Late-night network talk shows and Saturday Night Live shut down almost immediately after the start of the writers’ strike. In the two months since, many scripted television series have also shut down, including Netflix’s Stranger Things, Max’s Hacks, Showtime’s Yellowjackets, and Apple TV+’s Severance.

As for shows on Netflix and Prime, you might not notice an impact right away. But you’ll eventually have to wait much longer for your favorite original series to return.

While the unions continue to encourage you to keep streaming, consider it a great time to discover new shows and catch up on programming you may have missed or not had time to watch previously.
