Ted Lasso is coming back for Season 3, and Apple just released a first look at the upcoming rivalry between Ted and Nathan
Ted Lasso fans, the time is finally here! Apple TV just announced when we can finally get Ted and the gang back on our TV screens, and even dropped a surprise first look at Season 3 (and it already looks intense).
Fans will recall that Season 2 of Ted Lasso ended on a major cliffhanger, with the realization that Nathan had left AFC Richmond to coach rival club West Ham. Throughout Season 2, we saw Ted struggle with his personal demons (and finally give therapy a shot), while he failed to notice Nate’s growing resentment at the amount of unrecognized work he was doing for the Richmond team as an assistant coach. Well, it’s all come to a head, and we can expect to see that drama play out in Season 3 when it premieres this spring.

Apple still hasn’t given us an exact premiere date, but they did drop a first-look photo, which shows an intense-looking Nathan facing off with Ted, who is, of course, all smiles. It’s nice to see that some things never change.Apple TV
Ahead of Season 3, the cast and crew are staying tight-lipped about what viewers can expect. On a recent panel, Ted Lasso co-creator Bill Lawrence said, “I’ve seen cuts, and it’s fucking amazing,” but declined to offer any other details. It’s pretty widely believed, however, that the third season will be the last. Star Jason Sudeikis told Entertainment Weekly last year that he saw a three-season arc being just right for Ted Lasso—though he’d be open to doing more of the show. Sadly, co-star and writer Brett Goldstein has mentioned that the third season is being written as a “curtain call.”
Even if Season 3 is the end of Ted Lasso, the show will have had quite a run by then. It’s one of the most popular series Apple TV has ever produced, racking up 40 Emmy nominations (and 11 wins) in its first two seasons.
