Ted Lasso’s Cristo Fernández hinted fans will be seeing the AFC Richmond squad on our screens very soon – and we’re absolutely here for it!
In March, actor Jason Sudeikis – who stars as the titular lead – was pictured filming scenes for the upcoming season alongside co-stars Brett Goldstein (Roy Kent) and Phil Dunster. (Jamie Tartt).
Cristo – who plays striker Dani Rojas on the hit show – revealed the cast have been filming for the past few months, before gushing over the new scripts – which are ‘so good.’
‘We’ve been shooting for the last two months, things are going well, and I’m hopeful,’ he said.
‘Hopefully, the fans will love our Season 3, which, hopefully, will be at the end of the year as well, out,’ he added to Pop Culture.
The series follows Lasso, an American sports coach who is hired to train an English soccer team in an attempt by its owner to spite her ex-husband.
Lasso tries to win over the sceptical English market with his folksy, optimistic demeanour while dealing with his lack of football experience.
But in the end, he manages to win the players over with his charm.
Late last year, the We’re The Millers star remained tight-lipped over what lies ahead, when quizzed over whether season three could be its last.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Jason said: ‘I feel like a real coach when I have to tell folks you can’t look at season four when we’re in the middle of season three.
‘We can’t worry about the championships when we’re in the first round of playoffs, you know.
‘We got to take it one game at a time,’ he added.
‘As cliche as that may sound, there’s actually truth. It’s hard to think about what to do in the distant future when you’re trying to deal with what’s right in front of you.’
Ted Lasso took home four major gongs at the 27th annual Critics Choice Awards, including best comedy series.
Ted Lasso seasons 1-2 can be streamed in full now on Apple TV.
