Everyone involved with "Ted Lasso" seems to be getting a sizeable pay bump.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, from Jason Sudeikis to the rest of the AFC Richmond team, salaries are going up. According to the report, production on season three was delayed by a few weeks due to salary negotiations. Sudeikis, for example, will reportedly jump from earning around $250,000 to $1 million per episode.
Other stars like Hannah Waddingham, Juno Temple, and Brendan Hunt are reportedly increasing their salaries from as high as $75,000 per episode to upwards of $150,000 per episode.
There are also discussions around the series staying exclusive to Apple TV+. While Warner wants to bring it to its own streaming network at some point after season three, Apple wants to keep the series exlcusive to its own streaming service.
The fate of the series is also still unknown. While a previous interview from show creator and writer Bill Lawrence indicated the series could be finished after season three, recent statement seems to indicate it could go further now. It all depends on Sudeikis, said Lawrence.
