Following the COVID-19 pandemic, Hollywood faced setbacks due to prolonged strikes by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA guilds, causing disruptions in production schedules for various shows and movies.

This resulted in delays for both new and returning programs, such as CBS’s “Elsbeth” and ABC’s “Abbott Elementary,” moving to early 2024.

Streamers like Netflix experienced shifts too, with “Stranger Things” final season pushed to 2025, and potential delays for the second season of “Wednesday.”
