Let’s Save Wentworth!

Wentworth (or Wentworth Prison as it is known in some international markets) is an award winning Australian prison television drama.

It has won a number of coveted awards including AACTA, ASTRA & Logie awards, as well as Australian Writers Guild and Australian Directors Guild awards.

Wentworth has been telecast on the Foxtel network since its inception in 2013, initially on the SoHo channel and now on Showcase.

Unfortunately, news has broken today (Friday, July 6th) that Foxtel has made the decision not to renew the show after Season 7.  This is devastating news for the legion of dedicated fans who have supported the show from the very beginning.

It is also a surprising decision given the recent Logie awards success for the show, as well as the purchase of the first five seasons by the ABC station in Australia.

If you, like me, want to see the show renewed for another season, please sign this petition, and contact Foxtel via phone (13 19 99), email (enquiries@foxtelcom.au) or social media (@foxtel @wentworthonfoxtel @showcaseaustralia), particularly if you are a subscriber.

Also, repost @joantheprofound (on Instagram) post re saving Wentworth and tag your local stations (ABC, SBS, Netflix, Stan etc.) and streaming services in the hopes that one of them can pick it up.

Let's get behind the amazing cast and crew that bring us edge of our seat drama!
