Actor Jeremy Renner is finally back home after a serious snowplow accident on New Year’s Day that required surgery and left him hospitalized for more than two weeks.
Renner, 52, made the announcement that he had been released on Twitter. He did so by responding to a tweet from the show Mayor of Kingstown, starring Renner and created by Taylor Sheridan of Yellowstone fame.
“Outside my brain fog in recovery, I was very excited to watch episode 201 with my family at home,” Renner wrote.

Renner had to be airlifted to the hospital after being run over by his snowcat near his home in Reno, Nevada. He was trying to play the role of Good Samaritan and help someone get their stuck vehicle out of the snow at the time of the accident.
His sister, Kym Renner, recently told People that the family was “thrilled” with the progress he was making since the accident and surgery.
“If anyone knows Jeremy, he is a fighter and doesn’t mess around,” Kym Renner said at the time. “He is crushing all of the progress goals. We couldn’t feel more positive about the road ahead.”
Renner has had a long career in movies and television and is the oldest of seven children. His father managed a bowling alley in the family’s hometown of Modesto, California, where Renner attended junior college.
He first focused on studying computer science and criminology before deciding to take a drama class as an elective. After that, he decided to pursue acting, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Among his credits: The movie Wind River, also written by Sheridan, as well as The Hurt Locker, The Town, Kill the Messenger, as well as portraying Hawkeye in the Marvel franchise.
