Wentworth Season 8 confirmed! Will Frankie be apart of it?
Wentworth, season 8 has been confirmed and is set to Episode will air 2020. But the big questions that fans have on their mind is “will Frankie and her love be a part of the new season of Wentworth?”
Truthfully, nothing has been released on the cast but we can at least we have the latest on the hit Australian TV series.
In case you missed the whole season, Wentworth has been rated one of the top jail themed shows to hit streaming services in America and Australia, the first season revolves around a cast who face their prison sentences together.
There are so many heartbreaking scenes, ones you would never imagine. Further, it’s even more intense when you are a fan of a character who ends up at the wrong place and wrong time.
Bluntly, don’t be surprised if you find yourself screaming “NO!”
What you thought you knew about jail, you probably didn’t and Wentworth gives an inside look at what it looks like inside an all female prison. Everything from “top dog,” to the snitch.
The first season of Wentworth gave us some of our favorite characters like Bea Smith who is locked up and awaiting trial for the attempted murder charges against her husband.
Smith had to learn quickly how the prison life works. Although, it was a life she was not use too, she quickly learned the ropes and even became top dog.
Many loved Bea Smith for her attitude, her love for others and the way she played her character perfectly.
The series Wentworth is based on the iconic show Cell Block H, it pushed boundaries and still has quite the following today. In fact, Cell Block H aired over three decades ago and honestly, is just as entertaining, if not more than some of the shows we see trending on Hulu or Netflix.
According to ahmetkozan on IMDB the story of Cell Block H takes it up a notch for today’s generation.
Fans of the iconic Prisoner Cell Block H series, which pushed boundaries over three decades ago and still boasts a loyal following worldwide today, will remember Bea Smith as gutsy and fearless, ruling Wentworth Correctional Centre with an iron fist.
But who was Bea Smith before prison? How did a wife and mother from the suburbs become a top dog without rival?
Wentworth Prison is a dynamic, often confronting, drama series that begins with Bea’s early days in prison. Set in the present day, it is a modern adaptation of Prisoner Cell Block H that contemporizes legendary characters and their stories for today’s audience.
This series takes the viewer inside to an uncompromising environment that explores the politics of women in a world without men, and how such a threatening experience both challenges and often changes those confined and working behind the razor wire.
The audience will be introduced to Bea all over again and meet her allies and enemies in the form of iconic inmates: Doreen Anderson, Liz Birdsworth and Franky Doyle, and there are new faces such as Jacs Holt, the ruthless matriarch of a crime family who now reigns over Wentworth. Favorite offices will also return.
Meg Jackson carries a shameful secret; Vera Bennett, the well-meaning officer who discovers everyone has a price; Erica Davidson, the crusading Lawyer and Matthew Fletcher who believes in retribution rather than rehabilitation. And a new face, Meg’s husband Will Jackson, whose past still haunts him.
Each episode explores an individual character’s back story, providing an insight into what makes them tick and the circumstances that led them to Wentworth. In doing so we discover that the difference between an inmate and an officer is sometimes simply geography because they’re all prisoners in surprisingly different ways.
Like the original Prisoner Cell Block H, Wentworth Prison is, at its heart, a series about survival, a character drama featuring women living in a pressure cooker environment. Despite the rivalries and power struggles, this family of misfits and rebels are forced to forge unlikely friendships and allegiances if they want to survive their time inside.
What an amazing remake, don’t you agree?
Most importantly, the show truly tugs on the strings of your heart. Your emotions will surprise you and it’s insane when you’re sitting there rooting for characters which most people would consider “bad news.”
