It's been approximately six million days since the last new episode of Ted Lasso.
Okay, it hasn't been quite that long, but the Season 2 finale aired all the way back in Oct. 2021, and the wait for Season 3 has been ETERNAL.
To tide you over until it premieres, here's every single detail we know about Season 3 so far:
1. The show will officially return ON MARCH 15, WHICH IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER.
2. WE HAVE A TRAILER, which a) gave us our first glimpse of these characters in a year and a half and b) gives us a couple hints as to what will happen in Season 3 that we can inhale, dissect, and watch six million more times
3. Jason Sudeikis is effectively the showrunner this season, after previously sharing duties with Bill Lawrence.
4. Season 3 will be the last season of this version of the show.
Apple hasn't made an official announcement, and it seems like there's some wiggle room, but all signs point to Ted Lasso's story being over after Season 3. Here are all the relevant comments from the cast and crew:
Brett Goldstein gave the most direct answer when he told E! News that the series had a 'three-season arc' and is set to come to an end this season.
Bill Lawrence also told Deadline: "I would probably stay clean and say that even if Ted Lasso goes on, the story the writing staff has been telling had a beginning, middle, and end for the first three seasons. And then it might veer off from that."
Here are Jason Sudeikis's comments to Entertainment Weekly in June 2021: "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."
Ted Lasso coordinating producer Adam Hamilton recently posted this heartfelt tribute to the show's cast and crew, with lots of telling past tense language in the caption.
"I asked [Jason] recently," Hannah Waddingham told E! News. "And he went, 'Yeah, I think so, for now.' And I was like, 'OK.'"
On the other hand, Juno Temple told Variety's Award Circuit Podcast back in July 2022 that "No one has told [her] it's over."
