Order up: The Bear's third season is about to be served. And if you're wondering what's in store when the Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning series returns this winter, a just-dropped first teaser trailer is here to whet your appetite. The main focus of the debut sneak peek: Carmy (Jeremy Allen White, The Iron Claw) in the kitchen.

The Bear's namesake restaurant is now open in season three, after Carmy, Sydney (Ayo Edebiri, Bottoms), Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach, No Hard Feelings) and the crew transformed their beef-slinging eatery (where season one's action took place) into a fine-diner (with that process fuelling season two). But staying operational is still a struggle, with the new batch of episodes set to chart Carmy's quest for culinary perfection, the reality of levelling up the business, and the stresses that both it and being in the restaurant trade in general bring.

Also new: a release date for The Bear's third season. In America and Down under, the show will arrive on Thursday, June 27. In the past, there's always been a wait for Aussie and NZ viewers — season one hit in June in America, then in August in Australia; with season two, US viewers still had a June date, while Aussies and New Zealanders had to wait till July — but thankfully that isn't the case this time.

Comfort food and winter do go hand in hand, after all — and since 2022, so have chaotic culinary dramedies and the frostiest time of the year Down Under. It was two years back that The Bear debuted to become one of the best new shows on television. In 2023, it then became one of the best returning shows on TV that year.

The Bear was renewed for season three in November 2023 to the surprise of no one, but to the joyous shouts of "yes chef!" from everyone. Also, even though that third season hasn't yet dropped, it looks as if the show has been renewed for its fourth season already as well.

If you've missed The Bear so far, its first season jumped into the mayhem when White's Carmy took over the diner after his brother's (Jon Bernthal, We Own This City) death. Before returning home, the chef's resume featured Noma and The French Laundry, as well as awards and acclaim. Then, in season two, Carmy worked towards turning the space into an upscale addition to his hometown's dining scene, with help from the restaurant's trusty team — including a roster of talent also spans Abby Elliott (Indebted) as Carmy's sister Natalie, aka Sugar, plus Lionel Boyce (Hap and Leonard), Liza Colón-Zayas (In Treatment), Edwin Lee Gibson (Fargo) and IRL chef Matty Matheson among the other staff.
