The acclaimed restaurant drama series “The Bear” has received a third season order from FX, which airs the show exclusively on Hulu.
“The Bear” has received raves from fans and critics alike, not to mention several awards, so it’s no surprise the show will get a third season.
Season one, which premiered in June 2022, aired eight episodes, while season 2, which debuted this year in June had 10 episodes.
No word on how many episodes season 3 will have, but with the writer’s strike ended, the story can start taking shape.
FX is aiming for a late 2024 debut for season three, but a lot depends on when the SAG-AFTRA strike ends.
“’The Bear’, which wowed audiences in its first season only to achieve even greater heights in season two, has become a cultural phenomenon,” said Nick Grad, President, FX Entertainment.
“We’re so proud to partner with Christopher Storer, Joanna Calo, Josh Senior, and the rest of the creative team, as well as the brilliant cast led by Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. What they and the crew have done is truly remarkable, and we and our partners at Hulu join fans in looking forward to the next chapter in the story of ‘The Bear’.”
