The first trailer for the second season of FX’x hit sports docuseries Welcome to Wrexham, which follows Wrexham A.F.C. and Ryan Reynolds/Rob Mcelhenney’s ownership of it, has been released.

In addition to the insights of Reynolds and Mcelhenney, Welcome To Wrexham also highlights players, coaches, and local fans, families, and business owners, ultimately creating a fully layered portrait of a community that lives and dies with its football club.

You can check out both the official trailer and synopsis for season two of Welcome to Wrexham below.

Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds navigate running the third-oldest professional football club in the world. Welcome to Wrexham is a docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town’s historic yet struggling football club.

From Hollywood to Wales, from the pitch to the locker room, the front office to the pub, Welcome to Wrexham will track Rob and Ryan’s crash course in football club ownership and the inextricably connected fates of a team and a town counting on two actors to bring some serious hope and change to a community that could use it.

While the impact that Reynolds and Mcelhenney have had on the team and town of Wrexham is obvious, their stewardship of the club is also helping grow the sport of soccer in the United States in ways they likely never imagined when they began this venture back in 2020.

WARNING: Spoilers for the second season of Welcome To Wrexham will follow.

After having their hearts broken in 2021 and just barely missing out on promotion to the EFL (English Football League), Wrexham accomplished its goal last season as they racked up 111 points to win the National League and earn automatic promotion to League Two.

The difference between the National League and League Two is that League Two is in the next tier of association football in the United Kingdom, which breaks down as follows: the Premier League is at the top, then the English Football League consists of the next three divisions — the Championship, League One, and League Two — and then below all of that in a separate tier of association football is the National League.

Long story short: Wrexham has made the jump from the amateurs to the pros.
