Update March 2020

Wentworth is set to return for its eight-season, and the production company recently released that the show’s eighth season’s new teaser trailer. The short however extremely tempting clasp shows a faintly lit Joan “The Freak” Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) alone in a dull room, with one threatening message.

“A few insider facts don’t remain covered,” she says before including: “They have no clue what’s coming.”

Foxtel has affirmed the TV WEEK Logie Award-winning dramatization will return, with ‘Wentworth Season 8’ this June. So now we know Wentworth Season 8 release date is set for June 2020. The last time we saw The Freak, she was shouting with sickening dread caught in a container underground, left distinctly with a lighter and a drawing of Bea. Making what we can just accept that was a Kill Bill-Esque getaway, she showed up in the season seven finale living among a gathering of vagrants, probably plotting her vengeance.
