Ted Lasso return date confirmed and first teaser released

Ted Lasso is set to return in a month, with a first look at the third season of the popular comedy show Apple TV+ on Tuesday.

It may be February, but the real drama of the football season is just about to begin following the announcement of Lasso’s final season in charge of AFC Richmond.

When we last left the American manager, he had just promoted his team back to the Premier League, but had lost former trusted teammate Nate Shelley, who has now moved on to coach West Ham.

This leads to Ted managing the team alongside longtime friend Coach Beard and former Richmond tough Roy Kent, under the watchful eye of club owner Rebecca Welton.

They’ll all be back for their last bid to stay in the top flight on March 15th, and you can see the first teaser in the video below.

After a first season when players struggled to embrace his somewhat out-of-the-ordinary methods, Players are far behind the former college football coach.

The writing of his own ‘Believe’ signs, in his own way, mirrors the one above the manager’s office and is the mantra he trains with.

It will certainly be interesting to see how the South London team fare against Nate and Rupert Mannion, the former Richmond owner.

The new Hammers manager felt Lasso was transferring him to Kent and let the confidence of being called a ‘wunderkind boy’ for his good ideas go to his head.

Nate also revealed to the press that Lasso had suffered a panic attack before a game, something the club chose not to reveal.

The third installment on Apple TV+ could very well be the last season to see Lasso in Richmond, with the show’s co-creator revealing that it’s definitely the last part of this story.

“This story will end (in season three) regardless, even if the show finds another story to tell and continues”, said Bill Lawrence in October 2021 when the second season ended.

The final season of Lasso will be 12 episodes, which will be released weekly, meaning it will end on May 31, the final date for shows being considered for this year’s Emmys.

The first two series received a combined 40 Emmy Award nominations over two years, breaking a first-year record with 20, and has won 11 to date.
