Ted Lasso co-creator Bill Lawrence and actor Jason Sudeikis finally confirmed that the Emmy-winning Apple TV+ series of Ted Lasso Season 3 will contain the exact episode count as season 2. Apple TV’s hit series became an enlightening phenomenon after it debuted in 2020. Soon the series garnered several Emmy nominations for its freshman series. And recently, the series left an impressive mark on the 73rd Primetime Emmy Award show.
In which, Jason Sudeikis brought the Outstanding Lead Actor in Comedy award to his home. Meanwhile, Brett Goldstein and Hannah Waddingham won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, respectively. Above all, the series received the Outstanding Comedy Series award for its remarkable storytelling.
Ted Lasso Season 3: Who Could Be In The Cast?
Ted Lasso is yet to confirm the official cast of the third run. But it’s safe to say that most of your favorite cast members will return. Although Emmy winners Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, Brett Goldstein as Roy Kent, and Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Welton will definitely return. Further, Nick Mohammed (Nathan “Nate” Shelley), Juno Temple (Keeley Jones), Jeremy Swift (Leslie Higgins), and Brendan Hunt (Coach Beard) could also return.
Well, we can’t imagine the show without other players. Therefore, Toheeb Jimoh as Sam and Phil Dunster as Jamie Tartt will notably return. Further, some minor characters like The Independent reporter Trent Crimm (James Lance) would also return. Additionally, we also learned that the cast had received significant pay raises before the second run. Sudeikis has received his pay jump to $1 million per episode. Meanwhile, Temple, Waddingham, Goldstein, and Hunt have also received pretty well hike in their salary.
Ted Lasso Season 3: What Will Happen Next?
It’s hard to envision how things will move in the next run when season 2 has time to wrap. However, the second run has recently teased two of the vast running subplots. In one subplot, Roy and Nate both take the notable assistant coaching positions. Meanwhile, the other hints at the positive portrayal of the media. So we can expect that either Roy and Nate or at least one will join the rival team. That might bring plenty of turmoil in the team.
Ted Lasso Season 3: Release Date
Well, deeming that first two seasons’ release dates, it’s safe to say that Ted Lasso Season 3 will return next summer on Apple TV+. The first season debuted with a triple-episode airing back-to-back in August 2020. On the other hand, the second season returned with a bit of change. As it dropped one episode per week that started airing in July 2021. However, it remains uncertain whether or not season 3 would continue with the weekly episodes release pattern.
Soon after his Emmys win, Sudeikis confirmed that Apple had ordered 12 episodes of the next run, and for the first time ahead of time. So once again, Ted Lasso Season 3 will have 12 episodes same as its prior season. Further, the actor and co-creator ensured that the show will be doing 12 episodes from now onwards. Even his response sounds like they have already mapped the next season ahead of the second-run finale. Well, anything could happen.
Is It The Final Run?
Last year, co-creator Bill Lawrence said that Sudeikis has always envisioned the show as a three-season story on a Scrubs podcast. So everybody on the team knows that the third season is the end of this story. Meanwhile, Sudeikis told Entertainment Weekly that he only knows one story that they’re telling with the help of the ensemble cast and people behind their camera. However, he believed that they could tell this story within the three-season arc. Meanwhile, Brendan Hunt also cited that Ted Lasso always meant to be three seasons only. So there’s no way for the fourth run.
