Below Deck Season 10 - Here's What We Can Tell Fans So Far

Since 2013, the Bravo reality television show "Below Deck" has entertained a loyal fan base by showcasing the relatively mysterious world of yachties. Throughout each season of the show, a crew of deckhands, stewards, and a chef have managed to juggle never-ending drama while tending to every need of demanding wealthy guests onboard a luxurious mega yacht. Drawbacks aside, though, the crew manages the drama and demands in some of the most beautiful locations in the world, including Thailand, St. Martin, and the Virgin Islands, according to The Cinemaholic.

The idea to showcase the drama and luxury on board a mega yacht was dreamt up by Rebecca Taylor Henning, a former yachtie and current reality television producer, according to Vulture. While on vacation in St. Martin, Henning found her most direct inspiration for "Below Deck" when she overheard crew members onboard a mega yacht having a conversation about the various romantic entanglements taking place below deck, per Boat International. Years after Henning overheard this conversation, many memorable, dramatic, and romantic entanglements have taken place on the Bravo television show.

The trailer for Season 10 "Below Deck" is out and the release date is here. Here's all you need to know.

Will Chief Stewardess Kate Chastain ever be returning to Below Deck?

After 6 seasons on "Below Deck," Chief Stewardess Kate Chastain officially left the popular Bravo franchise to pursue a more stable existence in New York City back in 2020, via Bravo TV. Chastain mentioned that a heart-stopping event on the show, in which fellow crew member Ashton Pienaar punched a window of a van during an argument with the chief stewardess, pushed her to make the decision to leave the show and yachting officially, via Us Weekly. "I was scared but also just in shock," Kate told Decider back in 2019, via Us Weekly. "I was in a place where I could not have escaped if I wanted to. I played possum, just froze and held still."

In February 2020, Chastain made the official announcement about leaving the show. "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, I have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new land-based role," Chastain wrote in an Instagram post. "I intend to step back as a senior member of the Below Deck Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support His Majesty, Andy Cohen." Later, while speaking with Us Weekly, Chastain said she would only return to the show for "a lot of money" or to save the day if the crew needs a last-minute chief stewardess substitution.
