While fans living in the UK were thrilled with the annoncement, others shared their disappointment that they are unable to watch the show in their location.

One person wrote: "Not here you won’t – I’m in Canada, we wait a long time before we get anything from y’all .. and it sucks"

Another added: "When will it air in the U.S.?"

Dick and Angel confirmed last month that the ninth series will be their last.

The hit Channel 4 show follows the former Lieutenant Colonel and his wife as they renovated an idyllic chateau nestled in the French countryside.

Launching in 2016, the popular series showed the ups and downs of the renovation of the ruined property located in the small market town of Martigné-sur-Mayenne.

Dick and Angel had initially paid £280,000 when they bought the dilapidated castle, which has 45 bedrooms, 78 windows, 12 acres and one moat, back in 2015.

In a recent newsletter to fans the couple announced the ninth season would be "starting soon in the UK".

However, the headline was "The Ninth and Final Series of Escape to the Chateau".
