After three Logie wins, Foxtel won’t be re-commissioning Wentworth

‘Officially Foxtel won’t confirm it – not while the current series is on the air.’

Entertainment reporter Peter Ford has told 3AW breakfast this morning the TV drama Wentworth has been axed, just two weeks after it won numerous awards at the Logies.

“Now today I bring you the news the show’s been axed,” Pete told Ross and John, who were broadcasting from Copenhagen.

“That’s the curse of the Logies.

“Officially Foxtel won’t confirm it – not while the current series is on the air.

“But the word I’m getting from people who work on the show is that they’ve been told, this is it, you’re not returning.

“The set in Newport is currently being dismantled.”
