The popular TV docu-series follows Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney as they tackle trials and tribulations when taking over Wrexham FC in 2021. The duo first teamed up to buy Wrexham in November 2020 and gained control in January 2021.

The move earned them mass publicity and made for great viewing and the show was a smash hit when it was released last year.

The first season of Welcome to Wrexham followed the side’s National League promotion bid in the 2021/22 season across 18 episodes. Those who have yet to watch beware there are spoilers ahead.

The Welsh team fell short in the series after losing 4-3 to Grimsby Town in the play-off semi finals. However, Wrexham came back strong this season and confirmed their promotion back to the Football League as fifth tier champions thanks to a 3-1 victory against Boreham Wood.
