The writers and the studios are set to sit down to resume negotiations on Wednesday.
The WGA sent out a note to members confirming the talks.
“The WGA and AMPTP now have a confirmed schedule to bargain this week, starting on Wednesday. You might not hear from us in the coming days while we are negotiating, but know that our focus is getting a fair deal for writers as soon as possible. We’ll reach out again when there is something of significance to report. In the meantime, please continue to demonstrate your commitment and unity by coming out to the picket lines – for yourselves and fellow writers, SAG-AFTRA, other unions’ members, and all those in our community who are impacted by the strikes,” the guild noted.

It comes after the two sides confirmed on Thursday that they would return to the bargaining table.
There’s renewed optimism this week that the two sides can reach a deal as the writers strike is in its 140th day. There’s been talk of internal friction among the studios and streamers and the writers have been buoyed after a slew of high-profile talk show hosts including Drew Barrymore and Bill Maher have reversed their decisions to bring back their shows during the strike.
