TV’s toughest reno show will spring up in the Aussie bush come 2022 withThe Block‘s 18th season set to make a “tree change”.
Someone’s great Australian dream is bound to come true after Blockheads transform a set of country homes in the upcoming season, which was announced by Nine at their annual Upfront event in mid-September where the network revealed their slate of shows for the incoming year.
While no official location has been announced for the new properties, Domain reported that Nine’s production company MicJoy Pty Ltd has snapped up 79 acres in Macedon Ranges’, Gisborne. The regional location will be a major departure from past seasons, which have seen homes given a new lease on life in several Inner Melbourne suburbs such as St Kilda, Brighton and Elsternwick.
On The Block official Instagram page, the series boasted that a “renovation revolution is coming in 2022” and fingers crossed said revolution is taking the show back to its humble roots because the current season is WILD.
The Block: Fans VS Faves is currently unfolding on screens around the country, with returning favourites Ronnie and Georgia and Mitch and Mark taking on three brand new teams of Blockheads in a series that has seen ratings burst through the roof, with cheating scandals and rivalries rife on the building site in Hampton’s Bronte Court.
Viewers were left enthralled by the show’s 17th season after newcomers Tanya and Vito and twins Josh and Luke were found to have their hands on the top-secret production schedule which detailed what rooms they would be completing and when, which sent shockwaves through the whole show.
Along with The Block: Tree Change, Nine released a trailer for Married at First Sight 2022 which showcased upcoming contestants, and also announced that fan-favourite reality series Beauty and The Geek will make a return in the New Year.
One of The Block‘s long-time judges Shaynna Blaze is also slated to star in her own show in 2022 called Country Home Rescue, in which she and her children will renovate a historical home in regional Victoria.
While you wait for The Block: Tree Change, you can catch Fans VS Faves on Channel Nine and 9Now.
