A young chef from the fine dining world returns to Chicago to run his family's sandwich shop.
Hey there, fellow movie enthusiasts! I'm back with some exciting news for all you foodies out there. The breakout FX network show, The Bear, is finally returning for its highly anticipated second season. As a blogger who missed out on the first season, I'm certainly paying attention now!
The show revolves around the fast-paced and stressful restaurant business, something that I could never handle myself but am always in awe of those who can. The collection of personalities on this show is fantastic, with the talented cast led by Jeremy Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, and Ayo Edebiri, with cameos from Oliver Platt and Molly Ringwald, and Jon Bernthal in season 1.
At its core, The Bear is a family drama that explores the struggles of a young chef returning to his hometown to run his family's sandwich shop. The intense debt to the pseudo mob makes the family drama even more intense, and the well-written undercurrents of the show dealing with the addictions so many of the characters have adds another layer of complexity to the story.
One of the reasons I'm excited about this show is the great indie soundtrack. The music adds a unique and engaging atmosphere that perfectly complements the drama and tension of the show. The episodes are also short, which makes it easy to binge and catch up before the new season airs.
All in all, The Bear is a show that deserves your attention, and I can't wait to see where the second season takes us. If you're looking for a new drama series to get invested in, look no further than The Bear.
