Last year FX released a brand new series from Christopher Storer called The bear that would be a big hit for the network. The bear is one of the most acclaimed series of 2022, and it’s doing well on this year’s awards circuit. The series stars Jeremy Allen White (Shameless) and just this week, the actor won the award for best actor in a musical or comedy series at the Golden Globes. It’s also up for numerous other awards, including the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Producers Guild Awards. There haven’t been many updates on the highly anticipated second season, but we finally have an answer to the question of when the second season will be released. That was revealed during the FX panel at the TCA The bear returns this summer and will run for ten episodes. While we don’t have a set date, it’s great to know we won’t have to wait that long to find out what happens next in the series.
What’s The bear As regards?
FX’s new original series The bear follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Allen White), a young gourmet chef, who comes home to Chicago to run his family sandwich shop – The Original Beef of Chicagoland – after a heartbreaking death in his family. A world away from what he’s used to, Carmy must balance the crushing realities of small business ownership, his strong-willed and unruly kitchen staff, and his strained family relationships, while grappling with the fallout from his brother’s suicide. The bear is about food, family, the madness of the grind, the beauty of Sense of Urgency and the steep slippery downsides. As Carmy fights to transform The Original Beef of Chicagoland as well as himself, he teams up with a rough-and-tumble kitchen team who eventually reveal himself to be his chosen family.
Alongside White, this half-hour series stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce, and Liza Colón-Zayas, with Edwin Lee Gibson and Matty Matheson in recurring roles.
