After three successful seasons, numerous Emmys, and a whole lot of laughs, Ted Lasso is hanging up its cleats – at least for the time being. Last week the show ended its three-year run with its titular character saying goodbye to AFC Richmond and England and returning to Kanas to be with his son.
The last episode was controversial among fans, who criticized star and showrunner, Jason Sudeikis for his restrained and “emotionless” performance. This comes on the heels of a disjointed season, marred by production and writing interruptions.
I sat down with friend of PDC, Karen Peterson, who spoke about what’s missing from its current criticism, what’s next for the show, and why we love the show.
