Beloved and bumbling U.S.-football-turned-U.K.football coach Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) returns for season two of Apple TV+’s critically acclaimed comedy on July 23, the service said Tuesday during its all-day press event. The series already has been renewed for a third season.
Ted Lasso, which is based on a popular content marketing piece for NBC Sports, scooped up lots of awards over the past year, and most recently won best comedy series, best actor and best supporting actress for Hannah Waddingham at the 2021 Critics’ Choice Awards. In addition, Sudeikis won the Golden Globe and the series won two Writers Guild Awards for best new and best comedy series.
Besides Sudeikis and Waddingham, the series also stars Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick Mohammed. Sarah Niles joins the cast in season two.
Sudeikis executive produces alongside Bill Lawrence via his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content. Doozer’s Jeff Ingold also serves as an executive producer with Liza Katzer as co-executive producer. The series was developed by Sudeikis, Lawrence, Hunt and Joe Kelly.
