Ted Lasso has swept through previous award shows, including wins at the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, and Screen Actors Guild Awards. It also currently holds eight nominations for the first annual Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards.
Based on the parody NBC characters created by Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt (Coach Beard), Ted Lasso follows the overly optimistic football coach, Lasso, as he moves to England to coach a Premier League soccer team. With no experience under his belt, Lasso fumbles more often than not learning the ins-and-out of not only a new sport but an entirely new culture, but he doesn’t let that stop him.
The series proved that optimistic characters and feel-good underdog stories can be captivating and interesting. However, more importantly it proved that they can sell if they’re done right. And this one is done perfectly.
Season 2 has already been met with critical acclaim, boasting an impressive 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is no easy feat. Season 2 features 12 episodes, two additional from the original season 1 order, and has already been renewed by Apple TV+ for a third season.
The Emmy awards will air on Sunday, September 19. Cedric the Entertainer will host the show that airs on CBS at 8 p.m. EST.
All 10 episodes of Ted Lasso season 1 are available to watch on Apple TV+.
