Ted Lasso has been wiping up in the season’s early awards shows. At the Golden Globes, Sudeikis earned the award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series, Musical or Comedy, and the show earned three honors at this year’s Critics Choice Awards on March 7: Best Comedy Series, Best Actor in a Comedy Series for Sudeikis, and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Waddingham.
Production on Season 2 is currently underway across the pond. Season 1 saw U.S. college football coach Lasso head overseas with his hokey accent to lead the AFC Richmond soccer league with no experience in the sport, and a team owner (Waddingham) gunning for him to fail.
Stay tuned for additional casting news and Season 2 details as production continues.
