FX Condemns Use of ‘The Bear’ Season 3 Clip Leaked From Shareholder Meeting

FX never intended to unleash The Bear.

The network is condemning media use of a clip from the acclaimed dramedy’s upcoming third season.

The scene featured star Jeremy Allen White’s perfectionist chef Carmy characteristically under pressure during a rocky opening night of his revamped restaurant.

The clip was apparently illicitly captured during a Disney shareholders meeting presentation, posted on X (formerly Twitter), and then broadly picked up by the entertainment press.

“Today during The Walt Disney Company’s Annual Shareholder Meeting, a clip from the upcoming third season of FX’s The Bear was shown as part of the presentation,” FX said in a statement. “The clip was subsequently captured and shared publicly without permission. This clip is not authorized for use beyond the shareholder meeting and we request that you and/or your outlet do not post or share it in any manner. If it has already been posted, we request that it be removed immediately.” (For the record, THR didn’t post this clip, so we’re not, like, in trouble or something.)

The Bear began shooting its highly anticipated third season in February, and the series is expected to return to FX and Hulu in June. The show won 10 Emmys for its debut season, including best comedy series, and has been picked up for a fourth season, which is expected to film back-to-back with the third.

The Bear stars Emmy winners WhiteAyo Edebiri and Ebon Moss-Bachrach as restaurant workers in an intense Chicago eatery. The first two seasons are streaming on Hulu.
