“Ted Lasso” star Jason Sudeikis says that season 3 is the end of that particular story — but there may be more coming from AFC Richmond.
“Ted Lasso” creator Bill Lawrence said that the show would likely end after season three, and cast members shared final goodbyes in November. Speaking to Deadline, Jason Sudeikis didn’t share details but said it was the end of the story they wanted to tell.
“This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we were hoping to tell, that we loved to tell,” Sudeikis said. “The fact that folks will want more and are curious beyond more than what they don’t even know yet — that being Season 3 — it’s flattering.”
“Maybe by May 31, once all 12 episodes of the season [have been released], they’re like, ‘Man, you know what, we get it, we’re fine. We don’t need anymore, we got it,'” he added. “But until that time comes, I will appreciate the curiosity beyond what we’ve come up with so far.”
However, Sudeikis mentioned the prospect of a Ted Lasso spin-off focusing on one of the other characters in the show.
“Yeah, I think that we’ve set the table for all sorts of folks…to get to watch the further telling of these stories,” he said. “Again, I can’t help but take the question as flattery for what all of us that were working on the show has tried to do.
“It’s really kind of folks to even consider that because you never know what’s gonna happen when you make things, Sudeikis said. “The fact that people want more, even if it’s a different avenue is lovely.”
Season three of “Ted Lasso” premieres on March 15, with twelve episodes, and ends on May 31. It will follow the newly-promoted AFC Richmond, facing ridicule as media predictions bid them as last in the Premier League.
