  • ‘The Bear’ team is reportedly shooting additional episodes.
  • Sources are pointing to an early Season 4 renewal.
  • Yet there is also thought that this could mean the show will end with that fourth season.

The Bear’ has been one of TV’s recent unalloyed successes, enjoying huge viewing figures on FX/Hulu (and Disney+ outside the US) and a wealth of awards (including a number of Emmys).

It’s not surprising then, that FX would be looking to have the creative team make more episodes when the cast and crew are still available.

But there could be a good news/bad news situation as Chicago news outlets such as Reel Chicago are reporting that the additional episodes could signal that a fourth season has been quietly ordered to be shot back to back with the third (and potentially launched next year) –– with the aim of wrapping up the show.

It would be sad to say goodbye to such a good show, but worth it to have the series end while it is still wildly successful and creatively on fire.

‘The Bear’ is the story of Carmen ‘Carmy’ Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), an ambitious young chef working in the world of fine dining. But when his brother dies and leaves him in charge of the family sandwich joint in Chicago, Carmy is forced to pivot, looking to make a success of the chaotic local favorite.

In Season 2, Carmy, Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach), Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) and the gang launch an ambitious attempt to transform the venue into the sort of high-end restaurant where Carmy had been working.

FX has yet to reveal any story details for Season 3.

Thanks to the show’s success and their own awards haul, the cast are very much in demand these days.

Jeremy Allen White scored plenty of kudos for his role in wrestling movie ‘The Iron Claw’ and has plenty of interest in him making other film work.

Co-star Edebiri has become a huge rising star in the time since she started on the series. She lent her voice to ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem’ last year and this year alone has movies such as ‘Inside Out 2’, ‘Omni Loop’ due out. She’s filming James L. Brooks’ ‘Ella McCay’ and even had to drop out of a role in Marvel’s ‘Thunderbolts’ because of her packed schedule.

And series creator/showrunner/frequent director Christopher Storer is in almost as much demand as his actors –– he recently signed on to write and direct a signed on to do write and direct a feature adaptation of Amor Towles’ ‘The Lincoln Highway’, about two kids who go in search of their mother but find themselves waylaid when one brother’s friends escape from juvenile detention and show up with plans of them own.

When will ‘The Bear’ be back on TV?

The third season of ‘The Bear’ will launch in June.
