It's high drama on the high seas when Below Deck Mediterranean season 4 premieres on June 3

Things are going south for the crew in season 4 of Below Deck Mediterranean.

Captain Sandy Yawn and her sturdy staff of seafarers will be heading to the South of France for their next adventure — though the French Mediterranean’s picturesque beaches, quality cuisine and wealthy clientele won’t necessarily mean smooth yachting ahead.

PEOPLE has the exclusive premiere of the trailer for the new season of the hit Bravo show, which kicks off this June.

“We’re taking on water. Bring the guests back immediately,” Yawn screams at her crew in the trailer, as the interior floods and waves crash over the mega yacht in one scary scene.

Returning again to the fold are former cast members João Franco (formerly a deckhand, now a bosun), as well as deckhand Colin Macy-O’Toole and chief stew Hannah Ferrier.

Ferrier was in hot water for much of last season, as her volatile romance with one of her coworkers caused her to make repeated mistakes in her role as chief stew. This time around, she’s trying to right her wrongs with Yawn.

“I feel like this charter season, my job is my number one priority,” she declares in the trailer.

That doesn’t last long, it seems. “I’m not happy with interior and it starts with you,” Yawn scolds Ferrier in one scene. “Do your job.”,

Yawn isn’t the only one Ferrier is clashing with. In one scene, she battles against chef Mila Kolomeitseva — the first female chef in franchise history, who, despite being Le Cordon Bleu-trained, may not be up to date on basic cooking skills.

“You don’t know how to make pancake batter, that’s a bit of a f—ing problem.” Ferrier tells Kolomeitseva. “Your food is s—!”

“How about maybe you cook?” Kolomeitseva challenges Ferrier, seemingly unbothered.

Elsewhere on the high seas, new yachties include: Aesha Scott (second stew), Anastasia Surmava (third stew), Travis Michalzik (deckhand) and Jack Stirrup (deckhand).

Franco seems to be really struggling with his deckhands as he takes on his new leadership role. “It’s not up to you to decide whether you f—ing finish or not. It’s not up to you,” he yells at one deckhand, explaining to another at one point that something they did was “a fireable offense.”

That could be a hint at things to come, as Yawn fires at least one staffer. “Your position’s now redundant,” she says. “I have to let you go.”

Of course, with all that tension, the crew has to find a way to cool off. So it should come as no surprise to see that there’s a hookup or two going on down below.

Rough waters, indeed.

Below Deck Mediterranean premieres June 3 (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
