Teal Tuesdays are back! Wentworth confirms the premiere date for its final season with an exciting new teaser

Cue the countdown!

By Maddison Hockey
Sound the alarm! Wentworth's final season is upon us and not only has Foxtel dropped a painstakingly short yet tantalising teaser, but the network has confirmed the premiere date, too.
Dubbing it the 'final sentence', Foxtel confirmed this morning that Wentworth would return for the last time on Tuesday August 24th.
In the clip released alongside the announcement we can see Vera, played by Kate Atkinson, bound and gagged hitting a duress alarm in the prison.

As the footage flashes on a big screen, the show's leading ladies, aka our beloved and loathed prisoners, stand in front.
A warning plays over the footage: "Attention compound, this is a code black" before a prisoner can be heard asking, "You got any last words?".
We. Have. CHILLS.
With this sadly confirmed to be the award winning drama's final season ever, fans are sure to be in for a wild ride.
However, all may not be completely said and done just yet with talks of a spin-off series recently emerging.
Seriously, chills. Foxtel
When filming wrapped for the final season last year it didn't take long for the production site to be dismantled, not long after which the show's producer, Jo Porter, hinted at some kind of continuation.
"The Victorian Government have plans for that site, we always had to move out of there this year," Jo told the Herald Sun's SMARTdaily.
"But we've relocated sites once before," she explained, pointing out the first three seasons of the prison drama were filmed in Coburg in Melbourne.

And the jail cell doors certainly haven't been slammed shut on a possible spin-off.
"Never say never."
"It feels like this chapter of the show has finished. This season has had a big spike in audience domestically. We're getting new audiences all the time.
"There's a few characters who survive, there are possibilities but at the moment we're focusing on this being a beautiful bow to draw a close to this chapter," Porter hinted of a possible spin-off.
