Prepare yourself for a scorching new season of the Logie Award Winning Outstanding Drama...where the 'Top Dog' prize is ready for the taking...or exterminating. Four months have passed since Bea Smith's brazen escape and ruthless murder of Brayden Holt. Having returned to Wentworth Correctional Centre following her successful campaign to kill Brayden, Bea has assumed the mantle of Top Dog, hailed by all--including Franky Doyle herself--as a worthy successor. Things are set to heat up with Joan 'The Freak' Ferguson realising Bea has played her, but she is determined to win the end game. Joining an all-star cast in this bold, brave and provocative new season are acclaimed actresses Pia Miranda as inmate Jodie Spiteri; Libby Tanner as psychologist Bridget Westfall and Tammy Macintosh as vigilante Karen Proctor. All three will impact the power play of the prison.

With such a large cast many of the supporting cast could easily get lost when the focus is on so many main players.
Pia Miranda (lovely name) does a sterling job as Jodie Spiteri, and I only assume (read hope) that Sally-Ann Upton is not as vile as Lucy 'Juice' Gumbaro - who has no redeeming qualities (the character, not the actress).
Thankfully, when sober, Liz Bridsworth is the heart of the show (played with great skill by Celia Ireland), and the inclusion of the talented Socratis Otto as transgender character Maxine Conway was realistically and sensitively written and portrayed.
All involved should feel proud of a job well done.
I always thought this was never going to capture my undivided attention, but from Episode 1 of Season 1, this show has grown into one outstanding remake of a classic 70's favourite. It's not the same story line or light hearted in ways the original is, but that's not a bad thing, it still has all the original characters, now played by modern day actors, but keeps the elements and back stories of the original characters of the original show, but strengthens them.
The acting is first class, the scripts and stories so well planned and thought out, I have been hooked and thought it can't get any better, but it does, each season finale has been better than the last and they have all been awesome, but season 3 has now proved that even though the cast is now established, the characters and friendships can be tested. I can say nothing more than complete and utter praise here for Australian TV for putting together one of its best produced exports since Fosters lager, lol. The actors, the writers, the producers, all need praise here and I cannot wait and hope season 4, is at the same level as this season and the previous ones.
If you like hard hitting gritty drama and loved the likes of previous outing like "Bad Girls", "Orange is the new Black", then you must watch this, it's far superior and more enthralling. Don't catch on too late.
