As of writing, the plot and episode count for Ted season 2 still remains a mystery. But based on what was shared on social media, it seems the entire main cast of Ted will be returning. They include MacFarlane, Grimes, Burkholder, Giorgia Whigham, and Alanna Ubach.

The season 1 finale took place in 1994, when John’s first sexual experience was interrupted by the news of O.J. Simpson fleeing from the police. At the same time, John and Ted began to come up with the “Thunder Buddies” song, which was first heard in the first Ted movie.
