Ted Lasso season 2
Second series of the heartwarming comedy series in which American football coach Ted Lasso is hired by a British woman (Hannan Waddingham) to ruin her ex-husband’s football club. The Texan trainer, who knows nothing about football, is initially killed by the media, supporters and players, but thanks to his endless, almost inhumane goodness he still gets many people within the club behind him. Sudeikis’ strong acting in Season 1 earned him a Golden Globe award. Apple TV+, 12 episodes, weekly (Friday).
Sky Rojo season 2
In the first season, three young women fled the brothel they worked in and were chased by their pimp’s henchmen. In season 2 the roles are reversed: the women want revenge and the hunters, who are increasingly conflicted, become the prey. Created by Alex Pina and Esther Martínez Lobato, who also worked on The Money Heist. Netflix, 8 episodes.
