After leaving viewers in shock at the end of last season, the story resumes in the days following Bea Smith’s tragic death at the hands of Joan Ferguson.
Emotional, psychological and professional shockwaves pound the inmates and staff of Wentworth Correctional Centre. Governor Vera Bennett is under fire from Corrective Services and, with Will on suspension, she is relying more on her deputy Jake, not realising he is now Ferguson’s puppet.
New top dog Kaz has a challenge to restore order amongst the traumatised inmates, though Sonia remains aloof focusing on her upcoming trial. Liz hs to decide if she follows her heart or her head. Doreen struggles with being separated from her son and Boomer supports Maxine as she continues her battle with breast cancer.
On the outside, it falls to Franky to break the devastating news about Bea to Allie.
Executive Produced by FMA’s Director of Drama, Wentworth is Foxtel’s longest running Australian drama, with a passionate fan base here and in 140 territories globally.
