This summer, FX on Hulu’s The Bear took the world by storm—and yes, chef! It’ll be returning.

The drama follows an esteemed young chef Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (played by Shameless’s Jeremy Allen White) who returns home to run his family’s Chicago sandwich shop in the wake of his brother’s suicide. The eight-episode first season sees Carm deal with the financial troubles that come with the restaurant, tension between its staff as he attempts to refine it, as well as come to terms with his brother’s passing. But if you’ve finished Season One and are already craving some more family meal spaghetti, good news: the series has been renewed for a second season.

Not even a month after the show's June 23 debut, Season Two was solidified. “The Bear has exceeded our wildest creative, critical and commercial expectations,” said FX Entertainment president Eric Schrier in a statement. "We deeply appreciate the brilliant work led by creator and co-showrunner Christopher Storer and co-showrunner Joanna Calo. Jeremy Allen White's lead performance is spectacular, as are those of his co-stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce and Liza Colón-Zayas. We can't wait to get to work on Season Two."

Freshly armed with a whole lot of cash left behind for him by his brother in the Season One finale, Season Two will see Carmy, along with his motley crew of talented staff, revive the restaurant with a new focus. "In terms of the restaurant changing, it’s not that they’re going to lose all the charm of the restaurant," the show's creator Christopher Storer told Esquire about the coming season. "We’re going to deal with this in Season Two. It’s more like: How can we do this and maybe make some money? And maybe make it easier? And maybe—maybe—start from a place that’s not fucked? Instead of beating a dead horse and making this fuckin’ food that no one even wants to make, I see the promise in my sort of found family in the kitchen. Can we use that to build something freshly, now that we’ve all found each other in this stupid-ass system where things make no sense and people are putting veal stock on the top fuckin’ shelf of the walk-in?"

Though there is not yet an official release date for the next season yet, co-showrunners Storer and Calo stated that they “can’t wait to bring you all back to The Bear in 2023.” Until then, we’ll be ordering Italian Beef Sandwiches in Carm’s honor all year.
