Eddie Lucas is back! The original Below Deck crew member makes his triumphant return to the series when Season 8 sets sail on Monday, November 2 at 9/8c.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Peacock and the Bravo App.

But you don't have to wait to see Eddie back on Below Deck. You can catch the first five minutes of the Below Deck Season 8 premiere in the above clip exclusive to Bravo Insider.

In the video, Eddie reflects on returning to Below Deck for the first time since Season 3. "Five years have passed, and I feel like I'm older and wiser," Eddie shares. "And still the same guy."

We also get to see Eddie's first few moments of the charter season as he reports for duty on M/Y Seanna. "I haven't been in yachting in five years," Eddie says in an interview in the clip. "It's definitely gonna be a change of pace from what I'm used to."

Eddie goes on to share what he's been up to over the last five years, including the very different line of work he has gotten into since leaving yachting after Season 3 of Below Deck.

In addition to Eddie, Captain Lee Rosbach also returns to lead the Below Deck crew. However, that's just about where the familiarity ends in the upcoming season. "You've got new crew, new chef, new chief stew, new everything," Captain Lee says in the above clip.

The video also gives you an exclusive first look at that new Below Deck crew, including chief stew Francesca Rubi, chef Rachel Hargrove, stews Elizabeth Frankini and Isabelle "Izzy" Wouters, and deckhands James Hough and Shane Coopersmith. Let's just say there is no shortage of drama coming from the crew or the charter guests this season.
