Welcome to Wrexham is the latest football documentary series taking the world by storm.
The TV show follows the trials and tribulations of Welsh side Wrexham A.F.C after being purchased by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
Season one of the show incorporates their takeover of the side in September 2020 and the resulting 18 months as the club chased promotion to League Two.
The first season consisted of 18 episodes with the finale airing on October 12, 2022 with many fans of Welcome to Wrexham left asking the same question.
Will there be a second season of Welcome to Wrexham?
Just a week after the season one finale aired, Wrexham owners Reynolds and McElhenney took to social media to confirm there will be a second season of the hit show.
“We can also confirm there will a season two of Welcome to Wrexham for our millions of new fans,” Reynolds said in a video posted to Twitter.
Season one came to a close after Wrexham’s 2021/22 campaign ended on a sad note with the club losing a playoff semifinal against Grimsby Town 5-4.
Despite the disappointment, Wrexham seem to be heading in the right direction and season two will follow the club’s 2022/23 campaign in the National League.
Wrexham have started the new season in fine form and are up at the right end of the table, meaning season two of Welcome to Wrexham could well have a happier ending.
