Yes, Chef! “The Bear” Will Return for 3rd Season, in 2024, Cooking Up New Stories in the Kitchen


I kind of thought that was it for “The Bear.”

But there will be a season 3 despite all the plotlines having been tied up neatly at the end of Season 2.

“The Bear” is a huge hit on Hulu with Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Oliver Platt. In season 2, we got to meet Carmie’s family including his rampaging mother played by Jamie Lee Curtis.

If we ever have the Emmy Awards, “The Bear” Season 1 is up for several. But that season was long ago at this point. Season 2 has already run and will be eligible for the following Emmys, likely next September. Confused? Don’t get me started!

Maybe we’ll see more of Carmie’s sister, played by Abby Elliott (ex-SNL). She’s the real life daughter of Chris Elliott (Letterman, Schitt’s Creek, etc) and the granddaughter of legend radio man Bob Elliott, half of the comedy duo from the 50s and 60s, Bob and Ray.
