There’s no doubt about it: Apple TV+ has a comedy series Ted Lasso gold in hands. The story of the American Football coach in England is doing very well, but where is that third season anyway?
The answer to that question seems to be thanks to the website Puck to come to light. In short, there are several factors that seem to cause delays.
Why Apple TV+ fans are having to wait a long time for Ted Lasso
The first two seasons of Ted Lasso have achieved great success. The series on Apple TV+ ensures that consumers are slowly but surely moving towards Apple’s streaming service. Not surprising, because the series knows at a large award ceremony as the Emmy’s grab a lot of attention. Does it cause stress?
According to the website Puck seems to be the case. Creator, as well as protagonist, Jason Sudeikis seems to be one of the reasons behind the delay. Since September 2021, the American has been working on the twelve episodes of the third season, but his perfectionism prevents the completion. For example, in April this year it became clear that the story of many episodes has been completely rewritten to do better justice to certain characters.
Since its launch, Apple has insisted that Apple TV+ is fully focused on quality. Sudeikis’ perfectionism will probably improve the result, although that also depends on two other aspects.
The Russians and money
The absence of a third Ted LassoSeason also has to do with money. Apple TV+ and Warner Bros, the company that produces the series, do not seem to agree on the cost. Sources familiar with the situation see differences of opinion between the two parties about the cost. It is reported that in certain areas it is not clear who should bear the costs.
The third reason has to do with the war in Ukraine. That’s how it was meant to be Ted Lasso this season would be recorded in the stadium of Chelsea Football Club. Only this stadium is temporarily closed, because the Russian owners had to pack their things because of the war. For example, the production team has to completely recreate this iconic building in CGI. Possible, but a very time consuming job.
