The third season of "Ted Lasso" is on its way, and, no, we still don't know for sure if it'll be the last one. But series creator and star Jason Sudeikis pretty much confirmed that it is in a new interview. "I mean, there's always Cameo, right?" he joked about how the titular soccer coach could return in a March 6 interview with Deadline. He continued, "This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we were hoping to tell, that we loved to tell."
He continued, "The fact that folks will want more and are curious beyond more than what they don't even know yet — that being Season 3 — it's flattering. Maybe by May 31, once all 12 episodes of the season [have been released], they're like, 'Man, you know what, we get it, we're fine. We don't need anymore, we got it.' But until that time comes, I will appreciate the curiosity beyond what we've come up with so far." He added that he did see that they've "set the table for all sorts of folks" to have a spinoff series of their own, but didn't confirm any plans for one and added, "It's really kind of folks to even consider that." His comments echo those of his other cast members on the topic, but still, it's not quite an official announcement that this is the final season.
Apple TV+ released the full trailer for the fictional soccer — er, football — series on Feb. 27, and in it, the AFC Richmond gang are struggling to find their happy endings. Soundtracked with The Rolling Stones's "You Can't Always Get What You Want," the trailer shows shots of Ted and the Richmond gang as they fight for glory on and off the pitch. Watch the trailer ahead.
Apple TV+ released the first glimpse at the upcoming installment back on Jan. 18. In the first-look photo, Nathan Shelley (Nick Mohammed) faces off with Ted while another villainous character, Rupert Mannion (Anthony Head), looks on. On Feb. 14, the streamer released the teaser for the new season. In it, many characters create their own versions of Ted's iconic "Believe" sign while the song "I Still Believe" by Frank Turner plays over them. Richmond are back and ready to fight.
"Ted Lasso" was created by Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt (who also plays Coach Beard), and Joe Kelly. Lawrence, who created "Scrubs," serves as its showrunner. The first season cleaned up at the 2021 Emmys, where it was nominated for 13 awards. Sudeikis won for his performance as Ted, Hannah Waddingham for her work as AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton, and Brett Goldstein for his work as veteran soccer player Roy Kent. Sudeikis and Goldstein repeated their acting wins in 2022.
