‘The Bear’ returns for second season on FX

FX and Hulus The bear has become one of the surprise hits of the summer. That’s why, just three weeks after the show officially hit streaming, it’s been renewed for a second season. The show has a stacked cast, but an even more engaging premise. The show was created by Christopher Storer, who also collaborated on Frame and Eighth grade.

The bear Starring Jeremy Allen White as Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto, who has built a career for himself in some of the best cuisines the world has to offer. After his brother tragically commits suicide, he moves back to his hometown of Chicago, where he helps out at the family sandwich shop. Carmy is clearly unfulfilled in the world of lowbrow cuisine and pine for his longtime career. He is also usually at odds with the staff and many of his family.

The show seemingly came out of nowhere, but it has managed to get absolutely rave reviews. As of right now, it has a whopping 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, which you don’t see very often. That points to universal acclaim. It also has an 86 out of 100 on Metacritic. No wonder it managed to land a second season.

Details on what exactly will happen in the second season have not been released, but it will likely pick up where season one leaves off. We see the pressure mounting for Carmy, from workplace violence to a bit of an issue with the IRS. Through it all, it’s very clear that Carmy isn’t sure how to do it. His mental state is in a pretty precarious situation. There’s also no word on when season 2 will premiere, but it’s likely we’ll hear more news soon.
