inked the deal for Avlu with Fremantle, who produce the original Australian. Netflix also screens Wentworth in multiple territories. Adaptations were also made in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Avlu has been a ratings hit since its launch on Turkey’s Star TV in March 2018. The second season, which wrapped in May, drew a peak audience of 3.8 million viewers for the channel. Season three is set to premiere in Turkey later this year.
Meanwhile Wentworth is due to go before cameras again shortly in Melbourne, with Foxtel confirming the final 20 episodes to play out across two more seasons.
