After almost two years, the feel-good comedy show Ted Lasso is returning to the TV screen. The Apple TV+ series, starring Jason Sudeikis, captured the hearts of audiences around the world after its premiere in 2020, offering joy amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Now in its third season, the show has received critical acclaim and broken many award records, receiving 20 Emmy nominations in both 2021 and 2022 and winning the award for “Best Outstanding Comedy Series” two years in a row. 

To celebrate the premiere of season three on March 15th, I’ve gathered everything we know about the season to prepare you for its release!

What can we expect from season 3?

Season three is expected to pick up right where season two left off, where fans were left with a major cliffhanger. 

In an interview with People, Nick Mohammed (who plays Nate Shelley) said for fans to continue to “Expect the unexpected with Ted Lasso because there are lots of things being turned on the head again”.

Here is the official description posted by Apple TV+. “In the wake of Nate’s contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt). Meanwhile, while Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert, and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates being the boss of her own PR agency. Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway.”

When Will the season premiere?

The first episode of season three will premiere on March 15, 2023. After the premiere, episodes will be released weekly on Wednesdays.

How many episodes are in this season?

There are 12 episodes in season three. The last episode of the season will premiere on May 31, 2023.

Who is in the cast?

The show stars Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Welton, Brett Goldstein as Roy Kent, Juno Temple as Keeley Jones, Brendan Hunt as Coach Beard, Nick Mohammed as Nate Shelley and Phil Dunster as Jamie Tartt.

While all of the members of the original seasons are expected to return, there are rumored to be some new faces in the cast for season three. As first reported by Above The Line, actress Becky Ann Baker was cast as Ted Lasso’s mother for this season, garnering excitement among fans.

Where did this season film?

Season three began filming in London in March 2022. The cast was also spotted filming during the summer in Amsterdam. In November 2022, filming of season three ended, and production began.

Will this be the last season of Ted Lasso?

While there has been a large amount of speculation by fans, season three is expected to be the final season of Ted Lasso. In multiple interviews, Jason Sudeikis, the creator of the show, conveyed that the writers were writing Ted Lasso as a three-part story.

This has also been confirmed by Brett Goldstein, an actor and writer for the show.

“We are writing it like that,” Goldstein told the Sunday Times when asked if season three would be the final season of Ted Lasso. “It was planned as three [seasons].”

There are hopes, however, that fans could see more Ted Lasso content after the third season concludes.

“Even if Ted Lasso goes on, the story the writing staff has been telling had a beginning, middle, and end for the first three seasons,” executive producer Bill Lawrence said in an interview with Deadline, “and then it might veer off from that.”
