FX’s Welcome to Wrexham has officially been renewed for a third season, and there is already a ton of exciting news regarding the sports documentary series. Playing like something of a real-life Ted Lasso, Welcome to Wrexham concerns actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney as they buy the struggling Welsh soccer club, Wrexham A.F.C., and hope to turn around its fortunes. Noted for its poignancy, drama, and heart, the documentary series has already proven to be a smash through its first two seasons, and helps fill the void left by the aforementioned Ted Lasso.
In its relatively short tenure on the air, Welcome to Wrexham has already snagged a heap of critical praise, as well as two Critics’ Choice TV Awards and a slew of Emmy Award nominations. The first season quickly beget a second, and its popularity continued to soar as the real-life story began to find a second gear. Sports documentary series have become all the rage in recent years, but Welcome to Wrexham has something unique going for it in the form of its star-studded cast and its gripping personal drama that far exceeds the usual on-field excitement that other shows can muster.

Welcome To Wrexham Has Been Renewed For Season 3
Even as its second season drew to a close, FX renewed Welcome to Wrexham for a third season. Mid-season renewals are a rare sign of confidence in an existing series, and only the most popular programs are given the green light so quickly. Welcome to Wrexham season 3 has everything going for it already, and the quick renewal might be a sign that FX is dedicated to the long-term success of their documentary hit.
Welcome To Wrexham Season 3 Production Status
As was the case with the first two seasons, Welcome to Wrexham season 3 will be helmed by the star duo of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. Not only does the pair serve as the face of the program, but their real-life financial interest in the team makes for high drama. Though an exact date hasn’t been established yet, season 3 is slated for a 2024 release. Being a documentary series, a filming timeline is much harder to establish since the show will likely shoot and edit until a story materializes.
Welcome To Wrexham Season 3 Cast
Pinning down a cast for a documentary series is rather difficult, but it can be fully expected that Rob McElhenny and Ryan Reynolds will be back to lead the cast. Additionally, the Wrexham A.F.C. players also play an important role in the narrative, and the fluctuating lineup of strikers, goalies, forwards, and defenders will likely be slightly different in season 3 as the team makes personnel moves. Similarly, the series employs interviews with various Wrexham natives, and that lineup of fans changes from episode to episode. Wrexham A.F.C. executive Humphrey Kerr and team manager Phil Parkinson will also likely return.
Welcome To Wrexham Season 3 Story
Sports movies and shows are filled with lovable underdogs, but Welcome to Wrexham season 3 will continue the story of real-life underdogs as they attempt to overcome impossible odds. Season 2 ended on a euphoric note as the long-relegated Wrexham team finally won their way back into the official league with a decisive 3-1 victory. However, that massive victory was only the beginning for the beloved club, as Wrexham A.F.C. will now face even tougher competition on their way to legitimacy. Welcome to Wrexham season 3 is yet another gear shift for the series, and will likely deliver the same charm but will have entirely new stakes.
