Wentworth Season 10 Update: Is it Renewed or Cancelled?

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.

Executive Director Stated Something Regarding The Ending Of Wentworth

Brian Walsh, the executive director of television at Foxtel also stated something on this matter.

“Wentworth will leave an indelible mark on the international television landscape. We are incredibly proud of the success of this much-loved drama, not only has it been wholeheartedly embraced by our audience here in Australia but across the globe.”

He also added, “I would personally like to acknowledge the extraordinary cast, creative teams, writers, and directors who have brought this television phenomenon to life, it has been an incredibly rewarding journey.”

Throughout its duration, the show has gained critical acclaim. In fact, the series is Foxtel’s most popular and highest-rated locally produced drama. Episodes of Wentworth have aired in a total of 173 countries during the last eight years. It even made Netflix’s top 10 most popular series list in the United States.

Peek Of Heartwarming Goodbye Messages By Cast & Crew Of Wentworth

Do you want a sneak peek at the cast and crew of Wentworth’s heartfelt goodbye messages? Although the goodbyes were emotional, the series will live on in the hearts of its cast and viewers.

The one mentioned below was also pretty emotional.

Wentworth’s Ending 

Before ending the article, let’s go through what happened at the end of the series. Well, the final episode started when Lou is still planning to blast her way out of prison. Ferguson overhears them and informs Rita. Rita confronts Lou, and the confrontation quickly turns into a brutal brawl. During the scuffle, Lou’s phone falls out of his pocket, containing the recordings.

Rita tries to talk Lou out planting the explosives in the slot, but Lou is adamant. Ann arranges a fictitious transfer to the courthouse for her.Ann boasts that she already knows everything. Outside the prison, a bomb detonates, destroying the majority of the unit.

Rita, Lou, Ruby, and Boomer are all able to flee the scene. Allie, on the other hand, is still stuck under the rubble. She tries to retrieve the mobile phone.

Judy’s impaled remains are discovered among the rubble when Vera regains consciousness. Ann had known about the attack and had planned Judy’s killing. Vera is strangled by Ann. Ferguson saves Vera just as she passes out by yanking Ann off her and snapping her neck, instantly murdering her.

Vera is carried out of the prison to safety by Ferguson. She tells Vera outside that she rescued her so Grace would not be without a mother. Vera expresses her gratitude. Ferguson then turns away and goes away into the darkness. Jake and Will are relieved when Linda declares her missing, believing she is dead, but Vera remains silent.

Lou tries to go through the boundary gates, but Rita catches him. She is apprehended and charged with the crimes she committed. Allie is transported to safety.

Allie announces she was able to retrieve the phone for Rita and Ruby, establishing their innocence, as Rita, Ruby, and Boomer greet her. They’re all overjoyed and the show ended on a pretty good note.

We know that it’s pretty upsetting that such an amazing series came to an end. Well, it doesn’t hurt to re-watch the show right? Do let us know if the ending of this series was satisfying enough for you.

  1. I can’t believe it’s over😭 I’ve been watching from the beginning. Not many shows grab me like Wentworth did. Great show, good story line, characters you start caring about now it’s ALL over 😭😭.
    Maybe they can do a show where when they know Ferguson is missing they man Hunt her. Hmmm what do ya think??? 🤔

    • I can’t believe Wentworth is over. My gosh it was the best show I have ever watched. It was a totally addicting and I would give anything if they would do another season.. Best show ever hands down..

  2. I hate the show is over. They should do another one…I still have so many questions. Where did Ferguson go? Where were the prisoners sent while they rebuilt Wentworth? Were they all together or did they have to individually fend for themselves at separate prisons? Did Boomer have the baby? What happened to the daycare at Wentworth? Is Will officially off the hook for trying to kill Ferguson?

  3. I am sad to see that their is no more episodes. I have watch the Wentworth series twice now and there was never a dull moment.

  4. Such a fantastic show. I’m going to miss it. ♥️ the whole cast. Amazing actors and the writing was excellent. Hope they have a change of heart and come back.

  5. This season was not satisfying for me; at least not the ending. I want to see if Rita and Ruby get to be free based off the information on the phone. Alli almost died trying to get the phone at least she could see what was on it. Wentworth is an awesome series and I don’t want it to end. Not like that.

  6. What a great series. Really binge worthy. The quality of actors was great. All amazing professionals! Yep, even Ferguson. Lol love ya Ruby but always liked the bad guys. So, great job Pam!
    I’m gonna miss you guys. You became like family. Good luck to all in future endeavors!

    • More shows like Wentworth please. .Hey Booms, we are gonna miss you.

      I’m so glad Boomer is having a baby and getting the man in the ending. .

      I’m going to miss everyone on the show .I gonna watch it all again!

  7. Awesome show—couldn’t stop binging. Great plot lines and amazing characters—though I’m sad how it ended—left many questions—where will the prisoners go? What will become of Ferguson? I’d love to see Boomer have her baby! I’m going to miss this show!

  8. Stupid ending of you ask me don’t know what happen to Joan don’t know what happened to Vera and her baby don’t know nothing just a stupid ending

    • Nobody asked you. You don’t need to know for sure, but it’s inferred that Joan has escaped as she walked into the darkness rather than being shown as being captured like Lou.

      We can equally assume that Vera’s baby is safe, else she would have been looking for the child.

      The ending isn’t stupid, you just aren’t able to read between the lines.

  9. I hate this show is ending. I watched all 8 seasons in just one week. I couldn’t stop watching. I wish we had more of this show. It’s probably the best series I watched in the past 2 years.

  10. absolutely loved this series. my husband and I binged it for about 6 months the whole thing. sad to see it end. this is the best TV show I have ever seen. the line “i have no love for Lou Kelly, and she killed my goldfish” was hilarious and brilliant. kudos to the actors and everyone else connected to this amazing show! Booms will be a great mom 🙂

  11. I want to see if the two sisters got set free, if boomer had her baby, if Ally ever learn how to walk again, and what happened to Joan. Please make another episode.. I love this show..

  12. Loved it all! Fabulous actors!
    Ferguson was a great villain! I hated her so much!
    Wishes for amazing successes for writers, creators, actors, etc, in the future!
    I will miss ya!

  13. I really didn’t care much for Ruby and Connors storyline.

    Allies, Boomer, Vera, Jake and Ferguson, those stories I did care about and I guess there was closure on those. Not the one we were hoping for, or as detailed, but it was a good ending all together.

  14. Aww did not want wentworth to end. Amazing show, great acting.
    They could continue this story line on. Like Rita and ruby getting off, boomer has her baby, Ali finds love. Etc

  15. It’s very sad to find out that there will not be a Season 9.

    This was the best Series and hope that they reconsider and continue to make a Session 9

    Thank you to all the cast and crew. You all where amazing.

  16. I hate that its over but we enjoyed the ending knowing our good group got out. Vera was saved and Jake and Will. Loved seeing the funny parts ending and for us it was a good ending and we are satisfied

  17. Maybe an annual movie to continue the saga, like Downton Abbey has had and proved very successful! Please come back to us! So saddened that it is over. Love you guys…WV Mama!
