If you're a 'Ted Lasso' fan and have been counting down the days to the Apple TV+ show's return after the bombshell ending to season two, there's good news.

The streamer has revealed a glimpse into the hugely popular show's forthcoming third season, posting a picture of Ted aka Jason Sudeikis, with frenemy Nathan 'Nate' Shelley - who (spoiler alert!) left his role as assistant coach at AFC Richmond to join West Ham United at the end of season two. West Ham's new owner Rupert Mannion lingering in the background.

It looks like fans are torn between loving and hating Nate, with one tweeting: "We viewers aren't done with Nate yet. And I suspect that the writers aren't either. It will take the whole season, but I think Nate will be redeemed. Somehow. lol."

Another wrote: "A very Return of the Jedi feel with Vader and Luke fighting in front of the Emperor."

With Richmond promoted to the Premier League in the finale of season two, there's bound to be a lot more high-stakes adventures for everyone's favourite 'soccer' coach.

The new season is due in 'spring', according to Apple TV+, although an exact date has yet TBA.
