Jason Sudeikis lets out his inner Ted Lasso when asked about a possible fourth season: ‘We got to take it one game at a time’
Jason Sudeikis plays Ted Lasso so well in the Apple TV+ series that he’s seemingly taken on some of the soccer coach’s wisdom.
The actor, 46, gave the perfect coach’s response when asked about whether a fourth season of the show is in the cards.
‘I feel like a real coach when I have to tell folks you can’t look at season 4 when we’re in the middle of season 3,’ the star told Entertainment Tonight. ‘We can’t worry about the championships when we’re in the first round of playoffs, you know?’

The SNL alum added, ‘We got to take it one game at a time.’
‘As cliché as that may sound, there’s actually truth. It’s hard to think about what to do in the distant future when you’re trying to deal with what’s right in front of you.’
Ted Lasso has received much critical acclaim in recent weeks. The show was awarded with 20 Emmy nominations and took home seven awards.
