What is season 3 about?

Season 3 will pick up shortly after season 2 as Carmy has finally gotten The Bear up and running. However, opening a restaurant is one thing, keeping it in business is another. Between the chaotic cooking, maintaining a business, winning reviews and just making enough money to keep the lights on, it’s a tough battle.

Not helping is the personality clashes of Carmy and his crew, including chef Sydney, manager Richie and Carmy’s relationship with Natalie. Season 3 looks to get back to basics focusing on the restaurant, the crazy kitchen. and more as Carmy tries to keep his dream of his new restaurant alive. We shared the synopsis and trailer below:

"Season three of FX’s “The Bear” follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) and Richard “Richie” Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as they do what it takes to elevate The Bear, their beef stand turned fine dining establishment, to the highest level, all while doing their best just to stay in business. It’s a losing battle every single day in the restaurant business. Carmy pushes himself harder than ever, and demands excellence from his crew, who do their best to match his intensity. Their quest for culinary excellence will propel the crew to new levels and stress the bonds that hold the restaurant together. As the team grows in size, each member will strive to reach a greater level of service within their role. In the restaurant industry, you’re never on solid ground, and with that ever-changing landscape comes new challenges and opportunities. Our chefs have learned that every second counts, but this season we’ll find out if they have what it takes to make it to tomorrow."
