Below Deck Season 10 Release Date: When is it?
Currently, nothing has been confirmed regarding the tenth season of Below Deck. It’s also not known if Bravo will greenlight the series for a new season but we’re hopeful that the series will continue. Another sole fact why the show still hasn’t been renewed yet could be because the ninth season is still airing and is due to wrap its season’s last episode in January 2022.
According to Screen Rant, the ninth season was more intriguing when it was unveiled that only two of the original cast members would make a reappearance, namely Rachel Hargrove and Eddie Lucas.
Coming back to the release date for season 10 of Below Deck, fans should expect to see the new episodes by late 2022 and will probably continue till the first two weeks of early 2023. We will update this section till further announcements are out concerning the air date for Below Deck season 10.
The Cast of Below Deck Season 10: Who Will Return?
As mentioned above, the tenth season will have only two original cast members— Eddie Lucas and Rachel Hargrove. Throughout the seasons, it features a whole new entire cast and just few of them made reappearances. Furthermore, it was also reported that fans favourite Kate Chastain have departed from the show in order to give more spotlight to the other cast members so that they can capture the attention of the viewers across the globe.
To put it, fans should more or less expect to see new faces in the tenth season of Below Deck.
Also, the most surprising and uncalled for is that Captain Lee Rosbach was missing in Season 9. Could it be that Rosbach left the show for good?
In a previously released episode of “Below Deck,” Rosbach disclosed why he was missing in season 9. He confessed on the show via Metro: “I have a condition that I was born with called AFib, and it’s when your heart will just randomly go into an irregular heartbeat, they hospitalized me, and they actually burn off parts of your heart that are trouble spots.” Even after all this he still cherished every moment on “My Seanna” during the ninth season of Below Deck.
Speaking to E! Online, Rosbach said, “It’s unlike any other season that we’ve had, and I really enjoyed it.”
Will the fan favourite Kate Chastain return in Below Deck season 10?
Unfortunately, Kate Chastain has decided to leave the show in 2020. She revealed the reason why she left the show to US Weekly, Chastain mentioned that it’s because of that one particular heart-wrenching incident on the show where one of the crew members Ashton Pienaar smashed a window of a van with the other crewmates during a heated argument with the Chief Stewardess, drove her to depart from the show and yachting eventually. Speaking to Decider, Chastain said, “I was scared but also just in shock, I was in a place where I could not have escaped if I wanted to. I played possum, just froze and held still.”
Much later after what had happened, she sat down with the US Weekly and said that she would likely go back to the show if they offer “a lot of money” or to just return and help the crewmates if they need a final minute substitution for Chief Stewardess.
As for the plot, it’s been kept secret and not much is known but hopefully, the show makers keep the drama going to keep the audience entertained.
