TV can transport us anywhere.

Want to journey to fantastic and mythical lands? No problem, there are plenty of shows you can binge right now at the push of a button.

If comedy is more your thing, not to worry either. You can be howling with laughter in no time.

In real life, it goes without saying that most people don’t want to spend any time in prison. Nevertheless, TV can take us there, immerse us in the drama.

But the real beauty? You haven’t even left the sofa until you need to put the kettle on.

The likes of Prison Break and Orange Is the New Black are popular favourites of the sub-genre, but plenty of people would argue that it doesn’t get any better than Lara Radulovich, David Hannam, and Reg Watson’s Australian gem, Wentworth.

Since premiering on SoHo in 2013 it has amassed an impressive following and season 9 has been a triumph so far. There’s still much more ground to cover though, so when is the Wentworth season 9 episode 5 air date?

Fox Showcase

Wentworth season 9 episode 5 air date

The fifth episode premieres in Australia on Tuesday, September 21st 2021 at 8:30 pm on Fox Showcase.

It is called ‘The Unknown Terrorist’ and will follow up on the events of ‘Judas Kiss’. Technically this is the second part of season 8, but you’re likely to hear it referred to as season 9.

If you’re watching in the UK rather than Australia – where it is retitled Wentworth Prison – then you can catch the episode on 5STAR on the very same date at 10 pm BST.

Although both territories can watch it live, sometimes plans get in the way of quality TV. Fortunately, streaming is here to save the day and Australian fans can access the episode on Foxtel Now. Finder notes that Fox Showcase is available with the Essentials pack, priced at $25 a month.

If you’re a new customer then you can benefit from a 10-day free trial, and to make things even better, all of the previous seasons are on Foxtel on-demand or Foxtel Now too.

As for those in the UK, simply stream episodes on the My5 streaming service, where new episodes will be added weekly once they hit screens on 5Star.

How many episodes are there?

Season 8 part 2 has been titled ‘The Final Sentence’ and is made up of 10 episodes in total.

Quite aptly titled, we might add. We hope there weren’t any fans holding out hope for another season. It has already been confirmed that the current batch of episodes will conclude Wentworth, marking the end of an era.

As for when the finale may reach us, if there are no hiatuses to disrupt the schedule then we can expect to see the last episode towards the end of October.

“I’m not prepared”

While fans have been enjoying the recent string of episodes, some have taken the time to weigh in their thoughts on Twitter.

It’s clear that the ending will be a hard pill to swallow. Check out a selection of tweets:
