Who knew that making beef sandwiches could be such compelling television? Last year during the Oscars, FX dropped a teaser confirming The Bear season two’s arrival this summer. The show was a breakout hit, catapulting the careers of stars Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edibiri.
Created by Christopher Storer and led by a great ensemble of White, Edibiri, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, and Abby Elliott, the show centers on an elite chef who leaves the world of fine dining to take over his family’s Chicago sandwich shop after his brother’s death. But turning the long-established, family shop into a success proves difficult due to mounting debts, family disputes, and a dysfunctional crew.
The Bear returns for its second season this June.
