A remake of Prisoner: Cell Block H, it’s set in modern-day Australia and focuses on Bea Smith, when she first enters prison after being charged with the attempted murder of her husband. Bea is separated from her daughter and sent to Wentworth on remand, where she lives in “an uncertain limbo” until she is sentenced. Bea is then forced to learn how the prison works.
The show does a pretty amazing job with lesbians, bisexuals, and transgendered characters.
The series will end in 2021 with it’s 9th season.
There are 20 queer characters listed for this show; 4 are dead.
