Cartoon Network premiered one of the most adorably and bizarrely hilarious series on TV in 2015 with We Bare Bears. The three bear brothers and their shenanigans among the humans in San Francisco have been fun from their very first Bear Stack. Luckily for fans, the adventures of Grizzly, Panda, and Ice Bear won't be coming to an end any time soon. Cartoon Network has officially renewed We Bare Bears for a third season.
Season 2 of We Bare Bears is actually still airing on Cartoon Network, with new episodes hitting the airwaves every Thursday night at 7 p.m. ET. 44 episodes have aired so far, but the hairy siblings haven't yet figured out how to blend into human society without any super awkward and endearing mishaps. We can bet that they won't get much better at it in what's left of Season 2.
There is no confirmed episode count for Season 3, but THR reports that it will include holiday specials. Eric Edelstein, SNL funnyman Bobby Moynihan, and Demetri Martin will be back to voice the central bears, and plenty of the most enjoyable recurring characters will all return for Season 3 as well. Nom Nom, Chloe, Charlie, Lucy, and Ranger Tabes will encounter the bears for more exploits. We can expect Season 3 to debut at some point in 2017. Season 2 kicked off shortly after the finale of Season 1, so If we're lucky, Season 3 will premiere shortly after the finale of Season 2 and ensure that we're not stuck without We Bare Bears for longer than we can bear it.
We Bare Bears is based on Daniel Chong's webcomic all about Grizzly, Panda, and Ice Bear. The series has expanded beyond the webcomic, and it shows no sign of stopping. Considering that entire episodes can be crafted out something as simple as one of the bears sneezing, we probably don't have to worry that the We Bare Bears creative team will run out of material any time soon. Honestly, I'd watch another few episodes just about the brothers trying to go on cleanses.
It's not a huge surprise that We Bare Bears landed the early Season 3 renewal. Viewership for the series is pretty impressive. Over the first two seasons to date, the show has achieved an average global reach of 29.5 million youngsters. Of those 29.5 million kids, 8.4 million have been in the United States. Throw in the fact that critics have given mostly positive reviews for the series so far, and We Bare Bears may become one of Cartoon Network's most successful projects in recent years.
Tune in to Cartoon Network on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. ET to catch what's left of We Bare Bears in Season 2, and don't forget to check out our fall TV schedule to see what else you can watch in the near future.
