Carmy and the crew might've opened their dream fine-diner, but they're still surrounded by chaos in the hit show's latest sneak peek at its third season.

What happens when a sandwich diner levels up in a big way, becoming a fine-diner that's angling for a spot among Chicago's very best restaurants? Fans of The Bear will soon find out. The show's third season is about to be served, arriving at the end of June — and in the latest trailer, culinary chaos remains on the menu.

"This is a dysfunctional kitchen," says Sydney (Ayo Edebiri, Bottoms) in the new sneak peek. "Show me a functional one," pipes back Carmy (Jeremy Allen White, The Iron Claw) and Richie (Ebon Moss-Bachrach, No Hard Feelings) in unison. The rest of the trailer is teeming with the hustle and bustle of the trio, and their colleagues, friends and family, working through the reality of having made their hospitality dreams come true.

As the first glimpse at season three also showed, The Bear's namesake restaurant is now open, after Carmy, Sydney, Richie and the team transformed their beef-slinging eatery (where season one's action took place) into an upscale restaurant (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, plus the stresses that both it and being in the restaurant trade in general bring.

How that pans out will be revealed on Thursday, June 27 both in the US and Down Under. 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 Carmy took over the diner after his brother's (Jon Bernthal, Origin) 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.
