Ted Lasso returned with its highly anticipated third season, and it didn’t disappoint. Jason Sudeikis continues to deliver a tour de force performance as the titular character, Ted Lasso.
Season 3 continues to dominate the streaming landscape, breaking records for viewership on Apple TV+.
The premiere episode of the highly acclaimed series garnered an impressive 870,000 viewers, marking a substantial 60% increase from the Season 2 premiere in the summer of 2021.
Ted Lasso fans want ‘Season 4’
However, despite the overwhelming success of the latest season, the question that looms over fans’ minds is whether these record-breaking numbers will be enough to secure a Season 4 of Ted Lasso (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9).
Originally conceptualized as a three-season arc, the show’s creators had meticulously planned out the storyline with a clear endpoint.
Season 3 Episode 12, titled ‘So Long, Farewell,’ is set to go live on May 31, bringing an end to the current narrative arc.
This has led many die-hard fans to express their desires for at least one more season, hoping the creators will consider extending the series.

Update 1 (May 25, 2023)
09:53 am (IST): After the premiere of the penultimate episode of the season, more fans feel that the show needs more episodes to close all the plots (1, 2, 3).
This feeds the theory that Ted Lasso could continue in the future, but under another name.
Update 2 (May 26, 2023)
04:37 pm (IST): According to fans and reviews, Ted Lasso Season 3 has been a bit patchy in terms of quality, but it has picked up in recent episodes (1, 2, 3).
Update 3 (May 29, 2023)
05:45 pm (IST): Some viewers say (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) that the way the show is going will only serve as a foundation for its future without Ted.
Moreover, there are episodes where Ted was just non-existent and hence, the show without Ted as the main character, won’t be a deal breaker to some.
Update 4 (May 30, 2023)
04:27 pm (IST): There are Ted Lasso fans who believe that Apple TV is preparing something big related to the show because the Ted Lasso stills have not been released.
