The Bear will return for its third season in June, announced FX chairman John Landgraf during the network’s presentation at the Television Critics Association’s winter 2023 press tour.
All the episodes will be dropping at once, just as they did in Seasons 1 and 2. The series begins shooting on February 26. "It wasn’t lost on me or anyone who worked on the show that it was anxiety-inducing,” he said. “So we made a decision to drop the whole thing because it has a beautiful, uplifting ending." He denied commenting about notable cameos appearing in the upcoming season, just like how they surprised the audience in season 2.
The first season of the series premiered on Hulu on June 23, 2022, and was later renewed for a ten-episode second season, which was released on June 22, 2023.
The Bear follows an award-winning New York City chef, Carmen, who returns to his home in Chicago to look after his family's sandwich shop. The second season follows Carmen, who, along with Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) and Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), transform their fast food joint into a fine dining restaurant.
The series is created by Chris Storer, who also serves as an executive producer along with Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai of Super Frog, Josh Senior and Matheson. Besides Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri, the series also stars Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, Abby Elliott, and Matty Matheson, among others.
At the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards, the series was feted with the honour of Outstanding Comedy Series. The series also won six awards, topping the comedy category and garnering performance awards for stars Jeremy Allen White (lead actor in a comedy), Ayo Edebiri (lead actress in a comedy) and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (supporting actor in a comedy).
