Bravo announced earlier today (January 29) that Below Deck has scored a virtual reunion for Season 8.
According to The Daily Dish, the reunion has already been taped with host Andy Cohen and is expected to end towards the end of February, beginning of March. (The next season of Below Deck Sailing premieres March 1.)
Captain Lee Rosbach, Eddie Lucas, Francesca Rubi, Rachel Hargrove, Elizabeth Frankini, Izzy Wouters, Rob Phillips, James Hough, Ashling Lorger, and Shane Coopersmith are all expected to participate.
Bravo has opted to go with a virtual reunion for Below Deck Season 8.
As the network points out, this is the latest Below Deck to opt for a virtual reunion due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 1 and Below Deck Mediterranean Season 5 also going the remote-route.
While other Bravo shows like the Real Housewives and Southern Charm are able to film reunions in-person due to all being located in the same area, the Below Deck cast is from all over the world (literally), so it’s a no-brainer that the network decided to go with a virtual reunion.
This season of Below Deck has been one for the record books and there’s lots to discuss and we can’t wait to find out where the cast stands with each other after having watched the season.
Below Deck airs Mondays on Bravo.
