Ted Lasso fans love the show for its relentless optimism, but we have some bad news: Ted Lasso Season 3 might be its final season, writer and actor Brett Goldstein said in an interview with the Sunday Times.
“We are writing it like that,” Goldstein, who writes for the show in addition to playing Roy Kent on it, told the Sunday Times. “It was planned as three.” Variety notes that Jason Sudeikis told Entertainment Weekly the same thing almost exactly a year ago, so Goldstein isn’t revealing anything that hasn’t already been said.
“The story that I know is the one that I wanted to tell, and so that’s the one we’re telling with the help of numerous people in front of and behind the camera, so it’s by no means me typing every keystroke and saying every word,” Goldstein said. “It’s nowhere near like that. But the story that’s being told–that three-season arc–is one that I see, know, and understood. I’m glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don’t know.”
