Presto Streaming TV and Movies

If you’re looking for a reason to already be excited for 2016, we’ve got some good news. Popular Foxtel drama Wentworth has been renewed for a fourth season, long before the season 3 premiere.

 
 
 
The company recently announced it green-lighted the gripping series for a fourth installment, scheduled to air next year. This will make Wentworth the longest-running Australian drama in Foxtel history.

 

“All of us at Foxtel and FremantleMedia Australia are extremely proud of Wentworth and the passionate bond the series has forged with drama lovers, starting with our discerning Foxtel subscribers and expanding to captivate audiences around the world,” said Penny Win, Foxtel Head of Drama.

While season three is set to air beginning April 7 on SoHo, the fourth installment of the series will premiere sometime in 2016. Production will start in Melbourne later this year.

The show is a reimagining of the iconic Prisoner series, but manages to successfully stand on its own, building a powerful and compelling story. Wentworth became an international success, airing in more than 80 countries, including the U.K. and the U.S. Vulture called it a “ruthlessly dark drama” and praised the show’s ability to hold its characters in human regard, despite the cruelty the series is so famous for.

Moreover, Wentworth even spawned its own adaptations in Germany and The Netherlands. There’s no wonder Foxtel didn’t hesitate to give the show a vote of confidence from so early on.
