The Ted Lasso series, which released its first season in August, will end at the end of season 3.
It was the creator of the series himself who announced that it would end once this season 3 was completed. “Ted Lasso” is one of Apple TV+’s biggest hits and the series has played a pretty big role in the growth of Apple’s platform subscribers. But the creators of the latter have decided that this third season, which should be released in a little while, will be the last – barring a miracle -.
The series, which became popular with the release of its season 1 in early summer 2020, brought many new users to Apple’s SVOD platform. It tells the story of Ted Lasso, an American football coach who is hired to coach a football team (in its kick version that we all know) although the latter is no skill in this sport. The series therefore follows its adaptation and its daily life in an atmosphere rather turned towards comedy.
The creator of the latter, Bill Lawrence, who hopes to see the production of his season 2 begin in January in the United Kingdom, if the sanitary conditions allow it, announced that his series would therefore come to an end. He who resigned with Apple TV + for a season 2 and 3 explain that the third will be the last of the series.
“Ted Lasso is a series with an end”
By drawing the parallel with The Mandalorian (the phenomenon series of Disney + which is part of the Star Wars universe), Lawrence explains that The Mandalorian can continue, because it is based on a vast universe, where Ted Lasso is the only series of this universe. “Ted Lasso is a series with an end” he explains in the podcast Fake Doctors, Real Friends by Zach Braff and Donald Faison.
But Lawrence does not completely abandon the idea of making a season 4. He may even seem quite willing in some of his statements. “After the third season, I will try desperately to convince Jason Sudeikis” (the main actor) he declares before recovering:
“The only way a fourth season of Ted Lasso would exist would be if he (Ted Lasso) was going to coach a football team that played about a block from Jason’s house in real life, you see that what i mean? thus leaving doubt about the future of the series, and putting the weight of the decision on the shoulders of Jason Sudeikis, the actor of Ted Lasso.
For its part Apple TV+ seems ready to drop its jewel “Ted Lasso” which still has good years ahead of it. If the end of the series is indeed announced in this way by Lawrence, the latter should only arrive on our screens in a few years. Enough to give the Apple platform time to develop other original content. In this sense, we recently learned that Samuel L Jackson was going to play in a mini series exclusive to Apple TV + in the coming months.
