Produce Netflix’s fifth and final season Strange things was delayed due to labor unrest between the Writers Guild of America and the Union of Film and Television Producers.
Creators Matt and Ross Duffer shared the news in a tweet Saturday from the scriptwriters’ official Twitter account for the show. “Duffers here. Writing doesn’t stop when filming begins. While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, that’s not possible during this time of strike. We hope to reach a fair settlement soon so we can all get back to work. Until then – over and over again. #wgastrong,” they wrote.
Sources at Netflix have confirmed that production on the super-large fifth and final installment of the series will be pushed to a definite time but declined to comment on the record.
The news comes after the first week of a writers’ strike, as the association is seeking transparency about viewership from streamers, increased floor wages and anti-virus protections. small rooms and the use of artificial intelligence.
Some productions with scripts have been discontinued, either by choice or by disruption due to the absence of a host or scriptwriter on set or by select people. Apple comedy production pillage was interrupted on Friday by featured writers choosing the Bel-Air super mansion to be used for filming, for example.
Netflix confirmed in early 2022 that the fifth season of Strange things will be the end of it. The Duffer brothers have an overall deal with streamers, and prior to the strike, they were working on a spin-off as well as an animated series set in the same world, alongside projects other unrelated. The production delay means that there will again be a sizable gap between the seasons. While season two aired a year after the first, there was a gap of almost three years between season three and season four with the latter being split into two seasons.
