January 18, 2023
Apple TV+ has announced that its comedy “Ted Lasso” will return for its third season in spring 2023.
The second season of “Ted Lasso” was the most Emmy-winning comedy for the second year in a row with four total wins, including Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Jason Sudeikis), Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series (Brett Goldstein), and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series (MJ Delaney). With back-to-back wins for Outstanding Comedy Series, the series joined the ranks of only seven other comedy series in history that have landed Outstanding Comedy Series wins in their first two years: “Modern Family,” “30 Rock,” “Frasier,” “The Golden Girls,” “Cheers,” “All in the Family” and “The Phil Silvers Show.”
Season one of the series was the most Emmy-nominated freshman comedy series in history.
In addition to its Emmy accolades, “Ted Lasso” has been recognized with a Peabody Award; a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series Award for Sudeikis; three Critics Choice Awards, including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Hannah Waddingham, sweeping all categories in which the series was nominated; and Writers Guild of America awards for both Best Comedy and Best New Series.

The series stars Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team — despite having no experience. What he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism and underdog determination. The Apple Original comedy also stars Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Phil Dunster, Nick Mohammed and Sarah Niles.
