Apple TV+ sports comedy "Ted Lasso" gains a third season ahead of its second season start of production.
"Ted Lasso," which made its debut to Apple's streaming service on August 14, was developed by Jason Sudeikis, Lawrence, Joe Kelly, and Brendan Hunt, and is based on the pre-existing format and characters from NBC Sports.
Following its first season's success, the series has been renewed for both a second and third season. Apple had renewed the series in August, less than one week after the series' premiere.

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.
