Ted Lasso star and writer Brett Goldstein confirmed that Season 3 will mark the end of the hit Apple TV+ series. Goldstein told told U.K.’s The Sunday Times when asked if the show would conclude in the third season: “We are writing it like that. It was planned as three. Spoiler alert: everyone dies.”
Goldstein’s comments are consistent with what co-creator and star Jason Sudeikis said back in 2021, when he envisioned the series ending after three seasons. Sudeikis told Entertainment Weekly: “The story that I know is the one that I wanted to tell, and so that’s the one we’re telling with the help of numerous people in front of and behind the camera. So it’s by no means me typing every key stroke and saying every word. It’s nowhere near like that. But the story that’s being told — that three-season arc — is one that I see, know, and understood. I’m glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don’t know.”
Ted Lasso, developed by Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly, is based on a character Sudeikis originally portrayed in a series of promos for NBC Sports’ coverage of the English Premier League. The series follows Ted Lasso, an American college football coach who is hired to coach an English soccer team in the EPL. The show premiered in August 2020 and quickly turned into a smash hit.
The third season of Ted Lasso is currently in production in the U.K. and is set to premiere later this year.
