HBO’s "The Bear" star, Jeremy Allen White, has suggested that the third season of the show is in the works and hinted that his character, Carmy, will make the same mistakes over and over again. During the premiere at the El Capitan Theatre, White discussed Carmy’s character creation and some of the issues in the series.

"He never seems to be able to apologize very well," White said to Deadline. "You see Carmy make some similar mistakes this year. When he leaves that walk-in, he feels like he let everybody down. He’s filled with a lot of guilty, a lot of shame." White further explained how Carmy’s conduct in Season 3 should reflect his activities following the “Review” episode from Season 1.

"He embarrassed himself with how he treated everybody," White remembered. "Instead of facing it and trying to treat it and apologize, I think he buries himself back in his work and he pushes himself and everybody else around him thinking that, that is what they want or what they might need."

Emotional Season Ahead

Co-star of White Ayo Edebiri also expressed her feelings about the new season of the show.

Edebiri said she cried after reading Episode 6’s script, which she wrote and directed. This emotional depth could very well mean that the show will gain another level of passion and appeal. The Bear Season 3 is going to be released on June 27 on Hulu, and all the episodes are going to be out at once.

When asked about this release strategy, FX head John Landgraf described the show and its audience in detail. "We all watched the first season and it wasn’t lost on me or anyone else who worked on the show that it’s a little anxiety-inducing to watch that show and anxiety-inducing are not the adjectives typically associated with hit television shows and Emmy awards.

So we made a decision that we would drop the whole thing because, for those of you who saw it, it has a really beautiful, very uplifting ending." The series still has a stellar group of actors such as Ebon Moss-Bachrach as Richard "Richie" Jerimovich, Abby Elliott, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, Matty Matheson, and others; Oliver Platt and Molly Gordon are also recurring characters.
