The Bear's New Season 3 Trailer Embraces The Non-Negotiables Of Fine Dining

The first two seasons of FX's "The Bear" have taken viewers on quite the journey, following the story of award-winning chef Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White) who returns home to Chicago to take over the family restaurant, The Beef, and attempt to breathe new life into it. 

Berzatto and his sous chef Sydney Adamu (Ayo Edebiri) initially attempted to successfully sling the trademark beef sandwiches before pivoting to an elevated concept called The Bear and experimenting with the chaos of fine dining and chasing after Michelin stars by the end of Season 2. 

The popular show was renewed for Season 3, coming summer 2024. And in the newest trailer, James Beard Award-winning chef Berzatto (who previously helmed Michelin-starred kitchens) introduces his staff to what he calls the "non-negotiables" of fine dining.

In true Carmy fashion, he has jotted down the terms nearly illegibly on what appears to be the back of a restaurant ticket that's found by his sister Natalie "Sugar" Berzatto (Abby Elliott) in the kitchen of the restaurant. From focus, confidence, and the pursuit of excellence to paying attention to details and vibrant collaboration, the list encompasses what Carmy says in the trailer is "how restaurants at the highest level operate."

What else happens in The Bear's new trailer?

As a follow-up to Carmy's introduction of the list, the new trailer shows reactions from Sydney as well as chef Richard "Richie" Jermovich (Ebon Moss-Bacharach) that tease the type of push-back viewers might expect to see in Season 3. Despite that, the trailer also indicates that Sydney and Carmen will be contractually partnering, a move that's intended to allow the two to "push each other" to do their best work.

The remainder of the trailer shows the conflict and chaos that has become a hallmark of The Bear's kitchen, with Richie describing Carmy's list as "the scribblings of a mad man" and Sydney questioning Carmy's motives, which ultimately appear to boil down to achieving a Michelin star. 

Meanwhile, blunders like broken wine glasses, dropped plates, and overfilled water glasses ensue, inevitably leaving viewers to wonder if there's any chance Carmy can pull the team together to meet the high expectations on his non-negotiables list. Tune in on Hulu beginning June 27 to see how it all plays out.
