Could This be the End of Ted Lasso’s Final Season? Hannah Waddingham Says…

Ted Lasso often makes us cry—but we’re not sure we’d be able to handle This

Brett Goldstein, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of grouchy teddy bear Roy Kent and also works as a writer on the Apple TV+ comedy, teased a cataclysmic end for the beloved character of Sam (Toheeb Jimoh) when the show returns for its third and final season.

Toheeb was the one I told [Jimoh]It was long ago that his character died,” Goldstein said. Entertainment Weekly Aug. 8. Aug. 8. Then he said, “Oh, I’m in an airplane crash?” He was like, “Oh, I’m in a helicopter crash?”. And then, I replied, “No, you ran into a still aircraft.” The helicopter is not on. You simply run into it. That’s it. There are no spoilers but this is his ending.

Goldstein is obviously kidding, but he couldn’t help himself from keeping up the bit. 

Sam said, “Listen. I believe it’s the ultimate TV death of all times.” It will, however, make Sam even more famous.
