The Beef is dead; long live the Berf – I mean – the Bear. The Bear’s second season will have its grand opening this summer and this time around, it will feature a new recurring character played by Shiva Baby’s Molly Gordon as well as Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk, who is reserved for a guest role, though details on his character remain similarly undisclosed. So what do we know? In the trailer, Gordon’s character has Jeffrey Allen White’s Carmy shaking in his apron and it’s not just because they’re in the freezer aisle. When last we left our heroic chefs, they’d just come into a ton of tomato-soaked money and were beginning to blue-sky a new restaurant. Now, the kids are getting ready to remodel, hiring staff, and managing not to kill each other in the process. “I’m trying to start from a place of positivity,” Berzatto grumbles. Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) even has a sledgehammer, presumably to do the funnest part of any renovation (demo) but possibly also to bash Carmy’s face in. Find out which she gets to first when The Bear comes roaring back June 22 on Hulu.
