It’s been 74 days since the writers' strike began, but the dispute between studios and the group is still far from over.
As actors join those striking over pay this week, Hollywood has well and truly ground to a halt.
Here’s how some of your favourite TV shows and films may be affected by the mass walk-out.
The industrial action began back in early May, with the Writers Guild taking action over pay as workers demand a living wage.
Many are also demanding better residual fees from networks, with some writers getting just pennies each time an episode is streamed online.
Over 11,000 members of the union have already participated in the US strike, with many refusing to return without a better offer.
The strike action has had a major effect on studios, delaying some of the biggest franchises in the business.
Actors have also been joining the picket line in support, with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) also announcing industrial action over residual fees this week (July 13).
One of the biggest actors’ unions in the US, its 160,000 members will now stage a mass walkout causing the biggest shut-down in Hollywood since the 60s.
Giving fans a taste of things to come, actors will now be banned from junkets and conventions - even with new releases.
Legendary director Ridley Scott has also paused production on Gladiator 2, which was being filmed in Morocco with Paul Mescal and Pedro Pascal.
On the small screen, a galaxy far far away hasn’t been enough to stop strike action as Star Wars spin-off Andor closed down.
Though momager Kris Jenner might not be able to resolve strike action, many are now waiting for the studios’ reaction as the crisis continues to deepen.
