What is The Bear about?

The Bear follows James Beard Award-winning chef Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto after he leaves the world of fine dining to return home and look after his family’s sandwich shop (The Beef), after his brother’s tragic suicide. Used to the high pressure and even higher standards of white-table restaurants, Carmy soon has to learn to deal with a whole new set of issues.

These include the realities of running a failing small business, trying to force his bored, anti-authority staff to listen to him, and having to once again become entangled in family drama. In addition to this, he is trying to deal with the grief of his brother’s death and the circumstances surrounding it and keep a lid on his alcoholism.

As he gets to know his staff and reintegrates himself into his local community, he soon realizes what he left behind, and vows to bring his family’s business back into the big time.

With high ratings, interesting storylines, and a cliffhanger of a season 1 ending with Carmy closing The Beef so that he could reopen the spot as The Bear, it’s no surprise that season 2 was highly anticipated. The new season began with Carmy attempting to get his new restaurant off the ground and included even more fascinating stories.

Unlike season one of The Bear, which had eight episodes, season two has ten episodes. This is an indication of the bigger stories season 2 has to tell. All of the episodes were released on Hulu on June 22 in the States and were released in the Star section of Disney Plus internationally on July 19.

  2. “Pasta”: The crew splits up to work towards their new vision.
  3. “Sundae”: Sydney searches Chicago for culinary inspiration.
  4. “Honeydew”: Marcus challenges himself.
  5. “Pop”: The renovation gets off track.
  6. “Fishes”: Flashback to an intense and heated Christmas dinner in the Berzatto family.
  7. “Forks”: Richie stages.
  8. “Bolognese”: The crew awaits a do-or-die fire suppression test.

  10. “The Bear”: Friends and Family night at The Bear.

How long is each episode of The Bear season 2?

Like season one of The Bear, almost all of the episodes of season two are around thirty minutes long. The shortest episode in the season is episode three, “Sundae,” which runs at 26 minutes. The longest episode is number six, “Fishes,” which clocks in at an hour and five minutes.

Given that “Fishes” gives us a lot of familial background, it’s unsurprising that the creators and producers of The Bear chose to give the fans an extended episode.
