Ahead of the highly anticipated season two premiere of "Ted Lasso," which recently made history as the most Emmy Award-nominated freshman comedy series, Apple today celebrated the beloved hit series with a special premiere event at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. The cast and creators of the award-winning, 20-time Emmy Award-nominated series attended the event, including Jason Sudeikis (who stars as Ted Lasso; and is also the series' creator and executive producer), Hannah Waddingham (stars as Rebecca), Brendon Hunt (stars as Coach Beard; series executive producer), Juno Temple (stars as Keeley), Jeremy Swift (stars as Higgins), Brett Goldstein (stars as Roy Kent; series writer), Cristo Fernandez (stars as Dani Rojas), creator and executive producer Bill Lawrence, and more.

While only the first episode of season 2 will be available on July 23, a new one will be made available weekly and the show has already been renewed for a third season.

Jason Sudeikis is Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team – despite having no experience. But what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, underdog determination – and biscuits. The widely acclaimed series also stars Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift, Juno Temple, Brett Goldstein, Phil Dunster and Nick Mohammed. Sarah Niles joins the cast in season two as Sharon, a sports psychologist who has been brought in to work with AFC Richmond.
