FX has announced a second season of “The Bear”, which follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), a young chef from the fine dining world, 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 soul-crushing realities of small business ownership, his strong-willed and recalcitrant kitchen staff and his strained familial relationships, all while grappling with the impact of his brother’s suicide.
“’The Bear’ has exceeded our wildest creative, critical and commercial expectations,” said Eric Schrier, FX Entertainment President. “We deeply appreciate the brilliant work led by Creator and Co-Showrunner Christopher Storer and Co-Showrunner Joanna Calo. Jeremy Allen White’s lead performance is spectacular, as are those of his co-stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce and Liza Colón-Zayas. We can’t wait to get to work on season two.”
“The Bear” was created by Christopher Storer (“Ramy”), who also serves as Co-Showrunner, Executive Producer, Writer and Director alongside Co-Showrunner, Executive Producer, Writer and Director Joanna Calo (“BoJack Horseman”). Hiro Murai (“Atlanta”) and Nate Matteson (“Station Eleven”) of Super Frog and Josh Senior also serve as Executive Producers. The series is produced by FX Productions.
Ten episodes of “The Bear” were produced in season one.
