FremantleMedia Australia’s prison series Wentworth has been commissioned for a second series, following the first season which premiered on Foxtel’s SoHo channel. Also, Wentworth attracted sales from New Zealand’s TVNZ and the U.K’s Channel Five.

Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said, “Wentworth‘s bold storytelling has attracted a record-breaking response from our Foxtel customers. This drama, tailor-made for Australian subscription television, is capturing local and international attention sparked by its Prisoner heritage but fuelled by Wentworth‘s own high production standards and the terrific performance of the ensemble cast.”
