Screenwriters may be able to resume projects soon, this time around, with better pay and working conditions. The Writers Guild of America (WGA) has reached a tentative deal with entertainment companies and studios.

In the coming days, the WGA’s 11,000 members will vote on whether to accept the terms. The deal reportedly meets many of the terms screenwriters have been advocating for, such as an increase in pay and a promise that AI won’t infringe on their compensation, though its exact terms have yet to be made public.

Production has been at a standstill throughout the industry since screenwriters began striking nearly five months ago. At 146 days, the strike is one of the longest in WGA history, second to a 1988 strike that lasted 154 days.

“We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership,” the Writers Guild’s negotiating committee wrote in an email to the guild.

The WGA reportedly told members to hold off on returning to work until authorized by the guild – which would happen following a majority vote – but that screenwriters should suspend picketing immediately.
