In just a few weeks we will have the expected return of AFC Richmond from Ted Lasso.
Apple TV+ has set the date premiere of the third season of the beloved series for Wednesday, March 15, 2023changing to Wednesdays as the day that new weekly episodes will be debuting.
- It is the first Apple Original series to debut episodes on Wednesdays.
- The Season 3 will consist of 12 episodes.. The season finale will air on May 31.
The announcement of the premiere of the new season is accompanied by a teaser, which emphasizes Ted’s favorite word (Jason Sudeikis) “BELIEVE” to the tune of the song “I Still Believe” by Frank Turner. You can find the progress at the end of the note.
The two-time Emmy Award-winning sitcom stars Sudeikis as an American coach who moves to England to coach a Premier League soccer team struggling to avoid relegation to the second division.
OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS SEASON 3:
“Newly promoted AFC Richmond face ridicule as media predictions put them bottom of the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the ‘wunderkind’, has gone to work for Rupert (Anthony Head) at West Ham United. In the wake of Nate’s controversial departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) becomes an assistant coach alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt). Meanwhile, while Ted deals with the pressures at work, he continues to deal with his own personal problems at home; Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) concentrates on defeating Rupert; and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates being the head of her own public relations agency. Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is ready to do their best anyway.
The streamer has not confirmed whether or not this will be the final season. In October 2021, co-creator and showrunner Bill Lawrence told THR:
“This story will end [en la tercera temporada]regardless, even if the show finds another story to tell and continues.”
In another interview with Deadline (via ScreenRant), Channing Dungey, CEO of Warner Bros. Television Group adds:
“What initially had been the vision that Jason and Bill had [Lawrence] when they went into the first season, it was very much a three-act structure. So I think it becomes one of those things that as you get going, and if you fall in love with that world and those characters, it’s hard to say goodbye. The season finale ends beautifully. If that’s all we do in the Ted Lasso universe, I think the fans will be very happy and excited. But there is also a way to open a door. If we are lucky enough to do more, we can move on“.
The acclaimed series has won multiple Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Actor (Sudeikis), Supporting Actor (Goldstein), Supporting Actress (Waddingham), Outstanding Directing; the SAG Award for Best Cast in a Comedy Series and Actor in a Comedy Series (Sudeikis), among many others.
Ted Lasso is based on a character that Sudeikis portrayed in a series of NB Sports Premier League promos. Sudeikis developed the series with Joe Kelly and Lawrence; Goldstein is one of the series writers and co-producer; Sudeikis is one of the executive producers.
