If you’ve been on social media recently, you’ve likely seen people talking about FX’s buzzy new show The Bear, and soon enough, it’ll be landing in Australia.

The Bear follows chef Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto. After the death of his brother, Carmy is forced to say goodbye to the world of Michelin star fine dining and return to his family’s sandwich shop, The Original Beef of Chicagoland.

After debuting to critical acclaim in the US back in June, the limited series is set to drop on Disney+ at the end of this month.

With a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes, The Bear has won fans far and wide, and if you’ve ever worked in a kitchen before, you’ll likely be able to relate.

The Bear is horrifically stressful; it’s also thrilling, ambitious, funny, devastating…” wrote Sophie Gilbert in The Atlantic. “As anxious as The Bear might make you feel, it’s a gorgeous show, riddled with moments of short, sharp beauty.”

“I could barely get through The Bear,” one former Michelin star chef wrote. “Not because I thought it was bad television — but because it was the most accurate portrayal of life in a restaurant kitchen I’ve seen in a while.”

With just eight, 30-minute episodes in its first season, you’ll likely blow through this one quickly, but don’t fear: FX recently announced that a second season is in the works.

The Bear has exceeded our wildest creative, critical and commercial expectations,” said FX Entertainment President Eric Schrier. “We can’t wait to get to work on season two.”

Here’s everything you need to know about The Bear, the show everyone you know is about to be talking about.
