Season 3 of the internationally acclaimed Australian drama Wentworth will premiere Tuesday April 7, at 8.30pm EST, on Foxtel’s SoHo channel.

As the story resumes four months have passed since Bea Smith’s bold escape and ruthless murder of Brayden Holt.

Having returned to Wentworth Correctional Centre, Bea has assumed the mantle of Top Dog, hailed by all – including Franky Doyle herself – as a worthy successor. Franky may no longer be Top Dog but she’s not about to forget how Liz lagged on her, and Boomer is set make Liz pay. Doreen’s baby bump is growing and Ferguson is watching her closely. While Vera’s instincts are more attuned to Ferguson’s scheming, Will is none the wiser despite Fletch’s apparent hit and run accident.

Wentworth stars Danielle Cormack as Bea Smith, Nicole da Silva as Franky Doyle, Pamela Rabe as Joan Ferguson, Kate Atkinson as Vera Bennett, Celia Ireland as Liz Birdsworth, Shareena Clanton as Doreen Anderson, Katrina Milosevic as Sue “Boomer” Jenkins, Aaron Jeffery as Matthew “Fletch” Fletcher and Robbie Magasiva as Will Jackson. Supporting cast includes Socratis Otto as Maxine Conway, Georgia Chara as Jess Warner and Jacquie Brennan as Linda Miles.

Wentworth is a FremantleMedia Australia production for Foxtel. The series is distributed by FremantleMedia International and is seen in more than 80 countries.
