Late-night TV’s lineup of shows — including “The Late Show,” “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night,” “Last Week Tonight” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” — are all poised to resume production next week, following the end of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike.
The late-night TV programs — which had shut down immediately in the wake of the May strike — will all return on Sunday and Monday, ITK confirmed on Wednesday.
The WGA officially lifted its strike just after midnight on Wednesday, allowing Hollywood’s writers to return to work. The union said it had reached a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers, a group representing studios, streaming services and production companies.
Hosts Stephen Colbert of CBS, NBC’s Jimmy Fallon, ABC’s Kimmel, “Late Night’s” Seth Meyers and HBO “Last Week Tonight’s” John Oliver issued a joint statement to announce the return of their shows. The group of late-night personalities had teamed up last month for “Strike Force Five,” a podcast that aimed to give a financial boost to their staffers on strike.
The group touted their return to the airwaves in a Wednesday Instagram post.
“Their mission complete, the founding members of Strike Force 5 will return to their network television shows this Monday 10/2, and one of them to premium cable on 10/1,” the post said.
“This is the Strike Force 5 signing off and the Late Night 5 signing back on.”
