Haha. Very funny, Goldstein. However, his remarks might not be far off. Ted Lasso co-creator and star Jason Sudeikis sat down with Entertainment Weekly last year and revealed he saw the show ending after three seasons as well. (Though he hinted at the show continuing if others were onboard.)
“The story that I know is the one that I wanted to tell, and so that’s the one we’re telling with the help of numerous people in front of and behind the camera, so it’s by no means me typing every keystroke and saying every word,” he said. “It’s nowhere near like that. But the story that’s being told—that three-season arc—is one that I see, know, and understood. I’m glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don’t know.”
Ted Lasso was created by Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt, and Joe Kelly. Based on the same character Sudeikis originally played in the ads for NBC Sports, the series follows Lasso, an American college football coach who heads to London to manage AFC Richmond, a struggling British soccer team.
The first season of the series received wide critical acclaim, becoming the most nominated freshman comedy in Emmy history. During the 73rd annual Emmy Awards, the Apple TV+ soccer comedy took home the award for Outstanding Comedy Series. Ted Lasso won a total of seven Emmy awards in 2021.
Unfortunately, a release date for season three has not been announced yet. Until we receive further updates, you can watch the first two seasons of Ted Lasso, streaming now on Apple TV+.
