The Australian remake to 1980s soap Prisoner Cell Block H is back for a new and even more gripping season. Wentworth Prison returns for its seventh season with a grittier storyline that’s bound to leave you at the edge of your seat, especially following that bloody season 6 finale.
This new season finds fan-favourite characters, and two emerging titans, on the brink of imploding as an impending confrontation looms on the horizon. If that’s not enough, producers for the show have also confirmed that this new installment will be pushing boundaries even further with a bolder storytelling and highly compelling performances from its dynamic ensemble. Tune in to continuing new episodes from Wentworth Prison season 7 on Channel 5’s 5star.
Wentworth Prison TV Preview
On top of Rita and Marie’s imminent fiery confrontation, this season also finds a significantly pregnant Vera — and her co-conspirators in the Freak’s demise (Will and Jake) — off the hook, at least for now, in the case of Joan Ferguson. Meanwhile, Liz’s on-set of dementia finds her struggling to hold on to any semblance of hope, while Boomer deals with what remains of her broken family.
This eclectic mix of misfits will find themselves on the verge of being permanently fractured as the powers of love, deception, and revenge threaten to take over their logic and emotions. Given that, it seems protection will be the overarching theme this time around — with even the noblest of characters becoming morally compromised in their mission to take care of the people they love, lest there be deadly consequences.
