What is Dick and Angel's Escape the Chateau spin-off series about?

Dick and Angel Strawbridge will be back on screens for a new series in 2023 titled, Escape to the Chateau: Secret France. And while the name is similar, the concept is very different from the original.

While the long-running series focused on the family's beautiful Chateau in France and its ongoing renovations and restoration work, the new series will see the couple embark on a journey around France exploring what the country has to offer and discovering more about its fascinating history.

The new show will consist of four one-hour long episodes so there's plenty of content for fans to look forward to. The synopsis states that Dick and Angel will go on a "whistle-stop tour" of France to unlock mysteries of the country and show parts of France that viewers may not have seen before.
