Hold onto your teal tracksuit pants Wentworth fans because a spin-off series could be on the way.
As season eight comes to a gripping end this year, fans have been promised just one more season of the TV WEEK Logie Award-winning drama, which is set to air in 2021.
Filming wrapped forever (sob!) on the hit series just this month after COVID threw production into turmoil earlier this year.
This year's ten episode run was filmed just before restrictions were put in place, with the final ten – to air next year – being filmed under new COVID-safe measures.

As the filming location for Wentworth is torn down, the show's producer Jo Porter has hinted it may not all be over for the show.
"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.

Pamela Rabe who plays iconic villain, Joan "The Freak" Ferguson also hinted at her desire for a spin-off series.
"I think there's still life in it yet. I wish those stories would keep going," she told the publication.
For now, fans will have to relish the final episodes and season to come, which producer Jo is already teasing is "absolutely heartbreaking, jaw-dropping and exhilarating".
