The first full trailer for Ted Lasso‘s third season is a reminder you can’t always get what you want. But that doesn’t mean you never can. And this season viewers might get something they really, really want: revenge. Because even though this promo for Ted Lasso season three doesn’t have much dialogue, it seems to say a whole lot about AFC Richmond turncoat Nate Shelley. He doesn’t seem totally comfortable as Rupert’s manager. And a big showdown against Ted and his squad might not go the way the “Wonder Kid” hoped.
The Rolling Stones welcome fans back to the pitch in this first full look at Ted Lasso season three. This year the series once again has a proper villain after Nate’s heel turn during the second season.
But this trailer isn’t all good for AFC Richmond. There are plenty of problems for the team, its coaching staff, and players that go well beyond Nate.

The season’s official synopsis provides more insight into everything we can expect to see.
From Apple TV:
In the third season of Ted Lasso, the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces ridicule as media predictions widely peg them to finish last in the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the “wonder kid,” has gone to work for Rupert (Anthony Head) at West Ham United. In the wake of Nate’s contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt). Meanwhile, while Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates being the boss of her own PR agency. Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway.
How bad can things really be, though, when Ted has a new “Believe” sign up. How can you not believe in “believe?” Plus, this year has Roy Kent saying things like “great job.”
Who wouldn’t want to receive a compliment like that from someone like Roy? Maybe Nate, but that guy is the worst. The rest of us will get what we really want when the show returns to Apple TV+ on March 15.
