Is the ‘Drew Barrymore Show’ set to return in October after strike deal?

The Drew Barrymore Show is looking to make a comeback in October after the Writers Guild of America (WGA) struck a tentative agreement to end its ongoing strike. The show faced criticism when Drew Barrymore initially announced its return for season four without WGA writers. However, she later apologized publicly and decided to pause the show’s premiere until the strike is over.

A spokesperson from CBS Media Ventures, which produces The Drew Barrymore Show, expressed support for Barrymore’s decision, stating that they understand the complexity of the situation. Fortunately, the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have reached a tentative deal to end the strike.

While the deal still needs to be drafted and undergo several votes by WGA officials and members, it is expected to be ratified and finalized in the coming weeks. Despite the strike not officially ending yet, the WGA has suspended picketing efforts and protests.

According to Dominic Patten, a senior editor at Deadline Hollywood, late-night TV shows will likely return shortly after the ratification vote, with daytime talk shows following suit. However, primetime shows may take longer to return, as negotiations with the actors union are yet to begin.

Although the end of the WGA strike seems imminent, the SAG-AFTRA strike is still ongoing.

Overall, fans of The Drew Barrymore Show can look forward to its return in October, now that the strike is nearing its end.
