Ted Lasso with Jason Sudeikis, Cristo Fernandez, and Brandon Hunt
Ted Lasso is one of the most feel-good streaming series that premiered in the middle of the pandemic on Apple TV+. The series came in a moment of time that audiences needed something uplifting, funny, and puts a smile on their faces episode after episode.
It’s no surprise that Apple TV+ forged ahead with season two starring Jason Sudeikis as a the folksy American football coach hired to lead a British soccer team without knowing the sport or culture.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ted Lasso:
Jason Sudeikis is Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team—despite having no experience. But what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, underdog determination—and biscuits. The widely acclaimed series also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster, and Nick Mohammed. Sarah Niles joins the cast this season as Sharon, a sports psychologist who has been brought in to work with AFC Richmond.
