‘Ted Lasso’ Stars On If Season 3 Will Be The End

Will Ted Lasso End After Upcoming Season 3? Yes and no. The show’s stars continue to dance around the theme, as the door isn’t closed just yet — until at least series star and co-creator Jason Sudeikis says so definitively.

For now, Brett Goldstein — who stars as former footballer Roy Kent and also serves as a writer on the show — threads that needle carefully: “It’s written in such a way that the story that we’ve told will come to a conclusion,” said he Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast. “And that’s the way it was always planned. That doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t go on. But it’s sort of a three-act ending to this story.”

Goldstein and other “Ted Lasso” stars, as well as Emmy nominees Hannah Waddingham and Juno Temple, stopped by the podcast for a lively chat about the future of the show, their dream projects, their close bond, and what’s next. Listen below!

“The good thing is we really don’t know,” Waddingham said. “I would definitely have screwed it up by now and said, ‘Oh, no, no, we’re teasing you.’ ”

Waddingham, who plays Rebecca, said she’d dreaded the end of Ted Lasso since it started, “and thought, ‘Oh God, when is this going to end?’ I don’t want to leave this character!”

Like Goldstein, Temple, who plays Keeley on the show, says she doesn’t know the answer to “Ted Lasso’s” future after Season 3. “Nobody told me it was over,” she said. “Nobody told me that. And but nobody said that it isn’t. So I’m not literally in limbo.”

Goldstein notes that it is in Sudeiki’s hands. “And he can decide what he wants,” he said. “And we will trust anything he says.”

Waddingham added: “And maybe he deserves a break too.”

While it’s technically the ending for “Ted Lasso,” Temple noted that “things never have to fully end. Things may come back years later, or they may not… When a show comes to an end, these characters don’t die, they move on and live their little fruitful lives in someone’s imagination. So you can come back to that. And I know as actors we will all miss her very much. I’m sure. Keeley taught me so much about being kinder to myself and I really miss her when I don’t get to play her.

“But I also think there’s something there too, you don’t want to push something so far that it doesn’t become the joy that it is,” she added. “It’s my fault when a show ends. I remember when ‘Friday Night Lights’ finally ended I was like ‘NEVER!’”

Waddingham said she was like that when Schitt’s Creek ended. “I was really devastated that I wouldn’t have Catherine O’Hara on my telly anymore,” she said. ‘[But] You don’t want it to be watered down and less than it was. That’s the biggest thing for me. That it’s a beautiful unit just the way it is. And if it stays that way, and that’s the way it should be.”

Temple added, “But we’re not saying that’s the case!”

Goldstein, Waddingham and Temple are all nominated for their supporting roles in “Ted Lasso,” awards both Goldstein and Waddingham won last year, in addition to Sudekis’ Lead Actor win and the series’ Comedy Series win. The show is slated for another 20 Emmys this year, the most of any comedy.

In Season 2 of “Ted Lasso,” the season of Rebecca, owner of AFC Richmond, played by Waddingham, begins with a dud but eventually begins an unlikely relationship with one of the team’s players, Sam. Meanwhile, Roy Kent, played by Goldstein, is struggling to adjust to life after retiring from playing football while forming a relationship with Keeley, played by Temple, who is also exploring her own new career.

Waddingham, Goldstein and Temple not only spoke about the future of the show, but also their excitement at Goldstein’s guest appearance in the latest Thor movie. They also shared what they’re looking forward to next, including Waddingham’s forthcoming new rendition of Tom Jones and Temple’s role in the final season of Fargo.
