Last week, Disney announced that a new special, “Jeremy Renner: The Diane Sawyer Interview — A Story of Terror, Survival and Triumph,” will air on Thursday, April 6, on ABC and stream the next day on Hulu and Disney+ in the United States.
The interview was noticeably missing this morning on Disney+; however, the special has now been added to Disney+ in the United States and Canada. The news was shared on social media, which you can see below:

It’s important to note that the post does say to check local availability. The interview is also available on Hulu in the US. No international release date for other countries, such as the UK, Australia etc, has been announced.
In the special, Jeremy Renner gives the first interview since his near-fatal snow plow accident with ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer. The exclusive also features harrowing recollections of the accident from family members of Renner’s, including his nephew he was trying to protect, and behind-the-scenes snapshots from his ongoing journey to recovery.
The special airs a week before Renner’s new series “Rennervations” on Disney+. The actor is expected to appear in person at the “Rennervations” world premiere, taking place April 11 at Los Angeles’ Regency Village Theater which will be his first press event since the accident.
