The summer is going to be a little more exciting now that season 2 of The Bear is about to start. The sleeper hit is about a struggling restaurant in Chicago and the strange people who work there. They depend on the restaurant and its own brand of chaos.
After Jeremy Allen White won a Golden Globe for his role as Chef Carmen, aka Carmy, the show goes into its second season with more momentum and what seem to be new storylines.
This is because Carmy has decided to close the restaurant his late brother started and reopen it as something that better fits Carmy’s vision of the future.
So, what else can fans look forward to in the new episodes besides a different name on the building and a different menu on the table? Here’s what we know about season 2 of The Bear.
When Will the Bear Season 2 Be Released?
Almost a year after the first season premiere, on June 22, 2023, the FX comedy-drama will debut on Hulu exclusively.
Through its partnership with Hulu-rival Star, international audiences will have access to the show on Disney+ outside the United States.
What is the Storyline for the Bear Season 2?
After Michael’s death, Carmy rebuilt his family’s restaurant in Season 1. After confronting his professional and personal struggles, the second season will focus on Carmy’s hopeful plans for his restaurant, The Bear, which will replace The Beef.
He’ll open the restaurant with the same ragtag kitchen crew that has accepted him and his new management style. Most importantly, Carmy shares his ambitious vision with Sydney, his trusted sous chef who helps the restaurant through rough patches.
Season 2 will likely continue the fast-paced chaos of running a new restaurant, despite Season 1’s hopeful ending. Due to his unbalanced work-life and ongoing grief over his brother, Carmy will need to lean on both his work and blood families.
With Season 2’s expanded episode order, supporting characters like Tina (Liza Colón-Zayas) and Neil Fak (Matty Matheson) may get more backstory.
Here is the official synopsis:
Season two follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) and Richard “Richie” Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as they work to transform their grimy sandwich joint into a next-level spot. As they strip the restaurant down to its bones, the crew undertakes 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 turns out the only thing harder than running a restaurant is opening a newone, and the team must juggle the insane bureaucracy of permits and contractors with the beauty and creative agony of menu planning. The transition brings a newfound focus onhospitality as well. As the entire staff is forced to come together in new ways, pushing the boundaries of their abilities and relationships, they also learn what it means to be in service, both to diners and each other.
