Did TED LASSO make an annual Christmas special and premiere it in August? Yes, yes, they did. With inspirational moments from IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE to LOVE, ACTUALLY, my wife and I officially have a new piece of content to add to our annual Christmas watchlist.

This sugar-coated episode has every character on their best behavior, and they all get to experience the magic of Christmas. Or, as Higgins says in a welcoming tone, “to the family we are born with, and to the family we make along the way.”

This enchanting episode doesn’t do anything to move the plot forward, but that’s okay. It’s not supposed to. Instead, it’s meant to be a reminder of how to give during the holiday season. Regardless of a couple of F-bombs, this small slice of “Double O heaven” is perfect for the entire family.

As Ted states, just like ONCE, audiences will love it so much that they should see it twice on Apple TV+.
