From the very start, Hidden Remote has been keeping our readers updated on the SAG-AFTRA strike. Additionally, you can read a full breakdown that explains why the strike is happening, and more, here.
The SAG-AFTRA strike has rocked the entertainment world as filming delays for both movies and series quickly began to roll in after the first strike from the WGA on May 19, 2023. And, on Aug. 9, the strike reached 100 days, officially becoming the second longest strike in WGA history.
The WGA and the AMPTP decided to sit down to renegotiate once more on Friday, Aug. 4, but that, unfortunately did not end well. Both parties continue to disagree on a deal. So, what does this mean? When will the WGA and the AMPTP meet again? Here’s what we know.
When is the SAG-AFTRA Strike going to be over?
Now this is the million dollar question we all have. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to even guess as this is not something one can schedule or predict. However, the latest, as reported by Deadline, is that the AMPTP and the WGA are set to resume talks today, Friday, Aug. 11.
Keep in mind, resuming talks doesn’t necessarily mean the strike will end right then and there. For starters, both parties need to come to an agreement. And, from the way things have been going, I’m not very optimistic. But let’s say that a deal is reached, there are still a few steps that’ll need to be taken for the strikes to be officially over. And once that happens (hopefully sooner rather than later), we’ll see just how our favorite shows and movies have been affected by the SAG-AFTRA strikes.
Some of the most popular shows who have delayed production or filming, include The Last of Us season 2, House of the Dragon season 2, Deadpool 3, Blade, and numerous others.
