ABC lifestyle series Escape from the City has its final episode tomorrow night, in what is likely to be its last ever episode.
ABC produced 60 episodes of the series from Fremantle in 2017, as part of its commitment to rural content. They were originally set to screen weeknights at 6pm in tandem with Think Tank.
But a programming decision to move The Drum to 6pm changed all that, shunting the show to 8:30pm Thursdays. For a show that has a particularly long production period, it has reached the end of the line.
In the final episode presenter Jane Hall lines up four very different homes at Mission Beach, Queensland.
A year ago she told TV Tonight , “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.”
8:30pm Thursday on ABC.
