When is the Welcome to Wrexham season 2 release date? In case you didn’t know, Ryan Reynolds and his pal Rob McElhenney, the creator of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, bought a British football team called Wrexham AFC in 2020, and the resulting docuseries is amazing.
The show, called Welcome to Wrexham, is produced by FX and aired on the streaming service Disney Plus in 2022. The TV series follows Reynolds and McElhenney from the point of taking over the football club, through various meetings with the players and fans of the club, and shows all the action on and off the pitch as Wrexham look to gain promotion to the next tier of English football.
We cannot wait for more, so when is the Welcome to Wrexham season 2 release date exactly? And what will happen in the next chapter of the story? We’ve got all the information you need.
Welcome to Wrexham season 2 release date speculation
It’s almost certain that Welcome to Wrexham season 2 will arrive on our screens in August 2023.
Disney and Rob McElhenney have already confirmed a second season is in the offing. The next instalment of Welcome to Wrexham will cover the period of the 2022/23 season, which has just finished in May 2023. The first season of Welcome to Wrexham was released in August 2022, so logically, we can predict season 2 will be released in August 2023.
Welcome to Wrexham season 2 cast
Naturally, both Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney will be back in the Welcome to Wrexham season 2 cast. They may be busy making Marvel movies and comedy series like It’s Always Sunny, but the pair have their work cut out at Wrexham.
Humphrey Ker will be back too. He’s a good friend of Reynolds and McElhenney and is essentially their liaison in Wrexham, helping to run the club as Executive Director. We will also see Phil Parkinson running the team once again. He may have failed to get Wrexham promoted last season, but he kept his job and led the team to glory this time around.
Star players such as Paul Mullin, Ben Tozer, and new signing Ben Foster will likely feature heavily, as will the fans and people of Wrexham.
Welcome to Wrexham season 2 cast list:
- Ryan Reynolds
- Rob McElhenney
- Humphrey Ker

What is Welcome to Wrexham season 2 about?
Welcome to Wrexham season 2 will show Wrexham AFC winning the National League title in the 2022/23 football season. There was a huge promotion party after the Red Dragons won the league, so season 2 is sure to be full of wild celebrations.
Wrexham have been playing in the fifth tier of the English football ladder, the National League, since 2008 and have been desperate to get promoted to the next division. The scenes after the recent win over Boreham Wood at the Racecourse Ground were incredible, and we can’t wait to see the behind-the-scenes footage of this momentous victory.
It’s not all about the players on the pitch, though. The first season of Welcome to Wrexham shines a spotlight on the community of Wrexham and wider issues surrounding the club and the people of the city. We expect season 2 to follow suit in that respect and showcase the human side of football. That’s the beauty of the show. It’s very similar to Apple TV Plus series Ted Lasso in many ways, but Welcome to Wrexham is what football is all about – the people.
Welcome to Wrexham season 2 trailer speculation
There is a tiny teaser for Welcome to Wrexham season 2, and you can watch it right here. The teaser highlights the people of Wrexham, talking about how much their club means to them, and it’s very sweet. It doesn’t show us much about what the second season will be about, though, but that’s fine.
The show will be edited together now the domestic season is over, so we should get a proper trailer around July 2023.
Where can I watch Welcome to Wrexham season 2?
You will be able to watch Welcome to Wrexham season 2 on Disney Plus. The first season of the Disney Plus show is currently available on the platform, too.
How many episodes of Welcome to Wrexham season 2 will there be?
Nothing has been confirmed but we expect Welcome to Wrexham season 2 to consist of 18 episodes just like the first season. There’s lots to cram into this second season, given the success the team has enjoyed, so we doubt the show will be cut down at all.
That’s all we know about the Welcome to Wrexham season 2 release date for now, but we’ll be keeping an ear out for any insider info from the team talks at the Racecourse Ground.
