This seemed like a no-brainer, but it is finally official.
The Bear fans can expect more food and drama coming their way–the critically-acclaimed FX series is coming back for a third season.
The FX and Hulu Exclusive series is set to return next year, as announced by FX Entertainment President Nick Grad. Like the prior two seasons, the third season will stream on Hulu in the US, Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories.
Grad said in a statement how proud FX and Hulu is to bring the series back to its fans.
“The Bear, which wowed audiences in its first season only to achieve even greater heights in season two, has become a cultural phenomenon,” he said. “We’re so proud to partner with , Joanna Calo, Josh Senior, and the rest of the creative team, as well as the brilliant cast led by , Ayo Edebiri and . 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.”
So far, the series has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards including Outstanding Comedy Series. The series has also launched its stars, including Edebiri, to new heights.
The second season followed the characters as they transformed the sandwich shop into a first-class restaurant. According to the official description:
Season two followed Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) and Richard “Richie” Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as they worked to transform their grimy sandwich joint into a next-level spot. As they stripped the restaurant down to its bones, the crew undertook transformational journeys of their own, each forced to confront the past and reckon with who they want to be in the future.
Of course, it turned out the only thing harder than running a restaurant was opening a new one, and the team had to juggle the insane bureaucracy of permits and contractors with the beauty and creative agony of menu planning. The transition brought a newfound focus on hospitality as well. As the entire staff was forced to come together in new ways, pushing the boundaries of their abilities and relationships, they also learned what it means to be in service, both to diners and each other.
The series is created and executive produced by Christopher Storer. Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai (via Super Frog), Josh Senior and star Matty Matheson executive produce. Tyson Bidner produces. FX Productions also serves as producer.
