It's Official...

The Hollywood writer's strike is over as of tonight following a majority endorsement by the Writers' Guild of America (WGA).

The new contract between WGA members and studio heads includes provisions that take new media into account, which will compensate writers for digital distribution of their content. Ratification of this new agreement will be finalized following membership meetings on February 26.

What does this mean for us, the viewers? Well, it means that writers can go back to work, and that we will no longer be subject to new installments of Moment of Truth to sate our hunger for prime-time drama. However, don't expect new episodes of your favorite shows like Heroes and 24 just yet. As Hollywood picks up the pieces following the three-month WGA strike, we may not be seeing our favorite series return until the fall.
