Fans got their first look at Season 3 of FX’s The Bear on Wednesday, April 3, when a 53-second clip from Disney’s shareholders meeting, held earlier that day, appeared on social media. The video has already been removed. There is no set release date for the next season, but the episodes should be available on Hulu sometime in June. An FX representative, however, claims the video wasn’t authorized for wide sharing and has asked that it be taken down.

FX is criticizing the media for releasing footage from the forthcoming 3rd season of the acclaimed Disney dramedy The Bear, which features chef Carmy under pressure during a rough opening night at his restaurant and was supposedly filmed during a Disney shareholders meeting presentation.

FX said in a statement, 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.”

The statement further reads, “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.”

In February, The Bear started filming its much-awaited third season. It is scheduled to premiere on FX and Hulu in June. The show has been renewed for a fourth season, which is scheduled to shoot jointly with the third and earned ten Emmys for the first season, including Best Comedy Series.
