Jason Sudeikis’ “Ted Lasso” Renewed For Season 2

Jason Sudeikis in "Ted Lasso"

Ted Lasso has been renewed for a second season on Apple.

The series premiered less than a week ago on the streamer, with the first three episodes released at that time. The fourth episode is set for Friday.

Like the first season, the second season will have 10 episodes, and it’s supposed to debut next year.

Jason Sudeikis executive produced, co-wrote, and stars in the series as Lasso, a small-time college football coach from Kansas who’s hired to coach a professional soccer team in England, even though he has never coached soccer. Hannah Waddingham stars as the team owner.

The Ted Lasso character is based on Sudeikis’ character from the NBC Sports video in 2013 to support the fact that NBC Sports was broadcasting English Premier League games. The character was such a success, that he was brought back the following year as an analyst.
