SAG-AFTRA agrees to a new deal with networks ending the 118-day strike



The Long Night is finally at an end! The SAG-AFTRA, which has been fighting for the rights of actors for 118 long days, has managed to secure a new deal with the members of the AMPTP. This is good news for Hollywood lovers, as all the films and TV shows that have been waiting for production and renewal can now continue to do so, albeit with better working conditions and deals.

The SAG-AFTRA’s longest strike comes to an end

The actors’ strike that halted the filming industry was the longest actors’ strike against the film and TV studios in Hollywood history. According to Variety, the 118-day strike officially ended at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday.

The agreement was unanimously approved by the union’s negotiating committee. The SAG-AFTRA national board will next consider and approve the agreement on Friday.

The last few days were devoted to finalizing the agreement, which will result in a historic pay increase for actors as well as the first-ever safeguards against artificial intelligence. Most minimums under the agreement will rise by 7%, which is 2% more than the increases granted to the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America.

Production will now begin after 118 days of strike

A number of TV and movie shows had been stalled due to the ongoing strikes. While shows like House of the Dragon got a boost after the end of the WGA strike, shows like The Last of Us will now be able to commence production on their next seasons. A number of famous actors had joined the strikes including Pedro Pascal, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Cynthia Nixon, Leslie Odom Jr. Demi Moore, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jon Hamm, and Mark Ruffalo.
