HOLLYWOOD — Hit TV series The Bear has officially been renewed for season 3. With both the WGA strike and SAG-AFTRA strike coming to an end, those involved have finally been able to answer audience questions about the future of the series. Conversations have mostly centered on whether you need to catch up on the Marvel movies and Disney Plus shows to follow the new season.
“Why am I even clarifying this?” stated executive producer and series creator, Christopher Storer. “This is our third season. We’re a show about a sandwich shop in Chicago. Why would someone think they need to know everything about some norse god fucking around with time and space to understand the struggles of opening a restaurant?”
Questions sparked following a recent press release from Marvel Studios announcing all Disney-owned network and streaming shows will be joining the MCU. This includes Disney Channel, ABC, National Geographic, ESPN, FX, and Hulu originals.
“We’re thrilled to announce Jeremey Allen White will be joining the MCU,” said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, in a press release. “He’ll be portraying the beloved new hero, ‘The Bear’—a Chicagoan heartthrob with the power to become physically ill when feeling anxious.”
“I didn’t really care either way about being part of Marvel, but now they got me I guess” mumbled Jeremy Allen White, star of The Bear, while avoiding eye contact. “A story about me has been circulating. A while back, I met with Marvel and I guess I had a bit of an attitude because they told me to fuck off. But then the other day I woke up to an email from Kevin that just said ‘Fuck you, you’re mine.’”
At press time, leaked images surfaced on Twitter of presumably an upcoming season 3 Christmas episode. The screenshots include Jeremy Allen White alongside John Mulaney, Bob Odenkirk, and Rocket Racoon.
