Ted Lasso S3 Finale Completes The Show's Musical Game

“Ted Lasso” is no stranger to classic special episodes. Over the years, the show has given us its take on a Christmas episode in Season 2’s “Carol of the Bells.” We’ve also received a (mostly) bottle episode that focuses on one character in the same season’s Beard-centric “Beard After Hours.” Season 3 even dabbles with the classic “the characters go abroad” theme in “Sunflowers.” 

With talented singers like Hannah Waddingham and Anthony Head in the cast, it’s actually kind of surprising that the show hasn’t featured a full musical episode. However, the musical numbers have trickled in over the seasons. From singing “Frozen” in karaoke to her wonderful funeral rendition of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” and the team bus rendition of Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Three Little Birds,” Waddingham’s Rebecca alone has been responsible for several. Apart from actual musical performances, of course, music has always been an important part of the show’s DNA, with the soundtrack and street musicians alike contributing to the series’ aural atmosphere. Even when they’re not actively singing, the characters have sprinkled a truly astounding amount of stealthy musical references in their various interviews and conversations. 

With an elaborate performance of a famous “The Sound of Music” song, the show gives one more major nod to its devotion to music — and when you put all of its musical moments together, you might discover that “Ted Lasso” isn’t too far removed from having a full-length musical episode that just so happens to pace itself leisurely over three seasons.
