Ted Lasso is seen as a cultural phenomenon, as it brings a lot of positivity with each new episode. It seemed like a franchise that would keep going forever, but according to one of its writers and stars, Brett Goldstein, the series is currently being written as its last in an interview with Sunday Times.
We are writing it like that. It was planned as three. Spoiler alert — everyone dies.Brett Goldstein
Yet, as Variety points out, the co-created Jason Sudeikis has confirmed it was originally mapped out with three seasons but was open to continuing. All it would depend on if they have a few ideas to keep it going. He developed the series together with Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt, and Joe Kelly which was actually inspired by a character he played on NBC Sports. Sudekis” quote was as follows:
The story that I know is the one that I wanted to tell, and so that’s the one we’re telling with the help of numerous people in front of and behind the camera, so it’s by no means me typing every key stroke and saying every word,” he said. “It’s nowhere near like that. But the story that’s being told – that three-season arc – is one that I see, know, and understood. I’m glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don’t know.Jason Sudekis
Apple TV+ has quite the success on its hands and they even got the Premier League licensing for the upcoming season. So, it would be strange to go through that deal to only end the series right afterward. It lets them use archival footage and its many logos in the series, which may have had multiple years planned but we’ll find out once they start promoting the third season.
