Is Ted Lasso ending with season three? That's the question on top of everyone's minds as the final episodes of the season drop on Apple TV+.

"This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we were hoping to tell, that we loved to tell," creator and star Jason Sudeikis told Deadline in March 2023. "The fact that folks will want more and are curious beyond more than what they don’t even know yet—that being Season 3—it’s flattering. Maybe by May 31, once all 12 episodes of the season [have been released], they’re like, 'Man, you know what, we get it, we’re fine. We don’t need anymore, we got it.' But until that time comes, I will appreciate the curiosity beyond what we’ve come up with so far."

The show was always intended to have a three-season arc. "We are writing it like that," Brett Goldstein, who plays Roy Kent, told Sunday Times of season three being the last. "It was planned as three. Spoiler alert: Everyone dies," he joked.

"I think we've always meant it to be three seasons," Brendan Hunt, who plays Coach Beard, told EW. "I think it would be pretty cool if, in the face of how much everyone likes this show, that we stick to our guns and really just do three seasons. But even as committed to that idea as Jason may have been, none of us were prepared to the degree to which people love this show. Usually shows don't have that kind of effect if they say the word 'f---' so many times. We're kind of in no man's land here, still being discombobulated by the response and I think that could make hard-hearted old Sudeikis soften up a little bit. I will say that, whatever he decides, I will happily abide."

A week after the last episode of season three dropped, Apple TV+ tweeted "Smells like potential," with a still of Coach Beard, Roy Kent, and Nate. Could this hint at a spin-off of Ted Lasso? That's what fans are speculating in the replies.

In August, Director Declan Lowney told the Hollywood Reporter that Ted Lasso could have "kept going, but it had done its thing — the three-season arc, that was the deal, that was what [Sudeikis] wanted. But I feel there’s something else… There will be other things." He added, "Everybody knew it was the end, but it’s also the end for now. [Laughs.] It’s going to be two or three years before anything happens — if anything happens — so let’s try and tie up all these stories properly." So perhaps there is a spinoff in the future, if Lowney is correct.

When the 2023 Emmy nominations were released, Ted Lasso scored 21 nods, including for Best Comedy Series, and many publications described the nominations as for the show's "final season." Still, Apple TV+ has been reluctant to call season three the final season, so there could, hypothetically, be more stories to tell in the Ted Lasso universe. Shop Now
