Ted Lasso Season 3 Is Coming to Apple TV Soon! Here’s What We Know So Far
Will Ted and Nate continue their feud? Will Roy and Keeley get back together? Inside all of the details about the upcoming season of Apple TV's favorite feel-good show.
Our hearts are already feeling warm and fuzzy! On Feb. 14, Apple + gave the world a sweet Valentine’s gift when they dropped the new trailer for Ted Lasso season 3—and announced when it would finally be coming back.
The series, which follows the story of a ragtag soccer team in London and their always-optimistic American coach Ted Lasso, has been a fan favorite since dropping in 2020. Jason Sudeikis, who stars in the show, has attributed its popularity to the main character promoting kindness. “I personally didn’t want to play a buffoon, or use our time and our scripts to humanize a bastard—that had been done,” Sudeikis has said of his character. “Ted… he’s looking for the best parts of life.”
The series has proven to be a hit around the globe, landing on all sorts of best TV show of the year lists. In 2021, it won four of its 13 Primetime Emmy nominations and a slew of awards since then. That same year, it also won a Peabody for being a show that offers “the perfect counter to the enduring prevalence of toxic masculinity… in a moment when the nation needs inspiring models of kindness.”
Needless to say, fans can’t wait for its return, and we have all the details you need to know!

When Will Ted Lasso Season 3 Premier?
We don’t have to wait much longer now! Apple TV+ announced that season 3 of Ted Lasso would drop on March 15. However, don’t get excited about being able to binge it all at once. Ted Lasso follows the traditional TV model of releasing new episodes weekly, so viewers can catch the 12-episode series every Wednesday night after the premiere.
Where Can I Watch Ted Lasso Season 3?
You do need to have a subscription to Apple TV+ in order to stream Ted Lasso season 3—the show isn’t available on any other streaming outlets, and no, you can’t rent it from Amazon Prime. The good news is, Apple TV+ offers all sorts of trials if you’re not already a subscriber.
Is Season 3 of Ted Lasso the End?

Sadly, it’s most likely over after this season. It was always going to be a three-season series, but after it became such a hit, there was some talk that more seasons would be greenlit.
Unfortunately, most of the actors have confirmed in interviews that the show would take its final bow after season 3. Hannah Waddingham, who plays AFC Richmond team owner Rebecca Welton, recently told E! News that if there were more seasons to film, she hadn’t been told about it. “I mean, if there is something else going on, I genuinely don’t know about it,” she said.
However, Nick Mohammed, who played assistant coach Nate Shelley, has said more seasons are at least an option. “Genuinely, who knows? It might just have a break and then come back, or it might be the end, but I don’t know.” We can believe! Also, fans have grown so attached to some of the characters in the show that spin-offs are also always possible. (A series centered around the post-soccer star career of the hilariously grumpy Roy Kent? People would watch!)
What’s Happened So Far on Ted Lasso?
When we left off after season 2, there were all sorts of turmoil going on with the team and its players. Nate Shelley went from being Ted Lasso’s right-hand man and assistant coach to his biggest rival, joining the West Ham United team as its new coach. Season 3 will clearly continue to story of their soured friendship—but will they make up in the end? I mean, who can stay mad at Ted Lasso for long? Former player-turned-coach Roy Kent, played by Brett Goldstein, was heartbroken over his split from the team’s PR guru Keeley Jones (Juno Temple), and team owner Rebecca Welton was struggling with her feelings for one of the young players, Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh.)
Time to win the whole f***ing thing.

Of course, there’s also the arc of the once-crumbling team finding its footing, and rising the ranks in the league. In a tweet released by Apple TV+ on Jan. 18, the streaming network dropped a picture of Ted Lasso facing off with Nate Shelley, captioning it, “Time to win the whole f***ing thing.” If this were your typical feel-good sports show, that would mean AFC Richmond would become league champions in season 3, but the show was never really about winning. Instead, it’s about the journey, the friendships, the mistakes made, and the lessons learned while being part of a team. As Sudeikis has said in an interview, “Ted Lasso isn’t a show, it’s a vibe.”
