Many viewers have enjoyed two seasons of Ted Lasso, an Apple TV+ comedy that was first released in August of 2020. As everyone waits in anticipation for season 3 to be released later this year, actress Hannah Waddingham confirmed that there are currently no plans in the works for season 4.

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.

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.

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+!

Stephen King Has Strong Criticism for Manifest’s Writing

In advance of Manifest’s upcoming season 4 revival on Netflix, author Stephen King criticizes the show’s shoddy writing. The supernatural thriller, which Jeff Rake created, debuted on NBC in 2018 and centers on the crew and passengers of a commercial airliner who inexplicably reappeared five and a half years after they vanished and were initially thought to be dead. Manifest‘s cancellation in June 2021, due to dwindling ratings, sparked a passionate fan campaign on social media from people who wished to see the program return and wrap up loose ends. Since then, the show has received a lot of attention.

“It’s All Connected!”

The cast of Manifest

When Netflix decided to renew Manifest for a fourth and final season that will have 20 episodes, fans finally got their dream. Many members of the original cast, including Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Parveen Kaur, Holly Taylor, and Daryl Edwards, will return and reprise their roles. Matt Long’s return as Zeke Landon was initially questionable, but it has since been made clear that he has joined the ensemble. There aren’t many known narrative specifics for Manifest season 4 aside from its returning actors and potential November release date.

Stephen King, a Manifest fanatic and prolific writer, recently expressed his anticipation for the impending season 4 revival on Twitter. The show’s most overused phrases, including “it’s complicated” and “trust me,” should be avoided in the upcoming season, but other than that, King is looking forward to the finale.

Is King Right About Manifest?

King is correct to note that “trust me,” “it’s complicated,” and “it’s all interrelated” are some of the show’s most repeated phrases. King’s constructive critique won’t bother show creator and lead writer Jeff Rake, given that King is one of the most successful writers of all time and maybe the show’s most well-known fan. King participated in the fan effort to preserve Manifest from cancellation last summer and undoubtedly had a tiny impact on the show’s renewal.
