While The Bear season 1 ended on a rare note of optimism, the few plot details that have been teased about the forthcoming season 2 indicate that audiences are in for another tumultuous and tonally intricate installment. The Bear season 1 finale concludes with Carmen discovering that his late brother Mikey (Jon Bernthal) left behind a significant amount of money hidden in cans of tomato sauce throughout the restaurant. This finding allows Carmen to make sweeping changes to the restaurant in the hopes of finally turning it into a thriving business, including replacing its former name, The Original Beef with The Bear.

As the teaser trailer for The Bear season 2 connotes, the seeming fresh start for Carmen and the restaurant gives way for plenty of new storylines to intercept with where the character’s left off. Carmen will likely have to reconcile the future he aims for with his traumatic past and continued anxiety regarding his work, first instilled in him by a verbally abusive mentor, played by Joel McHale, during his time in the world of haute cuisine. The excitement surrounding the opening of The Bear is also set to be complicated by his family’s ongoing grief which often manifests in the form of intense arguments with one another and their co-workers in the restaurant.

Carmen’s relationship with the restaurant’s staff, particularly Sydney, is also expected to be expanded upon as he continues to learn the importance of a chosen family in the face of personal struggles. The cast is also set to expand, featuring Better Call Saul‘s Bob Odenkirk in an undisclosed guest role. One element that is sure to remain strong throughout season 2 is the unflinchingly authentic portrayal of the strenuous conditions and personal sacrifices necessitated by working in restaurant industry that The Bear has been celebrated for.
