‘Wentworth’ Season 6 Gets June UK Air Date On 5Star
It’s been a long time coming, but Australian prison drama ‘Wentworth‘ Season 6 finally has a UK premiere date on 5Star this month.
The new season is set to pick up just moments after the end of Season 5 as we find out the fate of the Melbourne women’s prison’s most devious, likeable and ruthless inmates. Will Joan survive being buried alive? Will Franky be recaptured? Will Sonia survive the poison Liz which put in her tea?
Almost all of Wentworth’s inmates and officers are stunned by the escape of known enemies Franky and Joan. However, Allie finds some solace that Bea’s death has been avenged. Viewers will remember that she let Joan take her place on the escape, then tipped off Will Jackson, who buried her alive. Will and Jake Stewart are relieved to be rid of such a dangerous enemy, but the truth weighs heavily on their consciences.
Meanwhile, as Sonia’s life and Vera Bennett’s career hang in the balance, Kaz Proctor resumes her role as top dog, and Liz is targeted after Boomer pieces together her part in Sonia’s poisoning.
Season 6 will also see the admittance of three charismatic new women prisoners. Rita Connors (Leah Purcell) is a spirited indigenous woman affiliated to the Conqueror biker gang. She is on remand for armed robbery. Marie Winter (Susie Porter) is a powerful and feared criminal matriarch behind a sex trafficking and prostitution racket. However, this is her first time in jail and she could be a potential top dog. Ruby Mitchell (Rarriwuy Hick) is a hot-headed, feisty young woman at Wentworth for assault and resisting arrest, putting her promising boxing career on hold.
‘Wentworth‘ Season 6 comes to 5Star on Saturday, 23rd June 2018 at 10pm.
