Ted Lasso season 2 trailer
The trailer for Ted Lasso season 2 is available to watch at the top of the article.
The two-minute trailer shows the AFC Richmond following on from their final game loss against Manchester City.
“I’ve never been embarrassed about having streaks in my draws,” Lasso tells a room full of reporters after the team garners yet another draw. “It’s just all a part of growing up.”
The trailer shows the same comedic charm that made audiences fall in love with season one – including Lasso’s trademark southern wit and metaphors.
The rest of the trailer doesn’t give too much away for what will be on offer in the new series, but we do see the arrival of sports psychologist Sharon, and also Lasso’s new fiery alter-ego, which seems to be used to fire up his team.
