No plans for more Wentworth on ABC
Changes behind the scenes are likely the reason why no more episodes are coming to ABC.
A number of readers have been asking about further seasons of Wentworth on ABC.
An ABC spokesperson has confirmed it has no further seasons to screen.
My analysis of this is that ABC did purchase seasons before Sally Riley became ABC Head of Drama, Entertainment and Indigenous and before the broadcaster underwent recent funding cuts.
There’s also the question of whether Foxtel decided to halt on-selling its content given it has moved to streaming options.
There was once an argument posed by politicians that anything publicly funded for Subscription TV, via Screen Australia for example, should eventually be given a second window with Free to air… but that never came to pass.
The good news is yesterday Binge confirmed all seasons are now available, including the final.
