The conclusion of the Hollywood Actors Strike is marked by an agreement that is poised to have a lasting impact on AI and streaming for decades.
On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists reached a provisional agreement with the studios, bringing an end to a strike that lasted for 118 days.
After more than six months, both Hollywood actors and writers find themselves free from strikes. The much-anticipated resolution in the industry’s stormiest season in decades materialized with a late Wednesday agreement, putting an end to the longest strike ever for film and television actors, lasting nearly four months.
The approval of the three-year contract now awaits the green light from the board of the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists and its members in the coming days. However, the union leadership has officially declared that the strike will conclude at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, reactivating all facets of production for the first time since spring.
