Season 3 of Ted Lasso is out now and available to stream on Apple TV+.
A third season of Ted Lasso was commissioned prior to the production of Season 2 and was announced in October 2020.
Now, be warned, there are spoilers ahead...
What is Ted Lasso season 3 about?
The ending of the second season definitely paved the way for a next chapter in the story, with the character of Nate defecting from AFC Richmond to work as a coach at West Ham, which had just been bought by Rebecca Walton's ex-husband.
Tensions are sure to rise between AFC Richmond and West Ham in the next instalment of the series, with Ted having to deal with Nate's turning to the dark side and working for "the enemy".
The series two finale also included a potential cliffhanger with Keeley and Roy's romance heading into unknown territory, after Keeley turned down Roy's offer to go on a six-week holiday and prompting him to question their future together.
It's been revealed that the newly-promoted AFC Richmond face ridicule as media predictions widely peg them as favourites to finish last in the Premier League, which means that the pressure is heaped on Ted from the start.
In the third season, AFC Richmond will also don Nike gear, with the sportswear giant teaming up with the Greyhounds. Nike replaces 'Verani', a fictional sports brand. You can read more about Ted Lasso kits and merchandise here.

The main cast of Ted Lasso return for the third season.
Sudeikis has long implied that the third season of the series could be the last, telling Entertainment Weekly: "The story that's being told—that three-season arc—is one that I see, know, and understood. I'm glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don't know."
Later, as season three approached, Sudeikis admitted there was space for spin-offs, telling Deadline: "I think that we’ve set the table for all sorts of folks…to get to watch the further telling of these stories.
"I can’t help but take the question as flattery for what all of us who worked on the show have tried to do. It’s really kind of folks to even consider that because you never know what’s gonna happen when you make things. The fact that people want more, even if it’s a different avenue, is lovely."
