‘Ted Lasso’ stars prepare to say goodbye as Apple series films final episodes of third and possibly final season – Deadline


Written by admin



The cast of Apple TV+ Ted Lasso are filming season 3 of what is believed to be the final installment of the multi-Emmy award-winning series, and they’re not ready to say goodbye.

Executive producer and star Brett Goldstein revealed last month that the season three finale is being written as a series finale. “That’s how we write,” he told the Sunday Times. It was planned that there would be three of them. This claim has been repeatedly repeated by co-authors Jason Sudeikis, Brendan Hunt, and Bill Lawrence. Lawrence told Deadline in October, “We said this show would only have three seasons.” Apple has not confirmed that the series will end with a third season.

“We’re halfway through filming season 3 and I’d like to take a break because I’m not ready to say goodbye to her in three episodes,” Hannah Waddingham told Deadline Monday night on the channel. Ted Lasso FYC event in Los Angeles.

She added, “Brett and I were talking about [saying goodbye] earlier, and we’re both a bit in denial, but were expecting it, since the word is coming at the same time. It’s like a long, slow mourning. I love her dude. This is a girl, my girl, with whom I walk beside and serve her. I know it sounds dramatic, but that’s how I feel. I can feel her pulsing in my blood and I’m not ready to no longer walk with her.”

Waddingham said she didn’t think executive producer and star Jason Sudeikis, who plays the award-winning football coach, would really end comedy after three successful seasons and neither would fans.

“I thought Jason would be pushed and pushed [to keep going],” she said. “I’m very sad because she brought so much into my life. Jason has too – an immeasurable amount. He changed my life. He changed the way I relate to people.”

Waddingham, who won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2021, was tight-lipped about what’s in store for Rebecca but teased that change was coming.

“When we see Rebecca again, she will be the boss bitch,” Waddingham said proudly. “She’s a 100% boss bitch and then something else. She’s totally there because she wants to be, and there’s been a change in her that I think was very much needed. She leads this group of players and wants the best for them.”

She continued, “As for her personal life, it is, as usual, delightful chaos. This is life, right? You never have everything sorted.

Jimo, who played soccer star Sam Obisanya on the show, has also been tight-lipped about whether Sam and Rebecca will continue dating in the new season.

“I can’t tell you anything about it!” I can’t blab, ”the newly minted Emmy nominee shared with a laugh. “What I can say is that this season we’re going to get a little bit into Sam’s personal life and it’s going to be really interesting for people to see how it all unfolds and where it’s going. You will see what his relationship with Rebecca is like and what it turns into. It will be really interesting no matter which side of the fence you are on, whether you are a TedBecca fan or a SamBecca fan. It will be a really interesting solution for all the characters.”

In the Season 2 finale, Sam finds a business space that he hopes to turn into a Nigerian restaurant, and in turn a space for Nigerian immigrants and other non-native Londoners to feel at home.

“First you find yourself in this country, you find your family in this new country, and then you find your community to start putting down roots in your new home. This is the story of immigrants,” he said. “Now Sam is investing in the business in hopes of attracting people. In Season 2, Sam talks about how he hasn’t eaten real Nigerian food since he came here, so he creates this space for himself, and that’s how he strengthens his bonds. home here. He wants other Nigerians in London to find a restaurant and be there. I really identify with Sam’s story because it’s my story and my parents’ story.”

He added: “Sam will also face challenges trying to run a restaurant. It won’t be smooth. Sam will do something, and his actions will have both good and bad consequences. Not everyone will allow this newcomer to be outspoken in politics. This has consequences and not everyone will react the way Ted and his team did. We’ll see how he fights it and hopefully gets over it.”

Like Waddingham, Jimo is also struggling with leaving the show and a character that has changed the trajectory of his life.

“I feel Sam Explanation in every fiber of my being,” he shared. “I really identify with this character, his role was a dream come true. During this three-season journey, I understood him as a person. Now I could play with him in my sleep. Saying goodbye to him will be extremely difficult. I hope there’s more, man, I really do. There are many more stories to be told. Fingers crossed, we’ll get there. Who knows what it looks like? Can we come back after vacation? I think many tears will be shed when we have to say our last words.”

As for Bockinnie, he teases his character, Captain Isaac McAdoo, who is “trying to figure out what it takes to be a leader” when the series returns. “He deals with responsibility and pressure and tries to take it all in stride,” he said.

He added about saying goodbye to Ted Lasso“I’m getting ready as best I can. I always took this job one day at a time. I enjoy travel. Working on this series helped me grow up a little. When I started Ted Lasso, I was 26 and soon I will be 30. I went from boy to man, like Isaac. I did a great journey with him. I will leave the experience with a new understanding of patience and. the importance of listening. Listening is the key.”
