MCU star Jeremy Renner returns in first trailer for Mayor of Kingstown season 3

Jeremy Renner in Mayor of Kingston season 3.

On January 1, 2023, Jeremy Renner was badly wounded when his snowplow crushed him. Renner’s injuries, including almost 40 broken bones, were so severe that it was miraculous he survived, much less recovered. But now, 16 months later, Renner’s comeback begins in the first trailer for the third season of his Paramount+ original series, Mayor of Kingstown.

It’s unclear if the show plans to explain any physical limitations that Renner’s character, Mike McLusky, may have after Renner’s real-life accident. Yet there are a few scenes in the trailer where Mike appears to be getting into some fights. But the real battles ahead are the ones that not even Mike can win with his fists.

Mike isn’t actually the elected mayor of Kingstown, but he is the defacto leader who can bring together factions from both sides of the law and find some way to resolve their issues. However, that’s the kind of power that only matters when everyone is playing by the same set of rules.

The Russian mob never agreed to those terms, and they’re the new faction that’s setting up shop in Kingstown. The Russians are also announcing their presence by setting off massive explosions around town, almost as if they’re daring anyone to challenge them.

With the Russians comes a more personal threat from Mike’s past in prison. But if we’ve learned anything from the first two seasons, it’s that Mike isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty if he has to. The smart money will always be on Mike coming out on top in a fight.

Mayor of Kingstown season 3 will premiere on Paramount+ on June 2.

The Sanderson sisters smiling while at a fair in Hocus Pocus 2.

Nearly three decades ago, Disney released the original Hocus Pocus into theaters with Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker as the Sanderson sisters, an evil trio of witches from the 17th century. Next year would have been the 30th anniversary, but the Sandersons simply couldn't wait another year before making their big comeback on Disney+. Now, Disney has released the first teaser trailer for the long-awaited sequel, Hocus Pocus 2.

Midler is reprising her role as Winnie Sanderson, alongside Najimy as Mary Sanderson and Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah Sanderson. The sisters were vanquished and seemingly killed in the original Hocus Pocus. But they've never let death stop them before. The trailer also introduces the teenagers who accidentally bring the Sandersons back to life: Becca (Whitney Peak) and Cassie (Lilia Buckingham). These wannabe Wiccans are messing with powers beyond their control. And they will have to team up with their friend and fellow student, Izzy (Belissa Escobedo), to stop the Sandersons' new reign of terror.
