Some secrets don’t stay buried…
Hold up! Wentworth’s eighth season will be with us in June. And a new cast photo reveals a very Freak-y development!
Stop the (steam) press! We now know when Wentworth’s eighth season is due to hit FOX SHOWCASE.
You’d better spend the next few months familiarising yourself with all the teal trauma we’ve seen over seven seasons, as the new instalment has been confirmed to arrive in June.
By then, we might have just about recovered from the incredibly tense siege that was the culmination of last year’s seventh season, which many fans and critics have dubbed the best ever of this Logie-winning drama.
Robbie Magasiva, whose character Will Jackson had the misfortune of being acting governor while the siege occurred, says it’s certainly going to be a prickly time for Will – especially considering the siege was brought about by the inmate he’d been romantically involved with: namely Marie Winter (Susie Porter). And that’s only the beginning! “I think things in the broader picture of Wentworth Prison will change,” he tells us.
And if the siege itself wasn’t tense enough, fans won’t forget that final shot before the credits rolled – seeing Joan ‘The Freak’ Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) standing by the side of the road. Considering we’d thought she’d been buried alive, it was one almighty mic-drop!
With Rabe appearing in the cast shot for the new season, everyone (inmates, prison staff and viewers included) will surely need to watch their backs. Magasiva will only tease us with this: “Everything’s hunky-dory until The Freak comes back.”
