‘Deadpool 3,’ ‘Stranger Things’ & More Movies & TV Shows Affected By The SAG-AFTRA & WGA Strike

Has Hollywood really shut down? The actors’ and writers’ unions are striking simultaneously for the first time in more than 60 years, causing major movies and shows to halt production. From anticipated sequels including “Deadpool 3” and “Beetlejuice 2” to TV hits “Stranger Things” and “Cobra Kai,” fans will likely have to wait longer than expected for their big and small-screen faves. SAG-AFTRA members hit the picket lines on July 14 after failed negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. Both unions are taking a stand on a range of issues including AI use and streaming residuals. Comcast, the corporation which owns our parent company NBCUniversal, is one of the entertainment companies represented by the AMPTP. Some employees of the NBC News Group are represented by SAG-AFTRA.
