Below Deck Med Season 8 Premiere Date

Bravo announced the official premiere date for Below Deck Med season 8 is September 25. Season 7 premiered July 11, 2022 and ended on November 22, 2022. It’s been a long wait for season 8 — but hopefully it will be worth it.

Below Deck Med Season 8 Trailer

The Below Deck Med season 8 trailer came out September 1. There’s plenty of drama aboard the M/Y Mustique in the Italian Riviera. There’s also a bit of romance going on between Stew Jessika Asai and deckhand Luka Brunton. Luka says he’s trying not to get “distracted” by the ladies on the ship. The trailer also teases the tension between Chief Stew Tumi Mhlongo and Stew Natalya Scudder. Captain Sandy appears to fire at least one crew member in the explosive trailer.

Captain Sandy teased Below Deck Med season 8 in an interview with Heavy. “Just like any season of the ‘Below Deck’ franchise, you’re going to get the drama, you’re going to get the beautiful experiences that people have. The food, the best cuisines on the planet are prepared by a chef. And you’re floating around in the most beautiful places in the world. So that’s the highlight of the show,” she said.

Below Deck Med is the longest running Below Deck spinoff. Since its premiere, there’s been three more spinoffs — Below Deck Sailing YachtBelow Deck Down Under, and Below Deck Adventure, which are all also popular with Bravo fans.
