This week, the Writers Guild Of America and the AMPTP (aka the studios including Disney) have been meeting to discuss a possible resolution to the ongoing writers’ strike that started in May. The writers are on strike to try to improve working conditions, get protection against artificial intelligence and get paid more for their work.
On Wednesday, the studios, including Disney CEO Bob Iger, met with the WGA to try to resolve the issue, with another meeting taking place on Thursday. Following that last meeting, a third meeting has been revealed to be taking place on Friday.
The WGA has shared an update on the ongoing status of the meetings:
The WGA and AMPTP met for bargaining today and will meet again tomorrow.
Your Negotiating Committee appreciates all the messages of solidarity and support we have received the last few days, and ask as many of you as possible to come out to the picket lines tomorrow.

With more pressure growing on both sides to come to a deal to end the strike, having three days of meetings back to back is hopefully a sign that this strike could be coming to an end.
Since the writers went on strike in May, writing on scripted shows and films, have been stopped by members of the Writer’s Guild Of America, resulting in development and production on many shows have stopped.
