According to Jason Sudeikis, “Ted Lasso” is finished

Jason Sudeikisthe titular star of the popular soccer dramedy – or, if you’re right, football dramedy Ted Lassohas — and it’s obvious now — spoken publicly for the first time since the season 3 finale aired in late May. Ted Lasso told the story of the aforementioned American trainer who was hired as a trick Hannah WaddinghamRebecca Walton is trying to ruin her ex-husband’s beloved AFC Richmond, a London-based soccer team.

But despite skepticism and constant scrutiny from all parts of the English footballing world, Ted’s unorthodox methods win over Rebecca, his team and the fans and the series charts the decline and rise of AFC Richmond under Ted’s methods. The show also addressed issues such as homophobia in sports, mental health and fears, xenophobia and even toxic masculinity.

Sudeikis had remained reticent about the future of the series beyond Season 3 leading up to the finale. In March he said the following: meeting.

“This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we wanted to tell. The fact that people want more and are more curious than what they don’t even know – which is season three – is flattering. Maybe even all episodes of the season [have been released]They’re like, ‘Man, you know what, we got it, we’re fine.’ We don’t need anything anymore, we have it.’ But until then, I’m excited about the curiosity beyond what we’ve dreamed up so far.”

This story is finished

fans who went to the Ted Lasso In the finale, I would have been curious how the series would wrap up the various storylines – the love triangle between Jamie, Roy and Keeley, Nate’s return to Richmond, Rebecca’s war with ex-husband and full-time ass Rupert, Sam’s desire to be capped for Nigeria and of course Ted’s desire to return home to be with his son Henry.

After the final aired, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind in the (almost too regular but) emotional last ten minutes as AFC Richmond finished second in the English Premier League behind great performers Manchester City – their legendary coach Pep Guardiola, a big fan of the series, made a cameo appearance last week – but the support and team were still over the moon with their journey. With Rebecca opting to sell half the club to the fans and Roy, who has now been named head coach alongside Beard and Nate, completing the arc of his character, the club is in good hands. Ted has since returned to Kansas City and is now coaching Henry’s junior football team. And he’s happy.

“This story is finished,” Sudeikis told the hosts Dana Carvey and David Spade on the Fly on the wall podcast. “It sounds like a political answer, but it’s the truth. We just came up with these three.” [seasons]then this thing became this big old thing.

All three seasons of Ted Lasso are now available to watch on Apple TV+.
