Fans of the hit documentary series will have more of the Hollywood magic to look forward to after season one's success

Hollywood stardust descended on Wrexham when Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney bought the club in 2020. A hit documentary series soon followed, with the actors' combined profile helping to bring the National League club to a swathe of new audiences across the world.

Welcome to Wrexham earned glowing reviews in the United Kingdom and United States, but, according to the club's executive director Humphrey Ker, "there is so much more of the real story of Wrexham AFC to be told. The more people who want to join us on that story the better, says I."

So, with that in mind, GOAL brings you everything we know about season two so far.

Will there be a Welcome to Wrexham season 2?

Yes, there will be a second season of Welcome to Wrexham. Rob McElhenney confirmed that the second season was in the works, announcing the news on Twitter following the season one finale.

"Season two will return next year," wrote McElhenney, before jokingly adding: "I have a clause in my contract that stipulates I will not do anything less than 16 seasons of a TV show."

What is the release date of Welcome to Wrexham season 2?

The second season of Welcome to Wrexham is due for release in 2023.

The exact date is not yet clear, but logic dictates that it will be released following the conclusion of the 2022-23 season, which wraps up in May 2023. Filming will be ongoing throughout the campaign, capturing moments both on and off the field.

Season one of the series was launched in August 2022, so it seems likely that season two will follow a similar timeline. We will have to wait and see.
