Tv Season Info

Season 5 of the drama series is back after the shocking finale of the previous season. Ferguson (Pamela Rabe) is put in isolation after Bea's death and everyone wants him dead; Vera's (Kate Atkinson) job is on the line and she can't rely on either Will (Robbie Magasiva), who's on suspension, or Jake (Bernard Curry), now Ferguson's puppet. Kaz (Tammy Macintosh), now Top Dog, tries to reestablish order at the prison while everyone else deals with their own issues: Sonia (Sigrid Thornton) focuses on her trial, Liz (Celia Ireland) must choose whether to follow her heart, Doreen (Shareena Clanton) struggles with the separation from her son, and Maxine (Socratis Otto) battles breast cancer.

Critic Reviews for Wentworth Season 5

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

Wentworth has endured into its fifth season without skipping a beat, it is why the series has been able to build on itself each episode never wavering from its dark, dank commitment to being dark and dank.

It recalls a similar storyline from Satisfaction, another glossy Australian drama in which a terrific female cast was too often let down by cringe-inducing writing. It's not a great comparison to invite.
