The Bear cast and crew are getting ready to cook up some magic in Season 3, and it won’t take too long to get a taste of the show’s next chapter. According to FX boss John Landgraf, the award-winning dramedy is returning this June and they’re planning to release it as a binge drop.

Despite the strike-related delays that pushed the release dates of several hit shows, The Bear didn’t suffer the same fate. Jeremy Allen White, Ayo Edibiri, Ebo Moss-Bachrach, and the rest of the gang will be back on our screens this June, when all the episodes of the Emmy-winning series will hit the shelves at the same time.

FX boss John Landgraf admitted they’ve debated releasing The Bear episodes weekly, but decided against it. They eventually chose to stick to the binge-drop model because it didn’t make sense to change things up for the audience.

“It wasn’t lost on me or anyone else who worked on the show that it’s a little anxiety-inducing to watch that show… So we made a decision that we would drop the whole thing because, for those of you who saw it, it has a really beautiful, very uplifting ending,” said Landgraf during an executive session at TCA.
