“Ted Lasso” is a beloved comedy series about an American football coach who is hired to coach a British soccer team. The show is known for its heartwarming humor, positive messages, and diverse cast of characters. However, some fans have expressed concern that the show is suffering from the same woes as the final seasons of “Shameless,” the American comedy drama series that aired on Showtime between 2011 and 2021: being ruined by “woke” producers and writers who are adding unnecessary character developments for the sake of “wokeism” – or diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Ted Lasso returns to Apple TV+ on Wednesday, March 15, followed by new episodes every Wednesday through May 31.

One of the main criticisms of the third season of “Ted Lasso” is that it has revealed a closeted gay player, an gay newspaper reporter, and a main character, Keely Jones (Juno Temple) who has taken an abrupt and seemingly out-of-character lesbian turn. Some fans argue that these character developments are are unnecessary and that they are being added simply to appease “woke” audiences. They argue that the show was originally about a diverse group of people coming together and learning to love and accept each other, regardless of their differences. They say that the addition of these new characters is changing the focus of the show and making it less about the characters and more about the characters’ identities. Some claim that the series has turned from good entertainment into a preachy, tedious, unfunny DEI exercise.

One of the most remarked upon developments is the character of Colin Hughes (Billy Harris), a gay soccer player, who has not come out to the world as gay. Some critics have argued that Colin’s character is unnecessary and that his sexuality is being used as a way to score diversity points. They argue that the show would be just as good, if not better, without Colin’s character or the storyline.

The show this season also introduced a refugee storyline. The character of Sam Obisanya, a Nigerian-born soccer player, has a restaurant that is ransacked after he tweets support for refugees crossing the English channel.

Other fans argue that the addition of these new characters is actually a net positive. They say that it is important to see diverse characters represented on television, and that “Ted Lasso” is doing a good job adding LGBT community representation. They say that the characters are well-written and that they add to the show’s inclusivity, drama, and heart.

Ultimately, whether or not you think that “Ted Lasso” is being ruined by “woke” producers and writers is a matter of opinion. There are valid arguments to be made on both sides of the issue. However, it is important to remember that “Ted Lasso” is, at its heart, a comedy show, and it is not meant to be taken too seriously.

So, in a nutshell, some people argue that the addition of these new characters is pandering to a certain audience. They say that the show is trying to be “woke” in order to appeal to a wider audience. Other fans argue that the addition of these new characters is simply a reflection of the real world. They say that the LGBT community is a part of our society, and that it is important to see them represented on television.

In the end, the decision of whether or not to watch “Ted Lasso” is, as always, up to each individual and the audience will ultimately decide how the series is regarded when its run has finished.
