FX’s ‘The Bear’ Season 3 Will Release Sooner Than Expected

Last November, Disney announced that the critically acclaimed, award-winning hit series FX’s “The Bear” had been renewed for a third season and filming on Season 3 would begin in early 2024.  FX boss John Landgraf recently announced that the third season will launch in June 2024, making a quick turnaround time for the upcoming season, especially after the Hollywood strikes.

Landgraf also added that the studio plans to launch all episodes at once, as per previous seasons.

“We all watched the first season and it wasn’t lost on me or anyone else who worked on the show that it’s a little anxiety inducing to watch that show and anxiety inducing are not the adjectives typically associated with hit television shows and Emmy awards. So we made a decision that we would drop the whole thing because for those of you who saw it, it has a really beautiful, very uplifting ending,” he said.

“When we came back for Season 2, we debated, since we knew now that we had a hit, can we milk it a little bit? Can we roll it out over weeks, more Bear is better? We then thought that’s a rotten thing to do, to change it up for the audience. The way that Chris makes it, even though the episodes are separate, there’s a whole vibe to every season so we decided not to change what we had already set in motion and I have no doubt that we’ll keep doing it because we did it in the past. Even if we could, I don’t think we’d change it now,” he added.

“The Bear” Season 3

Plot details for the third season remain under wraps.  Jeremy Allen White who plays Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto on the series recently told Deadline he’s hoping for a season 3 chockful of guest stars, one that rivals season 2 episode 6’s “Fishes” which saw a ton of noted TV and movie stars playing Carmy’s family members, i.e. Jon Bernthal (as Mikey, Carmy’s dead brother), Bob Odenkirk as Uncle Lee, Sarah Paulson as Cousin Michelle, John Mulaney as Cousin Michelle’s partner Stevie, Gillian Jacobs as Richie’s then-wife Tiffany, and Jamie Lee Curtis as Donna Berzatto, Mikey and Carmy’s alcoholic mother, as well as Carmy’s sister Natalie Berzatto (Abby Elliott), Uncle Jimmy (Oliver Platt), and Neil (Matty Matheson).

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.

FX’s “The Bear” was created by Christopher Storer (“Ramy,” “Eighth Grade”), who acts as executive producer alongside Joanna Calo (“BoJack Horseman,” “Undone”), Hiro Murai (“Atlanta,” “Station Eleven”) of Super Frog, Josh Senior and Matty Matheson, with Tyson Bidner (“Ramy”) serving as producer. The series is produced by FX Productions.

The first two seasons of “The Bear” are available to stream now on Disney+ in many countries including the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, and streams on Hulu in the United States.
