In the sports comedy-drama, Sudeikis plays Ted Lasso, a college football coach from Kansas City who is unexpectedly hired to coach the fictional Premier League soccer team AFC Richmond, despite the fact he has no prior experience coaching soccer.
The show was met with rave reviews from critics and was nominated for 20 Emmy Awards, setting a record for the most nominations that a freshman series had ever received.
Sudeikis took home the prize for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, while Hannah Waddingham — who plays the team owner — won for Supporting Actress.

Although details on the upcoming season are sparse, producer Bill Lawrence previously revealed to Deadline that two characters who had appeared to exit the show at the end of season two would be back for significant parts in the upcoming season.
Sarah Niles, who joined the series as the team psychologist Dr. Sharon Fieldstone, is expected to continue her sometimes-antagonistic relationship with Coach Lasso, while the reporter Trent Crimm (James Lance) will also be back for more.
The show’s third season was first announced in October 2020, prior to the start of filming on season two.
