In a private ceremony, Ryan Reynolds received the Order of British Columbia from Lt. Gov. Janet Austin on Wednesday. The Canadian province of British Columbia gives this award.

The 47-year-old actor revealed to the Vancouver Sun that the production crew wanted to shoot the ceremony. But he brushed the offer. The actor said, “They wanted to come here,” but he said, “No.” Anyway, the Deadpool star didn’t confirm whether Season 3 of the hit documentary is now filming.

The show’s filming was paused due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. Reynolds and others resumed work after the strike ended on November 9. But it is confirmed that Welcome to Wrexham is ready for a third season and will premiere in 2024.

One instance is when the goalkeeper Christian Dibble left Wrexham in January, Reynolds sent a personal message to Dibble’s father, Andy, on Twitter. To the message, Dibble’s father said (via Mirror), “It brought a bit of a tear to my eye, really. I did not expect somebody with his fame to message me, but it meant so much to me. It was really special.”

And more than that, when star forward Paul Mullin faced injuries, McElhenney and Reynolds reached out to ensure that he was at his comfort during recovery. They even offered to fly Mullin’s family to California for support.
