Just mere weeks after The Bear season 1 made its debut on Hulu, FX has renewed the half-hour kitchen dramedy for a second season!

The show is, set in a fictitious sandwich shop "The Original Beef of Chicagoland", didn’t take long to gobbled down by critics. It has a perfect 100 percent Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an 86 score on Metacritic. Well done, Beef.

An FX rep confirmed that The Bear will remain a Hulu exclusive, but could not confirm whether the new season’s release schedule would follow a binge model, weekly model, or some combination of the two. “Too soon on that,” the rep replied to IndieWire’s inquiry.

The Bear follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White), a young star chef from the world of fine dining, who comes home to Chicago to run his family’s Italian beef joint. The FX logline reads: “A world away from what he’s used to, Carmy must balance the soul-crushing realities of small business ownership, his strong-willed and recalcitrant kitchen staff, and his strained familial relationships, all while grappling with the impact of his brother’s suicide.”
