We’ve been waiting a long time for Ted Lasso Season 3, but Jason Sudeikis, who plays Ted Lasso, is still working on making sure that Season 3 is perfect. We had hoped that the new season of the Emmy-winning show on Apple TV+ would come out at the same time as the World Cup, but it wasn’t meant to be. In the meantime, Apple TV+ has released an ad campaign for the US Men’s National Soccer Team that is both charming and discreet. It is a series of motivational messages for the players. The statements posted on billboards in different places are encouraging, funny, and delightfully corny words from Coach Lasso himself.
In Season 1, the show was mainly about Ted trying to get used to British culture and a sport he didn’t know anything about. In Season 2, everyone’s character grew. In Season 2, with the help of Dr. Sharon (Sarah Niles), Ted dug deeper into his past traumas, and we got to spend more time with now-retired football player Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) and model-turned-P.R.-executive-turned-P.R. As their relationship grew, Juno Temple became closer to executive Keeley Jones. Coach Beard, played by Brendan Hunt, got more lines and became more than just the coach’s assistant.
And, as a spoiler for Season 2, the most shocking thing happened when Nick Mohammed’s character, “Nate the Great” Shelley, went from being a lovable, sometimes clumsy assistant to a full-fledged enemy who turned to the dark side by taking a coaching job with West Ham, the club owned by Richmond F.C. Rupert Welton, Rebecca Welton’s (Hannah Waddingham) vengeful ex-husband, bought her a new car (Anthony Head). Season 3 will most likely be about this new enemy that the Richmond squad has to face.
Read on to learn everything we know about Season 3 of Ted Lasso.
The latest news about Ted Lasso Season 3
We wish we had more information about when Season 3 will come out, but as of right now, we don’t. There have been rumors going around the internet that the end of Season 3 is near. (Shows often shoot episodes out of order, so this doesn’t necessarily mean all filming is done.) Arlo White, who provides his voice for AFC Richmond as a sports commentator, tweeted on November 9 that he had finished his last day of filming for the show. (This doesn’t mean that the whole series has finished filming.) One comment asks, “What do you know about a release date, Arlo? Give us the scoop!” He replies, “Promise I don’t know that information. I’m waiting for you!”
I believe in believe.

Chip Hamilton, coordinating Ted Lasso, just posted this tribute to the show’s cast and crew. The caption uses a lot of clear past tense language, which makes us think that things are coming to an end. The caption says, “To the people in the picture and the equally important cast and crew members who aren’t: This was and is a dream.” “Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are Richmond Till We Die, and no one can take that away from us. I love you all.”
There had been rumors that Season 3 would be delayed by a lot, but nothing from an official source like Apple TV+ or Warner Bros. People say that since Sudeikis has become the showrunner, he has been asking for rewrites to ensure the scripts are perfect. Puck says that “character arcs were shifted” and “script changes were made on the fly.” There are rumors that a shoot in Amsterdam will move to a different place. The show was supposed to start filming in September 2021 but didn’t begin until March 2022.
Even at the 2022 Emmys, Sudeikis didn’t give much hope that the new season would be coming soon. During his speech, he told the crowd, “We’ll see you for Season 3 at some point.”
What happens in Season 3 of Ted Lasso?
The Hollywood Reporter says that in an interview, Ted Lasso editors A.J. Catoline and Melissa McCoy say that some of the most critical changes for Rebecca and Nate will happen in Season 3.
“[Nate’s] career is going in a certain direction,” Caroline said. “In the first season, he was the Quitman, then he became a coach, and now he’s the coach of West Ham.” “As a producer and creator, Jason is very kind. He gives every character a storyline, which is why I think the episodes are full. There are so many storylines because he wants every character to have an arc.”

When will Season 3 of Ted Lasso come out?
No date has been set yet. The 12-episode Season 3 was supposed to start airing in the fall of 2022, but the above delays caused it to be pushed back. Puck says that Season 3 should come out in the winter or early spring of 2023, but even that wide range of dates is uncertain. Apple TV+ is known for not following other streaming services’ release schedules, so we hope it comes out before May 31. They wouldn’t want to miss Emmy eligibility. (They wouldn’t keep us waiting that long, would they?
Multiple sources say that Season 3 will be the last season of the series, which has won multiple Emmy Awards.
Deadline says that Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, and Bill Lawrence, among the show’s writers and producers, have confirmed that Season 3 will be the last. In an interview with Deadline, Lawrence did not rule out the idea of more Ted Lasso. “Even if Ted Lasso keeps going, the story the writers have been telling for the first three seasons has a beginning, middle, and end,” the co-creator said. “And then it might go in a different direction.” In the end, though, it’s up to Sudeikis, and it seems like he’s leaning more toward three-and-out than keeping the show going after the next season.
Hannah Waddingham talked about the rumors that this was the last season when she was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live in July. She said, “I don’t know why that’s come out so strongly because we don’t know that for sure.” She said, “Even if we left it at this, Jason has pointed out that that’s where we leave (the characters) for now… and that’s how I’m going to have to think about it, or I’ll be.
Ted Lasso Season 3 Cast
For Season 3, most of the cast will be back, led by Jason Sudeikis. Becky Ann Baker (The Resort) has been cast as Ted’s mom, and Jodi Balfour (The Crown) has been added to the cast as Jack, a charming venture capitalist. We can’t wait to see how these new characters fit in. Ted once said, “Boy, I love meeting people’s moms. It’s like reading a manual on how to figure out why they’re crazy.”
