Unanchored is an American reality television series that airs on Bravo TV. The series is produced by Darren Roth (line producer), Lyndsey Burr (supervising producer), Alex Baskin (executive producer), Bill Langworthy (executive producer), Douglas Ross (executive producer), and Jeremiah Smith (co-executive producer).
The show, filming nine friends and their vacation together, enlightens the viewers about the concept of Bucket Lust vacation, where a large group can rent all the yachts in a marina and sail out to exotic places such as The Bahamas, while partying, snorkeling, diving, sailing, enjoying the blue oceans, and witnessing different adventures. Interestingly enough, Unanchored is produced by the same people who produced Vanderpump Rules.
“We’re taking a lot of the same crew members, same people from Vanderpump Rules, and we’re doing this new show that’s all gonna be on the water,” said Jeremiah Smith, a co-executive producer of Unanchored. After a moderately successful season 1, fans would surely like to know if there is season 2 in the making. Here’s everything we know about it.

“You can’t make a good show unless you have a good cast,” Smith, the co-executive producer shared. “We are incredibly lucky that we found a group of people that are living their lives in such a different way than most people live them… they are a really, really unique, interesting, crazy group of people and I cannot wait for America to see their story.”
Unanchored Plot: What is it about?
Unanchored is a series about a bunch of friends’ sailing trip with adventures and revelations. The show features eight best friends who embark on a life-changing journey, filled with wanderlust and self-discovery. Led by Captain Jack Royds, the larger-than-life skipper, the crew attend exclusive and one of the most desired Floating Festivals, with the name ‘The Bucket Lust’. Around 350 people and 35 twin-hulled ships set sail to incredible, breath-taking locales all over the Bahamas. In the trip which happens once a year, these eight friends are enthused to take up all the work of the crew, like full-time cooking and cleaning, and even hosting their own sails and tending lines. They take dips with swimming pigs and stingrays, ride rocket-power jet boards, and party all night until dawn.
But as it turns out, it is not always smooth-sailing and sunshine for this group of friends. Their darker side comes to the fore and their friendships are put to the test. The love and romance between the couples are also tested. Can long-distance relationships could handle 24/7 of togetherness? We also get to see fiery exes trying to coexist calmly during their voyage. Among buried secrets, hidden jealousies and hatred, the bubble finally bursts as the suppressed conflicts between friends starts to come out.
Everybody on the crew tolerates their flat, boring, mechanical, and uninspiring lives with successful careers only for the reason that at least a few times per year, they get to travel and witness amazing places of the world with their friends and party in spectacular locations.
