In Ted Lasso Season 3: 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, now hailed as the “wonder kid,” has gone to work for Rupert at West Ham United.

Ted Lasso season 3 is said to mark the end of the series after this season, although some are pointing to the possibility of a spin-off of the show. While the show is still on top of its game, continuing to prove it is clever, smart, funny, and full of heart, this season also touches on a bit of personal growth, which is displayed in episode 4 of the new season. Last season was rough for fans of Ted, as we witnessed the normally cheery and optimistic coach begin to mentally nosedive, even enlisting in seeing a counselor about his mental state. However, this season, we see Ted being Ted, which is why he is so well received and loved by viewers. Last season left off with Nate managing Rupert’s team, having gone over to the dark side, and while Ted could easily throw jabs at his former coaching assistant, which would be well-deserved, he always keeps it classy, doing what is best for his players, coworkers, and fans.
Ted Lasso season 3 doesn’t just show personal growth for Ted but for the rest of the cast, especially Jamie Tartt, who we have seen slowly make his way as being one of the leaders of the team and even showing moments in the new season of being a level-headed individual amongst the group. Tartt does have an interesting plot this season, when newcomer Maximilian Osinsk, who plays Zava, emerges as a superstar on the field and someone Jamie wants to be better than. New seasons always get a breath of fresh air from its new characters, and Zava is a character that not only brings a massive number of laughs but is also a player that brings out the competitiveness in the rest of the team. While Nate is no longer with the team, Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) and Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) continue to help out Ted and play major roles in the show. Goldstein’s grumpy Roy Kent is one of those characters you can’t help but love, even when he makes relationship decisions you may not agree with this season.
As far as the ladies in Ted Lasso season 3, they all have interesting story arcs that point to the end of the season for some. Rebecca continues to seethe with anger towards her ex, Rupert, as he attempts to secure the signing of the prodigy Zava and uses Nate to put down her team to the press. Keeley and Kent have a subplot concerning their relationship as she strikes out at a new company, even bringing in a friend to learn what she does and apprentice under her.
Ted Lasso Season 3 remains one of the best shows, especially comedies, out there. For a show this great to bow out after three seasons would be criminal. I understand wanting to stay relevant and fresh, and that’s the reason why many shows end seemingly prematurely, I’m sure, but with Ted Lasso, they could easily run another 3 seasons and not even come close to jumping the shark. Since no one knows definitively if this is the end for Ted and the gang, fans might as well take it all in, as it might be the end, and savor every minute as long as they can.
