While the pair have yet to confirm the new programme, they told fans via their website that they have been planning a new travel show "for a while". 

In answer to a question from a viewer who asked if they would consider making a separate series which follows the Strawbridge family on their travels, the couple wrote: "We have actually been planning a travel show for a while…unfortunately lockdown has meant that we have had to put this on the backburner…but it’s definitely something we are looking to do in the future, so watch this space!"

The travel show wouldn't be the first spin-off series for the family. Following the success of their Channel 4 home restoration programme, the couple went on to develop two more programmes: Escape to the Chateau: Make, Do and Mend and Chateau DIY. The first series, which aired in 2020, saw the Strawbridge clan help families across the UK tackle their design and DIY dilemmas, while Chateau DIY saw the pair give tips to other ex-pats living in France.

The couple have been planning a new show for a while

As for series nine of Escape to the Chateau, Channel 4 are yet to announce when the series will be aired. However, looking back at the release date of previous seasons, the show tends to air around November time before putting out a special festive episode for Christmas. 

Dick and Angel have been keeping busy over the past few months with their Dare To Do It tour, which saw the pair and their two children, Dorothy and Arthur, travel the length and breadth of the UK to share their stories about renovating their home in France.
