The Block is returning for two seasons again next year and Channel Nine has announced the cast for The Block Fan vs Favourites.

Returning to The Block will be fan favourites and 2013 Sky High winners Alysa and Lysandra as well as a couple consisting of former contestants Dale and Brad who featured in the 2012 season.

They will take on four new couples – Chris and Pas, from Queensland, Kyal and Kara (NSW), Chantelle and Steve (VIC), and Jesse and Kenny (Qld).

The teams will be renovating Dux House an old movie theatre in Albert Park. The twist this season is that the place is completely gutted. No plumbing, electrics or floor plan. The teams begin by living in tents on the site.

“We constantly look around the country for suitable properties for the show,” said executive producer Julian Cress

“This current series is being filmed in Albert Park simply because the grand old Dux movie theatre is located 50 metres from my house and I took one look at it and thought it was perfect.”

The Block Fan's vs Favourites will premiere in late January, a second more traditional series of The Block will feature later in 2014
