The six-month production shutdown due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes is officially over today, and TV studios are not wasting a minute, with TV series — mainly returning broadcast shows going into full prep immediately.
As Deadline reported Wednesday night, just minutes after the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike was announced after the actors guild and the studios reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, TV casts and crews started receiving notifications for tentative start dates in late November and early December.
Here is a running list of the TV series that will be leading the way in return to production. We will be updating it continuously as new production dates are set, including for series like Netflix’s Stranger Things, Max’s The Penguin, Welcome To Derry and Hacks and Paramount Network’s Yellowstone. All dates are tentative and subject to change.
For now, it looks like NBC/Warner Bros TV’s NIGHT COURT would be kicking off the post-strike production restart with a 11/15 target return to production.
Other series looking at a tentative late-November production start:
BOB HEARTS ABISHOLA
FBI: MOST WANTED
LAW & ORDER
LAW & ORDER: SVU
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
CRIMINAL MINDS: EVOLUTION
Early December start:
THE CLEANING LADY,
NOT DEAD YET
