The star of the program, Matt Wright, is among three people facing charges in relation to the crash. Wright, who describes Wilson as one of his “closest mates”, has been accused of perverting the course of justice and destruction of evidence.

Wright was released on bail on Tuesday after he flew from Sydney and turned himself in to police. He strenuously denies any wrongdoing.

The latest season of Wild Croc Territory was released on Netflix after Wilson’s death and his wife Danielle accused Netflix of “seriously lacking in any empathy or respect” for continuing to show the series.

“I have to date let the matter rest under the assumption that the series would cease being shown immediately if, or when, the Northern Territory Police indicated charges would be brought in relation to my husband’s death and the subsequent alleged related actions of individuals who appear in the series,” she said in an email sent to Netflix.

“I am extremely disappointed to read in the media that not only has this not occurred, but that Netflix are also refusing to comment on the future of the series at all.

“It pains me greatly that the series is still being shown despite the serious allegations that have been made against an individual involved in the series.

“To that end, I would request that Netflix immediately cease showing, promoting or advertising the series from its programming schedule until such a time that all court proceeding in relation to the tragic death of my husband have been finalised.”

9News.com.au has reached out to Netflix for a response to Wilson’s statement.

Nine Entertainment Co (the publisher of this website) owns and operates the streaming service Stan. Both Outback Wrangler and Wild Croc Territory have previously aired on Nine.
