Wentworth to wrap with next 20 episodes
Exclusive: Filming to begin on bumper-size batch of final episodes, tipped to screen until 2021.
EXCLUSIVE: Filming on Wentworth is due to resume shortly, in what will be the show’s final batch of episodes, but fans will still see the show on screen for some time to come.
“There are 20 episodes spread over two seasons,” Foxtel Executive Director of TV Brian Walsh recently told 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.”
That will take the series to 9 seasons expected to conclude on air in 2021.
Fans are also pumped for the return of Joan Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) who made a surprise cameo in the Season 7 finale. Viewers were shocked to see her alive after her bones had seemingly indicated she had been buried alive.
“We planned it all along,” Walsh teased.
Foxtel also has local drama Upright to screen over summer with euthanasia drama The End expected in early 2020.
