Another serving of The Bear? Yes, chef! FX has booked a second season of The Bear for Hulu. The decision came less than a month after the June 23 debut of the dark comedy.
It is hardly surprising, given the show’s critical praise. The Bear has a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and is immediately regarded as one of the year’s greatest new television series.
The Bear features an award-winning chef, Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto, as he returns to Chicago to operate the sandwich restaurant owned by his recently departed brother.
He considers The Original Beef of Chicagoland to be a world apart from elegant dining, notably due to the refractory staff, led by his brother’s closest buddy Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach).
Carmy employs a young, trained cook named Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) and depends on her to implement a more organized system in the kitchen to restore order.
However, the restaurant’s poisonous stew of $300,000 in debt is ready to explode anytime. Carmy strives to cope with everything among his anguish. Here is all we know so far about season 2 of The Bear.
The Bear Season 2 Release Date
The FX network has officially renewed The Bear for a second season beginning July 14, 2022. The renewal news arrives weeks after the season one conclusion, which debuted on June 23, 2022. The renewal was also announced via the show’s official Twitter account.

The FX network has not yet announced the actual premiere date of Season 2 of The Bear. On the plus side, it is anticipated that manufacturing will commence later this year.
As a result, the fans can rest assured that the future season will be aired sooner than expected, as the network made the renewal news on time.
If we were to speculate, we would estimate that the release date will fall between early and mid-2023. Based on the release date trend of the prior season, the series will presumably premiere in June 2023.
The Bear Season 2 Cast
The anticipated cast of The Bear season 2 is as follows:
- Jeremy Allen White being Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto
- Liza Colón-Zayas in the role of Tina
- Ebon Moss-Bachrach will act as Richard “Richie” Jerimovich
- Abby Elliott will play the role of Natalie “Sugar” Berzatto
- Lionel Boyce will perform as Marcus
- Ayo Edebiri in the role of Sydney Adamu
The Bear Season 2 Plot
Carmy discovered the parting note Mikey left for him in the season 1 finale of The Bear, which led him to the cash buried in sealed tomato cans.
Carmy is motivated to temporarily shut down The Original Beef to start a new restaurant, The Bear, by discovering this buried gem.
Creator Christopher Storer has indicated that Carmy would utilize the money his brother gave him as seed money for the new restaurant, although Mikey still owes Jimmy (Oliver Platt) money.
Calo’s remarks indicate that the second season of The Bear will continue to explore the delicate connection between the two brothers, with Carmy struggling with the sadness of his loss and Bernthal perhaps returning for another flashback.
The “differences” that Calo refers to are presumably the struggle between fine and informal dining, the difference between Carmy’s family problems, and the animosity between the restaurant workers.
These threads should continue throughout the second season. Based on what the showrunners have revealed thus far, it appears that The Bear season 2 will be a good follow-up to the first season.
Carmy prepares “family,” the meal shared by the kitchen crew before the restaurant opens. When he pours the tomatoes into the pan, he finds a sum of cash wrapped in plastic.
He coerces the remainder of the crew into opening dozens more cans, many of which contain additional wads of cash totaling $300,000. This is the money that Uncle Cicero lent to Mikey. He hid it away so Carmy could launch his restaurant.
The situation raises several issues, such as how the money got into the sealed cans. Why is it hidden? And doesn’t Carmy owe Cicero anything? Currently, the family is feasting, and the Bear will open soon.
