Disney has announced that the upcoming FX original series, “Welcome to Wrexham”, is coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Thursday 25th August 2022.
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. Welcome to Wrexham will be executive produced by McElhenney, Reynolds, Nick Frenkel, and John Henion.
“Welcome To Wrexham” will premiere in the United States on Wednesday 24th August 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX and it will be available to stream the next day on Hulu. The premiere will include the first two episodes.
