Work resumes on final season of hit Netflix show Stranger Things following end of writers strike Netflix

Stranger Things writers have confirmed they are resuming work on the final season of the Netflix show.

The writers celebrated their return with a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, that read: “We’re back”.

The news comes as the Writers Guild of America (WGA) said it has reached a “tentative” deal with studio bosses after five months of strikes.

Since May 2, more than 11,000 WGA members have been on strike over issues including pay and the threat of artificial intelligence’.

In tweets from its eastern and western branches, the WGA said: “The WGA reached a tentative agreement with the AMPTP. Today, our Negotiating Committee, WGAW Board, and WGAE Council all voted unanimously to recommend the agreement. The strike ends at 12.01am.”

The writers were working on the fifth and final season of the record-breaking show before production was halted in May.

The co-creators and co-showrunners of the show, Matt and Ross Duffer, known as the Duffer brothers, confirmed that starting production without writers was not possible.

“Duffers here. Writing does not stop when filming begins. While we’re excited to start production with our amazing cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike,” the Duffers wrote.
