Foxtel said today the trailer had “broken the internet” with over 1 million views for the new spot in its first 24 hours, making it one of Foxtel’s most watched trailers ever.
The demand comes following the announcement this week that season 4 would return on May 10 on basic drama channel Soho.
The 12-episode Fremantle Media Australia produced show – which currently airs in 90 countries globally – will have episodes broadcast on Soho on Tuesdays at 8.30pm with catch up on Foxtel streaming services Go and Anytime immediately after their Soho airing.
With notions of love and obsession underpinning the series, 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. And, as always, no-one should underestimate “the Freak”.
