If someone were to try to rank the busiest people in Hollywood, Brett Goldstein would have a strong claim to the top spot. In addition to playing Roy Kent on “Ted Lasso” — a role for which he won two Emmys — he pulls double duty as a writer and producer on the show while also developing other projects (and occasionally Hercules in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ).
A recently published Happy Sad Confused During a podcast for the new Apple series Shrinking (with Jason Segel and Bill Lawrence), Goldstein was inevitably asked about a topic on every TV fan’s mind these days: how will “Ted Lasso” end?
The show’s creative team has strongly hinted that the hit comedy will end after the upcoming Season 3 (although creator and star Jason Sudeikis could theoretically change his mind about that), but Goldstein doesn’t want to reveal too many details about the ending. designed.
“Wouldn’t it be better if you didn’t know anything? If you love it, it’s wonderful to rediscover it in a new way,” Goldstein said. “I don’t want to spoil anything.”
The actor joked that the series will be similar to Game of Thrones in the final season.
“When most of the main characters die on this show, I guess you think, unless they go supernatural, that’s the end of it,” he said. “We’re going to call the finale ‘Red Wedding Match.’
All kidding aside, Goldstein made it clear that all of the “Ted Lasso” writers take responsibility for the show’s final season seriously. After watching the characters grow into pop culture icons over the years, he says everyone working on the show wants to end on a high note.
“I think it’s maybe a weird thing to say that we’re fans of this show,” he said. “I love these characters and I want them to have a good ending, but Jason has a very clear vision and always has. No one calls him.”
Season 3 of “Ted Lasso” is expected to air on Apple TV+ this spring.
