Here's why Channel 5 need to hurry up and air Wentworth in the UK
Share This Article:
Since the tragic season four finale, fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of Foxtel’s Wentworth - Australia’s female prison drama that’s giving Orange Is The New Black a run for its money. The drama returned on 4th April on Showcase in Australia, but for us unlucky few in the UK, the cliffhangers remain in suspense, as Channel 5 have yet to reveal a broadcast date. The end of season four saw Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack) savagely killed by previous Governor Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) with a screw-driver, whilst her lover Allie Novak (Kate Jenkinson) was hanging on to life in a hospital after overdosing on heroin. Over the past four years Wentworth certainly hasn’t shied away from using dramatic twists, but the murder of Bea Smith had fans reeling across the world. Despite desperately hoping for Bea’s unlikely survival, reports have suggested that season five will begin where season four ended: with Allie Novak in the hospital bed, awaking from her forced overdose and hearing the news of Bea’s death.
