Production on The Bob’s Burgers Movie has been relatively quiet since mid-2021, but we finally have some plot details that shed light on what the Belcher family and their humble restaurant will get up to.
In the “musical-comedy-mystery-adventure” film, a ruptured water main opens up a giant sinkhole in front of the titular restaurant, blocking the entrance and ruining summer plans for the Belchers, according to 20th Century Fox’s official synopsis. Bob and wife Tina Belcher will be busy keeping the business afloat while the kids work on solving a mystery that could save the family business.
“As the dangers mount, these underdogs help each other find hope and fight to get back behind the counter, where they belong,” the synopsis reads.
