It was confirmed by the brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, co-creators of the series. They fought for “a fair deal” for the writers.
Brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, co-creators of the series “Stranger Things”pointed out that “it is not possible” to start production of the last season “during the strike” of the writers because “the writing does not stop during filming” and they fought for “a fair agreement” for the workers.
“We hope that a fair agreement will be reached soon so that we can all return to work. Until then, change and leave,” they said through a statement that they released from the official account of the writers of one of the most successful Netflix series. .
“Stranger Things” now adds with this decision to the delays in the production of other series on the platform such as “Big Mouth” and “Cobra Kai”.
“Duffers here. The writing does not stop when shooting begins. While we are excited to begin production with our incredible cast and crew, it is not possible during this strike,” they noted.
The Hollywood Writers Guild began its first strike in 15 years on May 2 with mobilizations at major studios in Los Angeles and New York, after negotiations for pay increases with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers failed.
