Stranger Things and Fast & Furious 11 are top priority titles for studios after the WGA strike. The strike lasted 148 days, from May 2 through September 27. The strike addressed fair compensation, AI regulation, and streaming residuals. With a tentative agreement reached with AMPTP, writers can now return back.
According to a report from Variety, several studios have specific projects they plan to focus on writing while waiting for the SAG-AFTRA strike to end and production to resume. Netflix is prioritizing Stranger Things season 5 and Wednesday season 2, while Universal is giving highest priority to Fast & Furious 11, which is a crucial part of the multi-part finale of the action blockbuster franchise.
The report includes priority projects from various companies, such as Paramount and Warner Bros in the movie industry and ABC and Fox in the television industry. Some notable projects mentioned are Star Trek and Rainbow Six from Paramount, The Batman 2 from Warner Bros, Abbott Elementary and Grey’s Anatomy from ABC, and 9-1-1: Lone Star, Law & Order, One Chicago, and FBI from Fox.
