Brett Goldstein — who both writes and stars on much-loved comedy Ted Lasso — has said in a new interview that the show is likely hanging up its cleats, with the third season being written as its last.

"We are writing it like that," he told Sunday Times when asked about the show's upcoming third (and potentially final) season. "It was planned as three. Spoiler alert — everyone dies."

Goldstein's comments echo what other Ted Lasso cast and crew members have said previously, with co-creator and star Jason Sudeikis telling Entertainment Weekly in 2021:

The story that I know is the one that I wanted to tell, and so that's the one we're telling with the help of numerous people in front of and behind the camera, so it's by no means me typing every key stroke and saying every word. It's nowhere near like that. But the story that's being told — that three-season arc — is one that I see, know, and understood. I'm glad that they are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don't know.

Ted Lasso was created by Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly, and was based on a character Sudeikis originally played in ads for NBC Sports. It debuted in August 2020 and quickly drew a large audience for its gentle humour. Season 3 is currently in production and is set to arrive later this year.
