Season 1 (2013)Edit

Season 1 Premiered on May 1st, 2013 on Foxtel's SoHo channel. Factoring in repeat showings of the event, it became the most watched Australian Pay TV premiere. 

We focus on Bea's arrival at Wentworth Correctional Center, and her transition from a scared housewife, to an influential prisoner. It also re-introduces original characters Doreen, Lizzy, Franky, as well as some of the correctonal officers like Vera, Fletch, Meg, and Erica, and their journeys throughout the series.

Season 1 as well as focusing on the prisoners, also shows how it's not necessarily the prisoners who are living in a prison, and that the staff are mentally feeling like prisoners with their own lives as well.

Season 3 (2015) Edit

Wentworth is an Australian TV Drama produced for Pay TV. The show itself is inspired by classic TV show "Prisoner", or "Prisoner: Cell Block" H as it is known outside Australia. Described as a re-imagining, the show although inspired by the original, is a re-telling of events in a different way.
