The critically acclaimed series received 13 Emmy nominations for its first season.
The series focuses on Jeremy's character Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto, a chef who inherits her family's sandwich shop.
Carmy, an award-winning chef, inherited the Chicago Italian beef sandwich shop after his brother's tragic death.
He previously worked as a chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant, but returns to Chicago to take over the shop and its baggage, including debt – as he also struggles with his own trauma.
The series was created by Christopher Storer, who also serves as an executive producer along with Joanna Calo, Josh Senior, Hiro Murai, Nate Matteson and Matty Matheson.
“The Bear, which wowed audiences in its first season only to achieve even greater success in its second season, has become a cultural phenomenon,” Nick Grad, president of FX Entertainment, said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
