Wentworth will be entering its seventh season in a few days. The show was renewed for its seventh season in April 2018. The renewal took place even before the premiere of the sixth season. The prison show by Foxtel has earned a lot of plaudits. It had grown into their most anticipated series. The finale of the sixth season left us with a major cliffhanger. The fans were very intrigued by what was going to happen. Many people were taken aback by the final scenes.
We will most likely see the seventh season picking up from right where it left off. In the previous season, we saw Bea Smith killing Jacs Holt. The new season will explore Vera’s life. It will be revealed whether or not Vera will have a baby. We saw that Vera is pregnant with Jake’s baby. We know Vera’s feeling towards Jake so it will be interesting to see how things turn out in the new season.
Another major talking point from the sixth season was the body of The Freak. We saw Vera, Will, and Jake digging up the box which contained the body of Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson. They did find the body but, it wasn’t confirmed if the organization belonged to The Freak. However, Curry confirmed that The Freak wouldn’t be coming back for another season.
The filming for the seventh season began back in April 2018. The show has already been renewed for an eighth season. The eighth season will have 20 episodes. The production and all the other work is done. The seventh season of Wentworth is going to air on May 28, 2019.
