Hollywood writers will be picking up their pens again.
Guild leaders unanimously voted to approve a new contract- ending the almost five-month strike as of this afternoon.
US correspondent Dan Mitchinson says the new agreement is three years.
He says it includes lifting wages, improving ongoing payments for streaming shows, and protection against replicating writers' work with AI.
"We think right now, late-night and daytime TV should return as soon as next week, maybe a couple of weeks. I think most TV and film productions are still going to be delayed, so there's going to be a lot of stuff that we're not going to see until next year."
