The Bear will return.

It's a terrifying sentence for campers, but for fans of the FX-produced, Hulu-streamed series of the same name, it couldn't be more exciting. If you count yourself as one of those fans, you've been waiting for a release date for Season Three ever since the second one ended, and now, we can report a release date...

At least, a rough one.

What is the release date for The Bear: Season 3?

Our latest info on the restaurant drama comes from FX's own chairman, John Landgraf, at the Television Critics Association’s winter 2024 press tour. Reported by Variety, Landgraf announced that the third season of the hot new show will land on FX and Hulu in June of of 2024.

Just when in June? Sorry reader, he didn't say.

How many episodes will be in The Bear: Season 3?

With eight episodes in the first season of The Bear and ten in the second, it would make sense to hope for an even longer season the third time around, but we can't confirm if that's the case either way. An official episode count didn;t make it into Landgraf's comments, however, a bit of exciting news regarding those episodes did.

Like Season 2, The Bear: Season 3 will be available to stream all at once on Hulu.

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

Who will guest star in The Bear: Season 3?

Unfortunately, here too is a question that we don't have the answer to yet. With a mountain of guest stars in Season 2 (Popverse's Tiffany Babb even thought it was too much), it's understandable to assume that at least a few familiar faces would be cameoing in the next chapter. If Landgraf knows whether that's true or not, he's not letting on.

"Unfortunately, I can’t [tell you]," he said. "I was surprised as you were when the Christmas episode came through the door."

If you don't know which episode he's talking about, we won't spoil it for you here. Suffice to say, though, that it is well worth watching (or rewatching) before this June. The Bear seasons 1 and 2 are streaming now on Hulu.

Already done with everyone's favorite chaos in the kitchen? Here's what to watch and read after The Bear.
