Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 is winding down, so speculation regarding Season 8 of the Below Deck spin-off has become one hot topic.

It’s not unusual for questions regarding future seasons of the Below Deck shows to emerge as one season ends.

There’s good news for Below Deck Med fans, though.

Last month at BravoCon, news broke that Season 8 of Below Deck Mediterranean was, in fact, happening.

That’s not all the news there is about the upcoming season, either.

Let’s take a look at what we know about the next season of the show so far.

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 8 info

In September, photos leaked to reveal what was believed to be images from Below Deck Med Season 8 filming.

A production crew was spotted in Portofino, Italy, with Below Deck Down Under star Tumi Mhlongo and Kyle Viljoen reportedly filming. There were no details regarding which one of them was taking on the chief stew role from Natasha Webb.

Captain Sandy Yawn’s expected to return for what will be her seventh season as she has given no indication she’s ready to step back from the show.

Although a premiere date, full cast list, and trailer for the upcoming season are still months away, fans can expect the new season to hit Bravo and Peacock airwaves next summer.

For the past few years, Below Deck Med has become a summer staple premiering after Below Deck Sailing Yacht wraps up its run.

In the meantime, there’s still a Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 reunion show that needs to take place, with viewers getting the chance to watch the Home crew rehash the good, the bad, and the ugly of the season.
