Returning Wednesday for Season 3 on Hulu, “The Bear” follows Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (White), a chef in the world of fine dining, who returns to Chicago to run her brother Mikey’s (Jon Bernthal) sandwich shop after the Mikey’s death. suicide.

The journey is not easy, as the motley crew resists Carmy’s management style.

Beginning in season 3 of the series, which became an awards darling, starring Sydney (Edebiri), Carmy took on the team – including her “cousin” Richie’ Jerimovich (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) and pastry chef Marcus ( Lionel Boyce) – and gave the place a gastronomic makeover.

Sydney and Carmy are friends and colleagues, but many fans have speculated that a romance could be on the horizon. However, while White said there was “no question” of that, Edebiri had a more specific answer: “No.”

White added that Carmy is “not the best communicator” but sometimes makes a “grand gesture” to reach out to Syd or the rest of the staff, even if they aren’t “ready to receive.” His gesture.

“He has a lot on his mind all the time, and people aren’t always aware of exactly what’s going on. You’ll see how it affects Carmen and Syd’s relationship, but I think Carmen is trying to accommodate him,” White said.

Regarding the direction Season 3 will take, since Carmy was stuck in a walk-in refrigerator in the Season 2 finale, White said, “I’m walking out of the walk-in refrigerator. And that’s good, and I think Carmy is doing what he does – which is he’s diving back into his work and really trying to question himself. In doing so, he really challenges everyone around him and also becomes very difficult to be around. Lots of challenges!

White also said he didn’t share Carmy’s perfectionist quality.

“I’m so the opposite. This is something I really admire about Carmy, and it’s something I look for in my life, but it’s not a quality Carmy and I share, I often struggle.

After winning Emmys and Golden Globes for his role — and reaching new levels of fame — he admitted that when he returned to the show, “I think the pressure is real.”

The former “Shameless” star added that before filming season 2 and especially season 3, after the success of awards season, he was “very anxious.”

He continued: “I knew the storylines were so strong and we had great opportunities, as we always do. But the pressure is very real. After a few weeks back (the rest of the cast) and our great team, everything is back in place and it’s fun again, and everything seems possible again.

The hit series was already renewed for a season 4 before season 3, and it was rumored that the two seasons would have followed one another.
