It’s a show that has made Emmy Awards history with 20 nominations, a record-breaking feat for a comedy series in just its first season. It’s a purely brilliant show that has impacted millions and millions of fans in an unparalleled way. In fact, viewers from all over the world have been able to laugh with the characters, cry with them, and celebrate both the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows with them. Needless to say, the cast, creators and crew have truly scored big creating the masterpiece of a series we all have come to know and love named Ted Lasso.
The remarkable Apple TV+ series follows Ted Lasso, an American football coach who unexpectedly finds himself hired to coach a professional soccer team in England. Lasso is played by the prolific Jason Sudeikis, who is also one of the show’s creators. Although having no experience coaching a soccer team, his admirable optimism and unique coaching skills creates a terrific kind of “Lasso Way” that not only is followed by the team in the show, but by all of the series’ die-hard fans as well. The show is, obviously, a go-to choice for sports fans, but it doesn’t just appeal to soccer enthusiasts. Ted Lasso has so much depth to it that it goes beyond being just a sports story. It touches on meaningful and important topics that resonate with all viewers. It talks about mental health and how family doesn’t only have to be through blood, but through the power of teamwork as well. Fans and critics can agree – there’s no show that quite compares to the greatness of Ted Lasso.
A whole lot of excitement awaits in the much-anticipated, second season of the series, set to premiere on Apple TV+ on July 23rd. Season one of the series was groundbreaking, and the cast and crew worked even harder to make season two of Ted Lasso equally as memorable as the first. This all new season has a lot in store and will expand upon each of the characters, allowing viewers to enter in their lives even more. The show has had such a massive reach that it was even picked up for a third season before it began production on its wondrous, second season.
Starring in the binge-worthy series as Richard Montlaur is the exceptional Stephen Manas, a fantastic actor who mesmerizes everyone with his show-stopping work in the series. Manas truly stands out in every scene he’s in and is such a spectacular part of the Ted Lasso family. The stellar French actor has it all – an indescribable talent for acting, excellent charm and charisma and on top of making an everlasting mark in the entertainment world, he’s even a skilled music producer as well! Sporting his awesome number eight jersey in Ted Lasso, Stephen Manas is a superstar on the field and off and we can’t wait to see him continue to leave us all in awe in both season two and season three of the highly-acclaimed series.
