On Valentine's Day, Apple TV+ finally gave Ted Lasso fans a taste of the two-time Best Comedy Series Emmy winner's third (and potentially, but hopefully not final) season. I just turned on Youtube on my TV for some background music while I tinkered on photoshop before going to the gym, and BAM! Apple dropped another Ted Lasso S3 crumb (six hours ago).
After two viewings, I've caught the following in conjunction with the first teaser.
I've been rewatching in preparation for S3. Today I watched the Christmas episode, so Nate's dark (or should I say grey?) turn is upcoming, but I can't wait to see how his situation with Rupert's new club plays out on the pitch!
I simply refuse to believe this will be it for the show. Now refusing to believe something doesn't make it any less accurate, right, far-right fascists? I just have a hard time believing everybody behind such a successful and beloved show would call it quits so soon. This isn't the NFL. You don't need to retire too early to prevent brain damage. Keep chasing the bag and making killer content. You aren't Luke Kuechly. Actually, that example low key stinks because Luke probably held on too long. Ted Lasso hanging it up after three seasons is somewhere between Chris Borland and Blake Martinez, except they were as well-decorated as Kuechly.
If I watch it again and slow shit down like the Zapruder Film, I'm sure I'll pick up even more deets, but I'm trying to improve my idea-to-finished product efficiency (holy shit I spelt that right first try). We're not going into extra time here. Ted Lasso is back in like two weeks, and I can't fucking wait!
