Prisoner Is Returning! Foxtel Orders New Series

Yes Aussies beware PRISONER is making a comeback! Let’s get our overalls on again and head down to Cell Block H as the show goes into production in Melbourne. According to encore magazine –

Featuring an ensemble cast, the series will be a modern day version of the story of lead character Bea.

“I think it’s time to take a look at Prisoner and do a 2012 reimagining of the show,” Brian Walsh, Foxtel’s director of television told Encore. “It’s going to be provocative in a way that it could never be on Channel Ten but certainly can on subscription television.”

The series will be shot in Melbourne later this year.
