AFC Richmond fans rejoice! Apple TV+ have unveiled the trailer for the
highly anticipated second season of the beloved, award-winning comedy
series, “Ted Lasso.” After striking a chord with audiences all around the
world through its cast of characters and powerful message of optimism, “Ted
Lasso” will return for season two on Friday, July 23, 2021 on Apple TV+.
The 12-episode second season will premiere with two episodes, followed by
one new episode weekly, every Friday.
Since its debut in August 2020, “Ted Lasso” has been honored with global
recognitions including a recently announced Peabody Award, Screen Actors
Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
and a Golden Globe Award in the Best Comedy Actor category. The series also
triumphed at the 2021 Critics Choice Awards, sweeping every category for
which it was nominated, securing wins for Best Comedy Series, Best Actor
for Jason Sudeikis and Best Supporting Actress for Hannah Waddingham. In
addition, the series has picked up two Writers Guild Awards for Best New
Series and Best Comedy Series, nominations from the Producers Guild of
America for Comedy Series, as well as honors from many other Guild and
critics groups. “Ted Lasso” was also the only comedy series honored as an
AFI Program of the Year and has regularly appeared on television critics'
“Best of 2020” lists.
Jason Sudeikis is Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a
British soccer team—despite having no experience. But what he lacks in
knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, underdog determination...and
biscuits. The widely acclaimed series also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan
Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick
Mohammed. Sarah Niles joins the cast this season as ‘Sharon,’ a sports
psychologist who has been brought in to work with AFC Richmond.
In addition to starring, Sudeikis serves as executive producer, alongside
Bill Lawrence via his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros.
Television and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Doozer’s Jeff Ingold also serves as an executive producer with Liza Katzer
as co-executive producer. The series was developed by Sudeikis, Bill
Lawrence, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly, and is based on the pre-existing
format and characters from NBC Sports.
The complete first season of “Ted Lasso '' is available on Apple TV+ on the
Apple TV app.
