In recent months, we’ve all needed warm and gentle things to watch – the sweetness of Schitt’s Creek, or the perfect politeness of the Paddington movies. And way up there in the feelgood stakes is Apple TV+ comedy Ted Lasso, a wholesome and gentle series in which Jason Suseikis’ titular American Football coach is hired as the new manager of British ‘soccer’ club AFC Richmond – where he fosters a friendly and personable atmosphere among the players and local community. When the first season launched in August last year, it made a relatively small splash, but gathered steam through word-of-mouth as a must-watch for its considerable warmth. Now the show is preparing to return for its second season, and the latest trailer is available to watch below:

The new season of Ted Lasso will consist of 12 episodes – and the first two will be dropping on 23 July, followed by weekly drops for the remaining ten instalments. That’s just over a month to go until your next Lasso hit, and a steady drip-feed to keep your spirits up into the autumn months. The cast from the season all returns here, along with Sarah Niles’ new arrival Sharon – a sports psychologist who comes in to help the AFC Richmond team.

And – in further good news – a third season is in the works too. Here’s hoping Ted Lasso can, er, rustle up some more feelgood fun.
