The Hollywood strike is a labor dispute between the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). The WGA is asking for higher pay, better working conditions, and more residuals for streaming content. The AMPTP has refused to meet these demands, and the strike has been ongoing for over 100 days.
The strike has affected production on several Star Trek projects, including Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, and Star Trek: Discovery. It is unclear when production will resume, or when new episodes of these shows will air.
Gaten Matarazzo, who plays Dustin Henderson in Stranger Things, which is also produced by Netflix, said in a tweet, "I stand with the writers and actors who are striking for a fair contract. The entertainment industry is a tough place to work, and it's important that we fight for our rights."
