If like us, you’ve been obsessed by The Bear, this list is for you. The show follows a fine dining chef, Carmy, who after a tragic death in the family heads home to Chicago to help run the family business – a sandwich shop. Still reeling from the impacts of his family member’s death, Carmy is tasked with balancing running a small business and dealing with the shop’s unique kitchen staff.

If you are part of that “some” and have already lapped it all up, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few shows worth watching if you like The Bear.
