It’s official: The writers’ strike is over and most broadcast networks’ shows will be producing new episodes to air before the summer break.

Unfortunately, a few series’ futures are still up in the air. Scrubs has four episodes that were filmed before the strike that are ready to air and four episodes that are set to be filmed; it is unknown if NBC will air them. Prison Break has two episodes left and it’s unknown if any more are to be filmed for the series. As DeadOn previously discussed, Friday Night Lights‘ future is in limbo; please help save it.

Production for 24, Chuck, and Heroes has been pushed back until next fall/winter.

TV Guide has an excellent listing that details the status of each series affected by the strike, how many episodes will be filmed and when they’ll air.

Praise be to Jeebus.

I like the “No new episodes expected. Ever. ”

Wow, that’s really quick for The Office and 30 Rock coming back.

Holy fuck, I have to go another year without 24? Son of a bitch. We couldn’t at least get it next fall? Or run it over the summer? I thought a bunch were already done.

My question is: Lost was only supposed to have like 3 seasons left and we’re getting half of one this year. Are we going to get robbed of half a season or will they make it up to us?

DougOLis,

From what I’ve just read, Lost will run a 7 episode “pod” (instead of the 8 we were expecting during the strike) and come back with a 6 episode run to finish the season.

I’ve also read that they’ll try to fit the 3 extra hours into the remaining seasons. They promised 48 episodes, we’ll get 48 episodes. I’ve got a feeling that one of those hours will be tacked onto the series’ finale.

More details about Lost’s post-strike plans can be found here.
