Producer and star Jason Sudeikis has maintained his starring role as American football coach Ted Lasso will be coming to an end after just three seasons. However, the Apple TV+ show’s skyrocketing popularity has meant fans have demanded the series continue further. Roy Kent star Brett Goldstein is the latest member of the cast to weigh in on the rumours. 

Brett has confirmed the upcoming season will bring Ted Lasso’s planned storyline to a conclusion.

However, the comedy-drama’s increased popularity could convince the showrunners to reconsider their intentions to bring it to an end next year. 

The storyline for three seasons had already been mapped out before the show’s debut in 2020, but much of the cast are willing to return for more. 

Speaking to Mr Porter, Brett confirmed: “We had a three-season arc planned. We are writing the end of that story.”

As well as starring as Richmond’s notoriously surly midfielder and former captain, Brett joined the show’s writing team for the second season.

He revealed he and writers Bill Lawrence and Brendan Hunt are currently writing the scripts for Ted Lasso’s highly anticipated third season.

The next instalment is still being treated as the show’s grand finale by the writers and producers.

Even so, Brett could be another cast member to throw their hat in the ring if Sudeikis decides to reprise the plucky coach one more time.

“Whether there’ll be more after that, we’ll see,” he teased.

Though the Ted Lasso star admitted: “I genuinely don’t know. 

“But I do know that the story that we were telling over three years will be complete.”

While Brett is still unsure where the series goes at the end of season three, another instalment isn’t completely off the cards just yet.

He has also shown plenty of enthusiasm for the role and certainly doesn’t seem averse to playing Roy for more than three seasons. 

In his interview, Brett added: “The work that I do is what I always wanted to do and it does make me happy. 

“It feels like a purpose. It fulfils me and I’m very, very lucky to have something that does.”

Although the series has been exploring some darker things in its second season, Ted Lasso’s overall message of hope and kindness has resonated with the fans, and its cast.

Brett explained: “The fact that it resonates so much with people probably suggests how starved we were to see people treat each other decently in the media.

“We just didn’t see it. Ted Lasso seems revolutionary, when really, it shouldn’t.”

The football comedy debuted as a rare beacon of optimism during some of the most challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic’s first year. 

Production is full steam ahead on season three currently, but hopefully the unexpected comedy hit can continue to surprise audiences for years to come. 

Ted Lasso seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on Apple TV+.
