We’re ready to “believe in BELIEVE” again.
Award-winning Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso returned for season two on July 23, after receiving a whopping 20 Emmy Award nominations. Fans were more than eager to see their favorite hopeful British soccer (or football, as it’s referred to internationally) coach, played by Jason Sudeikis, back on the AFC Richmond field once again. Now, audiences are cheering on the whole Ted Lasso team IRL during the 2021 Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 19.
Ted Lasso season two debuted a new crop of problems for Ted, team owner Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) and players Dani Rojas (Cristo Fernández), Jamie Tartt (Phil Dunster) and Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein). Thankfully, Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt) and Nate (Nick Mohammed) are there to make sure Ted keeps his cool under pressure.
“For those people who think it’s about football, I think we all know it’s very much not about football,” Waddingham exclusively told E! News about why Ted Lasso is special, following her Emmy nod for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series on July 13. “It’s about the beautiful game of people in each other’s lives more than anything.”
