The Future of Ted Lasso: Will We See a Season 5?

It’s been a year and a few days since season three of Ted Lasso aired on television and streaming services. Little got canceled or postponed in the midst of a victory lap tour that has been as celebrated as the faux American football programme that runs at the fictional AFC Richmond. There’s an elephant in the operating room surgery – not in the football stadium – and we don’t know how it’s going to end. Speculation about season four of Ted Lasso is justifiably high. Will it happen?

The Tease That Reignited Hope

More fuel was added to the fire on 10 February by the actor Nick Mohammed, who plays Nate in the show. Mohammed wasn’t even explicitly talking about Ted Lasso while promoting the Ted Lasso Seasons 1-3 BLU-RAY disc and DVD box set. But he did use some very dramatic punctuation marks in his remarks to The Sun, and absolute devotees of the Apple TV+ hit have been looking for signs of ‘confirmation’ ever since. ‘There’s definitely more things to be said and lots of stories that haven’t been told,’ Mohammed began Vulcan-esque remarks about Nate, interjected by a black winking face emoji, italics and a period. ‘But I have definitely worked out some things for my character,’ he continued. ‘And the way I like to see things, it’s like the Complete Series is in quote marks, you know?’ Mohammed added: ‘Not necessarily in that way!’

BLU-RAY Release Sparks Speculation

With the BLU-RAY release of Ted Lasso, not only do fans get to actually own their show for the first time, the cast and creators can interact with them in new ways. Fans are asking the cast and creators about a potential fourth season in myriad promotional appearances for the BLU-RAY collection – or reading between the lines of every interview and social media post that comes their way.

Could "The Richmond Way" be the Next Chapter?

With the popularity of ‘Ted Lasso’ on Apple TV+ still surging, it is safe to say its appetite is far from sated. Though officially no word has emerged about a fourth season, there is chatter of a spinoff series that may or may not feature Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, but possibly titled The Richmond Way. With or without the comedian and actor in the starring role, the world of ‘Ted Lasso’ may yet continue to unfold in creative and surprising ways.

Signs Point to Yes, But Hope is a Tricky Thing

Courtesy AppleTV+Then there was the Nick Mohammed (the actor who plays Nate) teaser that has sent speculation about the show’s future into a frenzy. The internet has been awash with fans reading every line and every hint as gospel fact. But, then again, there’s nothing in Hollywood that’s set in stone. For the moment, all we can say for sure is: it’s the hope that kills you.

BLU-RAY and Beyond: Keeping the Spirit of Ted Lasso Alive

Available as a BLU-RAY collection, Ted Lasso fans can relive their favorite moments from the show in high-definition. The Christmas special with Hannah Waddingham, his moving speech to Rebecca in ‘Trouble Is a Friend of Mine’ plus the surprise cameos – we will never get tired of ‘Ted Lasso’.

Engaging with the World of "Ted Lasso"

While we hold our collective breath for official word on whether Ted Lasso will return for a third season, the fan network continues to grow. All manner of speculation, hopes and theories continue to be shared on social media and fan sites.

Exploring the World of BLU

In the streaming era, the release of a series on BLU-RAY gives fans a chance to dive into their favorite content at a whole new level. A copy of Ted Lasso Seasons 1-3 both serves as a marker of the delight watching the show has brought, and affirms that some aspects of analog media still have a role to play in the digital age. With its premium video quality and behind-the-scenes bonus content, the BLU-RAY set empowers fans to become fully immersed in the world conceived and created by Sudeikis and his team.

The Enduring Appeal of BLU

And beyond the case of Ted Lasso, the ongoing success of BLU-RAY releases proves that there is a longstanding desire for a high-quality collectible media. When between stream and download it’s so easy to forget about the content of a film or show with each click and swipe, the simple final step of inputting a BLU-RAY disc feels like a tangible way of making something concrete and permanent. While BLU-RAY might not be the most cutting-edge technology on the market, its degrowth has become a reminder that there is still an audience, in a world filled with intangible content, for something that feels more enduring than digital media.

Conclusion: The Legacy of "Ted Lasso"

Who knows what the future of ‘Ted Lasso’ will yield? We’ll have to wait and see. Someday soon, the series may conclude. Other TV series might take over its position in the collective pop-culture imagination. We’ll anticipate the next season, pop in those BLU-RAY special features, post on fan forums; who knows, there might even be a fifth season. But, for now, as long as we still hope to tell more stories – and for as long as they last – we know that Ted Lasso, Nate and the whole Richmond team will have inspired, entertained and believed their way into our imaginations.

Finally, while it feels like ‘Ted Lasso’s’ future is in the balance, the joy and the collective that the show has wrought are all too real. The new BLU has not only re-opened the question of what’s next for the series but also secured the show’s legacy within the fan base. Until a fourth season (or spinoff) arrives, the show’s spirit will continue to play across big and small screens and in BLU-RAY collections everywhere.
