The highly-anticipated trip back to England’s Premier League takes place season three this Wednesday night (March 15) with everyone’s favorite corny football coach, Ted Lasso.
Per the season two finale, everyone knows of Ted’s (Jason Sudeikis) panic attacks. He was seen leaving a game, in progress, on the Soccer Special show. However, Ted has the club’s full support after the news of his panic attack hits. He focuses on the season’s final match, which would determine Richmond’s promotion into the Premier League.
Keeley (Juno Temple) learns Bantr’s VC wants to finance her own PR firm. She broke the news to her best friend, who mentored her to get to this point, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham). While the two celebrate Keeley’s bittersweet end to her employment, they discover Rupert (Anthony Head) has bought West Ham United. Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) worries they will drift apart as she takes on this new adventure, leaving him behind.
During the final match that determines Richmond’s relegation, Nate (Nick Mohammed) tries to abandon his false 9 play. But the players want to stick through with it, believing in his coaching. This leads to tension between Ted and Nate. He feels that Ted once paid so much attention to him until he was promoted to coach. No matter what Nate did, he didn’t feel his efforts we recognized, so he leaves the team.
Ted runs into Trent Crimm, from The Independent, who was fired as a reporter after revealing his anonymous source (Nate) when running Ted’s panic attack story. Fast forward to two months later, and we see the smug Rupert greeting the newest member of his West Ham coaching staff: Nate.
Per the official description of the new season, “the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces ridicule as media predictions widely peg them to finish last in the Premier League and Nate, now hailed as the ‘wonder kid,’ has gone to work for Rupert at West Ham United. In the wake of Nate’s contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard. Meanwhile, Ted deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert, and Keeley navigates being the boss of her own PR agency. Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway.”
Ted Lasso returns to AppleTV+ at midnight. The subsequent episodes will drop weekly thereafter with a total of 12 episodes for the season. As we previously reported, this third season will most likely be the final for the beloved comedy series. However, there have been reports of spin-offs after the third season.
