Apple TV+ sports comedy "Ted Lasso" gets a call for a second season less than a week after the series' premiere.

The series landed on Apple's streaming service on August 14, rolling out the first three episodes. The fourth episode is set to debut on August 21, with new episodes airing every Friday. The second season is set to premiere next year.

The series was developed by Jason Sudeikis, Lawrence, Joe Kelly, and Brendan Hunt, and is based on the pre-existing format and characters from NBC Sports.

The show follows Lasso, a former college football coach, as he shifts from small-time coaching in the United States to coaching a professional soccer team in England — despite having no experience coaching the sport known as "football" in that country.

AppleInsider reviewed "Ted Lasso," citing that while the show's premise was well-thought-out, there doesn't feel like enough content to sustain a whole series.

"Ted Lasso" is only one comedy that has found a home on Apple TV+. It joins workplace-meets-gaming comedy "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet," and will be later joined by murder mystery-comedy series "The Afterparty."
