‘The Bear’ Season 3: Everything To Know About FX On Hulu’s Next Culinary Chapter (Update For May 2024)

The heat remained on in the kitchen for The Bear‘s second outing, which was quite a feat given that the kitchen-inside-the-show remained shuttered for most of the runtime. The FX on Hulu show didn’t certainly have to struggle for a renewal, and filming began in February of this year. The production has always been speedy and doesn’t rely upon special effects, so the season will come out faster than some had perhaps expected, and that’s all good.

Since the last time we checked in on Carmy Berzatto and his fellow Chefs, this show’s three most magnetic presences (Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach) each took home well-deserved Emmy awards. Now that they are in-demand stars (and this has been a long time coming for both White and Moss-Bachrach, who have been toiling away in TV for well over a decade), what can we expect from the third season?


First, let’s visit a question that’s perhaps on many people’s minds: will the series remain in bingeworthy format? According to Variety, FX chairman John Landgraf relayed how he harbored “no doubt” that this season will be released in full at once. “It wasn’t lost on me or anyone who worked on the show that it was anxiety-inducing,” he declared of that choice. “So we made a decision to drop the whole thing because it has a beautiful, uplifting ending.”

Jeremy Allen White alluded to how Carmy is getting back to his old kitchen tricks now that the new restaurant is up and running. We can assume that this means he will escape the refrigerator since White planned “to spend a fair amount of time getting together with some chefs.” As a result, we can expect much more culinary action and conflict because “we’re going to go back to that functioning kitchen atmosphere that we had in the first.” (Please let Richie get stabbed in the butt again, so we can watch him walk it off differently.)

Questions do remain however, such as whether Carmy will continue to allow himself to be distracted by romance and, on the same note, whether the writers will begin to draw he and Sydney closer together. On an even more stressful note, that loan money from Jimmy will come due awfully quickly, so it remains to be seen whether Carmy/Natalie can pay back that loan within 18 months as promised. Good god, that’s a terrible timeline, but it will help create more fantastic TV tension — especially if Carmy decides to prioritize a Michelin Star over everything else, which will either infuriate or invigorate everybody.

UPDATE: As of May 9, FX has also provided an official description:

Season three of FX’s The Bear follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) and Richard “Richie” Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as they do what it takes to elevate The Bear, their beef stand turned fine dining establishment, to the highest level, all while doing their best just to stay in business. It’s a losing battle every single day in the restaurant business. Carmy pushes himself harder than ever, and demands excellence from his crew, who do their best to match his intensity.

Their quest for culinary excellence will propel the crew to new levels and stress the bonds that hold the restaurant together. As the team grows in size, each member will strive to reach a greater level of service within their role. In the restaurant industry, you’re never on solid ground, and with that ever-changing landscape comes new challenges and opportunities. Our chefs have learned that every second counts, but this season we’ll find out if they have what it takes to make it to tomorrow.


Surely, cameos will be in plentiful supply again, and we can only hope to see another brief appearance from Joel McHale’s nightmare Chef. Returning cast members include the main three personalities — White, Ayo Edebiri, and Bachrach — because they are absolutely essential main courses. Other vital ingredients include Lionel Boyce (Marcus) and Abby Elliot (Natalie). There’s no telling whether we have seen the last of Jon Bernthal as Mikey, but Jamie Lee Curtis and Will Poulter would be extra icing on the upcoming cake.

Release Date

June 27, 2024. It’s happening then, Chefs.


We are not that fortunate yet. However, here’s Jeremy Allen White telling Jimmy Kimmel about filming that tense Christmas episode and (separately) how he disastrously carved a turkey for the holidays.
