The Actor's Strike Is Over! SAG-AFTRA & AMPTP Reach Deal On New Agreement

Last night, the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) met with the Association of Motion Picture Television Producers (AMPTP) for another meeting. This time, the leaders of both groups left with the brightest result.

After 118 days of the actors guild being out on strike, SAG-AFTRA and the studios finally came to a tentative agreement that officially ends the strike as of today: Thursday, November 9th at 12:01 AM PT. This marks the longest actors strike against the film & TV studios in Hollywood history.

What does this new SAG-AFTRA agreement mean for our favorite actors?

This new agreement means we can see our favorite actors & the Hollywood community be able to return back to work & production in just a matter of weeks.

This also means that actors will now be able to properly promote their new projects under the new agreement.

Plus, this new agreement will see the first-ever protections for actors against artificial intelligence and a historic pay increase.

What to expect next.

The SAG-AFTRA will now be working to ratify its new agreement with its 160,000 members, which is looking very likely to go into effect quickly.

Actors & the studios gotten both increasingly restless and also weary for the Summer 2024 box office and the new slate of TV programming for 2023-2024.

We couldn't be more relived and glad to see the two groups finally come to an agreement joining the Writer's Guild of America on the other side of the deal!
