YELLOWJACKETS Season 3 Writers Room Shuts Down After Day To Go On Strike
The Yellowjackets season 3 writers room shut down after one day to go on strike.
It was amazing, and creatively invigorating, and so much fun, and I’m very excited to get back to it as soon as the [Writers Guild of America] gets a fair deal. — co-creator Ashley Lyle.
Well, we had exactly one day in the #YellowJackets S3 writers’ room. It was amazing, and creatively invigorating, and so much fun, and I’m very excited to get back to it as soon as the #WGA gets a fair deal. #1u #unionstrong ✊🐝— Ashley Lyle (@ashannlyle) May 2, 2023
Six weeks of talks between the writers union (Writers Guild of America) and eight studios (Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Disney-ABC, NBC Universal, Paramount-CBS, Warner Bros Discovery, Sony) ended last night and the writers voted unanimously to call a strike as their three-year contract expired.
Late night talk shows, Saturday Night Live and TV series writers rooms shut down today.
Yellowjackets season 3 production is expected to start later this year in B.C., but that will depend on how long the Writers Strike lasts.
Yellowjackets season 3:
Showrunners: Jonathan Lisco, Ashley Lyle, Bart Nickerson.
Cast: Melanie Lynskey, Christina Ricci, Tawny Cypress, Juliette Lewis, Lauren Ambrose, Simone Kessell, Sophie Thatcher, Sammi Hanratty, Sophie Nélisse, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Liv Hewson, Courtney Eaton, Steven Krueger, Warren Kole, Kevin Alves.
Is everyone coming back?
Yellowjackets season 2 is streaming Fridays on Paramount+ (Crave in Canada) and airs Sunday nights on Showtimes. Episode 6 drops this week.
