Below Deck is taking its talents to the waters of Australia in the new spinoff Below Deck Down Under, with a new captain, a new crew and new guests to keep them entertained. Well, the entire crew won’t exactly be a group of fresh faces. There is a certain stewardess from Below Deck Mediterranean that's front and center on the show. 

Bravo has promised Below Deck Down Under "will be unlike any franchise that has come before it." Given the show was filmed with Australia's tropical Whitsunday Islands as the backdrop, Bravo is off to a good start in keeping this promise. 

Here’s everything we know about Below Deck Down Under season 1.  

When is the next Below Deck Down Under season 1 episode?  

Below Deck Down Under season 1 premiered Thursday, March 17 on Peacock for US audiences, with three episodes. The remaining episodes air every following Thursday. 

The next episode of Below Deck Down Under season 1 debuts Thursday, May 26, and is titled "99 Problems and Thalassa Ain't One." 

It looks like this is a must-watch episode, as Captain Jason Chambers finally sends someone from the crew home. 

What will happen on Below Deck Down Under season 1?

Those excited to watch Below Deck Down Under season 1 should anticipate seeing guests take to the water to do a little scuba diving, a little snorkeling and even make some close encounters with marine life in the Great Barrier Reef. However, since this series has not been slated to be on a network like the Travel Channel, viewers can expect some drama. 

For starters, the young Captain Jason Chambers appears to have both the crew and the guests a bit distracted by his good looks and his gentleman charm. Then there is Aesha Scott. 

Fans of Below Deck Mediterranean will recognize Scott from seasons 4 and 5 of the show. Now that she’s been promoted to chief stew, it seems butting heads with other crew members is a regular thing for her along this voyage. 

Staying true to the Below Deck formula, there are also some regrettable kisses, explosive arguments and wild guest requests.

Joining the Below Deck vet Aesha Scott and the modelesque Captain Chambers on Below Deck Down Under, are a number of fresh faces. Ryan McKeown serves as the chef, Tumi Mhlongo and Magda Ziomek are on hand as the stews, Jamie is aboard as a bosun and Culver Bradbury, Brittini Burton and Ben Crawley are along for the journey as deckhands.  

The kind people over at Peacock were nice enough to release a brief video introducing the crew aboard the M/Y Thalassa.

It looks like there is still a lot of drama and crew shenanigans to come on Below Deck Down Under season 1 based on the midseason trailer.
