In March, FX shared a teaser for the upcoming season. While the 30-second teaser trailer didn’t reveal much information about Season 2, it did reveal that The Beef is getting closed and being transformed into The Bear.
‘The Bear’ season 2: Plot details
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.
