The Bear recap: Everything you need to know about the FX on Hulu series before season 3

Popverse's Veronica Valencia recaps all the Bear necessities of the hit Hulu food drama ahead of its third season

If you are ready for The Bear Season 3, say, "Yes, Chef!"

The hit FX show on Hulu starring Jeremy Allen White (Shameless, The Iron Claw) and Ayo Edebiri (Inside Out 2, Big Mouth) is returning to our screens June 26 - but before we jump right into the next round of kitchen chaos, join Popverse senior video producer Veronica Valencia as she recaps the events of The Bear season 2.

It was a season that broadened the horizons of the main cast (and the show itself) significantly, deepening their relationships with each other, their careers, and with food - and one that also introduced more backstory about Carmy and his impressively dysfunctional - but, as it turns out, surprisingly star-studded - family thanks to one devastating flashback episode. A lot happened in the season, which means that it's understandable if you'd like a second helping before the new season begins.

Whether you've seen season 2 and need a quick refresher, or are just curious to know where the series is now before the restaurant re-opens for a third seating, Veronica is breaking down all of the show's big and important moments you'll need to know to prepare you for opening night!

You can watch the full video above.

The Bear season 3 premieres on Hulu June 26, 2024.
