‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2

Ted Lasso Season 2 launched on Apple TV+ on Jul 23, 2021 but fans want insights before they start watching the show. The comedy TV-Show produced by Bill Lawrence is back with Jason Sudeikis, Joe Kelly, and Brendan Hunt for another installment.

Where can I watch Ted Lasso?

Ted Lasso is not available on Netflix which is a bummer as it is one of the biggest OTT platform out there. Apparently, the popular series is an Apple TV+ original, so Ted Lasso Season 2 is only available on the Apple TV+ streaming service.

Apple TV is slowly gaining popularity since it’s launch in 2019. It’s definitely not the most popular platform out there but it is growing to be one. You can also download it on non Apple devices. It’s just $4.99 per month for you to binge-watch Ted Lasso Season 1, and then catch up with the next season. You can also check out The Morning Show, Dickinson and Defending Jacob.

When does ‘Ted Lasso” air on Apple TV+ – at what time?

It might not be possible to stay up until midnight on July 22 for Ted Lasso Season 2 for all our viewers.

Ted Lasso Season 2 will drop on Apple TV+ at midnight PST for West Coast viewers. It will not drop on Apple TV+ until 3 AM EST for east coast viewers.

Season 2 of ‘Ted Lasso: How many episodes?

Jason Sudeikis fans are in luck: Ted Lasso Season II has two more episodes than the first season. Ted Lasso Season one had only 10 episodes. Season 2 has 12 total. Apple TV+ renewed the first season in August 2020 after it had a strong debut. Juno Temple let it reveal that the new season would be 12 episodes instead of 10.

Who are the members of the cast for ‘Ted Lasso Season 2’?

Naturally, Jason Sudeikis will be reprising his role as Ted Lasso and Brendan Hunt as Coach Beard. Brett Goldstein returns as Roy Kent, while Nick Mohammed plays Nathan “Nate The Great” Shelley. Ted Lasso Season 2 is more about the women. Season 2’s highlight is the relationship between Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham), and Keeley Jones, (Juno Temple).

Jeremy Swift returns as Leslie Higgins, and Phil Dunster is Jamie Tartt. Toheeb Jimoh reprises his role as Sam Obisanya. Additionally, Cristo Fernandez plays Dani Rojas again. James Lance plays Trent Crimm again, while Kola Bokinni is back as Isaac, Richmond’s vice-captain. Annette Badland completes the Ted Lasso Season 2 cast, playing Mae the pub landlord.

Review

As last year, the supporting characters are given equal attention. Some characters, such as Nate the Great are taken down surprising paths. Some, such as Roy Kent, follow a more direct path — he starts out coaching pre-teen girls and then goes on to become a pundit for primetime TV. He eventually does something that should be extremely satisfying to his fans. Keeley and Rebecca share one of the most interestingly fleshed out dynamics in this season. Let’s just say the Bechdel test was passed without any penalty shootouts.

There’s also room for good-natured politics. Sam Obisanya, a Nigerian player, has a request that is so idealistic that it would be grounds for his immediate termination of the contract. It earns him a lot of praises in Lasso-land. He gets the support from his teammates and a lot of appreciation from the media, including Trent Crimm (The Independent).

Ted Lasso is a role model for everyone. He is not a smug football star who has to learn humility, nor a little boy who is beginning signs of a successful career as a bully. It is also clear that there are no villains, contrary to the very nature of sports-based storytelling. All of the show’s conflicts are internal, just like ours.
