Let’s get this party started! One of the year’s finest new series is returning.
Is there room for more of The Bear? Chef, you got it right! FX has commissioned a second season of The Bear, which will be available on Hulu early next year.
Less than one month after its June 23 debut, the dark comedy received an early renewal. Given how well-received the program has been, this comes as no surprise. Rotten Tomatoes has given The Bear a perfect score, making it one of the finest new programs of the year.
Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), an award-winning chef, returns to Chicago to handle his late brother’s sandwich business in The Bear. A galaxy removed from good dining, the Original Beef of Chicagoland is a far cry from Richie, his brother’s closest friend and coworker (Ebon Moss-Bachrach).
Ayo Edebiri plays the role of the young chef hired by Carmy to put the kitchen back in order, Sydney (Ayo Edebiri). The restaurant, on the other hand, is a poisonous stew with a $300,000 debt that might explode at any time. In the middle of his anguish, Carmy finds it difficult to cope with it all.
Everything we know thus far about the second season of The Bear is included here.

The Bear has been formally renewed for a second season by FX, although no release date has been announced; instead, a window has been provided. Christopher Storer and Joanna Calo have announced that the second season of The Bear will premiere next year.
FX, our extremely amazing cast and crew, as well as everyone who tuned in, are all to be thanked in a statement. We couldn’t have done it without you.” It is with great anticipation that we look forward to welcoming you back to The Bear in 2023.”
The Bear season 2 cast
An award-winning chef who worked at “the greatest restaurant in the world” is the star of the Bear cast: Jeremy Allen White as Carmen Berzatto. He travels to Chicago to handle his late brother Mikey’s business, The Original Beef of Chicagoland.
Season 2 should bring back most of the main cast, including:
- Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Richard “Richie” Jerimovich, Mikey’s best friend and the shop’s manager
- Ayo Edebiri as Sydney Adamu, a Culinary Institute of America chef who takes a job staging at Original Beef
- Lionel Boyce as Marcus, the restaurant’s baker
- Liza Colón-Zayas as Tina, a cook
- Edwin Lee Gibson as Ebraheim, a cook
- Oliver Platt as Cicero, Carmy and Mikey’s uncle
- Abby Elliott as Natalie “Sugar” Berzatto, Carmy and Mikey’s sister
- Chris Witaske as Pete, Sugar’s husband
- Matty Matheson as Neil Fak, Richie’s friend and fixer
- Jon Bernthal as Michael “Mikey” Berzatto, Carmy and Sugar’s brother (in flashbacks)
Carmy’s old executive chef employer, Joel McHale, made a guest appearance in Season 1, as did Al-Anon meeting moderator, Molly Ringwald. Season 2 of The Bear may or may not include them again.
Season 2 is probably going to bring in some fresh faces. In the current day or in flashbacks, we may encounter more of Carmy’s family or fine dining restaurant coworkers. Richie, Sydney, and Marcus’s families might be introduced in the future (Tina’s son Angel has already been introduced).
The Bear season 2 plot and season 1 ending explained
It closed Season 1 with Carmy shutting Original Beef and putting up a “coming soon” sign at The Bear, a new eatery. In Season 2, Carmy and the culinary team are required to rearrange the premises, develop a new menu, and open to the general public.
With any experience in the food business or watching Top Chef, you know that openings are a stressful time for everyone involved. There is a lot of power in the hands of a young chef. As if the first episode wasn’t nerve-wracking enough! When Carmy was operating a business with chefs who had been doing it for years, she couldn’t keep her head above water. Then there’s the time in episode 7 when he snapped because of a failed internet ordering system?
Now that Carmy has decided to create his own business, he must carry the burden of duty. Everything from the menu to the décor to the service is his responsibility. Nothing to worry about – oh my my, there’s so much pressure.
Because of what transpired in the season finale of The Bear, he’s at this place. Richie delivers Mikey’s letter to Carmy after he is left stunned and bewildered by a cooktop fire. Spaghetti is on the menu, and the recipe calls for the smaller-capacity canned tomatoes.
In preparation for the restaurant’s grand opening, Carmy prepares a lunch for the whole kitchen crew, known as “family.” He finds a bundle of plastic-wrapped cash as he throws the tomatoes into the pan.
He gets the rest of the crew to help him open hundreds of cans, many of which contained $300,000 in cash. Uncle Cicero loaned the money to Mikey. So that Carmy might create his own restaurant. He put it aside.
Is there a way to get the money into the sealed cans without breaking them open? What’s the point of keeping it there? Doesn’t Carmy owe Cicero anything? For the time being, the family is tucking into dinner and the Bear is scheduled to open.
