Deadline is reporting that Sarah Niles has signed up for a series regular role in the upcoming second season of comedy series Ted Lasso.
The series is based on the character Jason Sudeikis portrayed in NBC Sports videos that were promoting Premier League coverage on the network. We follow Ted Lasso, a small-time college football coach from Kansas, who is hired to coach a professional soccer team in England, AFC Richmond, despite having no experience coaching soccer.
Sarah Niles (whose credits include I May Destroy You and Rocks) will be playing the role of Sharon, a sports psychologist who has been brought in to work with AFC Richmond.
The series has been a big hit for Apple TV+, earning itself an early third season renewal, with the second season to come out later in the year. Recently, Jason Sudeikis also won Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy at the Golden Globes.
Ted Lasso stars Jason Sudeikis, Stephen Manas, Colin Blyth, Brendan Hunt, Hannah Waddingham, Bronson Webb, Lampros Kalfuntzos, Phil Dunster, Brett Goldstein, Bradley Wj Miller, Jade Mitchell, Juno Temple, Jeremy Swift and Nick Mohammed.
