Apple TV+ has confirmed the fate of comedy series Tad Lasso, and it's good news for fans who've already fallen in love with the show after its premiere last week.
The Jason Sudeikis-led series may have only premiered with its first three episodes on Friday (August 14), but Apple has already confirmed that the show is officially coming back for a second series (via Variety).
Ted Lasso stars Sudeikis as Lasso, a small-time college American football coach from Kansas who's hired to coach AFC Richmond, a professional soccer team in England, despite a lack of experience within the game.
The series is based on the Ted Lasso character who first appeared in 2013 during an NBC Sports video created to promote the broadcast of the Premier League on the channel, with the character later returning as an analyst.
Ted Lasso also stars Stephen Manas, Phil Dunster, Brendan Hunt and Brett Goldstein, as well as Electric Dreams star Juno Temple and Intelligence's Nick Mohammed. Scrubs' Bill Lawrence serves as executive producer, alongside Sudeikis himself.
News of Ted Lasso's renewal comes as Apple TV+ continues to put together a variety of programmes on its streaming service, including Primetime Emmy Award-nominated drama series The Morning Show and crime drama Defending Jacob with Chris Evans.
Earlier this month, it was also confirmed that Ewan McGregor is reviving a classic TV series exclusively for the streaming service, with Long Way Up (a follow-up to his BBC Two show Long Way Down) premiering worldwide next month.
Meanwhile, the service also includes animated musical-comedy series Central Park, created by and starring Frozen's Josh Gad, as well as Hailee Steinfeld-fronted comedy series Dickinson, which is returning for a second season.
Ted Lasso is available to stream on Apple TV+, with new episodes following every Friday.
