Ted Lasso is an American sports comedy-drama television series created by Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt, and Joe Kelly. It is based on a character of the same name that Sudeikis first played in a series of promos for NBC Sports’ Premier League coverage.
The series follows Ted Lasso, an American college football coach who is hired to coach an English soccer team in order to spite her ex-husband. While dealing with his inexperience in the sport, Lasso tries to win over the skeptical English market with his folksy, optimistic demeanor.
Ted Lasso Season 3 Plot
According to Ted Lasso editors A.J. Catoline and Melissa McCoy in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Rebecca and Nate will experience some of the most significant character arcs of Season 3.
“Nate’s career is on the rise…
He began as a kitman in season one, then became a coach, and is now the manager of West Ham United “Catoline explained. “As a producer and creator, Jason is extremely generous. He gives each character a storyline. That’s probably why [the episodes] are so long… He wants every character to have an arc because there are so many storylines.”
Ted Lasso Season 3 Cast
The majority of the cast will return for Season 3, led by Jason Sudeikis, of course. Becky Ann Baker (The Resort) has been cast as Ted’s mother, and Jodi Balfour (The Crown) has joined the cast as Jack, a charming venture capitalist. We’re excited to see how these new characters fit in!
More casting news: we’ve reached the “meet the parents” stage in our Ted Lasso relationship, as Season 3 will introduce us to Becky Ann Baker, who has been cast as Ted’s mother, according to Above the Line. With shows like Freaks and Geeks and Girls under her belt, the actress is no stranger to playing a mother figure.
Now that Baker will be donning a new pair of mom jeans as Ted’s mother, we wonder what it was like to raise the boy who grew up to be the cheery, anecdotal football coach. Perhaps he got his love of baking from her. Ted once stated, “I love meeting people’s mothers. It’s like reading an instruction manual to figure out why they’re insane.”

Ted Lasso Season 3 Release Date
There is no set date. Season 3’s 12-episode run was originally scheduled to begin in the fall of 2022. That’s not going to happen with the aforementioned delays. Season 3 is expected to be released in winter or early spring 2023, according to Puck, but even that broad timeframe is subject to change.
Season 3 will be the series’ final season. According to Deadline, the show’s writers and producers, which include Sudeikis, Brett Goldstein, and Bill Lawrence, have confirmed that Season 3 will be the series finale. Having said that, Lawrence did leave the door open for more Ted Lasso in an interview with Deadline.
“Even if Ted Lasso continues, the story the writing staff has been telling had a beginning, middle, and end for the first three seasons,” the co-creator explained. “And then it might deviate from that.” But, in the end, it’s up to Sudeikis, and he appears to be leaning toward three-and-out rather than continuing the show after the upcoming season.
Hannah Waddingham addressed the rumors that this is the final season as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel in July, saying, “I don’t know why that’s come out so fervently because we don’t know that for sure.”
“Even if we left it at that, Jason has pointed out that that’s just where we leave (the characters) for now… and that’s how I’m going to have to think about it, or I’m going to be a terrible mess,” she continued. Hannah is exactly the same.
