When the headlines reported that Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney had bought a fifth-tier Welsh football club, none of us could have possibly imagined it’d result in perhaps the greatest sporting underdog story of our generation.

Now, a little under a year since the first instalment of the hit docuseries’ finale, the Welcome To Wrexham season 2 release date is finally upon us (September 12th in the US via FX; September 13th in Australia via Disney+).

Here’s everything else we know about the forthcoming episodes.

Has Welcome To Wrexham season 2 been confirmed?

Last year, a week after the season one finale aired/streamed, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds confirmed Welcome To Wrexham season 2 had been greenlit on Twitter.

“We can also confirm there will be a season two of Welcome To Wrexham for our millions of new fans,” Reynolds revealed in a video post.

McElhenney jokingly added in reference to his tenure on FX’s longstanding comedy series It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia: “Season two will return next year [2023]. I have a clause in my contract that stipulates I will not do anything less than 16 seasons of a TV show.”

Why the second season of Welcome To Wrexham is bringing major entertainment

At the risk of spoiling what’s to come, it must be said: Wrexham AFC has been killing it since we last checked in with them via docuseries.

After losing to Grimsby Town in overtime during the season 1 finale, narrowly failing to gain promotion out of the National League in the process, the Red Dragons picked themselves up, dusted their kit off, and got to work. Essentially living up to the “maximum effort” ethos of Reynolds’ Deadpool.

Aside from mounting a wildly successful campaign for promotion out of the National League — the fifth tier of the English football pyramid — and into the English Football League (EFL) League Two after their 3-1 victory against Boreham Wood, the Wrexham football club has actually made history.

As some of you may recall from all the hyped news coverage, the team managed to be the only National League team to reach the fourth round of the 2022–23 FA Cup, beating Coventry City FC in a huge third-round upset.

Although they would eventually get knocked out at the hands/feet of Sheffield United, they put up a helluva fight. The first game between Wrexham AFC and the Blades became ESPN’s most followed football game across its digital platforms.

Still, returning to EFL League Two after a 15-year absence will certainly make for killer viewing.

There’s also a good chance we’ll be following the Wrexham AFC Women, as alluded to via tweet by Rob McElhenney, which dominated the Genero Adran Noth league after also finishing runners-up in the 2021-22 season.
