If Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney buying a soccer team still feels like a fever dream to you, here’s the trailer for FX’s Welcome Wrexham, which is proof that it actually happened (unless it was all an elaborate joke and Wrexham is really an expensive mockumentary). The documentary series is about Reynolds and McElhenney’s attempt to buy a soccer team in the UK that they had no connection to and rebuild the club … and the town. It has all the elements of a good underdog story: Down on their luck, working-class town, Deadpool, and Mac from It’s Always Sunny.
These two celebrity Americans aren’t just saving a team. THEY’RE SAVING A COMMUNITY.
And in case you missed it, here’s an It’s Always Sunny/Welcome to Wrexham teaser from last year.
Welcome to Wrexham streams on FX/Hulu on August 25th.
