If you’re anxiously looking forward to the return of one of your favorite Netflix series, you may have a longer wait than you anticipated.
According to a report from Deadline, Netflix will be going through a bit of a drought when it comes to some of its hit series. The source of the delays were the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes of 2023, and it’s going to take some time for everything to get back in place. The series being impacted cover some of the most highly-anticipated returns.
Stranger Things 5 was due to begin filming in May 2023 but didn’t begin production until Jan. 2024, which will push it well into 2025. Wednesday, Netflix’s biggest series to date, is now due to begin filming season 2 in late April. No firm date has been announced of yet as to when One Piece season 2 will go into production.
Other series that won’t be returning in 2024 include Sweet Magnolias, Ginny & Georgia, The Lincoln Lawyer, The Watcher, XO Kitty, The Recruit, and Virgin River.
Not all is lost, however, as we will see new episodes of Bridgerton, Cobra Kai, Squid Game, Emily in Paris, and more.
Delays such as what is being seen were to be expected, and are understandable. But it is definitely going to be a long wait to see what happens next in our favorite shows.
