One thing to know today
We still believe.
Overland Park native Jason Sudeikis is back as beloved soccer coach Ted Lasso.
AppleTV+ this week released a roughly minute-long trailer previewing season three of the hit show, which premieres on the streaming app on March 15.
As AppleTV+ describes it, this season will follow newly promoted AFC Richmond as they struggle to compete in the Premier League, the top tier of English football.
Meanwhile, Ted “deals with the pressures at work” and “continues to struggle with his personal issues at home” in America.
The show catapulted Sudeikis to international stardom and earned him two Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series.
Sudeikis is also an executive producer on the show, which has become one of the Apple streaming service’s most popular original series.
The new season will be 12 episodes long and episodes will debut weekly on Wednesdays instead of Fridays like in previous seasons.
