The writers strikes in Hollywood are finally at a tentative end after almost five months of picket lines.
The writers have secured better pay, residuals and guard rails over the use of AI among other things. Here are a few of the shows affected by the strikes and put behind schedule:
The Last of Us
You a big fan of that Last of Us show? Too bad go play the games. Casting was delayed due to no scripts for anyone to read.
“I discontinued all writing and writing-related work on Andor prior to midnight, May 1.” said the Star Wars showrunner Tony Gilroy. He had been dragged across the coals for initially continuing production after the strikes began.
A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight
This one’s another Game of Thrones prequel. George R. R. Martin himself confirmed the news himself. “…The producers and the studios and the networks and the streamers gave us no choice. The Guild negotiated right up to the final deadline on May 1, but it takes two to tango.”
Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel
Hold on, nobody tell these guys the strikes are over.
The show went on Hiatus and was confirmed by the Duffer Brothers. “Writing does not stop when filming begins. While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike”
Five months is a long time in kid time, they probably all look 30 now.
