The Hilarious Ted Lasso Returns Friday
Ted Lasso is (almost) back!
Season 2 of Ted Lasso is dropping this Friday, July 23rd. So if you haven’t yet, now is the time to watch Season 1. It’s on Apple TV+, so you may have to pay yet another subscription fee, but it is well worth the price. After all, it just received a ridiculous 20 Emmy nominations.

Ted Lasso is a comedy that achieves that perfect balance of being funny while also making you care about its characters. Lasso, played by Jason Sudeikis, is a college football coach turned pro soccer coach. He is hired by a woman who wants her ex-husband’s club, AFC Richmond, to become a laughing stock. Ted gets thrown into the British culture and the game of soccer. And many awkwardly funny things happen.
Ted is very aware that he has signed up for a daunting task, but he is not afraid to fail. This is why he is such a likable dude.

That is just one of many legendary Lasso quotes from Season 1. Ted has such a refreshingly positive way of both coaching and living life. Everyone who meets Ted falls in love with him and roots for him.
Season 1 was an awesome, mid-Pandemic surprise. Season 2 has a lot of pressure to keep the laughs coming. Some lucky fans have received a sneak preview, including legendary comedian Patton Oswalt:
I was fortunate enough to attend the #TedLasso premiere tonight. Saw the first two episodes. Beyond phenomenal. The stuff they’re setting up is brilliant. Also @hanwaddingham is a superhero. #believe pic.twitter.com/FKM0NmRroD
