Bravo Media has greenlighted a second season of its breakout original series Below Deck Mediterranean.
The series has generated double-digit in-season growth in all key demos with the second half of the season performing 30% higher in total viewers, 32% higher in persons 18-49 and 33% higher in person 25-54, versus the first half, according to Nielsen and Bravo. The Season 1 finale on July 26 scored the third-highest consecutive ratings this season in 18-49 with 1.1 million viewers, and nearly 2 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen L3. The series also is a social media standout, with total social media engagements up 162% from the first half to the second half of the season.
Below Deck Mediterranean, an expansion of the Below Deck franchise, gives viewers an all-access pass to the excitement, drama and adventure of life aboard a private luxury yacht. Each episode features a new group of elite clientele who present a new set of challenges while offering the crew a glamorous lifestyle and exotic perks. The “work hard, play harder” nature of the job combined with the pressure of working in the most exclusive yachting scene in the world pushes the team close to the breaking point.
Below Deck Mediterranean is produced by 51 Minds with Mark Cronin, Courtland Cox, Nadine Rajabi, Temple Williams, and Christian Sarabia serving as executive producers.
