But we ain't seen nothin' yet, according to Captain Lee Rosbach. The Below Deck boss teased something major about the upcoming season on Instagram following the recent news that it would be returning on Monday, October 7 at 9/8c. "We are back peeps and it's shaping up to be one for the record books," he shared on Instagram.
That is not an understatement at all, judging by the above Season 7 trailer. The Below Deck crew will be shipping out to Thailand for a truly unforgettable season. The drama will be more intense, the hookups will be hotter, and everyone's jobs will be on the line like never before. "If anybody thinks I won't fire somebody in the middle of a f--king charter, they don't know me," Captain Lee says in the above clip.
We believe it!
And is that longtime chief stew Kate Chastain we see walking away from the crew in the middle of the charter season? Told you this season is unlike anything you've ever seen before.
In addition to Captain Lee and Kate, Ashton Pienaar will also be returning as bosun in the new season of Below Deck. These returning crew members will be joined by a fresh batch of yachties, including Kevin Dobson (chef), Simone Mashile (second stew), Courtney Skippon (third stew), Brian de Saint Pern (lead deckhand), Tanner Sterback (deckhand), and Abbi Murphy (deckhand). We might even welcome another familiar face back to Below Deck this season.
