Ted Lasso, the most unlikely of hits for Apple TV+, is also the feel-good comedy the comedy has needed over some pretty tough years. But after two seasons, both critically acclaimed although less so for the second, are there more tears and laughter to be wrung from the earnest football coach?
The new trailer for Ted Lasso season 3 shows that things are picking up right where they left off. Ted has just gone through a rough few months that tore at the happy exterior he shows to others. The newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces the weight of expectations from fans and the media. And then there’s Nate, who has stabbed Ted in the back for a chance to coach his own team. Nate’s looking pretty villainous, too.
The show’s overall lighthearted vibe tells us that Nate will get his redemption moment eventually, but it doesn’t have to be anytime soon, does it?
Jason Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, Nick Mohammed, Juno Temple, Hannah Waddingham, and Brendan Hunt are all back for Ted Lasso season 3, which hits Apple TV+ on March 15th.
In the third season of Ted Lasso, the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces ridicule as media predictions widely peg them to finish last in the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the “wonder kid,” has gone to work for Rupert (Anthony Head) at West Ham United. In the wake of Nate’s contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt). Meanwhile, while Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates being the boss of her own PR agency. Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway.
