Ted Lasso Season 2 is underway – do you suppose 2021 then?
Just two weeks later, 2021 was already a lot. What could be nicer than knowing that Ted Lasso Season 2 is officially underway.
Apple TV + shared a photo on social media this Friday night of Brendan Hunt (aka Coach Beard), title star Jason Sudeikis, and Nick Mohammed (kit man assistant Nate Shelley).
“Time to warm up those cookies,” read the tweet. “Production for @TedLasso Season 2 has officially started!”
Ted Lasso sneaked up on us all a bit based on a series of amusing Sudeikis-fronted promos for NBC Sports that aired in 2013. an English soccer team … despite zero experience as a soccer coach.
TVLine named Ted Lasso one of the Top 10 Comedies of 2020, while Sudeikis received a nod as Performer of the Week for the episode in which the newly divorced Ted suffered a panic attack. The readers of TVLine gave both the newcomer finals and the first season overall a rare average rating of “A +”.

Apple TV + renewed the lively comedy for a second season just days after its premiere on August 14. There was a season three pickup in late October when Apple TV + claimed Ted Lasso was setting completion records for an original series.
Back in August, the series’ co-creator, Bill Lawrence, told the television’s top 5 podcast that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic would not be taken into account in the coming seasons in order to continue to offer viewers “fleeting entertainment”. (In other words, don’t expect Richmond to fill its seats with cardboard cutouts.)
Hannah Waddingham (sex education), Jeremy Swift (Downton Abbey), Juno Temple (Dirty John), Brett Goldstein (Derek) and Phil Dunster (Humans) complete the cast.
