The first trailer for Season 3 of Ted Lasso just dropped and it features all of the familiar faces back in the AFC Richmond locker room.
Spoiler alert for anyone who hasn’t watched Season 2 of Ted Lasso yet, but AFC Richmond is headed back to the Premier League. Season 2 finished with the Richmond Greyhounds being promoted out of the Championship (Tier 2 in England) and they’ll now be facing the best teams in England once again.
The first teaser trailer for Season 3 of Ted Lasso features Ted, Higgins, Roy, Rebecca, Danny Rojas, and others making their own ‘Believe’ signs to hang above their lockers. The music in the teaser is “I Still Believe” by Frank Turner, which is a perfect track for this teaser.

The big news from the Ted Lasso Season 3 teaser trailer is the release date. Season 3 will hit Apple+ on March 15th, just one month away. Episodes will be released on Apple+ weekly.
Here is the synopsis Apple+ has written up for this teaser trailer:
“In this third season of Ted Lasso, the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces ridicule as media predictions widely peg them as last in the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the “wonder kid,” has gone to work for Rupert (Anthony Head) at West Ham United.
In the wake of Nate’s contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt). Meanwhile, while Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates being the boss of her own PR agency. Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway.”
There are a lot of moving parts in Season 3. Ted and Coach Beard will be focused entirely on AFC Richmond’s success after gaining promotion to the Premier League once again.
Remaining in the PL will require a flurry of spending an influx of new talent. That’s assuming the showrunners depict it accurately. So we should expect to see some new faces on the Greyhounds squad this season.
West Ham United is not a real threat in the actual Premier League. They currently sit in 16th place out of 20 teams. But Ted Lasso could depict them as a bigger threat than they actually are. It remains to be seen.
