While it’s unclear if there will be additional seasons of Ted Lasso, Hunt shared that “it’s not necessarily the end of the series” while speaking to Deadline in March.

“That’s probably the end of that story because we’ve always seen it as a three-part thing,” he said. “We didn’t even know for sure that we’d be able to tell all three parts – and suddenly, here we are. So there will be some sort of closure at this rate, but closure isn’t necessarily the END.”
