They're expected to be joined by the returning Molly Gordon (Claire), Edwin Lee Gibson (Ebraheim), Corey Hendri (Sweeps), Oliver Platt (Cicero), José Cervantes (Angel), Richard Esteras (Manny), and Chris Witaske (Pete).

John Mulaney has been cagey about if he'll return, so we'll see. And despite his character being dead, we wouldn't be surprised if Jon Bernthal makes another appearance.

Is The Bear based on a real restaurant?

Watch on YouTube

The Bear is based on a real-life Chicago restaurant called Mr. Beef, which series creator Christopher Storer was (and is, I imagine) a frequent diner - as well as friend of the owner's son. Popverse has visited Mr. Beef's twice - once to write about what you can expect when you go there, and then to film the whole thing.

Where is The Bear season 3 trailer?

The Bear really isn't a 'three-course meal' type of establishment, but that doesn't mean the third season is half-baked. Here is the main trailer for The Bear season 3:

Will Claire return in The Bear season 3?

It hasn't been announced of Claire, the new paramour of main character Carmy will be returning - although we can hope Molly Gordon will see fit to return for season 3.

Where can I watch/stream The Bear season 3?

As with season 1 and 2, The Bear season 3 is exclusive to the Hulu streaming service.

Will there be a The Bear season 4?

The Bear

Like ordering your dinner and your food for the next day, Hulu ordered The Bear season 4 at the same time they greenlit The Bear season 3, with hopes that the cast & crew could film both seasons back-to-back. Hulu hasn't announced when The Bear season 4 will debut, but just like in a restaurant you don't want to ask the kitchen when it'll be ready.

Stream The Bear seasons 1 and 2 on Hulu now.
