'Ted Lasso' Season 2: Air time, how to watch and all about Apple TV+ comedy series
Season 2 of 'Ted Lasso' will see Ted trying his best to take his team to the top by trying everything and anything
‘Ted Lasso’ was undoubtedly one of the best shows last year. At a time, when the entire world was going through so much due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show turned out to be a ray of sunshine for many and gave them the much-needed laughter in their lives. The show chronicles the journey of Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis), an American soccer coach from Kansas who gets hired to manage AFC Richmond after he led the Wichita State Shockers to a Division II National Collegiate Athletic Association championship.
The coach is given the job to lead the side to the top of the premier league table. However, there is a hidden agenda of ruining the team and he is unaware of things that have been happening in and around the team.
The first season turned out to be a huge success and garnered universal acclaim. Apart from acclaim, it also received numerous awards and nominations at various award ceremonies. Sudeikis received the Best Actor in a Comedy Series at Critics’ Choice Television Awards, Golden Globes, and SAG Awards. Meanwhile, the series won a Peabody Award in the Entertainment category.
Fans would be hoping for another successful run with the upcoming season and can’t wait to see what Ted Lasso does to take his team to the top.
Here’s everything we know about ‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2.
Season 2 of ‘Ted Lasso’ will be premiering exclusively on Apple TV+ on Friday, July 23.

Showrunner Bill Lawrence has confirmed that Season 2 will not address the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, the team will struggle to adjust to their lower league status, with Ted focusing the team’s attention toward leaving behind their losing streak. The trailers show that Roy Kent and Keeley (Juno Temple) are developing a relationship. Jamie Tartt will be an important figure as the season progresses – especially because AFC Richmond, inexplicably has made it all that far to Wembley to play Tartt’s Manchester City.
All the original cast members are coming back for Season 2. Jason Sudeikis will be back as Ted Lasso. Sudeikis began his career in improv comedy and was later hired as a writer for ‘Saturday Night Live’ and starred as a cast member from 2005 to 2013, playing Joe Biden, Mitt Romney, and others. He is also known for his leading film roles in the comedies ‘Horrible Bosses’, ‘The Campaign’ and ‘We’re the Millers’. Apart from acting in movies and TV shows, Sudeikis has also been actively participating in theatre productions.
Hannah Waddingham will be reprising the role of Rebecca Walton. The English actress started her acting career by being a part of various theatre productions such as ‘Spamalot’, ‘A Little Night Music’ and ‘Kiss Me, Kate’. For all the aforementioned titles, she received nominations at the Laurence Oliver Awards. Waddingham has been a part of projects like ‘Bad Education’, ‘Game of Thrones’, ‘Sex Education’, and ‘Les Miserables’ during her career.
