Sources close to the production team said that the script for the last season of Stranger Things wasn’t finished before the strike started. The WGA strike has caused more delays in writing the script, and now the production team is rushing to find a way to keep shooting.
The show’s producers, the Duffer brothers, made a statement saying, “We are devastated that the WGA strike has caused a delay in making the final season of ‘Stranger Things.'” We were happy to put an end to this story and give our fans the finish they deserved. We are working hard to find an answer and get back to work as soon as possible.”
The WGA went on strike because the union and the Alliance of Motion Pic ture and Television Producers (AMPTP) couldn’t agree on how much more writers should be paid for streaming material. The WGA wants better pay and working conditions for its members, whose pay has gone down in recent years as streaming services like Netflix have become more popular.
It is now unknown when production on “Stranger Things” will restart and when Netflix will make available the concluding season of the show. This uncertainty will persist until the strike is ended.
