AFC Richmond are warming up the sidelines, with morale high, as they prepare to take to the pitch one last time in the third and final season of the global phenomenon that is “Ted Lasso.”
Following the record-breaking Emmy Award wins for its first and second seasons, Apple TV+ today debuted a teaser trailer for Season 3 and confirmed that the first episode of the season will premiere worldwide on Wednesday 15 March, followed by new episodes every Wednesday. The move to a Wednesday marks the first Apple TV+ series to premiere mid-week.
The third season of “Ted Lasso” will take place over a total of 12 episodes whcih will find the newly promoted AFC Richmond facing ridicule as media predictions widely peg them as last in the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the “Wonder Kid”, 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) steps in as assistant coach alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt). Meanwhile, as Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with the pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues at home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) turns all her efforts towards defeating Rupert, and Keeley (Juno Temple) tackles being the boss of her own PR agency. But, despite everything seemingly falling apart both on and off the pitch, Team Lasso still believe they’ve got what it takes and determined to give it their best shot, as you’ll see in the teaser trailer below.
After its global debut on Apple TV+, “Ted Lasso” quickly earned praise and acclaim with season one becoming the most Emmy-nominated freshman comedy series in history, landing top honors and awards. In addition to its Emmy accolades, “Ted Lasso” has been recognized with an esteemed Peabody Award; a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series Award for Sudeikis; three Critics Choice Awards including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham, sweeping all categories in which the series was nominated; and in addition, the Writers Guild of America crowned “Ted Lasso” with honors for both Best Comedy and Best New Series.
In addition to starring, Sudeikis serves as executive producer, alongside Bill Lawrence via his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content. Brendan Hunt, Joe Kelly, and Bill Wrubel also serve as executive producers, along with Doozer’s Jeff Ingold and Liza Katzer. Jane Becker and Jamie Lee also serve as executive producers. Star Brett Goldstein serves as writer and co-executive producer.
