Jeremy Renner's Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Premieres amid Star's Recovery from Snowplow Accident

The wait is over for the highly-anticipated second season of Mayor of Kingstown. The first episode of season two premiered on Sunday as the show's

main star, Jeremy Renner, continues to recover from a Jan. 1 snowplow accident that left him in "critical but stable condition." Renner, 51, has portrayed Mike McLusky on

the series — which follows a family of power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan, where the only thriving industry is the business of incarceration — since its November 2021

premiere. RELATED: Jeremy Renner Speaks Out for First Time Since Accident, Shares Photo from Hospital Bed The premiere episode came about after Renner sustained

blunt chest trauma and orthopedic injuries after being involved in a snowplow accident on his property in Reno, Nevada, and was airlifted to a hospital. He underwent surgery on

Jan. 2, and afterward, he remained in the intensive care unit in critical but stable condition at the time. A rep told PEOPLE on Jan. 3 that Renner was "moving snow from

his driveway on Sunday so that his family members could depart his home after spending New Years together. He was also helping clear out the snow of his neighbor's home as

everyone up there had been without power for 24 hours and there had been a large snowfall." "So he was helping everyone in trying to clear out the snow so people could get

out," they added.
