After the end of Below Deck Season 10, rumors have been circulating that Captain Lee Rosbach is retiring — but is this true? Here is everything we know.
Below Deck is a popular reality series with multiple spin-offs, that follows the lives of crew members aboard various yachts during charter season.
Lee Rosbach has been Captain on the main Below Deck show for ten seasons, and is a favorite among many fans of the franchise. However, in Season 10, Captain Lee had to take a break from the series due to health reasons – a nerve issue beginning to affect his ability to walk.
This has led many fans to wonder whether the star will be returning to Below Deck on a permanent basis. Here’s everything we know.
Is Captain Lee coming back for Season 11?
It has not yet been officially confirmed that Captain Lee will be returning for Season 11 of Below Deck.
In February, Us Weekly reported that multiple sources claimed the Captain wouldn’t be coming back for Season 11, and in March there were some rumors that the star would be retiring.
However, on March 19, Captain Lee addressed these claims on Twitter, saying, “I haven’t retired, in spite of what’s been reported by ‘sources.’”
