at .

The long wait for Ted Lasso Season 3 is almost over.

The series returns tomorrow (March 15), and it remains one of the best shows on TV.

TV Fanatic got the chance to speak with Brendan Hunt, Hannah Waddingham, and Nick Mohammed ahead of the premiere, and it's clear they believe there's still a lot of life left in the series.

Brendan Hunt (Coach Beard) had quite the journey on Ted Lasso Season 2, but where will his journey lead him on the third -- and likely final -- season?

Check out the interview below and scroll down for more.

The early promotional material for Ted Lasso Season 3 has focused on Nate's decision (Mohammed) to defect from AFC Richmond for West Ham United.

It was one of the most shocking parts of Ted Lasso Season 2 Episode 12, but Mohammed is excited about showing this very different side of Nate to viewers.

In hindsight, it was evident Nate wanted to do something that would allow him to get the recognition he thought he deserved.

That leaves him in a bit of a pickle when we pick up because he's on the outs with the people who called him friends.

Nate's New Job - Ted Lasso

It is an exciting plot and one the series handles very well in those initial episodes of Ted Lasso Season 3.

Check out the full interview below and scroll down for more.

Hannah Waddingham's Rebecca was looking for love on Ted Lasso Season 2 and got closer to Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh) after he was revealed as the man she had been speaking to on the dating app Bantr.

They started an on-and-off relationship midway through the season, and many fans were surprised that they ended the season in a good place.

Does that continue into the third season? We know you have questions, and the answers are below.

Check out the interview with Hannah.

"In the 12-episode third season of Ted Lasso, the newly-promoted AFC Richmond faces ridicule as media predictions widely peg them as last in the Premier League and Nate (Nick Mohammed), now hailed as the "wonder kid," has gone to work for Rupert (Anthony Head) at West Ham United," the logline for Ted Lasso Season 3 reads.

"In the wake of Nate's contentious departure from Richmond, Roy Kent (Brett Goldstein) steps up as assistant coach, alongside Beard (Brendan Hunt)."

"Meanwhile, while Ted (Jason Sudeikis) deals with pressures at work, he continues to wrestle with his own personal issues back home, Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) is focused on defeating Rupert, and Keeley (Juno Temple) navigates being the boss of her own PR agency," Apple teases.

Pondering Their Next Move  - Ted Lasso

"Things seem to be falling apart both on and off the pitch, but Team Lasso is set to give it their best shot anyway."

It sounds like another great season, right? There's also a certain finality to it, so if this is the end, at least we're ending with the characters in good places.

Ted Lasso Quotes

Beard: Coach, is this nuts? Us leaving like this?
Ted: I mean, we almost won the whole frigging thing, you know? Saying goodbye to a bunch of nice folks. And I know I've finally accepted that air conditioning is a privilege and not a right. I don't know. What do you think?
Beard: I can't do this. I don't wanna go, Ted. I'm in love with Jane. I wanna stay, and I don't wanna let you down. But with your permission, I'd love to run off this plane and into her arms.
Ted: Well, I mean, what about your luggage?
Beard: Forget my luggage. It's full of rice.
Ted: What? Why?
Beard: I haven't slept for three days, man.
Ted: Okay.
Beard: I'm sorry, you know. I've been dreading this. Talking to you. Abandoning you.
Ted: What?
Beard: No, no, no, hold on, Coach.
Ted: You ain't abandoning me, okay? You're just following your heart. I get it. And, yeah, you should go. But look, man, I don't think they're gonna let you off this plane with that door already shut.
Beard: I have a plan.
Ted: Of course you do. Okay. What do you need me to do?
Beard: Whatever's about to happen, that's a great start. I love you, Ted.
Ted: I love you too, Willis.

Rebecca: John Wingsnight. What a lovely surprise.
John: Hello. Oh, uh, this is Jessica Darling.
Rebecca: Jessica, darling, Rebecca Welton. It's so lovely to meet you.
Jessica: Oh, hi. Likewise. Hello, there.
John: We actually went out on a few dates. And then Rebecca dumped me out of nowhere. In this exact coffee shop. Not that I come here all the time, hoping to run into you. 'Cause I don't.
Jessica: Okay. Well, may I say, Rebecca, thank you. We're engaged. Ring-a-ding-ding. Wedding calling.
Rebecca: Engaged. Congratulations. That's... Wow. How... did...it happen?
John: Oh, we matched on the apps, uh, six months ago. Not Bantr. Couldn't use that. It felt a bit weird since, uh... Yeah. And in a sea of anythings, I went fishing and caught myself a soul mate.
Rebecca: Oh.
John: Took her to see Hamilton on our first date. Amazing. And then defended my honor.
Rebecca: Oh, God.
Jessica: Yeah. Get this. It's intermission. We're standing in line to buy the CD of the soundtrack, 'cause I refuse to stream music. And guess who's standing in front of us. Sir Anthony Hopkins. Can you imagine?
Rebecca: Nope.
John: Jessica politely taps him on the shoulder and asks if he'll film a little video for Jessica's father as Hannibal Lecter, you know. And he said no. Yeah. So I grabbed that rapscallion by the collar, and I said, "Hey, we didn't ask you to be famous." And took a quick ussie of the three of us and emailed it to her... her dad's nurse. Made his day.
Jessica: My shite in nining armor.
Rebecca: What? I just... What did you say?
John: You jumbled your words there a bit.
Rebecca: What did you... You just said, "shite in nining armor"?
Jessica: Yeah. I... I meant to say "knight in shining armor." I just... One of me brain farts.
John: Quite rare for her. She's actually very smart. Went to Oxford for a bit.
Rebecca: Wait, n-no, you said, "shite in nining armor." You actually said those specific words.
Jessica: I did.
