wga strike

Celebrity support, no late night, and clever picket signs: The WGA writers’ strike has begun its seventh week on the front lines after an agreement couldn’t be reached on their contract with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The latest show to be postponed indefinitely is the Yellowstone spin-off 1923, as it was supposed to start filming earlier this month according to Deadline. Several television productions like The Venery of Samantha Bird, Unstable, and Hacks have shut down permanently until the strike has settled. The Duffer brothers tweeted that Stranger Things season five won’t begin production until a deal is in place. Meanwhile, production on season four of CBS’s Evil wrapped early after picketing writers disrupted filming at Brooklyn Stages. The show, however, is insisting that the decision came as a result of a cast member taking a leave of absence due to a personal family matter. As the strike continues into this week, will more shows be hindered or permanently shut down until the end of the strike? Here’s a list of shows that have been temporarily delayed because of the writers’ strike.
