When I say that “we’ve never needed season two of Ted Lasso more than now,” what I really mean is that “I have never needed Ted Lasso season 2 more than now.” It’s not just the kindness, it’s the hope, but not the kind that will kill you, the kind that will get you to the end of the longest, darkest tunnel you’ll ever walk through in your life.
The season two trailer has a lot of Lasso-isms in it, but it also doesn’t give away much about the plot, except that, even after relegation, they are underdogs. They also bring in a sports psychologist, who appears to be this year’s “villain,’ and by that, I mean the cold and distant person that Lasso has to win over. Also, I don’t see Jamie in the trailer, which may mean that he’s not in season two, or it may mean that they don’t want to give it away.
That’s a damn good Jets joke, too. Season two arrives on Apple TV+ on July 23rd.
