All About Ted Lasso
The show Ted Lasso follows an American football coach that was hired to train a British soccer team. He was hired by the British team’s owner in an attempt to spite her ex-husband. Lasso tries to win over the team and the English market through sheer determination and optimism, even though he’s inexperienced with soccer and has much to learn about the sport. The show released two critically-acclaimed seasons with the third season still in the works.
What Waddingham Said
Hannah Waddingham portrays Rebecca on the show, and the Emmy-awarded actress recently had an interview about the show. During that exclusive interview, Waddingham confirmed that there weren’t any plans at this time to prolong the series past its third season. Jason Sudeikis, one of the co-creators of the show, mentioned in the past that there was a plan for a three-season arc. Waddingham shared her sadness over the possibility of the show ending, explaining her love for and attachment to the character she portrays on the show.
The Show Achieved Great Success
Waddingham isn’t alone in her love for the character of Rebecca Welton, the AFC Richmond owner. Waddingham won an Emmy in 2021 and was nominated for a second consecutive Emmy on July 12th for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Also nominated in that category are her Ted Lasso co-stars, Sarah Niles, and Juno Temple. The show received 20 nominations for the second consecutive year! If you haven’t seen seasons 1 and 2 of this fun and critically-acclaimed show, it’s easy to do so on Apple TV+!
