Wrexham FC’s unexpected relationship with Hollywood will continue in 2023 with the release of Season Two of the hugely popular ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ series.
The co-ownership project of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney has catapulted the Welsh town, and its famous football club, to global attention since the start of 2021.
The duo have played a huge role in raising the profile of the club, and financing their drive to the 2022/23 National League title, and promotion back into the English Football League (EFL).
However, events off the pitch have been just as fascinating for Wrexham’s expanding worldwide fanbase – and the latest series of the TV show is now ready to drop.
Welcome to Wrexham Season 2 release date
US broadcasters, and creators of the series, FX, have confirmed Season 2 of ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ will be released on September 12, 2023.
The series will then be released across Disney+ and Hulu on the following day as it continues to build on a superb first edition.

The first series was nominated for six Emmys, including Best Unstructured Reality Series, with Reynolds and McElhenney at the centre of the project.
Where to stream Welcome to Wrexham and watch on TV
Welcome to Wrexham will be available to stream on Disney+ in UK viewers, and on FX/Hulu in the United States.
The second season of the documentary follows Reynolds and McElhenney’s journey through the 2022/23 promotion season as the team finally achieved their goal of returning to the EFL pyramid.
What is Welcome to Wrexham?
First released in August 2022, the first season of Welcome to Wrexham focused on the 2021/22 campaign at the Racecourse Ground, as the Welsh side fell just short of their promotion target.
The Dragons were rescued from financial oblivion in 2011 and the 2023/24 season marks their first stint back in the EFL since being relegated in 2008.
Reynolds and McElhenney, as the documentary shows, have endured some difficulties and brilliant moments in their ownership of the club, and the pair are committed to pushing for a long-term goal of reaching the Premier League.
