The final whistle on Ted Lasso hasn’t gone out yet — but the plan has always been for the hit Apple series to wrap up its story after only three seasons.
With only one season to go on that opening pitch, series creator Bill Lawrence has opened up about Hollywood Reporter About the prospects of the show potentially sticking.
Lawrence said, “When we started, we plotted the beginning, middle, and end of a three-season arc. That story is going to end next year, even if the show gets one more story to tell and move on.” Go.”
That decision, it seems, rests on the shoulders of the series’ lead — and lead writer — Jason Sudeikis.
“I would love for the show to continue. But it will only go on till [Sudeikis] It seems like it’s a good thing for him, not only creatively and professionally, but personally,” Lawrence revealed.
For now, Scrubs and Cougar Town makers are resisting the urge to think too far ahead. The third season will wrap up the arc that has been drawn since the beginning of the show. But nothing is off the table — including spinoffs.
“I don’t think anything is off, but just out of respect, we’re going to wait,” Lawrence said. “None of us are worried about Jason doing what he wants to do. And when he does, we’ll start talking about all those things.”
