Apple TV+ will air the second season of Ted Lasso. The show will build on its success in the first season and earn 20 Emmy nominations. Unfortunately, it will not be the last. Ted Lasso’s stars, Brendan Hunt and Jason Sudeikis, were on TODAY Thursday to promote the series. They also asked why Season 3 would be it’s last.
Sudeikis, who plays the title role, said that “That’s the way we thought it back before Bill [Lawrence] got involved.” Brendan, Joe [Kelly], and I just sat down and created the three-act structure. We didn’t invent it.” Sudeikis stated that the show would end after three seasons. Hunt shared his thoughts and said that they didn’t anticipate the show to last for three seasons.
Hunt stated, “We assumed that we would be tied off after two,” Hunt added. Hunt said, “So that screws up all the plan.” If the show is successful, Ted Lasso may continue to host after three seasons. But what Lawrence said about the show back in December indicates that a fourth season is not likely.
“I think ours is a bit different because Jason, as they’re kind of mapping out, it’s three-season show,” Lawrence said on the Fake Doctors and Real Friends podcast hosted by Zach Braff, Donald Faison. “So…superfans understand that [ Mandalorian connects tissue in Star Wars universe. And for us, everyone knows that there will be an end to this story in season three.”
Lawrence did however reveal how the show could be renewed for a fourth season. ” Ted Lasso has a three-season series. After the third season, Mr. Sudeikis stopped to rephrase his words. “The only way that I believe a fourth season Ted Lasso is possible would be if TL went to coach a soccer team that played just a block away from Jason’s home in real life. You know what I mean?” He’s got, young kids.”
Ted Lasso Season 1 can be viewed on Apple TV+. Season 2 will start tomorrow, Friday, July 23, 2013.
