The Hollywood writers' strike has finally come to an end after 146 days. The Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reached a tentative agreement on Saturday, September 23, 2023.

The new deal includes better pay and benefits for writers. Writers will receive a 10% raise in minimum salaries, and they will also receive better health insurance and pension benefits.
