The Block producers ‘search for potential locations’ in Byron Bay for future seasons of the Channel Nine show

The new season of The Block kicks off next month, pitting fans of the renovation show against favorite former contestants.

And it seems that producers of the Channel Nine ratings juggernaut are looking to new sites outside of Victoria – where the show has been based for the past 10 years.

On Saturday, Sydney Morning Herald “confirmed” that the show’s producers “have explored potential locations for future seasons of the show in Byron Bay.”

A resident told the publication that a property he had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating was to be used for the show.

However, it was reported that ‘no deals have been signed’ regarding moving production from Melbourne’s current base to the famed seaside town.

While Byron Bay is under consideration, there are other locations outside the Victorian capital that are also being looked at as potential new locations, according to the publication.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comment.

Channel Nine recently unveiled a cowboy themed promo featuring host Scott Cam along with judges Neale Whitaker, Shaynna Blaze and Darren Palmer, set in Melbourne’s affluent suburb of Hampton.

“This cul-de-sac isn’t big enough for all of you,” Scott tells the group.

“For the first time in Block’s history. We’ll throw the plan away,” he says.

As the voice-over adds: ‘Five beautiful family homes in a cul-de-sac that will grip Australia.’
