Jason Sudeikis and Ted Lasso were a couple of the big winners at last night’s Prime Time Emmy Awards. The AppleTV+ comedy took home the Outstanding Comedy Series for the second year in a row. And Sudeikis scooped up Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy
Series for his portrayal of the titular soccer manager.
As the series heads into Season 3, the media pressed Sudeikis for details on the series’ future, as the show had previously been believed to be ending after the upcoming third season. Will there be a Ted Lasso Season 4?
Will There Be a Ted Lasso Season 4?
“I don’t know, it’s up to more actors than myself. The response has been overwhelming.” Sudeikis answered reporters backstage
at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater.
“We have a tremendous group of writers, actors, people in production and post-production, all of those thrown in the jambalaya of possibility. I couldn’t say yes or no. I know this part of the show is what it’s supposed to be,” Sudeikis adds. “I apologize for not giving you a direct answer because that’s more helpful for headlines.”
Sudeikis, 46, went on to say how much he truly loves working with the cast and crew on the series, saying, “Every single person up here gets along with each other, they support each other, both as artists and human beings.”
“Every single day we show up, it’s just fun. People care about each other. They want to see the best for each other. What a terrific reason
to do a Season 4, right?” he adds.
Ted Lasso Was Planned as a Three-Season Series
Jason Sudeikis’ co-star Brett Goldstein, who won the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy for his portrayal of Roy Kent for the second time, is also a writer on the show and he recently confirmed the Season 3 finale was being written as the complete ending for the series.
“We are writing it like that. It was planned as three.” Goldstein confirms.
Executive Producer Bill Lawrence has also previously stressed that “we said this series was only going to be three seasons.”
Could the series go beyond three seasons? It’s certainly possible. There’s no shortage of demand from fans, and the series is well-loved by critics and fans alike. It’ll likely come down to the series’ creators and producers’ willingness to extend the storyline beyond Season 3. And if they are willing, it will then be up to the cast to decide whether or not they want to renew or renegotiate their contracts.
Either way, we’ll keep you posted on Ted Lasso Season 3 and beyond as additional details and news surface!
