‘Ted Lasso’ Star Hannah Waddingham’s Next Project Is an Animated Series
It’s been a big year for Ted Lasso star Hannah Waddingham. Recently, she won a Supporting Actress Emmy for the Apple+ comedy. Now she’s got another big project in the works. Waddingham’s next TV role will have her providing voice-over work.
Hannah Waddingham to star in animated series ‘Krapopolis’
Waddingham is stepping into the recording booth for a new animated series. According to Deadline.com, Waddingham will star in the Fox comedy Krapopolis. The series is the brainchild of Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon. The premise of the Krapopolis is about a dysfunctional family of Greek gods and mythical creatures.
Waddingham will portray Deliria, the matriarch of the family. The character has the honor of being the “goddess of self-destruction and questionable choices.” Joining Waddingham are actors Matt Berry, Richard Ayoade, Pam Murphy, and Duncan Trussell. Krapopolis is set to premiere sometime in 2022.
‘Ted Lasso’ is getting ready to start season 3
Waddingham’s new role might cause concern for Ted Lasso fans. However, they don’t need to worry. The actor will be pulling double duty between her shows. Season 3 of the Jason Sudeikis comedy is getting ready to start production.
According to ScreenRant.com, the third season will consist of 12 episodes with a premiere date in summer 2022. Unfortunately for fans, Season 3 is reportedly also Ted Lasso‘s last season with no plans to continue. Although it appears viewers will be saying goodbye to Sudeikis, Waddingham, and the other cast members, in the world of TV, anything can happen. So maybe the success of Ted Lasso will convince the producers to come back for more.
Hannah Waddingham’s ‘Ted Lasso’ character
Although Waddingham’s been acting for over 20 years, it wasn’t until Ted Lasso came along that she gained fame. Waddingham’s role as AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton made her a star. Although Rebecca starts as a vindictive ex-wife plotting to destroy the team by hiring Ted as a coach, she also has a softer side.
Rebecca forms a friendship with Ted, who impresses her with his coaching. During Season 2, Rebecca delves back into the dating game for the first time since her divorce. She begins an online flirtation with a mystery man on a dating site. When she finally meets him in person, she’s surprised to discover it’s AFC Richmond player Sam Obisanya (Toheeb Jimoh).
2021 has already been a huge year for Waddingham, and next year will be incredible too. Between Season 3 of Ted Lasso and her new show Krapopolis, Waddingham’s going to be a busy woman.
