Captain Lee Rosbach is denying reports that he retired.
In fact, he suggested he’s staying on the franchise unless Bravo cuts him loose. Recently, @tvdeets on Twitter reported the network is filming a “goodbye episode” for the Below Deck star on Watch What Happens Live after Lee was temporarily replaced in the current season due to health concerns.
According to other sources, via Us Weekly, the next season of Below Deck will feature a different captain – Kerry Titheradge from Below Deck Adventure. The new season is purportedly in production, and many fans believe season 10 was Lee’s last.
Captain Lee took to Twitter and addressed the recent reports.
“I haven’t retired,” wrote Lee on March 19, 2023, “in spite of what’s been reported by ‘sources.'”

As of now, the network has not confirmed Lee’s exit from the franchise, though more and more details seem to indicate he won’t return.
Many Below Deck viewers cannot imagine the show without Lee, who has remained in the cast since the very beginning.
Below Deck airs Monday nights at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
