‘The Bear’ Will Film Seasons 3 and 4 Back to Back


FX’s The Bear is not turning down the heat anytime soon. Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that the Emmy-winning dark comedy has quietly been renewed for a fourth season. While FX declined comment on the pickup, sources note that seasons three and four will film back to back in a bid to keep the show on its annual release target as the cast and creatives continue to line their calendars with feature work as a result of the show’s widespread success.

Season three of The Bear was announced in November with the series, starring Emmy winners Jeremy Allen WhiteAyo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach, slated to return this year. Season four will likely air in 2025.

Since The Bear broke out in season one, stars White and Edebiri have become among the most in-demand talent on the feature side. The same is true for creator Christopher Storer, who has a deal with The Bear producers FX Productions and has lined up several film and TV projects.

Season one of The Bear earned 10 Emmys, with the already aired second season having been impacted by the shifting awards calendar that came as a result of last year’s dual Hollywood strikes.

Local outlets in Chicago, where The Bear films, first reported the quiet renewal and production plans.
