FX has ordered more episodes of “The Bear.”
In a move that doesn’t qualify as surprising, the network announced on Monday that “The Bear” will return for Season 3.

The show’s beloved second season debuted in June and won wide acclaim for how the episodes expanded the scope established by Season 1. Funny enough, “The Bear” has not yet won any Emmy Awards despite being one of the industry’s best-reviewed shows. That’s because the 2023 Emmys – where “The Bear” will compete for numerous awards for Season 1 – was delayed until 2024 due to the actors’ and writers’ strikes. The show’s second season is eligible for Emmy consideration at the actual 2024 ceremony.
“‘The Bear,’ which wowed audiences in its first season only to achieve even greater heights in season two, has become a cultural phenomenon,” said Nick Grad, president of FX Entertainment. “We’re so proud to partner with Christopher Storer, Joanna Calo, Josh Senior, and the rest of the creative team, as well as the brilliant cast led by Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. What they and the crew have done is truly remarkable, and we and our partners at Hulu join fans in looking forward to the next chapter in the story of ‘The Bear.’”
“The Bear” focuses on a traumatized chef named Carmy (White) who returns to Chicago after his brother’s death by suicide to help run the family restaurant. The show’s first season ended with Carmy and his sous-chef Sydney (Edebiri) deciding with the other staffers to close their sandwich shop and rebrand the establishment as “The Bear,” a restaurant with greater aspirations than just Italian beef sandwiches. Season 2 focused on how the staff pulled off the opening and took great care in contextualizing the backstories of other major characters, including ne’er-do-well “cousin” Richie (Moss-Bachrach).
All episodes are streaming on Hulu.
