Wentworth season 4 is set to make its Australian premiere on May 10.

The show, adapted from Prisoner, which ran on Network Ten from 1979 to 1986, is a FremantleMedia Australia production for Foxtel and has been sold to more than 90 countries.

The story resumes four months after the events seen in the fiery season three finale. 

The women of H block are returning to Wentworth Correctional Centre to find a new dynamic is in play which will have immediate ramifications for Bea as Kaz Proctor has established a power base. 

On the outside, Franky is trying hard to be a productive member of society. 

As always, no-one should underestimate “the Freak”.

Notions of love and obsession will underpin the 12 episode season.

New castmembers this season are Kate Jenkinson as Allie Novak, who appears from episode one, and Bernard Curry as Jake Stewart and Sigrid Thornton as Sonia Stevens, who are introduced later in the season. Support cast includes Libby Tanner as Bridget Westfall, Jacquie Brennan as Linda Miles, Martin Sacks as Derek Channing, Sally-Anne Upton as Lucy Gambaro, Charlie Tjoe as Tina Mercado and Ra Chapman as Kim Chang.
