Mark your calendars! The end of Ted Lasso’s journey has reached its final stop. Here is everything we know so far about the final episode of Ted Lasso Season 3.

After weeks, the third season of the sports comedy-drama television series, which premiered back on March 15, 2023, on Apple TV+ for the 2023 television season, is coming to an end as the 12-episode season has now been confirmed to conclude later this month on Wednesday, May 31, 2023.

We would also like to highlight that the details about the final episode haven’t been disclosed yet in order to avoid early spoilers, which is understandable considering that it is always fun to stream the episode without any prior knowledge to enjoy and be on the edge of your seat!

Ted Lasso Season 3: What to expect in the final episode?

One thing we know for sure is that the finale episode of the third season of “Ted Lasso,” will expand on the basic premise which follows the newly-promoted AFC Richmond as they face ridicule as media predictions widely peg them as last in the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the “wonder kid,” has gone to work for Rupert (Anthony Head) at West Ham United.

In the wake of Nate’s contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt).  Meanwhile, while Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home. Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert, and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates to being the boss of her own PR agency.

Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway. Moreover, as of May 3, 2023, the season has only premiered 8 episodes out of 12, so speculating the plot for the finale this early is all guesswork, so we ask the fans to be patient and also check out the official guide to understand the chronology of the season so far with reference to the upcoming episodes before the finale, which are as follows:

Ted Lasso Season 3 Cast and Crew

The main cast members of Ted Lasso are as follows: Jason Sudeikis as 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 award-winning Apple Original comedy also stars Hannah Waddingham, Jeremy Swift, Phil Dunster, Brett Goldstein, Brendan Hunt, Nick Mohammed, Anthony Head, Toheeb Jimoh, Cristo Fernández, Kola Bokinni, Billy Harris, James Lance, and Juno Temple.

Sudeikis also serves as executive producer, alongside Bill Lawrence via his Doozer Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television and Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content. Brendan Hunt, Joe Kelly, and Bill Wrubel also serve as executive producers, along with Doozer’s Jeff Ingold and Liza Katzer. Jane Becker and Jamie Lee also serve as executive producers. Star Brett Goldstein serves as writer and co-executive producer. The series was developed by Sudeikis, Lawrence, Joe Kelly, and Brendan Hunt, and is based on the preexisting format and characters from NBC Sports.

Ted Lasso Season 4: Is it renewed or not?

Unfortunately, it seems unlikely to happen since there was only a three-season plan established from the start!

We can affirm to the fans that the network has also not made any comments about the fourth season. Yes, we acknowledge it’s some unfortunate news, but the third season was always intended to be the show’s last because executive producer and star Jason Sudeikis and a number of other people were preoccupied with trying to wrap up the current plot.

Nearly everyone involved has been implying for months that “Lasso” would end after these shows.

Star Brett Goldstein was cautious with his words in a Variety podcast from last July. At the moment, he explained, “It’s written as, in the story we have been telling will reach a conclusion,” he said at the time. Further adding, “And that’s how it was always planned. That doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t continue. But it’s a kind of three-act conclusion to this story.”

Sudeikis also stated, quoting, “The rewrites were the same as we’ve always done,” he says. “If anything, the endeavor took as long as it did because of just how dense the stories are. … And so while we’re flattered by the curiosity of ‘Is this the final season,’ the fact is that content-wise if you just go by running time, this season has a Season 4 within itself.”

Moreover, the press was told not to inquire about Season 4 at the “Ted Lasso,” premiere because publicists emphasized that no choice had been made.

On the other hand, if fans are hoping for a fourth season, Sudeikis says, they should “believe,” in Ted’s words. “It will always be dictated by the stories.” So, it makes it probable that the third season of this franchise will be the last. We would also like to draw attention to the fact that Apple TV+ has not yet announced that this is the concluding season.

On the other hand, some cast members have discussed potential spin-offs, so there’s a chance we might still see them—just maybe not in Ted Lasso. Then there’s Brett Goldstein, who has a crazy theory about what might occur next.

“The problem is that in Season 3, five of the main characters die, so my plan for Season 4 is Ted comes back as a ghost, and it’s called ‘Ghost Ted.’ He’s haunting the corridors, but he’s just trying to inspire,” he told Variety. “Some people don’t believe in ghosts, and that’s the journey the team goes on is eventually believing in ghosts… Jason says he’s only thinking about it.”

Right now, we urge the viewers to stream all the episodes which are available exclusively on Apple TV+ and on the Apple TV app, which offers a selection of membership tiers. Moreover, the first and second seasons of Ted Lasso are also available on the platform. Apple TV+ offers premium, compelling drama and comedy series, feature films, groundbreaking documentaries, and kids and family entertainment, and is available to watch across all your favorite screens.
