Jeremy Renner is ready to return to acting.

In fact, he’s set to get back to the set of Paramount+’s Mayor of Kingstown in about a week, just days after the one-year anniversary of the snowplow accident that nearly took his life.

“It’s been a really wonderful, wonderfully busy year, and I think I’m ready,” he said of returning for season three during an interview Sunday night on CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage. “I think I’m strong enough. We’ll see. I mean, I literally go back in a week. But I’ll be doing my best, trying my hardest.”

Renner also has been busy working on an album, Love and Titanium, which drops in January. The album was inspired by his recovery process following the Jan. 1, 2023 incident, and the first single, “Weight,” will be released on the one-year anniversary.

“Music has always been pretty cathartic and healing for me regardless anyway,” Renner told CNN hosts Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper. “This is more of a narrative of life and death and the recovery of all last year. So it’s more of a journal entry so that the music crosses a lot of different genres.”

He said he really started thinking seriously about doing the album over the summer.

“We just started in considering it” he said. “I wasn’t really strong enough to stand up to the microphone at that point.… It was wonderfully healing, I think for even the people I wrote it with who are all my friends. All of my recovery has been — the better I got, the better everybody else got. So the music became also a narrative of that.”

Renner said he was celebrating the new year in Reno, Nevada, with all of the family who was with him a year ago.

“We have a lot to celebrate this year and kind of recorrect what happened last year, and I really feel pretty blessed by it,” he said.

Renner also reflected on what would have happened had things gone differently.

“I’m just so blessed that I had so many things to live for. You know, I have a giant family. I have a 10-year-old daughter,” he said. “I would have disappointed and and really messed up a lot of people’s lives if I would have passed. And so there’s a lot for me to get better for.”
