The Block NZ gets the chop for 2024 Season, up to 200 production jobs at risk

The Block NZ 2024 news

The 2024 season of The Block NZ has been canceled, potentially leaving up to 200 production staff jobless.

Warner Bros NZ co-managing director Mike Molloy cited a collapse in the advertising market as the reason, not a lack of audience interest.

The exterior of the four Browns Bay houses for the season is nearly complete, but the interiors remain unfinished.

The houses, each 200sqm with three or four bedrooms, are expected to be ready for sale later in 2024. Other local shows face similar threats due to major cutbacks by Warner Bros Discovery, impacting thousands of local production jobs.

  1. Mainstream TV is dead 99% of it is completely unwatchable and what is watchable is so drowned in a sea of commercials making it also unwatchable. Free to air tv has no standards any more just mostly reality TV Rubbish that I personally and I’m sure a lot of other people have no interest in watching.
