Ted Lasso Season 3: Every little thing We Know So Far

The news of feel-good comedy Ted Lasso’s season 3 renewal didn’t come as a surprise to most fans, considering the sweeping success the Apple TV+ show has enjoyed each on the awards circuit and amongst audiences. It became the most-nominated freshman comedy in Emmy Award history with a whopping 20 nods (then won in seven categories), and its second-season debut broke records for Apple. It’s no wonder AFC Richmond is headed back to the pitch.

Starring and co-created by Jason Sudeikis, Ted Lasso follows the titular American football coach as he’s tapped to administer a British football (as in, soccer) club. While the ridiculous move is first intended as a scheme by the team’s owner to get back at her cheating husband, Ted someway charms his way through the entire institution. Season 2 dives further into the lives of Lasso, his colleagues, and his team, and the way they deal with mental health. After an emotional season 2 finale, here’s what to learn about Lasso’s next chapter.

When does Ted Lasso season 3 come out?

There’s no release date yet, but Apple is planning for a premiere in 2022, in response to Variety. The author’s room reportedly began on September 13, 2021, and production was scheduled to start out in January 2022.

Ted Lasso was renewed for a 3rd season back in October 2020, long before the second season even premiered. Just months prior, in August, it debuted on the streamer and have become Apple’s number-one comedy across all top 50 countries, Deadline reported.

In a red carpet interview on Sept. 11, Sam Richardson (who plays Edwin Akufo), said “they’re still filming some more” when asked about season 3, so it seems production is not done yet.

Hold on—will this be the last season?

We hope not, but Sudeikis did have plans for a three-season arc. “The story that’s being told—that three-season arc—is one which I see, know, and understood,” he told Entertainment Weekly in June 2021. “I’m glad that they’re willing to pay for those three seasons. So far as what happens after that, who knows? I don’t know.”

Co-creator, author, and star Brendan Hunt chimed in, saying, “I feel we’ve at all times meant it to be three seasons. I feel it might be pretty cool if, within the face of how much everyone likes this show, that we keep on with our guns and really just do three seasons.” But he did note that nobody on the show expected it to turn out to be as big of successful because it did. That said, he still defers to Sudeikis in terms of taking Ted Lasso beyond season 3. “I’ll say that, whatever he decides, I’ll happily abide.”

On an analogous note, executive producer Bill Lawrence is “hopeful there’s more Ted Lasso stories to inform after three seasons.”

Apple also recently struck up a £500,000 licensing take care of the Premier League that enables for the show to make use of “archive footage, the Premier League’s logos, club kits and even the league trophy,” The Athletic reports. It’s unclear, though, whether that partnership will only last for one season or more.

An update finally arrived in June 2022, when actor and co-writer Brett Goldstein (who plays beloved retired footballer Roy Kent) revealed season 3 is being written because the show’s last. “We’re writing it like that,” he told Sunday Times. “It was planned as three. Spoiler alert—everyone dies.”

When asked about this on the 2022 Emmys, Goldstein said the show’s fate is in “Jason’s hands.” Fresh off an Emmy win, he added,“In theory, we have been writing this prefer it’s the tip. But it surely may not be…who knows? I’ll probably get killed if I say anything.”

Who’s within the forged?

While Apple hasn’t officially confirmed who shall be back for season 3, insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that Hannah Waddingham (Rebecca), Brett Goldstein (Roy), Juno Temple (Keeley), and Hunt (Coach Beard) are negotiating salaries for season 3. And, after all, Sudeikis would pick up the whistle once more.

What number of episodes will there be?

Season 3 may have 12 episodes, identical to the second season did. (That is a bit longer than season 1, which only had 10.) While backstage on the Emmys, Sudeikis noted that the streamer asked for the additional episodes prematurely this time around. “They, being Apple, asked for 12 episodes—and this time, ahead of time,” he said. “So, we’ll be doing 12 episodes as of now.”
