@hmnvtn yes, I have also checked, the issue is coming due to this line of code which actually filter excerpt based on excerpt length attributes applied in excerpt block.

$excerpt = wp_trim_words( $excerpt, $excerpt_length );

Thanks for the report!

The tag removal in the Post Excerpt blocks was already mentioned in a comment on the pull request GB44964. However, I did not find a follow-up issue (or pull request) on the Gutenberg repository to fix it. If you would like, you could create a new issue there.

Coming from similar: #59348

It looks like the "block_type_metadata" filter gives us ability to modify original Gutenberg block settings, and this way it is possible to completely remove the "excerptLength" key from the metadata attributes array. This way we can bypass wp_trim_words() and only get the untrimmed excerpt with HTML content.

function fzs_filter_metadata_registration( $metadata ) {
    if ($metadata['name'] === 'core/post-excerpt') {
    return $metadata;
add_filter( 'block_type_metadata', 'fzs_filter_metadata_registration' );
