Good news, Jason Sudeikis fans: Ted Lasso season 3 is officially happening on Apple TV+, and here's what we know about it so far.

The second season of the show swept up at the 2021 Emmy awards, winning a grand total of seven awards all together - including best leading actor, best supporting actress and best supporting actor.

The show follows a small-time football coach who is hired to coach a professional team in England despite having no experience coaching soccer, and the second season dropped in July 2021. Fans don't have to worry about whether they'll get another instalment: the third series was actually already confirmed.

Here's what we know so far.

Where can you watch Ted Lasso in the UK?

Ted Lasso is an Apple+ TV Original. The streaming platform offers a 7-day trial - or included for 3 months when you purchase an Apple device and redeem the offer within 90 days. After that, it's £4.99 a month.

When was season 3 of Ted Lasso confirmed?

As well as starring, Jason is also the mastermind behind the show - and has alway said the show was meant to be three seasons long. "The story that's being told - that three-season arc - is one that I see, know, and understood," he told EW in June. "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."

His co-star Brendan Hunt, who plays Coach Beard, added, "I think we've always meant it to be three seasons. I think it would be pretty cool if, in the face of how much everyone likes this show, that we stick to our guns and really just do three seasons.'

What will happen in season 3 of Ted Lasso?

The truth is, we don't know - because even the cast and crew are in the dark. As actress Juno Temple, who plays Keeley, told T&C, "I don't know huge amounts of what's going to happen to Keeley, but there's something very special about that too, because it means you're kind of living life as Keeley for five months and you can't predict the future too much."

Toheeb Jimoh, who plays footballer Sam Obisanya on the series, has also been struggling to get info from Jason, adding "I'm just trying to pull any information out of him [about future seasons]. But he's been a Jedi master with all of that stuff."

Who will star in season 3 of Ted Lasso?

Many of Ted Lasso's season 1 cast returned for season 2, so we can maybe assume they'll be back for season 3, too. They include:

  • Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso

  • Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Welton

  • Brett Goldstein as Roy Kent

  • Brendan Hunt as Coach Beard

  • Nick Mohammed as Nathan "Nate the Great" Shelley

  • Juno Temple as Keely Jones

  • Jeremy Swift as Leslie Higgins

  • Phil Dunster as Jamie Tartt

  • Toheeb Jimoh and Sam Obisanya

  • Cristo Fernandez as Dani Rojas

  • James Lance as Trent Crimm

  • Kola Bokinni as Isaac, Richmond's vice-captain

  • Annette Badland as Mae, the pub landlord

When will season 3 of Ted Lasso be released?

An official premiere date has not been confirmed, but based on the previous seasons, we can expect the third instalment during summer 2022. The first dropped in August 2020 and the second in July 2021. Maybe June 2022?!

What happens in season 2 of Ted Lasso?

Er, we don't actually know much yet. Ted Lasso season 2 launched on Friday, July 23, with episodes dropping every Friday after that. There are 12 episodes (instead of 10 like the first series) which vary between 30 and 40 minutes in length.

Ted Lasso at the 2021 Emmys

Alongside The Queen's Gambit and The Crown, Ted Lasso season two won big at the 2021 Emmy awards, which looks to reward the best cast and crew in the world of TV.

The show won seven awards in total, with Jason Sudeikis named best lead comedy actor for his performance, while his British co-stars, Hannah Waddingham and Brett Goldstein, won best supporting actress and actor respectively.
