Ted Lasso Season 3 trailer: dark times ahead for AFC Richmond

The trailer for Ted Lasso season 3 hints at dark days to come for AFC Richmond and their beloved American coach.

Apple TV Plus’ biggest breakout series, Ted Lasso, is gearing up for its third (and possibly final) season with our first full season three trailer. Scored by The Rolling Stones’ classic “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” the trailer, which has barely any dialogue, strikes a foreboding note with much of it focusing on Nick Mohammed’s Nathan Shelley as he goes to work as a coach for a rival team. This follows his major season 2 arc that saw the character pivot from being a lovable underdog to a full-fledged bully and villain, with him resenting the fact that Jason Sudeikis’ Lasso turned his focus elsewhere, leaving him feeling abandoned. The character, whose hair color seemed to reflect his turn to the dark side somewhat, has gone fully grey in the new season but broods a lot in the trailer, making it seem like perhaps he regrets his turn and new gig.

Here’s the official synopsis from Apple TV+:

In the 12-episode third season of “Ted Lasso,” the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces 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 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.

While Ted Lasso has been a critical darling, winning best comedy series and best lead actor Emmys for each of its two seasons, the buzz from co-creator/ co-star Brett Goldstein (who won a best supporting actor in a comedy series Emmy himself) is that the show was always designed for a three-season run, and this may well be the end (although Apple hasn’t confirmed this). Ted Lasso was a show that brightened a lot of people’s lives when it premiered at the height of the pandemic in 2020. While the discourse around season 2 was at times exhausting (literally every episode seemed to generate a litany of think pieces), it’s still well-loved by critics and fans alike. If this is the end of the road for Ted Lasso, hopefully, it ends on a high note, as it really is a great little show.
