Will There Be ‘The Bear’ Season 3? What Can We Expect Next?

Season Two of The Bear ended with a bang! As expected, the makers gave us an extension that is as exquisite as the plate they served for one of their guests in the final episode. There is so far no official announcement made by the network regarding The Bear being picked up for season three. We as ardent fans of the show through this article speculate scenarios we can expect to see in the show if it returns next year.  The last episode of the show is filled with anxiety, panic, and, most of all, remaining calm during the advent of the incoming storm, which is no Carmy, and all they must do is rely on one another to make sure the restaurant runs like clockwork. The customers cannot know about the chaos happening on the other side of the door. All of this and more have been conveyed with utmost grace thanks to some seamless writing, direction, and cinematography. If there is chaos in the kitchen, there is silence in Carmy’s head. With that come the demons in his head now that he is away from the space that never allowed his thoughts to take over him.

Carmy realized he was not good for himself or anybody around him, and that led to his mind spiraling and self-destructing. This happened because he never dealt with his emotions the right way, and now that he is in a precarious situation, he will have to find answers. He ends up not only pushing Claire away from his life but also angering Richie as well. Season three will have the two of them trying not to get in the way of each other for some time.

This was bound to happen because there has never been a time when Richie and Carmy have not been at loggerheads. But knowing the nature of the relationship, they would make up in no time after moping around for a couple of weeks. Richie cannot be fired because he helped build this restaurant too, and the rest of the team would not allow that to happen. Carmy and Richie probably see a bit of Mikey in each other, which makes them want to be around each other despite many arguments and setbacks. Richie begged him not to ruin whatever he was having with Claire, just like any older brother would do, but Carmy did the exact opposite. So, the third season will have Carmy finally dealing with his emotions the right way and channeling them in a manner that does not destroy his life around him. It is obvious from what we have seen in The Bear that a lot of Carmy’s nature stems from his mother being anxiety-ridden, which made him think this is the only normal. Hopefully, Carmy, in the third season, will seek help in the form of counseling.

One of his breakthroughs will help him get back with Claire because she is probably one of the good things that happened to him outside of his life in the restaurant. Claire also felt a connection with him, and it seemed like they were meant to be, until he imploded about his insecurities. We hope to get to see a different Carmy who pursues her and requests that she be in his life. But there is also a chance in the third season that Claire and Carmy will not work out and that their relationship will be like unrequited, unfinished love.

The third season of The Bear will also see Richie take a step forward towards becoming a better professional. It looks like his conversation with Chef Terry might work in his favor. There is nothing that could stop him from making The Bear one of the finest restaurants in the city. There is a possibility of Richie finally getting a better offer than he has with Carmy, most likely from Chef Terry from 11 Madison Avenue, who would want Richie to be part of her staff. Maybe her conversation struck a chord and made her choose him over the countless options she must have had. This would be the change he was looking for, and Carmy would be happy for him.

Sydney will have a tough time with the restaurant. Running the restaurant would not be as easy as she thought. The Bear Season 3 will probably be about a block she is facing creatively, and she will have a tough time just running the place as a chef and part owner. There is a chance she might take a break from work and go on a culinary vacation just to get the hang of the diversification she can bring to her plate. Just like Marcus’s self-discovery trip, this time, it would be Sydney. She will finally find a way to bring balance into her life and not let herself be overwhelmed like Carmy is. Marcus and Sydney in the next season might hit it off as a couple because it’s been a while since they have been vibing with each other. It is high time the writers gave this couple a chance to fall in love. They are two independent individuals who work in the same profession; there is nothing that will not work for them, but again, all of it is far-fetched and just a speculation.

Natalie and Donna would finally start hanging out with each other in the third season. Donna was probably introduced and showcased in this series to talk about her impact on the kids. In the next season, we might see more of Jamie Lee Curtis as the mother than in a small cameo. The mother and daughter will finally find a middle ground and settle on not arguing at all. This would be because of Nat’s newborn baby. Nat’s husband, Pete, could also be the reason for their reconciliation because he would want the two of them to have love for each other. Donna and Carmy would also try to make things slightly better than they were, but in the third season as well, there might not be any understanding between the two, as Carmy might have a hard time trusting his mother, while Donna will have difficulty not being herself. She is of a type, and it is bad for Carmy to expect his mother to change. Maybe that’s why he would maintain the distance. He and Natalie might end up losing her in the next season.

We could entertain the possibility of The Bear finally coming to an end with season three, as Carmy would probably give up the entire ownership to Sydney to run the show. In the end, it would be Carmy who would go on a journey to find himself, either on his own or with Claire. He will most likely get the hang of letting things go a bit. This would be a big change for Carmy, but he would be willing to take the risk just as he did with The Bear. Christopher Storer here has created something so magnificent that it would be hard to get out of the world-building he has done. Why do we have to wait another year for this show to be released?
