Ted Lasso Season 2: Release Date, Plot And Who’s in The Cast

Ted Lasso Season 2

Ted Lasso season 2 is in the works at the moment. Not only was this heartwarming sports-themed comedy given the green light for a second season, but the surprise smash hit Apple TV Plus original was revived for now 3 — and that’s all before Lasso’s team at AFC Richmond have even kicked off in English football’s second tier, and that’s where they will find themselves next season.

Ted Lasso turned out to become a massive hit, drawing in 25% new audiences to Apple’s relatively new streaming service,  Additionally, it is been shown to be an awards contender, with the series nominated for 2 Golden Globes in 2021, winning one for Jason Sudeikis’ winning performance as Lasso.

That’s probably because the big-hearted reveal about a clueless American coach managing an English football team is only partly about soccer. Ted Lasso’s first time concentrated on the dysfunctional relationships of its nuanced, humorous characters, and there is plenty for real soccer fans to enjoy, with no show leaning too heavily on lazy Anglo-American culture battle jokes.

However, AFC Richmond is in for a tumultuous season — about the pitch, anyhow. In a more general sense, we are expecting more comfy character minutes from Ted Lasso season 2, alongside what will be an uplifting comeback story for your group.

Together with spoilers for its first season throughout, below we will explain everything we understand about Ted Lasso season 2 so much, including its release date, cast, and the number of episodes we are going to see next moment.

When will Ted Lasso Season 2 be released?

We don’t have an exact date yet on when you are going to be able to watch the first episodes of Ted Lasso Season 2 (Apple TV+ typically releases episodes of its series every week, a few episodes at a time), but we’ve got an overall idea.

Season 1 has been released in August 2020, and Season 2 began production back in January of 2021.

Apple TV+ at a point stated in a Tweet that Season 2 of Ted Lasso could be released in Summer 2021, but the Tweet has since been deleted; this might signify that promising a Summer launch was jumping the gun a bit, or it could mean that the announcement will just come in a more official capacity in a future date. We’ll have to see!

Who’s in the cast of Ted Lasso season 2?

First things first: Sudeikis will probably be returning as the title character for Ted Lasso season 2. Ted Lasso also celebrities Hannah Waddingham as Rebecca Walton, the new owner of this AFC Richmond staff who initially wants to ruin them to get revenge on her husband, and she’ll be back for season 2 as well. Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) and Keeley Jones (Juno Temple) will be part of this sophomore-season enjoyable also.

As for some of the other characters, Keep Reading at your own risk, as there are spoilers ahead for Ted Lasso season 1.

Two of Lasso’s players ended season 1 on either a retired or team, so it’s unclear how big of a role they’ll have in season 2. One is Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein), that receives a possibly-career-finishing injury in the tenth episode of season 1 and makes the decision to retire. It appears that Goldstein is officially returning as Roy, as he talked about season 2 in an interview with TV Insider, but what is next because of his personality is unknown. The other player whose potential with AFC Richmond is ambiguous is Jamie Tartt (Phil Dunster). At the end of Ted Lasso season 1, Jamie is called back to play for Manchester City, since he had been on loan to AFC Richmond. It is almost certain that the character will look in season two, and fans expect he’ll make his way back into Lasso along with the group.

In terms of the remainder of the cast of Ted Lasso, celebrities Mohammed, Toheeb Jimoh, Cristo Fernández, and Jeremy Swift all appear to be returning for season 2 as well, and there’ll likely be a few new faces in the new season.

Ted Lasso season 2 story: life in the lower leagues

While we do not know much about Ted Lasso season 2’s story yet, we’ve got a fantastic idea of where it’ll go. The headline for Richmond F.C. is they’ve been relegated from the Premier League into the Championship, courtesy of a last-minute winner out of Jamie Tartt’s Manchester City.

The soccer side of Ted Lasso will probably be preoccupied with adjusting to the new level, then, however, given the proposed three-season arc, we predict an immediate return to English soccer’s top tier, with Richmond battling for the Premier League title in season 3. Well, odd things can happen in football.

However, while Tartt’s loan spell has been terminated in the season 1, Lasso’s special coaching methods and emphasis on teamwork won Jamie over. Perhaps Tartt will turn his back on his abusive father for good and help Richmond on the way to a Premier League return.

Ted Lasso is more about the players, team, and their own families than it’s soccer. We’ll also see Rebecca’s continued feud with her ex-husband (Anthony Head), Roy adjusting to life from their first team, as well as Keeley, also Ted’s struggles with his divorce and space from his loved ones.
