‘Welcome to Wrexham’ release date confirmed as Reynolds and McElhenney warned | Football | Sport

The release date for Season 3 of ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ has been confirmed, and it’s a big change from the previous two. The show, which follows the League Two team owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McEhenney, will return on April 18.

Since buying the club in 2020, the pair have set high hopes for Wrexham, who have already seen great success, including promotion back to the Football League and holding their own in the FA Cup. Unlike the first two series, which aired in August 2021 and September 2022, series 3 will start in April while Wrexham’s current season is still ongoing.

With six games left this season, Wrexham are currently third and could be promoted to League One along with Mansfield Town and Stockport. But they could also drop down the table, with MK Dons, Barrow, and Crewe Alexandra close behind. Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson believes his team deserved a penalty in their 2-0 win over Mansfield, despite the controversial decision. The win moves Wrexham level on points with Mansfield and one point behind Stockport in the League Two table.

“The harder you work, the luckier you get,” said Parkinson. “We worked so hard today. I haven’t completely seen the penalty decision back but listen, I think we were due one of those. We haven’t had one in a while and some you get, some you don’t. We’ve got that one today.

“I’m sure Nigel when he looks at it might be disappointed but over the course of the season, we’ve been saying as a staff that we’ve been due for something to go for us because we had the last two home games here where we’ve absolutely dominated teams and nothing fell for us so we were due one.”

The release of Season 3 of the ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ documentary will coincide with the publication of the club’s financial accounts. Wrexham spent £6.9 million on wages during their promotion-winning season from the National League.

The financial gamble paid off, with Wrexham winning the division and securing automatic promotion ahead of Notts County. Wrexham co-owner Rob Reynolds has warned that the club’s long-term future is at stake if they fail to win promotion to the Football League this season.

“We’re heavily invested in building this club, the stadium itself, and if we don’t get promoted this year, the club is completely, totally and wholly unsustainable,” Reynolds said. “So its really ratcheted up the pressure, not just for us but for the players on the field, the people in the community. This year we have to get promoted.”
