The sad news coming up is Season 9 will mark the climax of the top Australian TV drama show, Wentworth, and the good news is it’s arriving really soon. So, all fans gear up to witness the thrill for one last time.
Wentworth is one of the top-rated drama TV shows on Netflix. With a huge audience base, it tops the list of the most popular international shows. The recently launched Season 8 brought the ultimate twist to the plot, and now the fans can’t wait for Season 9. So, here is all we know.
Wentworth Season 9 Release Date
“Wentworth” marked its debut on July 28, 2020, on the Fox Showcase for Australian viewers. However, after a decent response from the Australian audience, creators launched season 8 on the popular streaming platform, Netflix. Within a week, the show became a hit on Netflix, and the audience began to crave for the next season. So, answering the fans’ demands, back in October 2019, the CEO of the Asia Pacific region, Chris Oliver-Taylor, announced that season 9 will be the climax season of the show and will bring a more exciting storyline and magical cast.
As per the sources, the shooting for the last season of Wentworth kick-started in early 2020. However, due to the covid interruption, it was at a pause. This caused a slight delay, but the makers managed to wrap up the shooting within September 2020. However, the makers have not yet highlighted the release date of the ninth season. But, if we notice the progress of the post-production process, we can speculate that the audience is just a few months away from Season 9. However, the Netflix audience will have to wait a bit more, as the show will land on the platform after a few days gap.
Wentworth Season 9 Cast
The last season of Wentworth will mostly amalgamate all the living characters of the show. Susie Porter will play Marie Winter, Leah Purcell will play Rita Connors, Rarriwuy Hick will play Ruby Mitchell, Kate Jenkinson will play Allie Novak. Apart from them, Pamela Rabe will make a comeback in Joan Ferguson’s character. The show may also bring some new faces to add spice to the plot.
