Will ABC renew Escape from the City?
Presenter Jane Hall isn't sure if ABC will go again with its lifestyle series.
Next week ABC will present its 2020 programming slate.
If Escape from the City is renewed it is unlikely to screen next year due to the long production time involved.
Fremantle produced 60 episodes of the series in 2018 which also helped showcase parts of rural Australia.
Originally the series was planned for a 6pm slot in 2018, but after ABC settled on The Drum in the slot it screened in 2019 on Thursdays (and The Heights to Fridays).
Presenter Jane Hall told TV Tonight she hadn’t heard of further filming.
“I don’t know,” she said. “Because we made 60 episodes of that -we being the ABC- I don’t know.
“I think they’re just going to do that ABC thing of keeping it on a loop for a very long time. We’ll still be watching it 10 years from now.
“So I’m not sure, but I am actually contracted to do it if they want to go again.”
ABC’s 2020 slate will be revealed next Thursday afternoon.
