Season two of Welcome to Wrexham follows historic campaign
Season one first aired in 2022 and quickly became an instant hit. The opening 18 episodes focused on Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney purchasing Wrexham and the club’s quest to be promoted to the English Football League (EFL). The Welsh side, however, failed to win the playoff final after the 2021/22 season.
Nevertheless, season two will highlight the club’s triumph in the National League during the 2022/23 campaign. Wrexham dominated the division and finally earned promotion to League Two. The upcoming season will be the first time the team is set to play in the EFL since 2007/08.
Wrexham currently touring U.S. for summer friendlies
The popularity of the series has boosted Wrexham’s global adoration of the sport. In fact, the relatively small Welsh club is currently touring the United States for its preseason preparations. While Premier League powerhouses typically get to schedule summer fixtures Stateside, Wrexham joined in on the fun. The newly promoted League Two team recently faced Chelsea in North Carolina. They will also get to play Manchester United and L.A. Galaxy’s B side and Bethlehem Steel.
Fans of the show in the United Kingdom and Ireland can catch the premiere of season two on Wednesday, September 13th on Disney+. Welcome to Wrexham will be available to stream on Star+ in Latin America as well.
