Ted Lasso, the Apple TV sitcom starring Jason Sudeikis as the charming and well-meaning coach Lasso as he seeks to restore glory to fictional English team AFC Richmond, has been a huge hit with spectators and critics alike.
The series was praised for its lighthearted, uplifting comedy and the way it addresses mental health issues, and it swept the 2021 Emmy Awards.
Here’s all you need to know about Ted Lasso in the next months…
Ted Lasso Season 3: Will there be a third season of Ted Lasso?
Yes, there will be a third season of Ted Lasso.
The third season of Ted Lasso was previously commissioned prior to the creation of season two, with an October 2020 release date.
The conclusion of the second season clearly set the way for a new chapter in the plot, with Nate defecting from AFC Richmond to work as a coach at West Ham, which had recently been purchased by Rebecca Walton’s ex-husband.
Tensions are bound to increase between AFC Richmond and West Ham in the following episode, with Ted having to deal with Nate’s conversion to the dark side and work for “the enemy.”
The season two finale also had a possible cliffhanger, with Keeley and Roy’s romance entering uncertain terrain when Keeley rejected Roy’s invitation to go on a six-week vacation, leaving him to doubt their future together.
Ted Lasso Season 3 Release Date: When will Ted Lasso season 3 be released?
Season three filming officially began on March 7, 2022, with no word on when it would be released.
According to recent reports, filming is still ongoing as of mid-August, implying that any conceivable release is still months away.
Season three, starring Cristo Fernandez as Dani Rojas, is expected to be released before the end of the year, according to actor Cristo Fernandez.
“We’ve been filming for the previous two months, and things are going nicely,” Cristo told popculture.
“Hopefully, the fans will like our season three, which will hopefully be released at the end of the year as well.”
Season three of Ted Lasso potentially be announced soon before or during the Emmys on September 12, with the program receiving several nominations once again.

Cast: Who will star in Ted Lasso season 3?
Ted Lasso’s primary cast is anticipated to return for the third season.
Season 3 cast members confirmed to return include:
- Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso.
- Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Welton.
- Jeremy Swift as Leslie Higgins.
- Brendan Hunt as Coach Beard.
- Toheeb Jimoh as Sam Obisanya.

Jodi Balfour, who plays Jack, a charming venture entrepreneur, was added to the roster in April.
Balfour has previously starred in True Detective and The Crown.
While team therapist Sharon and journalist Trent Crimm are both expected to return in some capacity despite the fact that the finale of season two suggested both may be moving on.
Season 4 Update: Will Ted Lasso have a fourth season?
“The tale that’s being told – that three-season arc – is one that I see, know, and understand,” Sudeikis said to Entertainment Weekly.
“I’m glad they’re willing to pay for all three seasons.” Who knows what will happen after that? “I’m not sure.”
“I would probably keep honest and say that even if Ted Lasso goes on, the story the writing crew has been telling has a beginning, middle, and finish for the first three seasons,” Lawrence adds to Deadline. And then it may deviate from that.”
Brett Goldstein, an actor, and writer, also told E! News that the series had a “three-season storyline” and will finish this season.
While that storyline may be approaching an end, there is still optimism that the show will continue to tell new tales, with actress Juno Temple, who portrays Keeley, recently saying that she was unaware of Ted Lasso’s destiny.
“No one has told me it’s over,” Temple said in July on Variety’s Award Circuit Podcast.
“That was never stated to me. And…no one claimed it wasn’t. “I’m in a state of limbo.”
