Following the show’s celebrity Jason Sudeikis won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series — Comedy at the 2021 ceremony, Ted Lasso lovers are more excited about the show’s upcoming next season. The show is, obviously, roughly Ted Lasso (Sudeikis), an American football coach who’s hired to coach the English Premier League AFC Richmond football (soccer) team, despite knowing nothing about the sport. With a strong country accent and very American traits, Ted comes across as a joke to a lot of individuals, but he is quite smart and gets the spirit to push his team into a win.
The first 3 episodes of Ted Lasso premiered on Apple TV+ on August 14, 2020. Certainly, the series did quite well, as Apple revived Ted Lasso for another season just five days after its premiere. Not only is the show’s fanbase powerful and only growing bigger in strength and size, but critics also adore Ted Lasso, providing the first season a 90 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In addition to all of that, Apple handed Ted Lasso the third season in October 2020, before season 2 even went into production, the third season of Ted Lasso is also very likely to be the series’ last, as co-creator Bill Lawrence noted on the Fake Physicians, Real Friends podcast that Sudeikis is likely the main character’s arc for a three-season story.
As fans wait for Ted Lasso season 2, let us consider what we know about it so far.
Ted Lasso season 2 release date: When will it air?
We’re pretty certain the new season will begin in summer 2021, thanks to a now-deleted tweet by an Apple+ social media person who has likely been delivered to the subs chair after that ancient reveal.

The first season landed in August 2020, and the show is presently shooting (film and TV production is considered a crucial function from the current UK lockdown), so we’d expect Ted and his staff to return in the same month this year.
Ted Lasso season 2 cast: getting the squad back together
Aside from the tweet above verifying the return of Jeremy Swift’s shy Director of Football, Higgins, we do not have any official confirmation of those cast members who will be reprising their roles to Ted Lasso season two. Naturally, there’s no Ted Lasso without the man himself (Jason Sudeikis): Lasso was envisioned next to Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) and Coach Nate (Nick Mohammed) in Apple’s season 2 production statement tweet, so we know they’re back, at least.
Odds are we’ll see lots of other familiar faces, including the chairman, Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham), and Keeley Jones (Juno Temple). Brett Goldstein’s legendarily grumpy Roy Kent may be from the first group, but expect to see him adapting to retired life. And Jamie Tartt (Phil Dunster) may have returned to Manchester City, but the door has been left available for the star to save Richmond.
Teams tend to change significantly when they fall into divisions, especially from the Premier League into the Championship, so there’s a sensible chance for co-creator Bill Lawrence to sign some new players to Richmond. We’ll have to wait and see on that front, in regards to new cast members.
Ted Lasso Season 2 Story
Ted Lasso season 1 on Apple TV+ ends with heartbreak, as AFC Richmond nearly saves their Premier League status but ends up dropping to Manchester City. Sudeikis’ character learns a valuable lesson about the English football plan, as he understands that a single tie will allow him to avoid relegation. Regrettably, however, he sees a match-tying goal too soon and fails to properly manage his players in the immediate aftermath. As a result of a powerful business relationship with Rebecca, nevertheless, Ted manages to keep his job also urges the team to concentrate on the future.
Moving forward, Ted Lasso season 2 will be a redemption story, at least when the writers take a conventional storytelling strategy. What is especially fascinating, though, is the concept that the story’s focus will not necessarily be on AFC Richmond’s possible promotion, but rather on the development of the characters and their personal lives. In any situation, expect Ted to be far more educated about English football during Ted Lasso season two.
