You’d have to live under a rock if you don’t know Wrexham. The Welsh club has taken the English soccer world by storm after being taken over by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. The once close-to-extinct club has fired on all cylinders under the new regime, and a lot of credit goes to the team’s docuseries ‘Welcome to Wrexham‘.

McElhenney talked about the show’s success during his appearance on Good Morning America. The Wrexham co-owner claimed the docuseries’ success was somewhat unprecedented, with him and Ryan only looking to narrate the story of their small town to the world. The ‘Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ star stated, No, I mean honestly, we just wanted to tell the story of the town of Wrexham. We thought and hoped that it would resonate with people all over the world because it’s a show about working-class people.”

He added, It’s not really a show about football. Because that transcends cultures. When we originally started, we were in the national league which is out of the English football system. We were in League 5 (National League), then we got promoted to League Two, and now we got promoted to League One.”

Welcome to Wrexham has been a massive hit amongst the fans, with the show’s second season bagging multiple Emmy awards. The third season was released earlier this month, with the episodes showcasing the team’s journey throughout League Two. Meanwhile, production house FX had significant news for fans about the show’s future!

Nick Grad stated, Welcome to Wrexham is scoring big too, winning five Emmy Awards and a fourth season that will continue to document the team’s remarkable journey and its impact on the Wrexham community and growing legion of fans worldwide.”

The third season of Welcome to Wrexham might cover the entirety of the team’s League Two campaign from their ups and downs throughout the season. Despite a slow start to their campaign, Wrexham finished second in the League Two standings, securing direct promotion, and fans would love to relive the memories through the docuseries.
