Disney has announced that FX’s The Bear, the award-winning drama series, will premiere its second season on July 19th exclusively on Disney+. All 10 episodes will be available at launch.
Season 2 follows Carmen Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) and Richie Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) as they work to transform their rundown sandwich joint into a next-level spot. As they strip the restaurant down to its bones, the crew undertakes transformational journeys of their own, each forced to confront the past and reckon with who they want to be in the future.
In addition to White, Edebiri and Moss-Bachrach, the half-hour series also stars Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas and Matty Matheson, with Edwin Lee Gibson, Oliver Platt and newcomer Molly Gordon in recurring roles.
The series won numerous awards in its first season, including being honoured as an AFI TV Programme of the Year, as well as a WGA Award, PGA Award, Film Independent Spirit Award, American Cinema Editors Award and ACE Eddie Award. Allen White also won the comedy acting award from the Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Critics Choice Awards. The first season is also nominated in the international category at the BAFTA Television Awards taking place on May 14th.
The Bear was created by Christopher Storer who acts as executive producer alongside Joanna Calo, Hiro Murai, of Super Frog, Josh Senior and Matty Matheson, with Tyson Bidner serving as producer. The series is produced by FX Productions.
