After two seasons of The Bear, Jeremy Allen White is returning with his much-loved cast for a third season of the heartwarming show about the struggles, chaos – and the unexpected wins – of a run-down sandwich shop in Chicago.

Joining White is Ayo Edebiri as Sydney Adamu and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Richie Jerimovich, and together, they pick up where they left off in season two after opening a new restaurant.

Last season, we got a cameo from Jamie Lee Curtis, but have a few unanswered questions, including where Carmy and Claire’s relationship stands, whether The Bear will be profitable, and if Carmy will need to pay back Uncle Jimmy’s massive loan?

“It’s a losing battle every single day in the restaurant business,” reads the official synopsis.

“Carmy pushes himself harder than ever, and demands excellence from his crew, who do their best to match his intensity.”

Named an American Film Institute Television Program of the Year for two years running, The Bear has won Emmys, Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild Awards and Critics Choice Awards, among many other trophies.

All 10 episodes will drop on Disney+ on June 27.
