The shows and TV series affected by the WGA writers’ strike
At 12:01 on May 2, 2023, the strike officially began Writers Guild of America of 2023 and the failure of the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) to reach an acceptable solution to the negotiations that began this week will have a profound knock-on effect on the television landscape, especially on late night shows and series TV.
The WGA writers’ strike of 2023 will hit late night nights the most, but it will also halt production on several streaming series after failing to meet requests from WGA members. With writers marching from coast to coast, this is the biggest strike in 15 years, with no clear end in sight.

The political satire talk show aired on ABC will be paused, so fans of the particular humor of Jimmy Kimmel they won’t get their daily dose of his affable musings on current events for at least two weeks, if not more.
Meanwhile, ABC will air reruns of past episodes in JKL’s absence now and for the foreseeable future. The Hollywood writers’ strike could hinder the return of Kimmel for quite some time and, for this reason, updates are awaited.
