The fly-on-the-wall sports documentary series follows the exploits of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney and their ownership of soccer club Wrexham AFC, the world’s third-oldest professional soccer club, situated in the northern Welsh working-class town.
The first season tracked the Two Robs takeover of the club and their crash course in soccer fandom (and mostly despair) as Wrexham attempts to gain promotion from the National League. Season two continues the club’s progress as Reynolds and McElhenney sink more money into Wrexham to realize their promotion dreams.
