Developers have been tight-lipped about the plot, but in August, Ted Lasso editors AJ Catoline and Melissa McCoy teased that fans can expect bigger character arcs for Rebecca and Nate.
Catoline told The Hollywood Reporter, "[Nate is] on a trajectory, career wise… From season one as kitman, then he became a coach and now he's the coach of West Ham. Jason is so very generous as a producer and creator. He gives all of the characters a storyline. I think that's why [the episodes] are so full… There so many storylines; he wants every character to have an arc."
Also, when co-creator and executive producer Brendan Hunt was asked what fans can expect, he said, "What shows usually do in season three: We all adopt a child. A bunch of adopted children running around. It really becomes more of an Oliver! thing—Oliver exclamation point. No—the team is dealing with the reality of going back to the Premier League, where we’re minnows again. We’re minus our brightest tactical mind, and we know the way the Premier League structure works, we have to play West Ham twice, so Nate and Rupert [Anthony Head] are out there looming. We might see a bit of what’s going on at West Ham as well."
