The second season of Ted Lasso doesn’t premiere until July 23 but critics given early access absolutely love the upcoming episodes. The season two of the Apple TV+ comedy has a 100% approval rating from the review-aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
The critics consensus says, “As comforting as a buttery biscuit from a friend, Ted Lasso‘s sophomore season is a feel-good triumph that plays into the show’s strengths while giving its supporting team more time on the pitch.”
Rotten Tomatoes’s very positive season two rating is based on reviews from 15 critics. The TV and film rating service made the announcement via Twitter.

Ted Lasso quickly became beloved
Ted Lasso follows an endlessly optimistic American football coach (played by Jason Sudeikis) who is recruited to lead an English soccer team. The results are both funny and uplifting.
The new season will, once again, feature the titular football underdog coach as he tries his darnedest to take AFC Richmond to the top of the Premier League.
Season one of the Apple TV+ show was given a Peabody Award, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Critics Choice Awards, Writers Guild Awards, Golden Globes and AFI Television Program of the Year.
The complete first season of Ted Lasso is available for Apple TV+ subscribers to enjoy now. And season 2 kicks off July 23. Watching it requires a $4.99-a-month fee, but that includes an array of other TV shows, from comedies to sci-fi.
