Welcome to Wrexham looks to be returning for season two. The documentary series that follows events surrounding Wrexham A.F.C., as well as their owners Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds, has been a resounding hit.
McElhenney himself confirmed that the show will come back for an additional season. “Oops. Sorry. Tonight is the last episode of Season 1 of @Wrexhamfx,” McElhenney tweeted on Wednesday. “Season 2 will return next year. I have a clause in my contract that stipulates I will not do anything less than 16 seasons of a TV show.”
The actor’s joke is a reference to another show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. It has also been confirmed that season 16 of this show will be released sometime in the Fall of 2023.
