According to Deadline, the FX series The Bear will be a binge drop when the upcoming third season is released on Hulu. The next season will be coming in June of 2024. This release date follows the premiere of the show in 2022 as well as the second season in 2023.
Deadline claimed that when addressing the decision, FX boss John Landgraf said, “We all watched the first season and it wasn’t lost on me or anyone else who worked on the show that it’s a little anxiety inducing to watch that show and anxiety inducing are not the adjectives typically associated with hit television shows and Emmy awards. So we made a decision that we would drop the whole thing because for those of you who saw it, it has a really beautiful, very uplifting ending.”
Landgraf expanded on this, said Deadline. He went on to say, “When we came back for Season 2, we debated, since we knew now that we had a hit, can we milk it a little bit? Can we roll it out over weeks, more Bear is better? We then thought that’s a rotten thing to do, to change it up for the audience. The way that Chris makes it, even though the episodes are separate, there’s a whole vibe to every season so we decided not to change what we had already set in motion and I have no doubt that we’ll keep doing it because we did it in the past. Even if we could, I don’t think we’d change it now.”
However, despite the above information he gave, Landgraf refused to give away any teasers for season three. Deadline revealed that the show will continue to star Jeremy Allen White (Shameless) Ayo Edibiri (Bottoms), Ebon Moss-Bachrach (No Hard Feelings), and more.
