Celebrating its 20th anniversary, The Block 2024 promises to be the biggest season yet.

It was a rocky start for Nine Network after its plans for the historic country town, Daylesford to be the new filming location, were dashed due to concerns from local residents.

And so, the producers restarted their hunt for the picture-perfect filming location for their anniversary season.

When does The Block start?

The official start date for The Block is yet to be revealed. However, we presume the season will kick-off in August.

There have been reports the new season will commence filming March 1. With legacy presenter Scotty Cam, revealing on Instagram in late-February he was having a “family lunch” before heading off to “you know where…”

Who are The Block judges for 2024?

Hitting Phillip Island for The Block 2024 is legacy presenters Scotty Cam and Shelley Craft.

In 2023, the judging panel received a minor shake-up with Marty Fox temporarily filling in for Neale Whittaker. Now fans are eager to discover if the brutal critic will appear for another season.

According to Homes To Love, both Neale and Marty will return in 2024. As for their co-judges Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer, they are yet to be confirmed.

Where is The Block being filmed?

Bidding farewell to Charming Street, season 20 will be moving to the remote Phillip Island which has a population of just over 7000. The sea-change remains just a 90-minute drive from Melbourne.

“The mayor of Phillip Island recently posted we were bringing the show down there. I’m as thrilled as he is,” the town major, Julian Cress told previously TV Tonight.

Who are the contestants?

Unfortunately, fans will have to be patient as to which lucky (or unfortunate) contestants will be joining The Block 2024.
