Season 1 swept the first of two Emmys ceremonies this year, with the second hoping to follow in the same footsteps.

1. When will The Bear Season 3 Premiere on Hulu?

All 10 episodes of The Bear’s third season premiered on Hulu at 9 p.m. EST on June 26, a whole day earlier than the planned release date of June 27. This unexpected treat surely got fans buzzing with excitement!

If you weren’t aware, drop everything, because it’s time to binge!!

In February, FX Chairman John Landgraf spoke at a Television Critics Association event and confirmed that the episodes would debut in June and all simultaneously, like the first two seasons.

“I have no doubt we’ll just keep doing it,” Landgraf said, joking that it may also be the favored release strategy for those who watch religiously as the show can be “a little anxiety-inducing.” So, get ready for more of this thrilling release strategy in the future!

3. Upcoming Plot for The Bear Season 3

Season three will pick up with Carmy, Richie, and Sydney as they try to raise the standard of the restaurant—including turning it from a gritty sandwich shop into fine dining. The everyday struggles of restaurant life create a steep climb for the kitchen staff as Carmy raises his intensity and his staff tries to keep up.

“The quest for culinary excellence will propel the crew to new levels and stress the bonds that hold the restaurant together. As the team grows in size, each member will strive to reach a greater level of service within their role,” the description reads.

In the restaurant industry, you’re never on solid ground, and with that ever-changing landscape comes new challenges and opportunities. 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.”

4. A rundown for The Bear Season 2 for the uninitiated!

Given what’s at stake with the evening’s service, it’s little wonder that Carmy snaps in the final episode of The Bear season 2. His breakdown is personified by a hallucination of his abusive former Chef de Cuisine (Joel McHale) whom he believes is sitting among the guests.

As the diners arrive and the orders start backing up, he flies off the handle at Sydney. She does a great job calming Carmy down, and everything goes smoothly during the rest of the service until he walks into the chiller and gets locked in. Inside, he spirals, wondering if he isn’t good enough or dedicated enough.

Carmy misidentifies his success as a result of not having the “distractions” of a relationship in the past, and quite cruelly takes out that perceived failure on Claire.

Claire, upon hearing this, tells him she is sorry that he felt that way and walks away, leaving Carmy standing in the fridge, desperately calling her name. Right after the near fight with Richie, Carmy plays Claire’s voicemail, very supportive and in love, before he deleted it and broke down.
