Ted Lasso’s season three may be its last



The upcoming season of Apple TV’s ‘Ted Lasso’ could be its last, according to the show’s writers

The Sunday Times reports Ted Lasso’s writers are preparing to end the popular comedy-drama after the upcoming third season.

Series star and writer Brett Goldstein says the show was always planned for three seasons.

“We are writing it like that,” he says.

The show is possibly Apple TV‘s biggest hit, but it’s still unclear if these rumours are true.

“It was planned as three. Spoiler alert — everyone dies,” Goldstein says.

In a 2021 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ted Lasso himself, Jason Sudeikis says he saw the series expanding across three seasons.

“The story that’s being told – that three-season arc – is one that I see, know, and understood. I’m glad that [Apple TV+] are willing to pay for those three seasons. As far as what happens after that, who knows? I don’t know.”

Apple hasn’t commented on the rumours and writers remain tight-lipped on any spoilers ahead of season three.

But fans are taking to social media to voice their devastation if the show does possibly come to an end.

For others, the decision is respected, but feelings are still bittersweet.

The series first debuted in 2020 and became a flagship series for Apple TV+. It has since received a number of Emmy nominations and wins, including Brett Goldstein for ‘Best Supporting Actor’.

The show was developed by Sudeikis, Bill Lawrence, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly. It is based on a character Sudeikis originally played in commercials for NBC Sports.

These images and videos are a type of artificial intelligence, which promises to create doctored videos, which are almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing.

They have typically been used in pornographic clips and for celebrity endorsements.

Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase



Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death

Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.

The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.

The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.

“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.

Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.

Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.

‘Forrest Gump’ and ‘Cast Away’ actor Tom Hanks says new tech could be used to recreate his image to appear in movies “from now until kingdom come”.

Hanks was asked about the legal ramifications of A.I. on a recent podcast with Adam Buxton.

He says talks are being held in the film industry about how to protect actors from the effects of the technology.

Hanks told the host: “I could be hit by a bus tomorrow and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on.”

The award-winning actor acknowledged that tech developments could lead to an AI-generated version of himself appearing in films he may not not normally choose.
