This might be a hint that Apple TV+ isn’t done with Ted Lasso yet

Let me say from the outset that what I’m about to share feels a little like the ridiculous extent to which people used to parse Beatles albums and songs for hidden messages. If that’s a claim you likewise want to throw back at me for what I’m sharing here about a possible future for Ted Lasso on Apple TV+, I honestly don’t blame you. At any rate, I’m willing to bet we haven’t seen the last of the folksy coach from Kansas — or, at least, of some of the characters who made the show one of the most beloved on Apple’s streamer.

That’s because of a clue, or at least what seems to me to be a clue, in a tweet today from actor Nick Mohammed (who, of course, played Nathan Shelley on the show). In the tweet, he’s promoting the release of the show on Blu-ray starting July 30.

Check out his tweet below, though, and see if anything stands out to you:

There are actually two things worth paying attention to here. First, the branding of this set as “The Complete Series” would seem to imply that, well, that’s it. The three seasons currently available on Apple TV+ are all we’re getting. In other words, the only way this Blu-ray package could appropriately be marketed as the “complete series” is if there’s no more to come.

So then … what’s with the cheeky winking emoji?

Maybe I’m making a mountain out of a molehill here, but that leads me to suspect that something is up. And it’s not like Apple hasn’t already teased more to come from this series.

If I had to guess, the streamer, in all likelihood, would cook up a spinoff of some kind, possibly focused on the characters of Keeley Jones and/or Rebecca Welton. That would make the most sense to me, given how things ended with Season 3. Like I said, though, I don’t blame you if you if you think I’m reading way too much into Mohammed’s tweet.

If anything, the fact that so many people (myself included) are still desperate for more is just another indication of what a gem Apple gave its subscribers in the form of this series, which arrived right smack in the middle of the Covid pandemic when we all needed its joy and positivity the most. Fingers crossed, but for now we’ll have to wait and see if Apple gives us any more from the world of the show that taught us all to have the memory of a goldfish — and to be curious, not judgmental.
