Is the fate of AFC Richmond and its colorful cast of characters hanging in the balance? Continue reading to find out.
It looks like the title of the final episode, “So Long, Farewell,” adeptly reflects on the end of Ted Lasso’s journey with three amazing seasons which first made its debut on August 14, 2020! Yes, you read it right. The end of the road has finally arrived upon the beloved sports comedy-drama television series, which has been entertaining fans around the world for the last three seasons by being a great watch during the pandemic and lifting everyone’s spirit.
If you’ve been keeping up with the show, then we’re sure that you’re wondering if there is a chance for the network or the show creators to extend the series. The question about its renewal has sparked interest once again after the viewers noticed that even though the final ended on a good note, which tied up the overall plot perfectly where AFC Richmond played their final match of the season. There seems to be enough plot left for it to be expanded further, which we don’t doubt either.
After all! There are many fans who would still like Ted Lasso to return because the story can certainly continue especially when the show has quickly earned praise and acclaim with season one becoming the most Emmy-nominated freshman comedy series in history, landing top honors and awards. Ted Lasso Season 4 could be the perfect antidote to the chaos and uncertainty of the world which can be explored further as there have been rumors and speculation about the continuation of the show along with potential spin-offs!
To clear up any doubts about its future plans Sudeikis spoke to Deadline in March ahead of the Season 3 premiere where he certainly mentioned that the third season seems to be the final chapter, quote: “This is the end of this story that we wanted to tell, that we were hoping to tell, that we loved to tell. The fact that folks will want more and are curious beyond more than what they don’t even know yet—that being Season 3—it’s flattering. Maybe by May 31, once all 12 episodes of the season [have been released], they’re like, ‘Man, you know what, we get it, we’re fine. We don’t need anymore, we got it.'”
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.”
Talking about the potential spinoffs, Sudeikis addressed, quote, “Yeah, I think that we’ve set the table for all sorts of folks…to get to watch the further telling of these stories,” he said. “Again, I can’t help but take the question as flattery for what all of us that were working on the show have tried to do. It’s really kind of folks to even consider that because you never know what’s gonna happen when you make things. The fact that people want more, even if it’s a different avenue is lovely.”
While the future of the show beyond its third season remains uncertain, fans can’t help but hope for more heartwarming moments, hilarious antics, and life lessons from the lovable American football coach turned English soccer manager. We would also like to draw attention to the fact that Apple TV+ has not yet announced that this is the concluding season, and the topic of potential spin-offs isn’t off the table either, so right now the fans can simply hope for the best!
Until then, we urge the viewers to stream the latest season to know what has transpired in the show so far.

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 being the boss of her own PR agency.
