It's the news that UK fans of Wentworth Prison have been waiting for.

Season 2 is coming to Channel 5

We're excited to confirm that the second season of Wentworth Prison will air on Channel 5 in 2014.

Wentworth Prison takes viewers back to the Wentworth Correctional Centre, where season one introduced them to the likes of Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack) and Franky Doyle (Nicole Da Silva).

Set in the violent, dangerous environment of a modern prison, with struggles with inmates and insights on their fractious personal lives, Wentwort Prison is a graphic, edgy reboot.

Season one is still on air in the UK, but will leave viewers with a nail-biting cliff-hanger ending they will have to see resolved in the next bout of compelling storylines and character twists. Plus, season two viewers will be introduced to Wentworth Prison’s menacing new officer: Joan "The Freak" Ferguson (Pamela Rabe).

Wentworth Prison season 2 is due to air on Channel 5 in 2014.
