'The Bear' Season 4 Can't Come Soon Enough

Keep the burners on, chefs. After The Bear’s season 3 finale hit audiences with a “To Be Continued” cliffhanger, viewers shouldn’t have to wait long before Carmy (Jeremy Allen White) and co. are back for another course. Deadline reports that the cast filmed seasons 3 and 4 back to back—meaning that The Bear season 4 could return as early as next year.

That’s (potentially) very exciting news! At the end of season 3, it’s left unclear just what The Chicago Tribune wrote about Carmy and The Bear. Carmy also has yet to resolve his issues or mend his relationship with Claire (Molly Gordon). Plus, Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) is about to tell Carmy that she’s leaving his dysfunctional kitchen to start her own restaurant with Ever’s Adam Shapiro. Until we see an official release date from FX, here’s everything we know so far.

What Will Happen in The Bear Season 4?

Hopefully, peace for poor ol’ Carmy. Our troubled chef is traumatized from his past experiences in the culinary world and has yet to fully process his grief over losing his older brother. In the season 2 finale, he accidentally locked himself in a fridge and almost sabotaged his restaurant’s big opening night. While season 3 showed inklings of Carmy beginning to sort everything out, season 4 will likely test him even more before his life gets better.

The same goes for Sydney, Richie (Ebon Moss-Bacharach), Marcus (Lionel Boyce), and the rest of The Bear staff. Most of the time, the kitchen is in chaos. Sydney seeks to leave and start her own culinary course, but how will everyone else choose to deal with the stress? If they earned a bad review, Uncle Jimmy (Oliver Platt) might close down the restaurant.

When Will The Bear Season 4 Premiere?

The Bear premieres a new season every June. Season 1 debuted in June 2022, season 2 dropped in June 2023, and season 3 just aired on Hulu in June 2024. If seasons 3 and 4 filmed consecutively, it's a good sign that everything is moving according to plan. Still, I can’t promise that The Bear season 4 drops in June 2025 until FX officially makes the announcement. For now, I’m still waiting on that wagyu, chef.
