The first season of the show focused on Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto, an award-winning New York City chef de cuisine who decides to take over his family’s Italian beef sandwich eatery after his elder brother’s tragic suicide. As the season progresses, Carmy faces challenges of inherited debts, a dilapidated kitchen, and a disobedient staff. For The Bear’s upcoming second season, showrunner Christopher Storer revealed that “there will be less looking back and more looking forward for the shop”.

He explains, “It almost feels like season one was sort of, ‘Let’s catch up’, and season two is sort of like where the show properly begins, once we’ve met everyone and seen their backstory.” So, we can expect the storyline to focus on the new restaurant and the way the crew deals with everyday issues.

Who is in the cast of The Bear’s upcoming season?

Jeremy Allen White will return as Carmen Berzatto. Other cast includes Ayo Edebiri, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, Edwin Lee Gibson, Corey Hendrix, Matty Matheson, Richard Esteras and Jose M. Cervantes.
