When does The Drew Barrymore Show return?

For several months, writers and actors have been on the front lines, demanding things like better pay and benefits.

As a result, it has caused several shows, like Saturday Night LiveLate Show with Stephen Colbert, and The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to go dark.

The Drew Barrymore Show is among countless productions covered under the WGA, which is why fans thought that it would also stay off the air, however, the former child star is choosing to bring the show back.

“I am also making the choice to come back for the first time in this strike for our show, that may have my name on it but this is bigger than just me,” Barrymore said in a statement.

“I own this choice. We are in compliance with not discussing or promoting film and television that is struck of any kind.

“We launched live in a global pandemic. Our show was built for sensitive times and has only functioned through what the real world is going through in real time. I want to be there to provide what writers do so well, which is a way to bring us together or help us make sense of the human experience,” she added.

In response, the WGA condemned Barrymore’s decision, claiming it was in violation of the organization’s strike rules.

“The @DrewBarrymoreTV Show is a WGA covered, struck show that is planning to return without its writers. The Guild has, and will continue to, picket struck shows that are in production during the strike. Any writing on “The Drew Barrymore Show” is in violation of WGA strike rules,” the organization said on X, formerly known as Twitter.
