Renowned rapper and actor 50 Cent expressed his relief as the Writers Guild of America (WGA) reached an agreement with major studios and streaming platforms, effectively ending their 146-day strike that had halted the entertainment industry.
On Sunday, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers successfully negotiated a tentative three-year contract, bringing an end to the prolonged strike that had a significant impact on the entertainment business.
50 Cent took to Instagram to share his elation, posting a screenshot of a Hollywood Reporter article with the headline, “Writers Guild Reaches Tentative Agreement With Studios and Streamers, Union Says.” He captioned the post, saying, “I’m glad this shit is over, check EXPENDABLES 4 in theaters now! and catch FORCE season 2 the best shit on TV right now [bomb emoji] BOOM[smoke emoji]GLG [stoplight emoji] GreenLightGang back in action #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.”
The WGA’s negotiating committee sent an email to its members after five days of negotiations, expressing pride in the exceptional deal achieved, which includes substantial gains and protections for writers across various sectors of the membership. However, they emphasized that members should not return to work until specifically authorized to do so by the Guild.
While the details of the agreement are yet to be disclosed, the WGA stated that they couldn’t share them until all the final details were settled. They asked for their members’ patience as they work to conclude the agreement.
On the professional front, 50 Cent’s series “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” is set to premiere its third season on STARZ. The season will follow Kanan, portrayed by Mekai Curtis, as he grapples with life-altering decisions and his role in the family business. The show promises intense personal quests and revelations, blurring the lines between right and wrong, good and evil.
The new season of “Raising Kanan” is scheduled to debut on December 1, following the release of “Power Book IV: Force”.
