With five apartments going into the former Kingsland fire station building, could The Block NZ: Firehouse feature five competing teams?

On the weekend when Mediaworks puts a final shout-out for contestants willing to give it a go, a company spokesperson had no comment to make on whether it will be four or five teams. But the company earlier posted a photo on Instagram with text mentioning five “luxury” apartments.

And if you think this series will be about renovating, as it was when The Block NZ started out seven years ago, then you’re out of luck. Which is a pity, because renovating is a much bigger challenge than simply painting new rooms.
