Wentworth is an Australian television drama series, which originally premiered on May 1st, 2013. The series is also known as @Wentworth Prison. Set in modern day Australia, the series focuses on Bea Smith (played by Danielle Cormack) as she enters in to the prison system after being convicted by the murder of her husband. The series is executive produced by Jo Porter and produced by Amanda Crittenden. The creators of the series include Lara Radulovich, David Hannam, and Reg Watson. The fourth season of the series premiered on May 10th, 2016.

What is the show about?

The show follows the journey of Bea Smith from her first day in prison after being convicted of murdering her husband. Smith is estranged from her daughter after being sent to the #Wentworth Prison. While waiting to be sentenced for the crime she has been convicted of, she lives in an “uncertain limbo”. Bea begins her life at the bottom of the prison chain, and the show explores the trials and tribulations of her daily life as she learns how to live in prison. The show has been likened to the Netflix series, Orange is the New Black, except much darker and much grittier. The show is based off another older program, titled “Prisoner”.

What have the fans saying about #Wentworth?

There are many fans out there, who state that they are “absolutely in love” with the series and believe it is far better than “Orange is the New Black”. Other fans out there state the @Wentworth is “far more violent” than “Orange is the New Black” and comment that the show has “brought them to tears” on more than one occasion. Other fans have described the show as “amazing” because of the “character depth”, “the storyline”, and the “writing”. While season four just began, fans are already raving about the possibility of a season five. One fan called this series as “addicting as crack”.

Where can I watch the show?

The first three seasons of the show so far are available on Netflix. In Australia, the series airs on the Foxtel Network. Episodes are also released on YouTube weekly after thy have been released in Australia.

Where did we leave off?

The third season of the show consisted of twelve episodes. In season three, we see Bea return to Wentworth prison after her escape in season two and her “revenge murder” of Brayden Holt. By season three, Bea has moved up the ranks of the prison hierarchy to the “top dog” role where she is even “hailed” by Frankie Doyle, who was her previous successor. The end of season three ended in a dramatic showdown after Jess makes a sudden, drastic move.

Season four just began; can we expect a fifth season of the show?

There has not been an official announcement yet as to whether Wentworth will be renewed or cancelled for a fifth season. Our best guess is that the show will be renewed for a fifth season, as the show is very popular and has received nothing but positive reviews. While the show is based out of Australia, it has received international acclaim around the world. What storylines can we expect to see in a fifth season? Will Bea Smith maintain her title as queen bee in the

So agree, Tiffany!! My thoughts exactly on OITNB! Don’t,t even care to see anymore if it. Not very realistic at all, though I did afore Crazy Eyes and Poussey Washington. Such great characters! But, Washington dies and Crazy Eyes can’ carry the show by herself. My LEAST favorite character fast became the main one of Piper!!

I have never been so emotionally invested by a television show. Every season, every episode, surpasses the previous one. The actors and writers are unbelievably talented. I will be a Wentworth fan forever. The Aussie’s are a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. Love that at least a couple of the actors from Wentworth now live in the U.S. Would love to run into them or at least see them in many more projects. Long Live Wentworth!

I absolutely LOVE Wentworth!!!!! Far above Orange for storyline and fantastic, emotional acting. The exceptional acting/manner in which Bea reacted when she learnt of the news of her daughter’s death,,,, was so incredibly real,,,, right down to the howling and almost animal like noises she could not control that came from her core. I cried and cried when I watched,,, as one who has very sadly experienced exactly this,,, the unexpected death of my daughter. I also think the character depth of Vera is a personality many people could relate to, her acting is also outstanding!!!! I find myself at work,,, thinking of what I’ve watched,,,, the characters,,, and what will happen next.
I look forward to a Season 5,6,7 and more!!!!! Congratulations to all involved for a truly engaging wonderful series,,,, thankyou!!!!!!

I agree!! Wentworth is the best show ever. My husband usually doesn’t watch tv shows like that. But he was hooked from the very first episode as I was. My daughter and her husband got hooked also. Episode 4 had me in tears but I wasn’t happy at all how it ended. I can’t wait for season 5 to be released.

So first I just want to say thank you for my fbf for sending me a link every Tuesday so I am able to watch it. I definitely think it’s a lot better than the orange is black… I would rather watch a rerun of wentworth any day. I’m really sad that bee had to die I’m going to go crazy now that I have to wait until may of 2017 to see season 5… I’m praying hard that they keep this show going cause I no its definitely addictive.

I’ve just watched series 4 episode 12. I would like to think bea isn’t dead as Kaz woke up it might be a sign that bea will hold on too or at least I really hope so. The series won’t be the same without bea lol. But it will still be a great series none the less all we can do is wait and hope and see what series 5 brings to our screens.

Just finished watching season 4 of Wentworth. Spectacular!!!! I’m a binge series watcher and have had the pleasure of watching many fantastic shows…Dexter-Showtime, Breaking Bad-AMC, True Blood-HBO and Orange is the new Black on Netflix. I’m totally mesmerized by Wentworth, a series I started to watch on Netflix while waiting for new seasons of my other shows. Now it’s on the top of my wait list. Please make it easier to watch in the US…..I’m dying for season 5!!!!!!

They announced that their will be another season #5 2017 ,but unfortunately Bea Smith will not be in it.,I just can’t see it being the same without her. I waited all year to see Wentworth season 4.and loved every episode except for episode 12.
Season 5 isn’t going to be the same without Bea Smith.im so disappointed. That’s so rediculious.

Wentworth my favorite show ever and is way better than orange is the new black. The storyline is much better and there is much more action going on. There has to be a season 5 this show is too good to stop now. Team Bea all the way ❤️? Also I just want to say this show gives me anxiety, that’s how much of a good show it is lol. My eyes are stuck on the screen and I’m literally yelling at the TV “Oh my god! What’s gonna happen next?!”
