Forget hot girl summer. It’s almost Lasso Season (two)!
The second season of Apple TV+’s unlikely hit series, which was based on a commercial, airs on a platform most people don’t have and stars a former SNLer sporting a mustache, premieres on July 23rd. I, for one, can not wait (and I know I’m not alone). Because as unlikely as it is, Ted Lasso is a national treasure.
The show, which is part fish-out-of-water tale and part underdog story is 100% good vibes, and while you may not know many people who’ve watched it, every single person who has is a certified member of the LAsso hive. The show’s affability and charm is as impossible to deny as that of the main character, flawlessly embodied by Jason Sudeikis in an award-winning role.
The new season promises to follow the Richmond Greyhounds as they attempt to bounce back from their first campaign under former football coach turned football gaffer, and the second season’s official trailer promises more of the same heart and hijinks, with a few wrinkles.
It looks like we’ll get to see a different side of Ted as his team struggles again, and the gang is all back — except, perhaps, for lovable curmudgeon Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein), who barely appears in the trailer – if at all (pretty sure I saw him near the end). A vital counterweight to Lasso’s relentless optimism, Kent’s absence could really hurt the show.
We’ll find out for sure what happened to Roy, and what will happen to the rest of the Lasso family, next month. Until then, check out the new trailer. And believe!
