Ted Lasso has a devoted following and a slew of admirers. The show follows the story of a former NFL football coach who later takes on the role of head coach of a Premier soccer league team in the United Kingdom. The show’s first season received the most Emmy nominations of any comedy series ever with 20 nominations.
Along with nominations for best comedy series and best writing, the show also garnered nominations for seven cast members (outstanding lead for Jason Sudeikis as Ted; outstanding supporting lead for Brett Goldstein as Roy Kent, Nick Mohammed as Nathan Shelley, Jeremy Swift as Higgins, Brendan Hunt as Coach Beard, Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Welton. and supporting actress for Juno Temple for the role of Keeley Jones.)
The first and second seasons of Apple Tv Ted Lasso were a huge success so it kind of goes without saying that we’ll be seeing more of our favorite NFL coach.
Who Is Ted Lasso? What’s The Show’s Plot?
Ted Lasso is a U.S based sports comedy-drama that follows a sports agent named Ted Lasso who has been recruited to coach an NFL soccer team despite having no prior experience in coaching a soccer team.
The first installment of Ted Lasso spanned a total of 10 episodes and it was also the original idea for season 2. Although it was confirmed in 2021 that the series’ second season would have twelve episodes as apple had added an additional two more episodes.
The extra two episodes were ‘Carol of the Bells,’ and ‘Beard After Hours’ which were focused on Ted Lasso’s beard.
These episodes take a pause from the show’s overarching plot and instead focus on the personal lives of the other characters. While some fans loved the different approach the series took and others despised the departure from the main plot, there has been a rift among fans over these episodes.
