Congrats, WGA...

The Writer's Guild strike ended with a whimper on Tuesday, simply because the news of the pending deal leaked weeks before it officially went down. Congratulations to all involved, and all hail the return of studio production as usual.

Now...what's next?

The Screen Actor's Guild is the only remaining guild with a potential strike still looming (the Director's Guild of America reached a deal with AMPTP earlier in January, thereby ushering in the eventual WGA deal). Negotiations technically don't need to begin until months from now, but before we can put the threat of Union Wars and their potential fallout behind us, SAG must get their deal done.

Time will tell...for now, though, I will be sitting on my couch waiting for The Office to return.
