Fans of the acclaimed dramedy The Bear were head over heels when FX announced its Season 3 renewal, and there’s more where that came from! According to Deadline’s recent report, this series quietly secured a Season 4 renewal, and its next two seasons are reportedly filming back-to-back.

Speculation about the potential ending of The Bear began swirling after local Chicago outlets dropped hints about Christopher Storer’s agreement to film additional episodes. Deadline decided to dig deeper, and they claim that the acclaimed FX series is nowhere near reaching its end.

The official announcement for Season 4 renewal hasn’t been released by FX, but Deadline claims it’s just a formality. Filming is already underway in Chicago, a move strategically designed to accommodate the busy schedules of the show’s Emmy-winning trio Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edebiri, and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.

There’s also chatter about Season 4 potentially serving as the final chapter of The Bear, drawing parallels to FX’s treatment of Atlanta, which concluded after shooting Seasons 3 and 4 back-to-back. Deadline claims there’s no truth to these rumors, and the door remains open for a potential fifth season.

The third season of The Bear will return to FX this June. Its official release date remains a mystery, but we know that all episodes will be released at once, sticking to the binge-drop model of the first two seasons.
