Ted Lasso season 2 production continues

Meanwhile, in an interview with Deadline today, Ted Lasso co-creator Bill Lawrence offered his thoughts on the nominations:

Lawrence said that it has been ‘a really cool experience’ to see the show receive so much love. At the same time, though, he feels that ‘caring about awards’ is antithetical to the very nature of Ted Lasso. ‘So, it feels disingenuous to make too big a deal out of all this,’ he added, ‘except to say that we’re grateful, and it’s always cool to be lumped together with a bunch of other good shows.’

Previously, Lawrence had said that Ted Lasso might only run for the three seasons, but he’s a bit more coy in today’s interview:

‘We have no idea how long the show is going to last now, except I bet much like Ted himself, we’ll keep doing it as long as it’s fun,’ he said. ‘I said jokingly to somebody else, “You’ll know the show’s over if Ted ever suddenly enjoys a glass of British tea.”’

Finally, Deadline also adds that Ted Lasso is around “a third of the way through production” of season two in London. There’s still no word on a release for the second season, though.

If you haven’t checked out Ted Lasso yet, you can do so now on Apple TV+ where the entire first season is available to watch.
