Upcoming Writers Strike


We're just days away from a new writers strike and while the timing worked out better than the last one, which came in the middle of the season causing a number of shows to end their seasons early. However, Unlike in 2008, there is a large number of programming that has popped up in recent years due to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime.

Right off the bat, the Strike will impact Soap Operas, Late Night talk shows, and Saturday Night Live. Another show that will likely be impacted right away, The MTV Movie and TV Awards which airs May 7th.

The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, and Jessica Jones would also be affected as all are set to begun production on their new seasons in May, along with the long-delayed Star Trek: Discovery.

Many shows premiering in May, June, and July like Game of Thrones, Twin Peaks, American Gods, and Orange Is the New Black will not be impacted by the strike as they've completed their seasons already.

The Good News is neither side wants a repeat of 2007/2008 where the strike lasted 100 days so a deal is still likely any strike could be a pretty short one.

That would be great, if it runs into June it could delay Fall premieres.

Re: Upcoming Writers Strike


A strike has been avoided thanks to a last minute deal, not much is known about this compromise deal however it appears to be only 3 years

Re: Upcoming Writers Strike


Better than nothing and a strike would have been bad news this time as the press were saying some people could lose their homes.

Re: Upcoming Writers Strike


if they were to have had a writer's strike, would that have affected the shows made up in Canada that are shown in the US?

Re: Upcoming Writers Strike


Only if they were US productions, so for example Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl would have been unable to work on scripts but Canadian Productions such as Dark Matter, Killjoys, Bellevue, etc. would be able to work on new scripts.
