Let’s be clear about something before we go into whether you should wait for Wentworth Season 10. The show has only has eight seasons thus far.
Wentworth was commissioned for an eighth season consisting of 20 episodes and premiering in two parts. The first part from July to September 2020, and the second part from 24 August 2021, with its final episode on 26 October.
So, we’re talking about the renewal of Season 9, but many people are under the impression that they’re waiting for Season 10. I hope that it’s clear now. Let’s talk about something basic regarding this series. And then later we will get to the main point of this article.
The show is a modern remake of Network Ten’s Prisoner, which premiered from 1979 to 1986. Wentworth was created by Lara Radulovich and David Hannam based on Reg Watson’s original concept.
The series is set in modern day and follows Bea Smith from her early days in prison to her ascension to the top of the institution’s hierarchy. From the fifth season onwards, the show moved to a more ensemble-oriented format.
Wentworth Won’t Be Renewed For Another Season
All wonderful things ultimately come to an end at some point. In the case of Wentworth, it’s the same situation. The series ended in 2021 after the second half of the eighth season. Making it the longest-running hour drama series in Foxtel history, with a total of 100 episodes, according to an announcement released in October 2019.
It was also stated that the eighth season will be the show’s final season. Viewers who have been anticipating the renewal should not hold their hope any longer. Because there will be no Season 9 or Season 10 (according to some viewers) of the show. The series came to an end. And the ending was pretty satisfactory for the viewers.
