Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds rip off It’s Always Sunny in new teaser for Welcome To Wrexham documentary

The gang from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia have descended on rainy Wrexham to promote a new show – well, sort of.

As we all know by now, Hollywood legends Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds have branched out from their acting careers and, in the most random move ever, have bought local Welsh football team Wrexham FC.

Rob and Ryan visited Wrexham to check out the grounds and speak to UK press about the move – where Ryan casually dropped an F-Bomb on live TV and then apologised profusely.

But, in what might be lesser-known news, the pair are creating a documentary series about what the major buy-out means to the team and the local community.

The first teaser trailer for the documentary series, titled Welcome To Wrexham, has now dropped, and Always Sunny fans will find it very familiar.

In the teaser, which begins with the iconic Always Sunny theme music, a group – or gang, as it were – stand in a pub adorned with Wrexham FC flags and scarves, watching TV.

The group includes a blonde woman, three tall men and another man who can only be described as Danny DeVito’s Welsh Doppelganger.

As they stare into the screen, the real cast of It’s Always Sunny – Rob, Kaitlin Olson, Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day and Danny – stare back, looking confused.

Back in Wrexham, Dee Reynolds’ Welsh counterpart asks, in Welsh: ‘What are they looking at?,’ to which the rest of the Wrexham gang respond: ‘Shut up, bird!’

The Metaverse expands even further as the next scene shows Ryan and Rob sitting in a bar watching the two gangs observe each other, when Ryan turns to Rob and asks: ‘Am I in a promo for [It’s Always Sunny] right now?’

To which Rob responds with a simple lie: ‘No.’

The trailer ends with the It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia logo being replaced with the words ‘It’s Never Sunny In Wrexham’, before transforming into the docuseries’ proper title, Welcome To Wrexham.

Welcome To Wrexham is set to arrive on FX and Hulu in 2022, and has been approved for at least two series.

The documentary will tell the story of how Ryan and Rob bought the team in the hopes of turning the club ‘into an underdog story the whole world could root for’, despite having no experience in football or even working with each other.

An official synopsis states: ‘From Hollywood to Wales, the pitch to the locker room, the front office to the pub, Welcome to Wrexham will track Rob and Ryan’s crash course in football club ownership and the inextricably connected fates of a team and a town counting on two actors to bring some serious hope and change to a community that could use it.’

As well as Welcome To Wrexham, Rob is currently enjoying being the creator of the world’s longest-running live action comedy series, as Always Sunny celebrates its 15th season.

In celebration of the milestone, the cast have launched a new podcast series, The Always Sunny Podcast, where they look back at the earliest episodes and discuss how they were inspired – and what they would change.

In the latest episode, Glenn revealed they almost quit the show in the first series after a row with FX about a planned paedophile priest character they wanted to include.

Welcome To Wrexham will be released in 2022.
