Jeremy Renner commemorates ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ premiere amid recovery
Jeremy Renner commemorated the Season 2 premiere of his show “Mayor of Kingstown” Sunday as he recovered from a snowplow accident that left him critically injured.
The star plays the lead character on the crime-thriller series, which released the first episode of its latest season Sunday on the Paramount+ streaming service.
“Let me know what you know think !!!” Renner tweeted.
He was hospitalized in intensive care Jan. 1 after his snowplow ran over him near his Reno-area home, according to officials. The actor, also known for portraying the superhero Hawkeye in the Marvel movies and shows, underwent surgery after suffering blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries, his representative said.
The 52-year-old Renner has shared multiple posts on social media since the incident, including thanking fans for their support two days after his hospitalization.
On Friday, Renner wished his Instagram followers “a very special night” in a short video from a hospital bed.
His sister said last week the family is “so thrilled” with the actor’s progress.
“If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn’t mess around,” Kym Renner told People. “He is crushing all the progress goals. We couldn’t feel more positive about the road ahead.”
Paramount+ premiered the first season of “Mayor of Kingstown” in 2021. The series about a powerful family in Michigan also stars Dianne Wiest and Hugh Dillon.
“I heard about (Renner’s accident) from one of the other producers,” Dillon, who co-created the show, told Deadline in an interview published Sunday.
“I saw it on the news and then he sent me a video. He’s very funny. I just think the world of that guy and I’m happy he’s surrounded by his family. Anything we can do to help, we will. That’s the biggest thing. He’s like family.”
