Season 7 of the multi award-winning drama Wentworth returns with the prison on the brink of imploding as the fiery confrontation between the two emerging titans, Rita and Marie, is imminent after series 6’s bloody finale.
With the case of Joan Ferguson presumably closed, a significantly pregnant Vera and her co-conspirators in the Freak’s demise, Will and Jake, are off the hook, at least for now. Meanwhile, Wentworth’s eclectic mix of misfits are fracturing as the powers of love, deception and revenge threaten to break them apart for good.
Protection is the overarching theme of this latest instalment, with even our noblest heroes becoming morally compromised in their mission to defend the people they love, even if it has deadly consequences. The on-set of dementia finds Liz clutching at any semblance of hope while Boomer has to deal with the residual of her broken family.
Catch up on the story so far with Wentworth Seasons 1 – 6 available to stream now, or watch all month on BOX SETS.
