Returning: Below Deck Down Under

Controversial season with inappropriate behaviour surrounding sexual consent comes to Free to Air.

Season 2 of Below Deck Down Under Season 2 will premiere this week getting a Free to Air outing on Seven, before moving to 7Bravo.

This was the controversial season in which inappropriate behaviour involving sexual consent drew international headlines.

Captain Jason and Chief Stew Aesha reunite for an unforgettable, full-throttle charter season with a lively new crew and wild guests in the stunning waters of Cairns, Australia: the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

Jason is at the helm of the vintage M/Y Northern Sun, where he navigates tumultuous crew dynamics and unprecedented shake-ups throughout the season. Each charter includes nonstop adventure and breathtaking underwater sight-sea-ing, but unruly guests break Jason’s rules, putting their holiday in jeopardy.

Mouth-watering menus and flavourful spreads delight the guests, but frustrations simmer between Chef Tzarina and Jason when he assists in the galley.

Initially understaffed, the deckhands make costly errors as they struggle to find their stride on the unpredictable, aging vessel. The interior experiences smooth sailing until a clash of work styles creates a rift between the stews.

Unexpected newcomers rock the boat throughout the season, including a shocking franchise crossover with the arrival of a polarising familiar face.

A slew of hook-ups, break-ups, and a rare “love pentagon” leaves the crew reeling as tension spills over on deck. And in one of the most confronting moments in the series, Aesha takes on some of the biggest obstacles of her career to look out for the crew’s wellbeing.

New crew members include Chef Tzarina Mace-Ralph, Bosun Luke Jones, Deckhands Adam Lukasiewicz and Harry Van Vilet, and Stews Laura Bileskaine and Margot Sisson.

Below Deck Down Under is produced by 51 Minds, with Nadine Rajabi, Mark Cronin, Cristina Lopez, Jill Goslicky, Tania Hamidi, Christian Sarabia and Zachary Klein as executive producers.

9.10pm Wednesday 7 February on Seven (continues weekly on Thurdays on 7plus and 7Bravo).

  1. This was incredibly tough to watch, but I’m glad they actually included what they did. Unfortunately, it seems the person at the core of this has moved on and somewhat revelled in the attention received, landing on their feet pretty well. I just hope they don’t ever repeat this repulsive behaviour.
