The Bear Season 3: Everything we know

Since emerging as one of the best and most stressful shows on Hulu, The Bear has become a critical and awards juggernaut. The show, which follows a group of Chicago restaurant workers as they attempt to transform their family’s sandwich shop into a more high-class eatery, has been off the air for more than a year. Now, many fans are eagerly anticipating the show’s third season, both because they want to know where the show will go and because their lives have been too light on stress recently.

Reports have suggested that the show could film seasons 3 and 4 back to back. While FX has not officially picked The Bear up for a fourth season, it seems like everyone is hungry for more. Before we get ahead of ourselves, though, here’s what we know about season 3.

When will The Bear season 3 premiere?

The third season of The Bear is set to premiere in June of 2024. Unlike previous seasons, which had a more wintery feel, it seems like season 3 could be embracing the heat of a Chicago summer. And, as was the case with previous seasons, they’re planning to drop it all at once:

“It wasn’t lost on me, or anyone who worked on the show, that it was anxiety-inducing,” FX chairman John Landgraf said. “So we made a decision to drop the whole thing because it has a beautiful, uplifting ending.”

What will The Bear season 3 be about?

Season 2 of The Bear ended with Friends & Family night at The Bear, which means that although the restaurant is close to opening, it hasn’t officially yet. Although there aren’t a ton of hanging plot threads, we know that Carmy broke up with Claire and that they still owe Uncle Jimmy a pretty significant debt for the costs of the restaurant, so it better start turning a profit sooner rather than later.

By its very nature, though, The Bear could take its third season in a number of different directions, and it’s hard to say for sure what the third season will cover.

When did The Bear season 3 start filming?

The show’s third season started filming in February, which doesn’t give them a super long runway between when the show films and when it will air. With a show like this, though, most scenes don’t require too much post-production work, so the show should air exactly as expected.

Is there a trailer for The Bear season 3?

No official trailer for the third season has been released yet, but given the show’s June premiere date, one will likely drop sometime in May. Some fans did get a chance to see some early footage from the third season that involves Carmy freaking out about a wall of food critics who descend on the restaurant, which gives you at least some sense of what the third season will contain.

From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the films that defined Sandler's career to date

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and he's been part of some of the best comedy movies. He's also made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he could have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends. Here are the best Adam Sandler movies you need to watch now.

From Raging Bull to The Godfather Part II, these are the roles that have defined De Niro's long career
Robert De Niro in Goodfellas

There are few actors working today who can match the career that Robert De Niro has had. Some, like Brad Pitt or even George Clooney, have been in plenty of great movies, but even they don't stack up to the kind of career that De Niro has had over the last half a century. De Niro's success can be chalked up, at least in part, to his collaboration with great directors. De Niro has been in some of Martin Scorsese's best movies, and Scorsese isn't the only director who knows how to use him.

Really, though, it's De Niro himself who deserves a lot of the credit. Although he's been in plenty of schlock, the best movies of his career are up there with the best movies ever made. When he emerged on the scene, De Niro showed off his ability to play a range of different types, and his skills have only deepened as the years have gone by. Keep reading and find out what Robert De Niro movies you cannot miss if you have already.

The 12 best Sean Connery movies of all time
These films starring the Scottish actor rise above the rest
Sean Connery on The Rock

If you're too young to remember the hype around Sean Connery, ask your parents or grandparents what it was like to be a movie fan during his era of stardom. There wasn't a person on the planet who didn't immediately think of Connery when listing the actors with the biggest screen presence. But what is it that makes this man so incredibly iconic? Could it be because he never changes his voice for movies because "the emotions should be the same, internationally?" Perhaps it’s because of his unique Scottish accent that any novice impersonator is sure to try and mimic. All we know for sure is: Connery’s James Bond is -- for an overwhelming majority -- the best and most memorable of all 007 iterations in history.
Though his big on-screen break was as the devilishly handsome and smooth secret agent, real fans know that Sean Connery was much more than that. Besides being a respectful, earnest, and successful actor, Connery spent his first 25 years -- starting at the age of 7 -- working manual labor jobs and eventually joining the Royal Navy at 16. Truly a man of many hidden talents, he also took dance lessons for 11 years, was offered a soccer contract with Manchester United, and he also spent time working as a nude model for art students after being honorably discharged from the military.
There are so many reasons to love the late, great Sir Sean Connery, but we are here to praise him for his most memorable on-screen performances. Yes, James Bond will, of course, be mentioned, but we also bring out the later films in his career that made him so much himself. So mix yourself a vodka martini "shaken, not stirred" and help us celebrate the shining star that was Sean Connery. Here are the best of the best of Sean Connery movies.
