A Look at the New Menu for Season Two

Here is another reason for fans to get excited for Season Two: SCREEN posted news earlier this Spring that Better Call Saul star and Illinois native Bob Odenkirk has joined the cast of The Bear for Season Two.

And if that wasn’t enough good news, the new season has added more show to the menu for its enthusiastic fans. The Bear Season Two will be ten episodes long, two more than the first, and will focus on the new restaurant’s opening.
