Imagine being a fan of a small-town football team that has been struggling to survive for years. Then out of nowhere, one of Hollywood’s biggest stars buys it. Soon after, the fortunes of that club along with the entire town change. This is the premise of the Welcome to Wrexham docuseries that explores the journey of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney as they take over ownership of Wrexham AFC.

Season 1 of this thrilling narrative premiered on Disney+ last year and was a goal. Now Ryan Reynolds is back with Season 2 of the show with an official release date. While the first season showcased the owners assembling the team, season two will provide deeper insights into their interactions with the townsfolk. It will also feature cameos and interviews from players on their unexpected transformation.

As reported by Deadline, FX has confirmed that the second season will land on the 12th of September, 2023. It will subsequently be released on Disney+ and Hulu just a day later. The series has earned quite a name for itself thanks to the Deadpool actor’s star power. Wrexham AFC was stuck in the fifth tier of the soccer league, but thanks to the co-owners investment, it is now well on its way to the National League, along with an upcoming tour of the US.

Moreover, the sheer promotion that master of wit, Ryan Reynolds showcased for the first season of the show has borne fruits. The town of Wrexham, which was staring at oblivion, is now a tourist hotspot. The economy, culture, and people of the town have expressed gratitude to Reynolds, which would also be touched upon in the second season. After an incredible story that landed him his first Emmy, the Free Guy actor would look to maintain content brevity in the next one as well.

Ryan Reynolds does not seem to be stopping anytime soon with Wrexham. The 46-year-old actor has gone to great lengths to ensure the upliftment of his team. His brilliant marketing has been attracting a lot of investors and sports sponsorship deals for Wrexham AFC. Deals, as such, are necessary to ensure enhanced performance and higher rankings. The team now has a golden chance of making it to the playoff spot for the soccer National League.

However, this may take a toll on his other projects. None of the actor’s projects are as anticipated as his dream collaboration with Hugh Jackman for Deadpool 3. Marvel Studios would be looking to win over fans with its first-ever R-rated debut. The movie has already been delayed as a result of the SAG-AFTRA strikes and as such fans are worried about its production. And Reynolds’s fixation with Wrexham might cause a headache for Marvel, as the actor may look to include Wrexham cameos in the movie.
