Viewers were immediately concerned when Captain Lee revealed a mysterious ‘condition’ left him unable to helm the superyacht My Seanna in the upcoming ninth season of Below Deck. The affectionately nicknamed Stud of the Sea has now explained more about his unexpected disappearance at the start of the Bravo series.

Captain Lee’s absence will cause even more seafaring chaos in the next season of Below Deck, premiering October 25.

The crew of My Seanna are dumbstruck when a call from the captain confirms they’ll have to fend for themselves during the yacht’s next charter.

Thankfully, Captain Sean Meagher took over skipper duties for a short while before Rosbach was able to return.

However, in true Below Deck fashion, the stewards and deckhands were thrown into even more disarray than usual without the guidance of their trusted captain.

Full details of Rosbach’s absence weren’t revealed in the new trailer, which begins with Eddie Lucas receiving a call about his mysterious ‘condition’.

In a new chat with E!, the reality star has since assured fans this wasn’t related to COVID-19 and he is now feeling much better.

Explaining more, he said: “The timing was mainly screwed up.

“Because we have such a tight shooting schedule, it was imperative that the guests’ charters start and end on time so it didn’t have a domino effect and impact every charter after that.”

Despite Rosbach’s unknown illness, the charter still had to depart on the scheduled date while the captain was left to recover on dry land.

Although Captain Lee himself was not suffering with COVID, he revealed the filming of this year’s new season was dramatically affected by the pandemic.

“There was just a lot of different things this year,” he continued. “Because of the circumstances in which we had to film.

“A lot of things that we’re used to doing, we couldn’t do because we had to stay within the confines of our bubble because of COVID-19, so we had to improvise in some situations, which is not a bad thing.”

“Sometimes you can improvise and get extremely creative, which I like to think we’re pretty good at.”

To fans’ delight, both Below Deck and its spin-offs Mediterranean and Sailing Yacht were both able to complete their latest shoots with health and safety regulations in place.

Plus, fans can rest easy as Captain Lee has confirmed he will eventually be back at the helm at some point in the next season.

He told E!: “It really felt good to get back on the water.”

“When I finally got onboard, I was the happiest guy in the world.”

It remains to be seen how long the superyacht crew will have to do without their usual captain during the unprecedented new charter.

They’ll also have to wait and see if acting Captain Sean Meagher will be able to reign in his rambunctious crew or whether he’ll be tempted to throw them all overboard.

Below Deck season 9 premieres on Monday, October 25 on Bravo.
