If there's one show you need to watch in this messed-up year that is 2020, it's Ted Lasso on Apple TV+. Yes, it's a feel-good show about an American college football coach who's brought on to manage a Premiere League football team (that's soccer, boys and girls) that's fighting relegation (that's being demoted to a lesser league). But it truly is a something that'll give you that warm and fuzzy feeling that you forgot actually exists.

Yes, it's that good.

And Apple has announced that Ted Lasso will be back for a third season. 

No, that doesn't mean you've missed Season 2 and have some catching up to do — that doesn't even start shooting until January in London (which is also January for the rest of the world), Apple says. 

Here's the gist from Apple:

“Ted Lasso” stars Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from Kansas who is hired to coach a professional soccer team in England despite having no experience coaching soccer. The series also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick Mohammed.

Ted Lasso premiered on Apple TV+ on Aug. 14, 2020.

Apple TV+ is the all-original streaming service from Apple. It runs $4.99 a month after a seven-day free trial. (If you buy a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac, you get a year free.) But it's not available only on Apple devices — you also can watch on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and select smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Sony and Vizio.

Apple TV+ launched in November 2019 and already garnered 118 award nominations and 39 wins, including a Primetime Emmy Award, Daytime Emmy Awards, a SAG Award, NAACP Image Award, Critics Choice Award, Peabody Award and others.
