‘Welcome to Wrexham’ Season 3 Delayed at FX

Welcome to Wrexham season three will have to wait a bit longer. The third installment of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s soccer docuseries will delay its premiere to early May, FX announced Thursday.

The show was originally set to premiere its third season April 18, but the release has now been pushed to May 2. FX did not give a reason for the shift.

The fly-on-the-wall sports documentary series follows Reynolds and McElhenney as they navigate their ownership of the world’s third-oldest professional soccer club in the northern Welsh town of Wrexham.

The show won five Emmy Awards for its first season in January, after concluding its second installment last December. FX confirmed season three’s renewal in November 2023.

“In 2020, Rob and Ryan teamed up to purchase the fifth tier Red Dragons in the hopes of turning the Club into an underdog story the whole world could root for,” an FX release read Thursday. “The world took notice and change is afoot. After 15 painful seasons in the National League, the Club finally achieved promotion back into the English Football League. The stakes have never been higher.”

Season three will now offer “unprecedented access on the pitch, bringing viewers inside the locker room and alongside the players, while the action is unfolding in some of the biggest matches Wrexham AFC has ever played,” the release continued.

Welcome to Wrexham airs on the linear network, then streams to Hulu the following day. The season three premiere will include the first two episodes.
