The second season of the Golden Globe-nominated series The Bear is gearing up to begin production later this month as the filming schedule is officially out. FX has already confirmed that the second season will premiere this Summer.
As per the latest official schedule, ‘The Bear’ Season 2 will begin filming on February 21, 2023, in Chicago, Illinois, and will take two months to officially wrap on April 28, 2023. The second season episode count is revealed to be two more than the 8-episode first season, so Season 2 will be 10 episodes long.
The series follows Carmen Berzatto, a brilliant young chef from the fine-dining world, who is forced to return home 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 reality of trading in Michelin-starred restaurants for the small business' kitchen filled with strong-willed and recalcitrant staff and his strained familial relationships, all while dealing with the aftermath of his brother's suicide.
Starring Jeremy Allen White in the leading role, the first season was the most-watched comedy series in FX's network history. The series secured multiple nominations in many categories across many awards and Jeremy Allen won the best actor award for the series at Critics' Choice Awards 2022 and Golden Globe Awards 2023. The series has currently received nominations at the Writers Guild of America Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and Satellite Awards.
The first season premiered on June 23, 2022, on Hulu, and also stars Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, and Abby Elliott in the regular roles. The cast also includes Edwin Lee Gibson, Oliver Platt, José Cervantes, Matty Matheson, Corey Hendrix, Richard Esteras, and Chris Witaske.
In the final episode of the first season, Carmy attends an Al-Anon meeting and discusses how he got into the restaurant business after his brother refused to let him work at The Beef. A fight breaks out at the Beef's bachelor party, and Richie is arrested for nearly killing a guest. Richie is charged with aggravated assault rather than manslaughter after the man recovers. Richie hands Carmy a letter from Michael that includes a spaghetti recipe and mentions that they use smaller cans of tomatoes because they taste better. Carmy opens one of the cans and discovers hundred-dollar bills hidden inside; the restaurant is closed for the day as the chefs open all of the cans and discover more hidden money. Sydney returns after Carmy apologizes via text and offers suggestions for improving her risotto dish. Carmy hangs a sign indicating the closure of 'The Beef', and that a new restaurant named 'The Bear' will be opening soon.
Created by Christopher Storer, who also serves as executive producer, The Bear is produced by FX Productions with Super Frog's Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai, Nate Matteson, and Josh Senior as executive producers, and Tyson Bidner serving as producer alongside Matty Matheson as co-producer.
