Another installment of the most followed prison series Down Under just ended last month. But fans of the hit show are already missing Teal Tuesdays. Some of them have even begun guessing what would happen behind bars next? What’s one thing everyone should look forward to when Wentworth Season 5 finally returns?
The show’s fourth season finale might have taken viewers on a dark, twisted and unpredictable ride. However, the show has been pretty consistent about one thing. The hit Foxtel series has always featured a culturally diverse cast. Will the next season really introduce more aboriginal characters?
Neither Foxtel nor the show’s producers have confirmed these casting rumors. However, Kiwi actress Frankie Adams did say being on the show has helped her reconnect with her aboriginal roots. Adams joined the Wentworth cast last season as new inmate Tasha Goodwin.
“Having been brought up by my Samoan mother meant I didn’t have much knowledge on the subject. However, I got to learn a lot about that culture while I was there,” she told Stuff New Zealand.
“I asked a lot of questions. I did read a lot, searched online for different articles about certain experiences and talked to a variety of cast members about what they’ve learnt.” Will more aboriginal characters join the series in the next few episodes? No word as of yet to confirm this. Stay tuned for updates.
Meanwhile, some fans are still reeling from the events of the fourth season finale. The prison did just lose its top dog when — Spoiler Alert! — the Freak stabbed Bea multiple times with her own screwdriver.
Some fans still choose to be in denial about Bea’s death. But the show’s executive producer herself confirmed actress Danielle Cormack’s exit from the series.
Who could possibly replace her as the prison’s top dog? What does the show’s fifth installment have in store for Allie, the Freak, and the other Wentworth staples? Fans might have to sit tight and wait a little while longer to find out.
Wentworth Season 5 will return to the small screen next year.
