What is Ted Lasso?

Ted Lasso is a comedy series that features Jason Sudeikis as an American football coach who gets a job to coach a professional soccer in the United Kingdom.

Other notable talents in this show include Juno Temple, Anthony Stewart Head and Brett Goldstein.

How Many Seasons Does Ted Lasso Have?

Currently, there are two finished seasons up for viewing.
