Season three's 12 episodes will continue to follow the fortunes of AFC Richmond after their promotion to the Premier League under coach Ted played by Jason Sudeikis.

The ensemble cast also features Hannah Waddingham as the owner of the football club, Nick Mohammad as Ted's assistant manager turned traitor Nate, Brett Goldstein as a player turned coach based on Roy Keane and Juno Temple as the club's PR manager.

The second season of Ted Lasso became the most successful comedy in Emmy's history, winning four awards at last year's ceremony including one for Outstanding Comedy Series which it had already won the year before.

In picking up back to back Outstanding Comedy Series wins, Ted Lasso joined the small group of sitcoms to win the award in their first two seasons. Other shows to achieve the feat include Frasier, Modern Family and 30 Rock.

The series is originally based on a series of commercials Sudeikis starred in for NBC in 2013 where he appeared as the head coach of Tottenham Hotspur.

The first two seasons of Ted Lasson can currently be streamed on AppleTV+.
