After 10 sensational seasons at sea, Captain Lee Rosbach is finally disembarking from Below Deck.

During BravoCon 2023, Bravo officially announced the beloved star will not be returning for the series' upcoming 11th season, which will premiere in February. But fear not, Bravoholics, because a familiar face is stepping in to fill Lee's shoes.

Below Deck Adventure's Captain Kerry Titheradge will take over to helm the M/Y St. David as Lee's replacement, the network revealed Nov. 3. Additionally, Chief Stew Fraser Olender and lead deckhand Ben Willoughby will return for the new season.  

Joining them are new crew members Chef Anthony Iracane, Bosun Jared Woodin, deckhands Sunny Marquis and Kyle Stillie and stews Cat Baugh, Xandi Olivier and Barbie Pascual.   

Lee's departure from the series comes amid a turbulent season 10, which saw the captain suffer from health issues that forced him to leave mid-charter to seek medical help. At the time, Below Deck Mediterranean's Captain Sandy Yawn stepped in to fill his position.

The Most Dramatic Below Deck Firings Ever

However, after a successful surgery to fix a nerve injury that made it painful for him to walk, Lee was able to return before the end of the season.

As for how Captain Kerry feels about replacing the iconic stud of the sea? "I know I have big shoes to fill," he says in the just-released season 11 trailer below, "but I like it that way."

And much like Lee, he is not going to tolerate any funny business from his crew. "I expect perfection," Kerry tells the yachties in the preview. "You work hard, you'll be rewarded. If you f--k around, I will turn in a heartbeat."

From temperamental new passengers and two crew members "screwing like dogs," to Frasier making out with a charter guest and an insane amount of crew drama, see everything to come in the first look above.

Below Deck premieres Monday, Feb. 5, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

And keep reading to meet the season 11 cast.
