Ted Lasso Season 4 Would Be A New Story Says Creator

If there is a Ted Lasso season four, it will be a brand new story featuring characters other than Roy, Keeley, Nate, and the rest of AFC Richmond.

If there were to be a fourth season of the Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso, it would feature an entirely new story, according to showrunner Bill Lawrence. The sports comedy, starring Jason Sudeikis as the titular character, wrapped up its second season on October 8th with an episode that left the fates of characters Roy (Brett Goldstein), Keely (Juno Temple), and Nate (Nick Mohammed) especially up in the air. The Emmy-winning series has become a hit for Apple and became the most-nominated freshman comedy with 20 total Emmy nominations. This success has garnered talk about just how long the series will go on, since Ted Lasso was renewed for a third season back in October 2020.

With the exception of major streaming shows like award regulars, The Handmaid’s Tale and The Crown, it is quite rare for a streaming show to survive past its first two seasons. The production costs go up, the talent gets more expensive (Sudeikis will earn a whopping one million per episode next season), and a drop in ratings all contribute to streaming shows being canceled prematurely. Lawrence stated that Ted Lasso was planned for a three-season arc. Storylines like Nate’s descent and Roy and Keely’s relationship were mapped out over the seasons from the beginning. In the next season of Ted Lasso, these storylines will soon be resolved.

Lawrence spoke in an interview with THR, saying that regardless of whether or not the show continues past the next season, the stories of Nate, Roy, Keely, and the rest of the AFC Richmond supporting cast will end with season three. Lawrence isn’t opposed to the possibility of more seasons, but he and the writing staff have a definitive end for these characters’ journeys. If the show continues on, Lawrence will likely be a part of it, but it would tell a new story with new characters. Lawrence’s statement from the interview is below:

“[W]hen we started, we plotted out everybody’s beginning, middle and end of a three-season arc. This story is going to be over next year, regardless, even if the show finds another story to tell and goes on.

The future of Ted Lasso truly rests on the decision of its star, who received an Emmy for his portrayal of Ted. Lawrence continued explaining that the show will only continue if Sudeikis wants it to. He cited Sudeikis’ personal responsibilities as a father (like Ted, Sudeikis is also trying to parent from London) as a potential reason for making the next season the last one. If the show does continue, Lawrence would consider continuing Ted’s story with a different supporting cast. However, he emphasizes that it’s Sudeikis’ character and ultimately his decision (which is expected to come in a “timely matter”) that will determine the show’s future.

Should Sudeikis decide to continue the show, a fourth season might see Ted return to Kansas to be with his son or potentially try to mend his relationship with his ex-wife. A version of the show without Ted will likely not be as well-received. If Sudeikis is done and Apple TV+ wants to continue with the franchise, a spin off starring one of the many exciting supporting characters like Sam Obisayna would likely be their best bet. Ted Lasso is expected to return in Summer 2022.
