“Ted Lasso” Season 3 Trailer Finds AFC Richmond Facing Off Against a Former Friend

You can’t always get what you want, but sometimes…you know the rest. Set to the deathless Rolling Stones tune, the first official trailer for Ted Lasso season three deliver us a peek at what’s next for AFC Richmond. It also sets up, without a lick of dialogue until the very end, the budding rivalry between coach Lasso (Jason Sudeikis) and his former assistant Nate (Nick Mohammed), who defected from AFC Richmond to go coach West Ham United for the loathsome Rupert (Anthony Head). Nate’s swiftly changing persona from lovable soccer savant into the series villains was one of season two’s surprises. Having being promoted to the Premiere League at the end of season two, AFC Richmond will now be playing against the top dogs, but one imagines it’ll be the battle with West Ham that’ll serve as the new season’s main event.

Season 3 consists of 12 episodes and will track Coach Lasso and the squad as they take on the burden of playing the very best, as well as explore the personal triumphs and agonies of the lovable team’s core group, from Lasso on down through the roster. Luckily, AFC Richmond has some new help on the coaching front, with former star Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) now stepping into the role of assistant coach alongside the always dependable Coach Beard (Brenand Hunt).

Season three will also find Keeley (Juno Temple) charting a new course as the head of the her own PR company and AFC Richmond owner Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham)’s longstanding feud with her ex-husband, Rupert, and one imagines a deeper exploration of the private pain Coach Lasso has buried under all his good cheer and which was revealed in season two.

Returning cast members include Jeremy Swift, Phil Dunster, Toheeb Jimoh, Cristo Fernandez, Kola Bokinni, Billy Harris, and James Lance.

Check out the season 3 trailer below. Ted Lasso returns to Apple TV on March 15.
