Since the second season of Mayor of Kingstown began filming, a lot has happened. Star Jeremy Renner was hurt in a snowplow accident while attempting to save his nephew, and this was even before the Hollywood writers’ and performers’ strikes halted all film and television production. Thirty bones were broken, including an eye socket, a shoulder, a knee, and eight ribs, but he lived. Just two weeks before the second season premiered, on January 1, 2023, that had occurred.
It wasn’t until September, during the double strikes that hit the industry, that the Taylor Sheridan-produced series received an official renewal for a third season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount was just holding off on announcing the renewal until after its star had fully healed from his wounds, which had occurred months earlier.
After recovering for a year, Renner is finally returning to work and even using his snowplow once more, and production is starting. What is known about the upcoming third season of Mayor of Kingstown is as follows.
