The WGA strike with the studios is over. When do the shows return?

Screenwriters can return to work for the first time since leaving on May 2, but 65,000 film actors remain on strike and negotiations are not in sight.

LOS ANGELES – The The writers’ strike is officially over from Wednesday midnight. When will your favorite shows return?

Screenwriters can return to work for the first time since leaving on May 2, but 65,000 film actors remain on strike and negotiations are not in sight. (Technically, the 11,500-member Writers Guild of America has yet to ratify its contract with the studios, but that seems inevitable.)

The suspension of the actors’ strike will prevent many projects from returning to normality. Definitely paused productions Films like Deadpool 3, Yellowjackets and Quentin Tarantino’s next film still have to wait for the actors to come to an agreement with the studios.


Late night talk shows were the first to be affected at the start of the attack, and they may be among the first to take to the air again now. NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and CBS’ “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” could return within days.

However, they will return with a lack of guests. The actors’ strike limits commercial appearances, which are the lifeblood of late-night shows.

“Saturday Night Live” could potentially return for its 49th season. Its writers could soon begin working on sketches, and its actors could appear because they are working under a different contract that is not covered by the actors’ strike, although as union members they may be wary of doing so.

Shows returning while actors are still demonstrating could prove controversial, as was the case with the planned resumption of daytime shows “The Drew Barrymore Show” and “The Talk.” These plans were later abandoned.

One show that will likely come back soon is “Real Time with Bill Maher.” However, the host planned to return without writers ultimately postponed As soon as last week’s negotiations stopped.

What about Stranger Things and Superman?

Writers’ rooms for scripts shows that it has been shut down Shows that aired at the start of the strike, including Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” Apple TV+’s “Severance” and ABC’s “Abbott Elementary,” are also expected to be quickly reactivated. But since there are no actors to act out the scripts, long delays between page and screen are inevitable.

Film writers will also get back to work on their slower schedules, although those working on scripts or late edits for already planned films – including “Deadpool 3” and “Superman: Legacy” – will certainly be eager to avoid further action Release date delays.

Director Quentin Tarantino’s 10th film, The Movie Critic, is among the scripts whose makers are waiting for the actors to return to the sets.

When are “Drew Barrymore” and other daytime shows coming back?

Barrymore’s planned return to her daytime television show became one Rally point for pickets earlier this month, which prompted her to do so cancel their plans. “The Talk” and “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” which also employ some screenwriters, have also canceled plans to return.

Barrymore and the other shows have not announced their return dates.


Absolutely. Networks had to get creative with fall programming from Opening up international shows, game shows and more sport. But there are still some new series and Films are coming out this year.

Standout newcomers include a “Walking Dead” show focused on fan favorite Daryl Dixon and a “John Wick” prequel series now airing. A new one is still about to premiere Jesse L. Martin NBC series“Irrational” and a sequel to “Frasier.”

The PBS The lineup remains largely untouched. It includes a documentary series by Ken Burns, “The American Buffalo,” and a drama series about the lives of people who fought in World War II. The network also has factual shows covering Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the Houston Astros cheating scandal and the way animals adapt to human-caused habitat changes.

Cinemas will have a mix of Oscar contenders and action films. Martin Scorsese “Flower Moon Killer” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert DeNiro and Lily Gladstone will be released in October. November brings the latest Marvel film “The Marvels” and the prequel “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes.”
