The goal? To revive the Wrexham AFC's fortunes. After a harrowing season 1 (with defeat in both the FA Trophy final at Wembley and the promotion play-off semi-finals), season 2 saw fans from all over the globe tune into Wrexham live streams as the team gained promotion to League Two.

Season 3 picks up the story as 'Super' Paul Mullin, Ollie Palmer and Rob Lainton take on the big boys in hopes of continuing their wild ride all the way to League 1. Read on to find out how to watch "Welcome to Wrexham season 3" online and from anywhere...

What can we expect from 'Welcome to Wrexham season 3'?

Hard to say as the football season is yet to conclude but it is fair to say that there is some dramatic content in store including the arrival of Republic of Ireland international James McClean, Will Boyle and Arthur Okonkwo, the departure of popular veteran goalkeeper Ben Foster, cameo appearances from various Hollywood celebrities, and a huge amount of jeopardy - will Wrexham AFC struggle to stay in League Two or thrive? Here's a clue, it's one or the other.

Did Ryan Reynolds tell Blake Lively about investing in Wrexham?

Ryan Reynolds (to Rob McIlhenny). "I remember after you reached out about this absolutely insane idea seeing Blake (Lively, his actor wife) and saying, 'Now, I have bad news and I have really bad news. The bad news is that I slipped into someone's DMs again and... the really bad news is that, you know, I might have bought half of a fifth tier national league football club in Wales.'"

McIlhenny: "And what was her reaction?"

Reynolds: "Not good Rob, no, not great... we're still working through that one."
