Well, that was fast. Apple has already empowered people who believe a Ted Lasso should or could happen, and it did it with a single tweet.
Earlier today (June 6), less than a week after Ted Lasso’s season 3 finale aired, Apple TV posted a photo of Beard (Brendan Hunt), Roy (Brett Goldstein), and Nate (Nick Mohammed) from that episode to its Twitter account. . Donning fresh Richmond zips, the trio stare and smile — at the “trust” sign bundled together.
the tweet It has only three words: “Smells like potential.” Which certainly sounds like what you’d say about the show you want to produce.
And at that moment, the minds and hearts of Ted Lasso fans raced again, as everyone still asked “Will Ted Lasso Season 4 happen?” For its part, Apple has been completely quiet about what comes next at AFC Richmond.
So far, only one member has responded to this tweet. Nick Muhammad, Nate himself, tweet quote Apple TV flyer with facial emoji pressed into mouth.
Of course, these are just tweets, and we can’t read much into them. But if your brain is spinning, know that you are not alone. What, exactly, could Apple be teasing? Here’s what we think (and we thought well before Apple’s tweet).
Analysis: The Richmond Method is part of the Ted Lasso we “believe” in
After the finale, Ted’s story is complete (for the time being). It began with his journey to accept a job in England, where he struggled to manage anxiety and the end of his marriage. In the end, Ted finds himself in the UK thanks to therapy, camaraderie and “beautiful sport”.
As all the people behind the show have said, Ted Lasso is built for three seasons. Admittedly, the third was a bit bloated in its runtimes, and suffered from weak subplots (Zava and Jade, thank you for your service, but you deserve better).
However, we already know life at AFC Richmond is going to take off. First, the Season 3 finale (and photo on Twitter) shows Roy, Bird, and Nate continuing to train the Greyhounds and try to win the Premier League title. Meanwhile, Kelly (Juno Temple) and Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) are involved in the women’s team in Richmond (“KJBR Joint”, where she works with Barbara now).
So this is material for at least one new show, especially when you remember that Roy began therapy with Dr. Sharon Fieldstone (Sarah Niles). Plus, you still have the leftover mess of Roy and Jamie (Phil Dunster) telling Keeley to choose between one of them.
If this sounds like Ted Lasso without the Ted Lasso, you’re not wrong. That’s why we call it Richmond Road – the title of the book written by Trent Cream (James Lance) about Lasso’s time in Richmond. To quote another show that had a third season this spring: That’s the way it is (and it makes sense to me).
