Familiar faces

The Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 premiere episode will introduce the cast members Chef Johnathan Shillingford, Bosun Iain Maclean, deckhands Joe Bradley, Nathan Gallagher, and Gael Cameron, and stew Bri Muller to the audience.

The 75-minute episode will focus on Captain Sandy Yawn's strategy to highlight teamwork within the crew to make the attendees on the 180-foot M/Y Mustique happy. In the trailer, she mentions the importance of unity and cooperation among crew members:

"We're a team, team work makes the dream work."

However, by the looks of it, things could go wrong. Multiple clips from the sneak peek teaser hint at conflicts and arguments between chefs and deckhands. Viewers will see more of this drama once the first episode of Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 premieres.

Apart from Captain Sandy, former season 4 and 5 cast member Aesha Scott will return to the Bravo series alongside Elena Dubaich. In a confessional interview clip, she shared her nervousness:

"I have so many butterflies. I'm just so excited to prove myself. It's my homecoming."

Boatmances and Conflicts

Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 was filmed in Athens, Greece with the Mustique crew. As per the Bravo press release, Captain Sandy and her crew will face challenges linked to harsh weather conditions and "tumultuous waves."

While traveling to Greece, the crew will make quick decisions to serve the guests on time while suffering from mechanical issues and "late-night demands." It further states:

"Amidst a saga of delayed provisions, managing a complicated interior department and a medical emergency, Aesha strives to ensure the guests are treated to a five-star service experience. Meanwhile, the deck crew faces its own hurdles and must learn that communication is key in order to successfully get through the season."

The new Below Deck Mediterranean season trailer hints at "delayed provisions" and overlooking a "complicated interior department." Due to a lack of communication, the crew will find it difficult to follow instructions and complete their specific chores on time.

They will also face challenges linked to management due to a boatmance situation. Viewers will also witness a planned proposal from Captain Sandy to her partner, Leah Shafer.

Stream Below Deck Mediterranean seasons 1 to 8 on Peacock TV. The new season will be available on the Bravo TV website or app.
