‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’: Gary King Still Works for Captain Glenn on Parsifal III so Could He Return for Season 3?

Could first mate Gary King be returning to Below Deck Sailing Yacht for season 3? He recently shared video and photos with Captain Glenn Shephard aboard Parsifal III. Plus he appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen from the sailing yacht.

Shephard later joined King for the WWHL After Show too. While King may be working aboard the sailing yacht, Bravo and casting agents are keeping a tight lid on who could be returning next year. Colin Macy-O’Toole from Below Deck Mediterranean recently told Showbiz Cheat Sheet he worked as a casting producer and said, “I started [Below Deck] Sailing [Yacht] for next season.” Macy-O’Toole didn’t offer any additional casting information, but Below Deck Sailing Yacht typically films during the summer. Also, did King give away next season’s destination?

Is Greece the next ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ destination?

Shephard asked King to continue on with him for the boat’s crossing after filming for season 2 ended. He also asked chef Natasha de Bourg to work as the crew chef for the crossing. And while that footage was filmed late last summer, King is back on Parsifal III in June.

King recently shared a playful video of the twosome touring Greece in a tender. “So, had my morning coffee and Captain Glenn and Gary are here,” King said in an Instagram story video. “Cruising around Greece. Have a look at how beautiful it is.” King then launched into song, “We’re the two best friends that anyone can have!” Shepard is seen laughing in the background of the video.

King also shared a photo with Shephard from Corfu, Greece a few days before he shot the Instagram video. “Finally found someone who gets me,” he captioned the photo. “Having had the honours of working with such and amazing captain and an even better friend has honestly been a privilege. I’m glad you saw what a lot miss in me, and I thank you for that! Here is to many good adventures together. You’re the best captain and person I know.”

Some ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ fans would love to see Daisy Kelliher and Colin Macrae return for season 3

In addition to Shephard, many fans have named two other crew members they hoped would return next season. Chief stew Daisy Kelliher and chief engineer Colin Macrae gained significant fan traction throughout season 3. Plus, Kelliher was praised as the new “best chief stew” by former Below Deck chief stews Kate Chastain and Hannah Ferrier.

“If Collin and Daisy return to Below Deck Sailing yacht for the third season the ratings will skyrocket,” one person tweeted after the latest episode. Another person wondered if the returning crew members would be Kelliher and King. “I’m thinking Daisy and Gary will both be back next Season (Kate and Eddie were both Below Deck 2 and 3) …Colin maybe Season 4?”

But Kelliher is currently working as a chief stew on a motoryacht. She filmed some of her Pita Party Instagram updates from the motoryacht and was recently joined by Max Hagley from Below Deck Mediterranean Season 2. Macrae continues to post videos from his Sailing Parlay Revival YouTube channel aboard his catamaran.

Official Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 crew members have yet to be revealed. But the season 2 finale is on Monday, June 14 at 9/8c on Bravo.
