After taking Lee trick or treating on Sunday night, we watched the last episode of Season Two of Ted Lasso. Sharon and I finished season one in July.
The series follows Ted Lasso, an American college football coach who is hired to coach an English soccer team in an attempt by its owner to spite her ex-husband. Lasso tries to win over the skeptical English market with his folksy, optimistic demeanor while dealing with his inexperience in the sport.
The first season of 10 episodes premiered on Apple TV+ on August 14, 2020, with three episodes, followed by weekly installments. A second season of 12 episodes premiered on July 23, 2021. In October 2020, the series was renewed for a third season.
I really enjoyed both season one and two. I highly recommend it. As I said after watching the first episode, I was very surprised by the tone of the show and touched by the portrayal of the main character. I am looking forward to season three next year.
