“The Ted Lasso welcome wagon has arrived!”
Apple TV+ has released what it calls the “official” trailer for Season 2 of Ted Lasso, its soccer comedy starring Jason Sudeikis. The streamer unveiled a first trailer in April, along with the July 23 premiere date.
The series stars Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from Kansas hired to lead a pro soccer team in England despite having no experience coaching the sport. In the new season — which Apple notes is “more exciting than Higgins at an open-mic jazz club” — the Lasso-coached AFC Richmond meets their skipper’s angry, table-tipping alter ego Led Tasso as they work through relegation from the Premier League.
Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick Mohammed co-star in Ted Lasso, with Sarah Niles joining the Season 2 cast as a regular.
