Unfortunately I believe we lost the old thread for Wentworth as the server went down half way through the show's forum move. Here's the new home.

Bugger! Thanks for your efforts, @David T. Cole.

I believe the last thing I posted in the forum was the excellent news that we are getting three more seasons of Wentworth. Season 7 has already been filmed and will screen in 2019, and seasons 8 and 9 will follow in 2020 and 2021.

Intriguing new Season 7 teaser on the Wentworth FB page today. I can't wait!

Awesome, thanks for posting that. They didn't give away too much,so yeah, it is intriguing. If I were to guess going by the trailer, perhaps Boomer may be getting paroled?  

I think I read Netflix will be getting it in August sometime.

Another fantastic promo on the FB page today. Mr Jackson looks rough.

So I watched the first 3 episodes of the new season. Here's my 2 cents.

There's a new psychologist. I think he's maybe supposed to be a new love interest for Vera. But he's bland and dull and possibly the dullest. Any scene with him in it is dull.

Remember when Boomer was crazy, and intimidating, and interesting? Her big story line so far? Finding a male hooker to come to the prison to fuck Liz (for her bucket list.) It is as stupid as it sounds.

Jake is trying to go straight and win back Vera and I almost like him. Almost.

Remember Bea and Joan Ferguson and Frankie? Remember how awesome the stories were. Yeah, now we're stuck with Kaz and Rita and Ali. Ali is pointless. I wish she'd died before she had a chance to hook up with Bea. I love Rita but she needs a storyline. And Kaz is OK but she was only ever a Bea Smith wannabee. Now she's just acting all schmoopy because Will Jackson likes Marie better. OMG!

And Frankie, amazing Frankie. This show misses Frankie the most. I'm not sure it can  survive the loss.

Got to see the first ep of Season 7.  I just knew that

Spoiler

Rita's fiancé was gonna get killed at the end there. You could feel it coming.

Quote

Ali is pointless

I still like her but they messed up her character and yeah, kind of pointless these days. The last time I thought she had something meaty to work with was season 5. Last season, not so much. Hoping for a better season for her but I'm not holding my breath.

Question- so wait, I remember Allie broke up with what's her name around the last ep or so(didn't like those two together,blah) and now

Spoiler

she's with Marie? Seems like I missed something somewhere.

This show will never be as great as the first 4 seasons(I'll give you S5 too because I did enjoy that one) but I will still watch because it's still "enjoyable" enough to me.   I am holding on to my hopes that Liz and Boomer will be here until the series is over, because if they're not, then the shreds of the remaining cast will be gone and I will be very unhappy.

I think the best thing about the ending of Episode 4 is that I did not see it coming. At all. This show can still surprise me! I was inches away from giving this show up.

This is going to have massive ramifications. Hope the writers don't f it up.

Yes! It was really shocking, and best of all, we don't know whodunnit as there are a few possible suspects.

I agree with some of your comments above, @zibnchy, about the new season. The biggest difference between this season and earlier seasons, I think, is that everything is so deadly serious now. I mean, there was always major serious stuff happening, but it was somewhat leavened by Boomer and Franky, and even the Freak at times. Lately we've had the occasional funny line from Boomer, but not much else. We need a balanced diet, please, writers!

*Not looking at previous posts, can't look, can't look*

We have a date when season 7 is coming to Netflix- July 31.

I had read it would be sometime in August, but they moved it up a little soon since there's only 10 eps from what the article says.

I think I will wait until July 31. Now if it was a couple of seasons back, I would have not been able to wait, I would have had to watch on line. It's still a really good show though, just not the same as the good old days.  seasons 1- 4 were the best.  But I did like 5.  S6 was just ok.

Our show won the 2019 Logie award for the Most Outstanding Drama on Sunday night. This is a peer-voted award, and the show was up against some stiff competition, so it's a great achievement. The Logies are sort of a cross between the People's Choice Awards and the Golden Globes. See if you can recognise everyone all glammed up!

No spoilers, but episode 9 had my wife and I clenched for the entire episode and then gasping at the ending.  And now we have to wait another week to see the resolution!

This was quite the season.

Agree. The last couple of episodes have been among the show's best ever. The season wasn't grabbing me until episode 7, and now I'm All In again!

OMG Wentworth fans! The series 7 finale is one of the best and most thrilling episodes they've ever done. Shock upon shock upon shock. I'm literally breathless. My brother and I literally made this sound over and over at the very end:

Yes!

There are a few people complaining about the ending, asking 'How?' and 'Why?', but I'm reserving my judgement for now. It was simply an awesome hour of television and will live long in my memory.

Yep! I just hope they write a season 8 that's believable and makes sense as to what happened. If it doesn't, I'm going to be pissed that they even went there!

I'm sick to my stomach they went there.

Spoiler

I almost quit watching because of "Joan the Batman Villain", and she's the LAST person I want to see return. 

I want more Franky, not

The Freak.

SPOILERS BELOW.

Oh, disappointment!  I know they never really confirmed the character was dead, but I thought maybe they were over it by now.  Everything she did was OOT and then some.  The actress is great and really sold it, but why do the good-ish characters all die and the bad ones just keep going like the Energizer bunny?  Even if caught in an explosion or fire, they'll barely have a small burn on one pinky finger!

That was really sad about Kaz.  When she first came in I hated her, but she was kind of my "Bea Lite" substitute.  I didn't see it coming but afterwards felt so stupid.  She was pretty happy and had found out some secrets about Marie so of course she was about to die! 

Great to see Franky but too bad it couldn't be longer.  I don't want the character to be in prison again but now all we have left of the season 1 prisoners is Boomer!

What a horrible thing to happen to Liz.  The idea of that has always terrified me.

Ok just blew though season 7 on Netflix and what the heck.....in a good way

Besides the obvious Joan Fergusson sighing which mostly is meant to effect next season more then this one.   I have a bunch of stuff to say.

I love this show because it isn't afraid to kill of major characters.  Kaz's murder was quite shocking actually.  That being said it did make sense because it move a bunch of other stories forward in some major ways.  The top dog position is a dangerous one isn't it?  How man of the top dogs over the last seven seasons are dead now?

Meeting Boomer's mom really explained Boomer a whole lot.  Wow that woman was a piece of work.  I wasn't too upset to see her die.  I WAS however upset when Boomer killed Liz.  A kind gesture as it was.  I cried a little at that scene.

I really liked Rita and am wondering if the show is done with her.  The cop who would be top dog would actually be an interesting storyline.  I like her a lot more then I like her sister who is kinda just there.

Damn Allie shooting Marie and killing Tom

Brody.  I am wondering how it will effect her next season.  She has never really been a top dog but more a top dogs girl so seeing her have a new tougher rep might be interesting.

Fun an exciting season.

Great season! Loved that ending. I just knew it was too good to be true all along, re: Ferguson. So happy the baby and Vera are ok.

For now.

Why wasn't Boomer smart enough to kill Liz when no cameras would be recording? My goodness Boomer.

She looked straight at the camera at one point.  I think she was hoping someone would stop her.

Wow. After a pretty underwhelming season, that was an awesome last two episodes (other than the very, very end).

Can't believe Jackson is still a guard though! Is there a single guard left who hasn't done something deeply corrupt?

WOW, what a rollercaster of a finale!

Sean Brody suddenly became interesting. 😉

So glad Vera and the baby are ok; bummed about Liz as having Locked IN Syndrome is one of my worst nightmares/fears... Poor Boomer.

Ferguson... I will reserve judgment for now, but "OMG what what what" was my initial reaction at those last 3 seconds. Rita better be back!

Just finished this morning. I thought it was a really good season but that final moment was horrible. Nobody needs her to be there, and it's back to the absurdity of her teflon situation.

I’ve gotten to season 3....I hated when they killed the bird.  The show is starting to depress me so I may step back for a bit.  I still kind of like Liz and Maxine but I’m not sure if that is enough to hold me.

I've only finished the first season, but went looking for more information. I cannot figure out why Bea, who has yet to be tried and convicted for the attempt on her husband's life, is in general population of a prison. I understand the need for high security, but no way would she be housed in a prison at this point.

This article I found describes Bea as "convicted," but it's wrong. http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20190219-wentworth-the-gripping-ground-breaking-australian-drama

Also in the "No, that doesn't happen in real life" category:

     ---Bea having a contact visit with the husband she tried to kill;

     ---new inmates paraded through common rooms and groups of inmates before being assigned and escorted to their assigned cell;

     ---inmate phones with a longer than is safe metal cord;

     ---a skeleton crew of a staff;

     ---no visible evidence of programs besides work that maintains the institution;

     ---one season in, 10 episodes, not a religious service or chaplain or any volunteer in sight. One mention of "a chaplain" for Bea's distress. 

Bring on Season 2.

Finished bingeing last night. Even though most of my favorite characters are no longer on, I loved it—flaws and all—it’s just such fun entertainment for me. I kept wanting to smack Will, though. As usual, he was a dummy.

I like (and get annoyed with) this show because of the high turnover rate.  It’s not going to keep a character that makes no sense to keep just because the audience likes.   I really applaud the showor f brutality killing off some of the shows fan favorites and then writing a season of repercussions from that death.

Liz and Boomer had a long and complicated history.  It is partly on Liz that Boomer got an extended sentence so for Boomer to actually say she wished Liz was her mother and then mercy kill her is the kind of beautiful and heartbreaking story that this show sometimes does around the brutality.
