A letter containing details of The Block’s final day of filming for 2023 has been leaked online.
The letter was sent to residents of Charming St, Hampton East in Melbourne, where the current season has been filmed, and was shared to a Facebook group for fans of the show.
It states that the final day of filming will take place on Saturday the 4th of November, and that large trucks and drone operated cameras may cause disruptions in the street on the day.
Nine stress in the letter that they will do everything possible to minimise any potential issues that may arise, before thanking locals for their cooperation during filming.
‘Thank you for having us in your street and for your patience throughout production,’ they write.

But fans of the show on Facebook used the post to complain about the direction that the series has gone in this year in the comments section.
In the comments to the post, many took issue with the ‘rubbish’ 2023 season and urged the show to go ‘back to its roots’.
‘Not a great season,’ one fan wrote. ‘I watch it for the renos not the bickering but the renos are becoming so high end they are beyond the reach of normal renovators.’
‘Don’t watch The Block anymore. Just awful. Life’s tough enough without watching endless nastiness and hate,’ wrote another member of the group.
‘The Block needs to go back to its roots…it was rubbish this year. Bring back Jamie Durie… and relieve Shelly Craft of whatever it is she does,’ another Facebook commenter advised.

Fans of The Block have been complaining that the drama in the latest season has gone too far
While another commenter agreed the team needed a refresh: ‘Jamie should host the show for one season.’
‘Worst block season ever this year. More arguments than building and more tradies doing all the work I’m sure all the teams just shopped and painted when they weren’t arguing with each other,’ wrote another fan.
It comes as The Block style maven Shayna Blaze earlier this month broke her silence on the ‘toxic behaviour’ on this season.
The series judge, 60, told Yahoo Lifestyle that the judges make it a point to only focus on the quality of contestant’s homes and not get involved in their personal drama.

‘We don’t know any of what goes on, we don’t meet the contestants. We’re not told about anything, so we can purely judge the rooms and not the drama,’ she said.
She then said she was not surprised the contestants often brought their personal lives onto the show.
‘They’re in a bubble and there’s so much drama that goes on with the build. It carries on into their personal lives,’ she said.

‘Maybe the stress is too much and people just do all the wrong things. But I am quite shocked at what’s been coming out,’ she said.
Her comments come amid reports the popular Channel Nine renovation show has come under fire over on set ‘bullying’ claims with scores of viewers venting their concerns.
Now Woman’s Day has claimed that some believe the show ‘has run its course’ after it was slammed with ACMA complaints.

The furor could spell the end for the show, with viewers turning off in droves and investigations launched.
The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has been inundated with complaints about the current season of The Block and in just one week, ACMA registered a total of 28 complaints.
A spokesperson from ACMA told The Australian: ‘The majority of the inquiries related to allegations of bullying, harassment and promotion of anti-social behaviour between contestants.’
This comes in the wake of many articles and discussions regarding the heightened drama between contestants during this season.
