Bill Lawrence has been beating this drum since season 1 so that people aren't disappointed. Three seasons is all they had in mind and Sudekis living abroad (away from his family) is a big factor in that decision.

Ted Lasso season 3 delayed likely until next year due to script changes.

Apple and Warner probably hand delivered a bucket of cash to kindly suggest some tweaks to the ending

There is just no way in hell this show will end after 3 seasons.

It’s just now hitting its groove as a major player in the culture, globally.

Pay them whatever they want.

Agreed and fair enough, but if they are going to exoand it and were really seeing a 3-season arc, name it as 5 seasons now and aim for it. I can't see a 3-season story getting pulled much further than that, even with new, excellent ideas.

I gotta imagine it is tough for Sudeikis because of having to be in the UK for long periods. I could see him wanting it to end because of not being close to home.

Which has a certain behind-the-scenes "art imitates life" feel to it, you know.

Yep. And S2 was not nearly as good as S1.

We just started it, so I don't know, but a friend I know says the second season is some of the best television he's ever seen.

I have liked them all. Thought both seasons were real strong.

LOL that is sort of amazing. I wonder if a cross-over like this has ever happened before?

They're lucky that Apple is letting them re-use all the CGI work that was already completed for Roy Kent.

Does this game have announcers/commentators? If so, they should do a Roy Kent track. I would buy that.

It would completely change the game’s ESRB and PEGI ratings.

Took forever to finally finish up the two seasons of this show but finished it tonight. I love the show a lot.

Also definitely agree with the sentiments about Nate. He becomes a total douchebag basically out of nowhere. Ted did so much for him and he suddenly hates him because he wasn’t the number one guy anymore? He was still on the coaching staff which he wouldn’t have even had the confidence to attempt let alone a chance at if not for Ted.

Yeah it was stupid. A heel turn for the sake of drama, not internal logic. One of the main reasons I was pretty disappointed in Season 2 after loving Season 1.

Rarely have I seen a TV episode with so many laughs and such perfect heartbreaking drama pulled off over the course of 45 minutes.

Easily the best episode of the season and maybe the series, in my humble opinion.
You have a good eye, Copper! That episode won M.J. Delaney an Emmy for Best Direction - Comedy and was also the the episode Jason Sudakis submitted in the Best Actor - Comedy category that he won for the second year in a row

I mean, Nate had some dickhead qualities right from the beginning so I didn’t think it was that far out of left field.
