The Bear Season 3 Release Date, Teaser Trailer, Development Details, And More

"The Bear" has been a powerhouse for both FX and Hulu. The Chicago-based series starring Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edebiri became one of the network's most-watched shows when it first arrived, and its Season 2 premiere is the streamer's most-watched debut to date. The initial outing primarily followed White's character, Carmy Berzatto, as he dealt with small business challenges, familial drama, and mentoring Edebiri's Sydney Adamu when he took over the family sandwich shop after the tragic death of his brother. The next season chronicled the revamp of the restaurant while everyone dealt with their own personal journeys. Both critically acclaimed runs left viewers hungry for more, and after patiently waiting to be served information on the show's future, fans have confirmation that "The Bear" will be back for Season 3.

The renewal was announced on November 6, 2023, and FX seems very excited for audiences to dig into more episodes. "'The Bear,' which wowed audiences in its first season only to achieve even greater heights in season two, has become a cultural phenomenon," president of FX Entertainment Nick Grad said. "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.'"

With more of the hit series on the way, it's the perfect time for fans to see what's on the menu for Season 3 of "The Bear."

When will The Bear Season 3 be released?

Good news, cousin. We'll get to savor "The Bear's" delicious narrative incredibly soon. During the Television Critics Association's winter 2024 press tour, FX chairman John Landgraf announced that Season 3 of "The Bear" would hit Hulu sometime in June 2024. A few months after that initial statement, Hulu released a quick teaser that revealed the official release date. If you're starving for more of Carmy and Richie's profanity-laden banter, it'll get served up for your viewing enjoyment on June 27. All episodes will drop on the same day, which will be a fantastic feast for "Bear" fans everywhere.

What is the plot of The Bear Season 3?

After watching the second season finale, many fans are probably eager to see how things are going with the restaurant after the wild yet promising opening night, along with how everyone is doing based on the changes they experienced. Those who can't get enough of "The Bear" will be curious to see how Carmy deals with his personal issues and whether or not he can bounce back from some of the mistakes he made getting the new venture up and running, like getting locked inside a walk-in refrigerator, which he could have prevented beforehand, and breaking up with Claire (Molly Gordon) in the heat of the moment.

Despite things getting a bit stressful, Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edibiri) managed to impress not only her father but those at home watching her exceptional efforts in taking over for Carmy. Richie Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) also went through a promising adjustment period on the series, graduating from cleaning forks to helping run the kitchen floor while learning to get along with those he has butted heads with in the past. Based on what went down, there are certainly plenty of appetizing storylines to dish out in Season 3.

Who is starring in The Bear Season 3?

All the fan-favorite characters from "The Bear" are returning for Season 3. Jeremy Allen White is putting the apron back on to play the uptight Carmy while Ayo Edebiri — who's been keeping busy with projects like "Bottoms" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem" — will return as his long-suffering right hand, Sydney. And of course, Ebon Moss-Bachrach will return as the irascible Cousin Richie before we see him playing Ben Grimm in "The Fantastic Four."

Abby Elliott (Natalie), Lionel Boyce (Marcus), and Matty Matheson (Neil) will all return to their respective kitchen roles, and we're assuming we'll also see Liza Colón-Zayas (Tina) and Edwin Lee Gibson (Ebraheim). As for additional names, the show has been known to feature a number of guest stars like Oliver Platt, Jon Bernthal, and Will Poulter, as well as a slew of cameos from the likes of Bob Odenkirk, Olivia Colman, Jaimie Lee Curtis, and Sarah Paulson. It seems almost guaranteed that Poulter will return as Chef Luca, as the actor was filmed on the set of "The Bear" Season 3. And speaking with Deadline, Jeremy Allen White said he'd love to see Curtis and Colman return, and he also hopes that maybe the show could feature turns from Sam Rockwell and John Turturro

Is there a trailer for The Bear Season 3?

In May 2024, FX released two separate teasers for "The Bear" Season 3. The first was mostly just to set a vibe, with Carmy entering his restaurant's kitchen, turning the lights on, and prepping for the day ahead, all while accompanied by Tangerine Dream's "Love on a Real Train." After Carmy looks straight into the camera, we see the other side of the kitchen, the front of the restaurant, and an aerial shot of Chicago.

While the second teaser is also light on plot, it does throw us right into a busy restaurant, with our characters scrambling to serve the best food possible. We watch as Sydney calls for the kitchen staff to fire up cavatelli and wagyu, Ritchie tries to keep customers happy, and Carmy loses his cool. "This is a dysfunctional kitchen," Sydney says, to which Carmy and Richie reply in sync, "Show me a functional one." Ah, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Who is directing The Bear Season 3?

There is a good chance that Christopher Storer and Joanna Calo will be two of the people sitting in the director's chair for "The Bear" Season 3, considering they've done such a good job during the first two seasons. Calo, who also works on the comedy-drama as an executive producer and writer, has directed five entries over both runs. Storer, the series creator, has also served as director on the series for twelve of its 18 episodes, earning nominations for the DGA's 2023 Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Comedy Series and the 2023 Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for the episode "Review."

It is currently unknown if any new directors will be recruited to helm any of the third season's entries, considering only one other individual outside of Storer or Calo has been called upon to do so. Ramy Youssef, creator and star of the series "Ramy," directed an entry in the first season. Whether they bring new chefs into the mix or let the staff they already have continue making well-crafted episodes, audiences can expect that the right people will be chosen to nail the recipe for a third course.

Who is writing The Bear Season 3?

In addition to creating the successful series and serving as its director, Christopher Storer is also one of the show's writers and will most certainly continue in this role on Season 3. It's doubtful he would stop, considering his work in this department has gotten the attention of the Emmy Awards, giving him another nomination, this time for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, for penning the episode "System."

It should also be expected that executive producer and director Joanna Calo, who also has writing credits on the show, would return in the same capacity. Sofya Levitsky-Weitz, Karen Joseph Adcock, Catherine Schetina, Rene Gube, and Stacy Osei-Kuffour were also in the WGA award-winning writer's room and could very well be involved with the cultivation of the next highly anticipated set of episodes. Whatever happens, it seems safe to assume that the most qualified people will be in the kitchen to cook up "The Bear" Season 3.

Who is producing The Bear Season 3?

You may not realize it, but it takes a lot of chefs to make "The Bear" the small-screen masterpiece it's become known as, and in order to keep the rave reviews coming in, they'll need those who know how to get the recipe right. The show's producers have not gone unnoticed, earning distinguished accolades from the Film Independent Spirit Awards and PGA Awards, as well as an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series.

The talented team of executive producers cooking up all that acclaim and award attention includes creator Christopher Storer and fellow writer and director Joanna Calon. Rounding out the rest of the executive producers on staff who are presumably coming back for another season include Josh Senior, Tyson Bidner, Hiro Murai, Rene Gube, Kelly Galuska, Cooper Wehde, Ayo Edibiri, Brian McGinn, and Jason Sterman. It's probably also a safe guess that supervising producer Stacei Osei-Kuffour, consulting producer Alex Russell, and culinary producer Courtney Storer will also be back for the third course.

Where you can watch previous seasons of The Bear

Folks looking to ease the hunger pain that lingers while they wait for "The Bear" Season 3 may have trouble finding something to fit their appetite for compelling drama mixed with humor, so while they wait, it may be an opportune time to revisit the first two seasons in their entirety while waiting to be seated for the next run. Fortunately, there are 18 episodes available to rewatch, and both seasons of "The Bear" can be found on the streaming service Hulu, the series' first and only home. While they can't make the time pass more quickly, they most assuredly provide the proper ingredients for a feast-worthy binge session certain to hold fans over until the next set of episodes are cooked to perfection.
