Apple TV recently revealed that Season 3 of the acclaimed, award-winning series, “Ted Lasso,” will finally drop next month. Now, the official trailer has been dropped for the upcoming season, offering a wider look at the story for Season 3.
The newly debuted trailer looks to have more bittersweet moments with the ensemble cast and is available here:
‘Ted Lasso’ Is Back With Official Trailer For Season 3
The new trailer is appropriately set to The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” In the third season, the newly-promoted AFC Richmond has to brave media ridicule, as they are largely predicted to finish last in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Nate (Nick Mohammed) has started a new journey working for Rupert (Anthony Head) at the West Ham United team. You can see more of that tension as Nate begins his new role this season in the trailer.
Also slated for Season 3, Ted (Jason Sudeikis) has to deal with pressures both at work and at home as he struggles with his own personal issues. Team owner Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) wants nothing more than to beat Rupert, and Keeley (Juno Temple) is now trying to work as the head of her own PR agency. Meanwhile, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) now has to step up as the assistant coach of AFC Richmond along with Beard (Brendan Hunt). The trailer features both Ted and Beard amusingly reacting to Roy as the new assistant coach voicing, “Great job.”
As previously reported by The Blast, Season 3 of the hit series had to face production delays due to the production of the football scenes. Season 2 of the show concluded in October 2021, so the wait for Season 3 was a little longer than the one for Season 2.
Based on the trailer, the wait paid off, as the scenes set in the football stadiums look to be very large-scale and impressive. It gives a nice authenticity to the football sequences, so the wait and effort certainly appear to have paid off.
Now that “Ted Lasso” has won back-to-back Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, the show has proven itself as an awards juggernaut. That means expectations will be bigger than ever for the third season, which will be eligible for the 2023 Primetime Emmy Awards. Last year, the show also won Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for Goldstein, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for M.J. Delaney.
It will be interesting to see if this is the final season for the hit show or not. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the executive producers Hunt and Bill Lawerence said they planned an ending for this season, but the show might continue beyond that. That certainly raises the stakes if this does indeed turn out to be the third and final season for the show.
The wait for Season 3 “Ted lasso” is nearly over. The show returns to Apple TV+ starting March 15. Season 3 will feature 12 episodes, with new episodes releasing on a weekly basis.
