Plot Synopsis

Created and executive produced by Bill Lawrence and series star Jason Sudeikis, TED LASSO is a half-hour comedy series that centers on Ted Lasso, an American football coach from small-time program in Kansas, who is hired by a wealthy divorcee to coach the professional English soccer team AFC Richmond, despite having no experience coaching soccer. On Ted's first day, the fans aren't happy and he makes little headway, but he remains optimistic as the team plays its first match. TED LASSO is based on a pre-existing format and characters from a series of NBC Sports' commercials for the English Premier League, starting in 2013. On Friday, August 14, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Apple TV+ released the first three episodes of TED LASSO. A new episode debuts each subsequent Friday through October 2.

The 12-episode second season of TED LASSO dropped on Friday, July 23, 2021, as Apple TV+ released the first episode of the new season. In the season opener, "Goodbye Earl," AFC Richmond brings in a sports psychologist to help the team overcome their unprecedented seven game tie-streak. A new episode debuts each Friday thereafter.
On Friday, October 9, 2021, "Inverting the Pyramid of Success," the Season 2 finale of TED LASSO, dropped on Apple TV+. Richmond gets their final chance to win promotion as Ted deals with the fallout of Trent Crimm's painfully honest expose.

TED LASSO was renewed for a third season in October 2020.
