You’ve already seen the utterly delightful half-hour sitcom, Ted Lasso, if you’re an Apple TV+ subscriber, and are pleased to know that Season 2 is on its way (although a premiere date has yet to be announced).
Well, get ready for more: Co-creator Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town) figured out that another season could be played by the deceptively folksy mentor.
The creators have hinted at the third season!
And here’s is all that you need to know!
A fan who asked on Twitter if the show would return for Season 2, the writer and executive producer said “Yep and in third.”Hey, not everyone’s up on the news! While Apple hasn’t confirmed Season 3, it’s certainly a promising sign that the show will continue to go on.
Production of the show
In October 2019, Apple TV+ commissioned the series, with Jason Sudeikis taking his place as Lasso. In 2013, Sudeikis originally premiered the titular character as part of NBC Sports commercials advocating their Premier League coverage, in which Lasso is portrayed as Tottenham Hotspur F.C’s new head coach. In 2017, producer Bill Lawrence was brought in to work on a television series based around the character. Apple TV+ has revived the series for a 10-episode second season on August 19, 2020.
What is the show about?
Rebecca is newly widowed and wants to avenge her husband’s infidelity. After a messy divorce, she’s announced as the new owner of the AFC Richmond team. She uses this opportunity to thank her ex-husband’s favorite football team and hires an alien coach, Ted Lasso. Ted’s an American football coach and doesn’t have enough knowledge about the game.
