Apple TV+ has announced Season 3 of the Emmy-winning comedy ‘Ted Lasso’ will premiere this spring. The streaming service also released a first image from the upcoming season. The first photo from Season 3 of the show hints at still unresolved tensions between Ted (Sudeikis) and Nate (Nick Mohammed), who left AFC Richmond at the end of season two and ended up at West Ham United, the Premier League team owned by Rupert Mannion (Anthony Head). It shows Nate and Ted meeting in the West Ham facilities, with Rupert looming in the background.
What remains in question is whether Season 3 will be the last for the popular series. Creators Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly have said they sold the series ‘for a three-season arc.’ “ After season 2 ended, Lawrence said: “This story is going to be over [in season three], regardless, even if the show finds another story to tell and goes on.” Hunt, who plays Coach Beard on the series, added: “We are writing an ending for this three-chunk portion that we’ve always seen, but it’s not like Thanos is in it and half of us die. Most of us, anyway, will probably still be alive, so I don’t think leaving an out is anything to worry about. It’s just a matter of whether or not we pick this up in some other way, and when.”
