Disney’s FX has released a new trailer for the new series, “Welcome to Wrexham”, which is a docuseries tracking the dreams and people of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town’s historic yet struggling football club.
In 2020, Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) teamed up to purchase the team in the hopes of turning the club into an underdog story the whole world could root for. The worry? Rob and Ryan have no experience in football or working with each other. That said, they are serious about their investment in Wrexham, improving the club and doing right by the townspeople.
Founded in 1864, the “Red Dragons” are one of the oldest football teams in the world and currently compete in the National League, the fifth tier of the English football league system.
From Hollywood to Wales, the pitch to the locker room, the front office to the pub, Welcome to Wrexham will track Rob and Ryan’s crash course in football club ownership and the inextricably connected fates of a team and a town counting on two actors to bring some serious hope and change to a community that could use it.
Check out the trailer below:
The new FX Docuseries will premiere on Wednesday, 24th August 2022, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX, with episodes dropping the next day. The series will also be released as a Star Original internationally and has already been confirmed to be coming to Disney+ in the UK and Ireland on the 25th of August 2022.
