The start date of ‘Welcome to Wrexham”s third season has been confirmed by the club, on the third anniversary of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney becoming co-owners.

In January, the hit documentary series won five Emmy Awards for its second season – with star Reynolds accepting one of the prizes whilst in character as Deadpool.

Previous seasons have been released in the autumn, once the football season has been wrapped up, and Wrexham’s fate has been confirmed.

But after news that the next series would be released in spring, it has now been confirmed that it will be available to watch whilst the north Wales club are still fighting for promotion to League One.

The club shared a poster for the new season, along with the caption: ‘Welcome (back) to Wrexham! Season 3 kicks off April 18 on FX. Stream on @hulu.’

The announcement came on the third anniversary of Reynolds and McElhenney becoming co-owners of Wrexham AFC, which marks the start of ‘Welcome to Wrexham’, a documentary which showed the team on and off the pitch.  

Season one of the show – which covered the 2021-22 National League season – aired in late August 2022, whilst season two episodes were released the following September after they earned their promotion to the Football League in the spring of 2023.

But when the third season is released later this year, Wrexham will still have two games left to play of the 2023-24 campaign, firstly away to Crewe Alexandra on April 20, and then at home to Stockport County seven days later. 

At last month’s Emmys, ‘Welcome to Wrexham’, which is shown on Disney+ in the UK, was crowned the winner in the following categories: Cinematography For A Reality Program, Unstructured Reality Program, Directing For A Reality Program, Picture Editing For An Unstructured Reality Program and Sound Mixing For A Reality Program.

Wrexham’s co-chairmen shared a video on social media where they accepted one of the awards – with Reynolds appearing as Deadpool, and referring to himself as ‘Mr Lively’, the surname of his wife Blake. 

‘Whoo! Wow, umm… Mr Lively couldn’t be here to accept this broken Emmy, so he sent me on his behalf,’ Reynolds began.

‘First and foremost, Wrexham, we love you. Thank you for letting Rob and the other guy tell your story. Cymru am byth, b****es.

‘I’d also like to thank The Academy for this honour and for not asking us to attend the televised awards show with the real celebrities.

‘I’d also like to thank FX and Disney for their support and in exchange Mr Lively promises to not f**k up my next movie. 

‘Lastly, The Oscars, you’re on notice motherf***ers.’

Wrexham currently sit fourth in League Two, and host Bradford City on Saturday afternoon.
