Fans of the Emmy-winning comedy series “Ted Lasso” were delighted to hear the news that the show’s third season has started filming. Since its release in August 2020, the series has managed to become a cultural phenomenon with its heartwarming and funny portrayal of an American football coach who is recruited to manage a soccer team in England. With the second season leaving us on a cliffhanger, fans are eagerly waiting for the third season to release. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at what we know so far about the upcoming season of “Ted Lasso.”
Return of the Cast:
One of the most exciting pieces of news about the forthcoming season is that the main cast members are returning. The charming and affable Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso is back, as well as Juno Temple as Keeley and Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca. The other cast members, including Brett Goldstein, Jeremy Swift, and Phil Dunster, are also reprising their roles. With the addition of new cast members, the series promises to bring fresh stories and exciting plot twists that will keep us hooked.
The first two seasons of the show were directed by Jason Sudeikis himself along with other directors such as Zach Braff and MJ Delaney. However, for the third season, a new director has been brought onboard. This time, it is Moroccan-American director, writer and producer, Mimi Leder, known for her work on the iconic series “ER,” and more recently, “The Morning Show.” Her addition to the team brings a new perspective and style, which will undoubtedly elevate the show.
Details about the plot are still scarce at this point. However, the second season left us with a cliffhanger, as AFC Richmond, the team managed by Ted Lasso, suffered a major setback. Fans are hopeful that the third season will pick up from where the previous one left off and dive deeper into Lasso’s personal life. Fans also expect the season to address the social issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The previous seasons were filmed in various locations throughout the UK, including Richmond, London, and Berkshire. However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there are likely to be some limitations when it comes to filming locations. The cast and crew have been seen around different parts of London and have been filming at Borehamwood Studios where the Warner Bros. Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter is located, though, which seems to be the primary location.
While there is no official release date yet, we can safely assume that the third season will premiere in late 2022. This timeline is based on the fact that the show is still shooting, post-production, and other aspects required for the show to release. Fans have high expectations for the upcoming season, and we are all excited to see where the show takes us next.
“Ted Lasso” has already made an impression on viewers worldwide, with its authentic characters, compelling storylines, and delightful humor. With the new season currently in production, fans of the show have a lot to look forward to. From the return of the original cast to the exciting new developments with the plot, “Ted Lasso” season 3 promises to be an exciting and engaging outing that will have fans laughing and rooting for the team of the AFC Richmond. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Lasso and his team on and off the field.
