Ted Lasso season 3: Everything we know so far

When Apple announced it was turning an eight-year-old commercial about an American football coach taking over a Premier League club into a series, not many people were expecting it to be a success.

However, Ted Lasso won over viewers with his unflinching positivity, Roy Kent might be one of the funniest characters on TV and the show scooped up multiple Emmy Awards in 2021, including Outstanding Comedy Series, so it’s safe to say it’s done pretty well.

With the second season complete, we can’t wait to see what Lasso and the Diamond Dogs (minus Nate) get up to since AFC Richmond’s promotion back up to the Premier League in the third season. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Ted Lasso season three, including how to watch it, when it is expected to be released, who is in it and what is expected to happen.

Ted Lasso season 3 release date

The second season of Ted Lasso premiered on Apple TV+ on Friday 23 July 2021. The season two finale was then made available on 8 October 2021, with a week-by-week release of the episodes.

With regards to the third season, it was confirmed as happening in October 2020 so we know we at least have it to look forward to.

There is no official release date as yet. It was previously suggested by The Hollywood Reporter that season 3 was due to premiere in summer 2022, though that seems a little soon now and more recent reports suggest it will be closer towards the end of 2022. Apple announced production had started on 7 March 2022, though there is still no official premiere date as yet.

The series co-creator Brendan Hunt who plays Coach Beard told TV Line: “We are definitely starting later this year than in Season 2, that’s for sure,” Hunt says. “So I would be surprised if our delivery dates were the same. That’s above my pay grade, I don’t know for sure, but I do have a vague understanding of the limits of this dimension we call time, and I would say it seems pretty unlikely that we would [premiere] as early this year.”

Cristo Fernández who plays Dani Rojas told Popculture: “We’ve been shooting for the last two months, things are going well, and I’m hopeful. Hopefully, the fans will love our Season 3, which, hopefully, will be at the end of the year as well, out.”

How to watch Ted Lasso season 3

When Ted Lasso season 3 does debut, you’ll need an Apple TV+ subscription to watch it. The Apple TV app is available on a number of platforms, including iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, as well as Android, some Smart TVs and some streaming sticks. 

You can read more about Apple TV+ in our separate feature. In a nutshell though, it’s £4.99/$4.99 a month, or it comes included as part of some of the Apple One subscription packages.

What is the best streaming device for your TV? Our top recommendation is the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. Also excellent are the Google Chromecast with Google TV, the Roku Express 4K, the Apple TV 4K and the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

How many episodes will Ted Lasso season 3 have?

Ted Lasso season two has 12 episodes, which was two more than the first season, which had 10.

Season three is also expected to have 12 episodes after co-creator Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso) said Apple had asked for 12 episodes ahead of time.

Ted Lasso season 3 rumours and news

Based on the conclusion of the second season, which saw Lasso’s team, AFC Richmond, promoted back up to the Premier League, we assume adjusting to life back at the higher level will be a big part of the upcoming season.

With Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh) thankfully choosing to stay at AFC Richmond at the end of the second season, and Nate (Nick Mohammed) moving to coach West Ham, which is now owned by Rebecca’s (Hannah Waddingham) ex-husband, we suspect there will be some interesting stories in season three.

There’s also Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) and Keeley’s (Juno Temple) relationship to consider, with Keeley presumably busy running her own PR firm in season 3. Will she still have time for hilarious Roy?

Ted Lasso season 3 cast

Apple hasn’t confirmed which characters will return for season 3 as yet. Co-creator and executive producer Bill Lawrence confirmed that Sarah Niles (Dr. Sharon Fieldstone) and James Lance (Trent Crimm) would factor heavily in the new series, even though the season 2 finale suggested they wouldn’t.

We’d also expect to see the main characters back including: 

  • Hannah Waddingham – Rebecca
  • Brett Goldstein – Roy
  • Juno Temple – Keeley
  • Brendan Hunt – Coach Beard
  • Nick Mohammed – Nate
  • Jeremy Swift – Leslie
  • Phil Dunster – Jamie
  • Toheeb Jimoh – Sam
  • Cristo Fernandez-  Dani

Of course, Jason Sudeikis (Ted) will also return. It is said he has negotiated a deal that will see him earn around $1 million per episode for season three.

How to catch up on previous seasons of Ted Lasso

Given season three of Ted Lasso isn’t expected until sometime later in 2022, there’s plenty of time to catch up or rewatch season one and two. And why not? It’s excellent.

Both season one and two are available to stream through Apple TV+, which you’ll need a subscription for. It’s £4.99/$4.99 a month, or it comes included as part of the Apple One subscription package.

Is there a Ted Lasso season 3 trailer?

There is no Ted Lasso season 3 trailer as yet, which is unsurprising as it’s a little early still, especially if it isn’t coming out till the end of 2022.

Apple released the first trailer for season two during its Spring Loaded event in April 2021, but there was no talk of Ted Lasso during Apple’s March 2022 event so we are still waiting for now. We’ll be sure to drop any trailer in here as soon as it appears, but we suspect we have a few more months to wait for now.

Will there be a Ted Lasso season 4?

A season 4 of Ted Lasso isn’t confirmed, though it’s not off the table either. There was orignally a plan for just three seasons, but that was before the show did so well. Fingers crossed it continues.
