Wentworth is an Australian television drama series. The first season of the show was released on 1st May 2013. Later, Fox Showcase bought the rights of the show, and the “Wentworth “was thereafter broadcasted on Fox Showcase. However, some years down the line Netflix bought the rights to the show and now one can watch all the complete seasons of “Wentworth” only on Netflix. We hope that Wentworth Season 9 will also launch soon on Netflix
The show “Wentworth” is a reimaging of the 1979 show “Prisoner” which use to run on the channel called Network Ten. The creator of this show is Lars Radulovich and David Hannam. The script of the show is highly inspired by the “Prisoner” itself. The storyline of “Wentworth” is set in the modern-day and it revolves around the life of the character called Bea Smith. Bea Smith is a prisoner and the initial storyline of the series showcases her initial days as a prisoner. And later on, as we dig further into the series, we see Bea Smith embracing her environment i.e., the prison, and moving higher in the prison hierarchy. However, from the fifth season onwards the show’s focus shifted more on other characters as well, and on their life journey which made the entire show even more interesting.

When Is Season 9 Of Wentworth Releasing? Rumors And Discussion Regarding The Show
The last season of “Wentworth” i.e., Season 8 was released in two parts. The season had a total of 20 episodes. So, the first ten episodes were released in the first part i.e., in September 2020. Later, the second part consisting of another 10 episodes was released on 24th August 2021. The show had officially come to an end on the 26th of October 2021.
However, the fans are still not ready for the show to let go and want Wentworth Season 9 to happen. The show had a large base audience in Canada itself. It was compared to another popular show “The Orange Is The New Black” due to its slight similarity in the storyline of the show.
No wonder both of these shows were a superhit. But defiantly “Wentworth” isn’t coming back for the 9th season. But the show’s producer Jo Porter said in one of the interviews that “They might think about some continuation of the show in future. Maybe with a different storyline and cast.” But that is in the future.
