It’s the hope that kills you, but have no fear—the third season of Ted Lasso is finally on the horizon!
The two-time Emmy winner for Outstanding Comedy Series returns to Apple TV+ this spring, and things have never been more tenuous for Ted (Jason Sudeikis) and AFC Richmond.
At the end of season two, team kit man-turned-assistant coach Nate (Nick Mohammed) jumped ship for rival West Ham United, which is now owned by Rupert Mannion (Anthony Head), the former owner of AFC Richmond who lost the club to ex-wife Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham) in their divorce.
In a first look photo released by the streamer Jan. 18, Ted and Nate are seen staring each other down—Ted with his trademark grin, Nate with an ominous scowl—inside an elevator at the West Ham offices.
When it comes to the third season of Ted Lasso, however, the biggest question remains: Is this the end?
Sudeikis and the Ted Lasso creative team, including Brett Goldstein, have long maintained that season three would be the show’s swan song. However, when Apple TV+ announced details about the third season earlier this month, the word “final” was nowhere in sight.
Source link The hit show Ted Lasso is finally coming back for its third season. After two successful seasons, the show has a loyal fanbase that can’t wait to see what is in store for the lovable titular character, and what the show’s creator, Bill Lawrence, has in mind for the next installment. Here’s everything we know so far about Season 3 of Ted Lasso.
The cast will be returning in full force. Jason Sudeikis will reprise his role as the titular Ted Lasso, and other veterans such as Hannah Waddingham (Rebecca Welton), Phil Dunster (Jamie Tartt), Brett Goldstein (Roy Kent), Juno Temple (Keeley Jones), and Nick Mohammed (Nathan Shelley) will all be returning as well.
The show’s writers have already begun writing the third season. Co-creator Bill Lawrence has said he plans to use the same writers from the previous season, as well as to bring in new writers with fresh ideas. This season will not only focus on the team’s interactions in the first team, but it will also tackle more universal issues, such as grief, pain, and overcoming adversity.
Season 3 will be introducing several new characters. While the show is yet to announce the specifics, Nathan Lane (“The Odd Couple”) and Hannah Waddingham (“Game of Thrones”) are reportedly in talks to join the cast for the new season. There will also be other recurring roles that have yet to be revealed.
We don’t know when the show will be released yet, but we expect it to air sometime in 2022. Lawrence has said he is looking forward to making the show “bigger and better” than ever, and that the third season will be the “most ambitious series” they have ever done.
If there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that Ted Lasso sure knows how to get us excited for the next season. With the returning cast, new characters, and exciting storylines, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for Ted and his team this time around.
