In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he shared his reflections on the final day of filming for season 3 of Ted Lasso and said, "I mean, it was lovely. It was a scene in the locker room, and then everybody piled in there, it was jam-packed, which our COVID team was very anxious about, understandably. But, yeah, lot of tears, lot of cheers, lot of clapping. It felt like an actual sports team after their final game, but without really knowing if we'd won or lost, which as Ted says is really not the most important thing, so in many ways we won. There was just this feeling, like a call to arms, to take whatever we made here, and however we made it there, to bring that to wherever any of us go next."
Jason Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt, and Joe Kelly created Ted Lasso, based on Sudeikis' character from NBC Sports' coverage of the English Premier League. The first season, comprising 10 episodes, premiered on Apple TV+ in August 2020, and its popularity soared. The second season, with 12 episodes, was released in July 2021 and was also widely acclaimed. The show's relatable and lovable characters, intelligent writing, and positive themes of perseverance and optimism are some reasons for its success. The third season of Ted Lasso premiered on Apple TV on March 15, 2023.
