The third season of Welcome to Wrexham was supposed to premiere on FX next month, but the network pushed it back to a later date. Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds will continue their adventure as co-owners of the underdog British soccer team when Welcome to Wrexham returns in May.

The show’s third season was scheduled for the April 18 return on FX, but the network delayed its release date without giving a reason for the move. Season 3 will now premiere on May 2 with two new episodes, airing on the linear network before streaming on Hulu the next day.

Welcome To Wrexham chronicles the journey that McElhenney and Reynolds embarked on after making an unorthodox decision to purchase one of the world’s oldest soccer clubs in the working-class Welsh town of Wrexham.

According to FX’s press release, Season 3 will offer “unprecedented access on the pitch, bringing viewers inside the locker room and alongside the players, while the action is unfolding in some of the biggest matches Wrexham AFC has ever played.”

Welcome To Wrexham was renewed for Season 3 last November, and FX Entertainment president Nick Grad described its success as “a testament to the courage and vision of Rob and Ryan, the dogged spirit of the Red Dragons, and the hope and devotion of the people of Wrexham.”
