– “Young Sheldon” Season 7 production may be delayed due to a potential SAG-AFTRA strike
– Iain Armitage (Young Sheldon) posted a photo on Instagram showing support for a potential strike
– Negotiations between SAG-AFTRA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers are ongoing
“Young Sheldon” fans might have to wait a bit longer for Season 7, as a potential SAG-AFTRA strike could lead to a delay in the production schedule. Lead actor Iain Armitage, who plays the titular character, recently showed his support for this potential strike by posting a photo on Instagram.
The image featured Armitage holding a sign that read, “#IASolidarity.” The hashtag is associated with the current labor dispute between the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP). Negotiations have been underway between the two organizations, with contracts expiring on June 30th.
A potential work stoppage could significantly impact numerous productions, including popular television series like “Young Sheldon.” The strike could also affect other projects that are in various stages of production.
SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP are currently negotiating terms that include wages, working conditions, and residuals. A strike authorization vote is anticipated to take place soon, as members of the organization decide whether or not they want to take this drastic measure.
“Young Sheldon” has been a successful spin-off of the long-running hit sitcom “The Big Bang Theory.” Season 6 ended with fans eagerly awaiting the continuation of the story, and they will surely be disappointed if a delay occurs.
It remains to be seen how the negotiations between SAG-AFTRA and AMPTP will unfold, as well as the potential impact on “Young Sheldon” and its production schedule. Fans of the show can only hope that an agreement will be reached soon and that the beloved series will return without any major disruptions.
