After nearly five months of strike action, the Writers Guild and Hollywood studios have reached a tentative deal to end the labour withdrawal.
However, there was no deal yet for actors, who are also on strike
On Sunday, union leaders and Hollywood studios announced that they had reached a tentative agreement to end the historic screenwriters strike.
The terms of the deal were not immediately announced.
AP reports that the deal will end what would have become the longest strike in the guild’s history, and the longest Hollywood strike in more than 70 years.
The agreement could pave the way for nightly network shows including NBC‘s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and ABC‘s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to return to the air within days.
As writers prepare to crack open their laptops again, it’s far from back to business as usual in Hollywood.
Talks have not yet resumed between studios and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, leaving crew members and many others without work.
