The Bear season 3 has landed, launching Carmy (Jeremy Allen White) and co back onto our screens.


The third season follows the gang as they do what it takes to elevate their restaurant to the highest level, while also battling to stay in business.

A trailer was recently released for the new outing, giving fans a taste of what they can expect, including financial trouble for The Bear and the return of Claire (Molly Gordon), Carmy's romantic interest from season 2.

He also offers Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) a partnership in the restaurant, "so that you can push me and I can push you".

Ahead of the third season’s premiere date, it was reported by Deadline that the show has already been picked up for a fourth season.

The show was initially scheduled to premiere its third season on Hulu and FX on Thursday (27th June) and on Disney Plus in the UK on Friday, but the release date was pushed forward last minute.

The show was renewed for season 3 back in November 2023, with FX entertainment president Nick Grad saying at the time: "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."

He continued: "What they and the crew have done is truly remarkable, and we and our partners at Hulu and Disney Plus join fans in looking forward to the next chapter in the story of The Bear."

How many episodes are there in The Bear season 3?

There are 10 half-hour episodes in total.

They will all become available to watch from 27th June on Disney Plus.

We also hope to see Edwin Lee Gibson return as Ebraheim, although there's no word on his involvement, and we'd expect to see Jon Bernthal feature in flashback form as Carmy's brother, Mikey.

A set video also appeared to confirm the return of Will Poulter as chef Luca, who popped up in season 2 episode 4, Honeydew.

Season 2 also treated fans to a number of celebrity cameos, including appearances from Sarah Paulson, Olivia Colman and Jamie Lee Curtis, and it’s possible more celebrity appearances could be on the cards in season 3, but fans will have to wait and see who might be drafted in.

In season 3, it's all eyes on The Bear, with Carmy, Sydney, Richie and co determined to make their fine dining establishment a success.

"It's a losing battle every single day in the restaurant business," reads the synopsis. "Carmy pushes himself harder than ever, and demands excellence from his crew, who do their best to match his intensity."

As you'd expect, his "quest for culinary excellence will propel the crew to new levels and stress the bonds that hold the restaurant together".

Expect a growing team and an "ever-changing landscape", with plenty of "new challenges and opportunities".

The synopsis adds: "Our chefs have learned that every second counts, but this season we'll find out if they have what it takes to make it to tomorrow."
