FX announced today that The Bear has been picked up for Season 2. The good news comes three weeks after the drama released its 8-episode freshman run exclusively on Hulu. The half-hour series premiered in June to widespread praise from both audiences and critics.

"We are so grateful to FX, our insanely talented cast, our crew who worked hard, fast, and in the dead of winter, not to mention everyone who watched. And we can't wait to bring you all back to The Bear in 2023," said co-showrunners and executive producers Christopher Storer and Joanna Calo.

The Bear follows Carmen 'Carmy' Berzatto, a young chef from the fine dining world who moves back to Chicago to run his family's sandwich shop after a death in the family. Out of his comfort zone, Carmy must grapple with the loss of his brother while balancing small business ownership, his stubborn kitchen staff, and his strained family relationships.
