TED LASSO will return for a third season next year, and producer Bill Lawrence has confirmed two fan favourite characters will play pivotal roles despite their supposed departures in the latest finale.
Football-based sitcom Ted Lasso has become one of the most talked-about series of 2021 after some stunning surprises in season two. Co-creator Bill Lawrence has recently opened up about what fans can expect from its third and possibly final instalment when it arrives on Apple TV+ next year.
Bill Lawrence has confirmed both Dr Sharon Fieldstone (played by Sarah Niles) and Trent Crimm (James Lance) will both return in Ted Lasso season three.
Both characters were assumed to be leaving the sports-comedy series as the finale appeared to put a cap on their season two storylines.
However, previewing the upcoming season, the producer confirmed they’ll once again be playing major roles when Ted Lasso comes back.
He told Deadline: “I can tell you both of them have significant roles next year.”
Therapist Dr Fieldstone helped much of AFC Richmond confront their various mental health issues, including their upbeat American coach Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) himself.
It appeared her time at the club had come to an end, but Lawrence confirmed she’ll be returning to the main cast for the show’s next outing.
Plus, Trent Crimm of the Independent will also factor into season three, despite losing his job in the finale.
Following Ted’s panic attack during a crucial game against Tottenham Hotspur, assistant coach Nate (Nick Mohammed) provided details of the events as an anonymous tip.
Trent later realised he respected Ted too much to let Nate’s betrayal of his privacy go, and outed him as his source when the news went public.
Fans may have assumed the sports reporter’s arc had come to an end, but Lawrence assured them he’ll be a regular presence in season three.
Although Trent publicised Ted’s private health matters, their shared distrust of ‘Nate the Great’ could make them unlikely allies in the next outing.
Meanwhile, it’s still unclear whether or not the third season will indeed bring the award-winning comedy-drama to a final stop.
Richmond’s endearing underdog story may have captured the hearts of millions of fans worldwide, but star and co-creator Jason Sudeikis maintained Ted Lasso was always envisioned as a three-season arc. . “Brinkwire Summary News”.
