“The Bear” Hasn’t Been Renewed For Season 3 Yet, but The Crew Already Has Plans
“The Bear” season two premiered on Hulu on June 22 with 10 new, high-octane episodes but, of course, lots of fans are already looking ahead toward the future. The second season ends with the titular restaurant on the brink of its official opening, and while the food is amazing, the people who work at The Bear still have a lot of issues to work out. All of it is making fans anxious for the next batch of episodes, however, “The Bear” has yet to be officially renewed by FX for season three. Although we do know the show’s crew is already making plans for it.
Creator Christopher Storer spoke to Esquire about the new season in an interview published on June 23. While discussing season two’s Christmas episode (done entirely in flashback), he revealed some plans for season three. Ayo Edebiri, whose character Sydney wasn’t in the episode, was with Storer and the crew behind the camera instead of in front of it while they were filming said episode. The creator told Esquire, “It was also great having Ayo on set with me that week – she’s going to direct a few episodes next year so she was an important set of fresh eyes.”
So even if FX hasn’t made an official announcement about “The Bear” season three, fans may find comfort in knowing that plans are already in place. Predicting when fans will be able to watch the next installment is a little more difficult, however. Though seasons one and two both premiered in June 2022 and 2023, season three could join the list of shows delayed by the ongoing writers’ strike and potential actors’ strike.
Ahead, find out everything else we know about “The Bear”‘s potential third season.
