WENTWORTH: THE FINAL SENTENCE Starts Tuesday August 24 at 8.30pm on FOX SHOWCASE
Get those teal tracksuits ready, because we have the date that the final instalment of Wentworth is coming to FOX SHOWCASE
Grab your teal trackie, your Monte Carlo biscuits, some state-approved teabags and get ready – we’ve got the date for when the final 10 episodes of Wentworth are coming our way.
When Teal Tuesdays return to our lives, we’ll finally get to see how the globally popular prison-set series comes to a close, with fans on the edge of their seats after the last instalment.
There’s a lot to tie up from our last glimpse inside the prison, which left us with Top Dog Allie (Kate Jenkinson) viciously stabbed and left for dead on the shower room floor, the realisation that new inmate Judy Bryant (Vivienne Awosoga) is far more dangerous than we’d first been led to believe and the arrival of Sheila (Marta Dusseldorp) riling up the one person at Wentworth you really don’t want to upset – Lou Kelly (Kate Box). Of course, we also have Joan Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) finally fully aware of her true identity, following a period of amnesia, uttering that ominous line at the close of the finale: “I am The Freak.”
“The wonderful thing is that she does have this big secret now,” Rabe revealed after that shocking episode aired. “And the question is: how does she live with that, who knows about it, how do they find out and what’s it going to mean for their survival rate?”
Box also gave us a taste of what to expect when we caught up with her at the start of the year.
“The end of season eight, part one, and the beginning of season eight, part two, is pretty explosive,” she said. “There are some extraordinary acts of betrayal and revenge. Some of it was quite terrifying to shoot, actually, which was fun as well. It does really set up for a massive final season.”
Trust us, we’re more excited than the Wentworth inmates are when a shiv fight is about to go down in the laundry.
To get back in the teal zone, we suggest you catch up on previous seasons of Wentworth, which are all available to watch On Demand. Then you’ll have no excuse for not being prepared once August 24 rolls around! We don’t want to have to send Smiles (Jacqueline Brennan) around now, do we?
