Apple has released the first official trailer for Ted Lasso’s upcoming third season, and while it reveals very little about the season’s plot, the trailer focuses entirely on the positive vibes (even if AFC Richmond, the main team in the show, appears to be struggling).
The trailer, set to The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” largely jumps between shots of recognizable characters and locations that will presumably all appear in season 3. One of the two lines of actual dialogue in the trailer features the gruff Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) saying “great job” — Apple is clearly trying to keep the third season a mystery. The preview, however, establishes the now-gray-haired Nate (Nick Mohammed) as a major villain, which isn’t surprising given how he left the team in season 2.
From the trailer’s description, here’s the official season synopsis:
In the third season of “Ted Lasso,” the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces ridicule as media predictions widely peg them to finish 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.
