What a wonderful V-day surprise! Apple TV+ dropped a Ted Lasso S3 trailer/teaser (what's the fucking difference?), and to quote one of my favorite celebrities, Lizzo, "IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!"
This teaser doesn't give us much to work with other than some cute team unity, but at least it's something, and the release date is within reach. My biggest concern, however, is if this will actually be the last season of Ted Lasso.
There's been speculation that season 3 will be Ted Lasso's last, but can that seriously be? It's hard to think of a more beloved series of the past 10 years. I haven't met a single person that's seen Ted Lasso and didn't love it. In these fucked up times, the world needs this show's humor and positivity (while still showing the horrors of reality). It's a beacon of light. I love this cast so much. I thought Roy Kent was the best before that was hot online. There are so many incredible characters; this can't be the last we see of Ted, Rebecca, Keeley, Sam, Roy, Higgins, Dani, Beard (I actually am kinda all set with him), ̶N̶a̶t̶e̶, Issac, Mae, Trent, and the pub hooligans. There are so many more! I love how they developed more of the roster last year. The Dutch guy's bluntness running gag all season was great. Colin always produces a laugh, and I need some more Sassy.
This little teaser situation doesn't mention "the final season" or anything. So now I'm hoping Bill Lawrence, Sudekis, and Coach Beard realize how crazy they'd be to end this series so quickly. Three seasons is nothing. The Santa Clarita Diet (I actually loved that show) got three seasons. I get that you don't want to hang around too long and start to suck, but you'd be ending things so quickly that you're making it feel like Barry Sanders played 20 years.
March 15th is a Wednesday, which is an interesting start date, but that gives us plenty of time to rewatch seasons 1 and 2. Fuck, season 3 could drop this Thursday, and I'd still have enough time #funemployed. Season 3 will be 12 episodes, just like last season. I hope Dr. Sharon returns and Jamie Tartt's dad gets hit by a double-decker bus.
This vid is semi-related to Ted Lasso (s/o Jan Wouters) and just a hilarious little bit of American-British dessert that I wanna share with the readers. I hope Milly Pounds and Shirty become a reoccurring update duo (shwoosh, shwoosh, shwoosh).
