Third-Season Premiere Episode of ‘Ted Lasso’ Launching March 15 on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ Feb. 14 announced that the first episode of the third season of critically-acclaimed soccer comedy “Ted Lasso” is set to launch on March 15, starring Jason Sudeikis as an American football coach hired to manage a lower-level Premier League soccer team despite knowing nothing about the sport.

Following back-to-back Emmy Award wins for the show’s freshman and sophomore seasons, Apple said season three new episodes will drop every Wednesday, which marks the first Apple TV+ series to launch mid-week.

The 12-episode new season finds the newly-promoted AFC Richmond soccer team facing ridicule as media predictions peg them to finish last, while team manager Ted (Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work and personal issues back home.

The second season of “Ted Lasso” broke records by becoming 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 (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 now joins 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.”

After its global debut, season one became the most Emmy-nominated freshman comedy series in history, landing top honors and awards. 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 (Sudeikis); three Critics Choice Awards, including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series (Sudeikis), and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (Hannah Waddingham). The Writers Guild of America crowned the show for both Best Comedy and Best New Series.
