The upcoming third season of the hit comedy-drama series The Bear will premiere this June.
According to Deadline, the date was revealed by FX chairman John Landgraf during a presentation at the Television Critics Association’s winter 2023 press tour.
During his presentation, Landgraf admitted that The Bear was ‘a little anxiety inducing to watch’ and that particularly tense storylines were not ‘typically associated with hit television shows and Emmy awards.’
He then added that, prior to the release of the program’s second season, ‘We made a decision that we would drop the whole thing because for those of you who saw it, it has a really beautiful, very uplifting ending.’

The entertainment industry figure went on to state that, although the idea of releasing The Bear’s new episodes on a week-to-week basis was brought up, it was ultimately shot down.
‘When we came back for Season 2, we debated, since we knew now that we had a hit, can we milk it a little bit?…We then thought that’s a rotten thing to do, to change it up for the audience,’ he recalled.
Landgraf added: ‘The way that Chris makes it, even though the episodes are separate, there’s a whole vibe to every season so we decided not to change what we had already set in motion.’
FX’s chairman concluded by stating that The Bear’s future seasons would also be released all at once.
‘I have no doubt that we’ll keep doing it because we did it in the past. Even if we could, I don’t think we’d change it now,’ he said.
The Bear was created by Christopher Storer and debuted on the Hulu streaming service in June of 2022.

The cast of the program is led by Jeremy Allen White, and it includes performers such as Ayo Edebiri, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Lionel Boyce.
