Welcome to Wrexham Season 3: Launch Date, How to Watch, What to Expect & More

The enchanting tale of a small soccer team from North Wales has captivated American audiences so far

Alongside the growing popularity of soccer overall in the United States, with more and more Americans reportedly opting to watch Premier League football instead of catching an NHL game for example, one particularly charming story from the world of soccer has taken hold of the country’s imagination.

The much-anticipated third season of the popular series Welcome to Wrexham is set to launch in 2024, promising another exciting chapter for fans of the North Wales football club.

The series, which has gained cult status, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the club under the co-ownership of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

Despite being seemingly much more garnered towards British soccer fans, the series has generated a huge amount of hype in the US over its first two seasons, leading to the English League Two team playing pre-season tournaments stateside in front of thousands of fans.

Millions of viewers in the UK, and hordes of US sports fans are now desperate for the third season to come out. The good news is… it’s coming soon!

Welcome to Wrexham Season 3 release date

The release date for Welcome to Wrexham Season 3 is May 2, 2024. Originally scheduled for April 18th, it was pushed back by two weeks. The first two episodes titled ‘Welcome to the EFL’ and ‘Goals’ will be available on that day.

The documentary series has been well-received critically as well as commercially. It won several TV awards in its debut year including Best Sports Documentary at Critics’ Choice Documentary Awards and five Creative Arts Emmy’s.

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney will hope the success of the show will continue to run concurrently with the success of the team on the field after Wrexham recently secured their promotion to League One, the third tier of the English football pyramid.

Where to watch Welcome to Wrexham Season 3 in the US and UK

New episodes will first be exclusively available in the US on FX with Hulu streaming them in North America the following day.

While new episodes were released weekly during Season 2, details about the exact schedule for Season 3 are yet to be confirmed.

Fans in the US can stream all of the first two seasons and continue to follow season 3 as it’s released on Hulu.

Meanwhile, in the UK, Disney+ remains the exclusive home of Welcome to Wrexham.

What to expect from Welcome to Wrexham Season 3

Since its inception in August 2022, Welcome to Wrexham has focused on chronicling the journey of a small but ambitious soccer club aiming for a return to the English Football League (EFL). After falling short of their target in 2022, the club achieved a dramatic promotion in Season 2 under the increased involvement of Reynolds and McElhenney.

In Season 3, viewers can expect to follow another thrilling promotion battle as Wrexham aims for successive promotions and a spot in League One for the 2024/25 campaign. This goal was achieved with mere games to spare. Fans can follow that entire journey by streaming Season 3.

The series will continue its tradition of featuring player and fan interviews, insights from local supporters, and glimpses into matches and dressing room dynamics. It will also offer more motivational content from co-owners Reynolds and McElhenney.

Welcome to Wrexham Season 3 promises an exciting journey for sports fans worldwide.
