This month’s streaming highlights see the return of old favourites, as well as some exciting new offerings across the board. There are opportunities to double down on Olympics fever with an Australian sports documentary, white-knuckle it through a locally-filmed thriller, or engross yourself in the ABC’s latest drama series. The biggest news of all is the announcement of the final season of Wentworth. The mammoth drama with a cult following will reach 100 episodes at its conclusion, each dedicated to the heightened drama of an Australian women’s prison.
