Ahead of its anticipated return next month, The Bear season 2 has debuted a new trailer to give a taste of what's to come at The Original Beef of Chicagoland.

Now known as the titular The Bear, the rebranded Italian eatery undergoes a huge makeover to become a fine dining restaurant in the clip, as Carmy (Jeremy Allen White) and Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) interview for new staff.

The team have six months to open, and with the pressure on Carmy also bumps into a face from the past in the form of Winning Time's Molly Gordon.

The series focuses on chef Carmy as he returns to run his family's sandwich shop in Chicago following the suicide of his older brother.

Speaking earlier this year, showrunner Christopher Storer opened up about what fans can expect from season 2.

"It almost feels like season 1 was sort of, 'Let's catch up', and season 2 is sort of like where the show properly begins, once we've met everyone and seen their backstory," he said. "So it's been cool to just expand the world and just learn more about [the characters]."

The show boss continued: "Season 2, really, it's about balance in a lot of ways, between time and what it means to start fresh and how you can start in a healthy direction.

"For somebody like Richie [the de-facto restaurant manager played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach], I think finding where he fits in is what he's looking for in season 2."

The Bear is available now on FX Networks and Hulu in the US and Disney+ in the UK. Season 2 premieres on June 22 on FX Networks in the US and July 19 on Disney+ in the UK.
