The WGA strike could affect NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i.
The Writers Guild of America recently went on strike in order to demand better pay from Hollywood.
The Writers Guild of America’s strike affects any television show that employs WGA members.
It has already resulted in the cancellation of late-night shows hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Bill Maher, and John Oliver.
This will also have an impact on film production, including anything without a completed script.
When there has been a strike in the past, new reality shows have emerged. If the strike lasts a long time, this could happen again.
The Writers’ Strike’s Influence on the World of NCIS
NCIS Season 20, NCIS: Los Angeles Season 14, and NCIS: Hawai’i Season 2 are now complete.
Because those episodes have already been produced, the strike will have no effect on the current seasons of the shows.
The television series NCIS and NCIS: Hawai’i have been renewed for the 2023-2024 season, with filming set to begin this summer.
If the strike is brief, it may have no effect on NCIS Season 21 or NCIS Hawai’i Season 3.
However, if the strike lasts too long, it may have an impact on the production of both shows. Filming must be postponed until the strike is over.
If filming is pushed back too far, the number of episodes that can be completed may be reduced. It has occurred before.
Why are the writers going on strike?
The writers want a larger share of the pie in terms of payments, streaming, and job opportunities.
According to Variety, the writers also want changes to working conditions and a minimum staffing level for TV writers rooms.
Meanwhile, the studios are said to want “a fair and reasonable agreement” but may object to how many concessions the writers are requesting.
Negotiations are ongoing, but there has been no news of any progress toward an agreement during the first week of the strike.
Shows that haven’t finished filming their current seasons may have production delayed or postponed, and some may even be cancelled if the strike continues.
Current seasons of NCIS are coming to an end.
The season finale of NCIS will air on May 22 and should not be missed.
NCIS: Hawai’i has a two-part finale with some big guest stars to help wrap up the season.
NCIS: Los Angeles will end its 14-season run on CBS this spring.
The finale of NCIS: Los Angeles has been leaked. It suggests that the drama is in for an exciting two weeks.
