Lace up your boots because Rob McElhenney has shared a Welcome to Wrexham tease about new faces we can expect to see on the pitch in season 2.

Welcome to Wrexham, the TV series following a struggling English football team as they attempt to turn things around, it aired its season 1 on Disney Plus. The series is somewhat of a Ted Lasso alternative if you happen to be a documentary person.

Rob McElhenney of the comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame, and Ryan Reynolds, most known for his Deadpool in the Marvel movies, gave AFC Wrexham a second chance when they purchased the club and decided to help preserve its place in football history — Welcome to Wrexham is what football is all about.

With Welcome to Wrexham season 2 on its way to us sometime in 2023, McElhenney took to social media to give us a little tease about the upcoming season.

“The excellence continues,” McElhenney said, sharing a tweet made by Wrexham AFC Women’s official Twitter account. The initial post celebrates the news of a full-time whistle blowing with an 8-1 final score in their favour after a “bruising” home encounter.

He continued, “Cannot wait for the world to meet these women,” finishing the post with a smiley face and a Welsh flag emoji. From what it sounds like, the women’s team will be getting some love in season 2 of the sports series. Exciting news for the players and fans alike.
