Two more productions have paused production due to the ongoing WGA Strike. Deadline reported on Wednesday that both Daredevil: Born Again and The Penguin have officially paused production. Both series are expected to pick production back up whenever the strike ends, whenever that might be.
The move comes after Daredevil: Born Again was previously shut down due to the strike as recently as June 12th. Born Again is three months into its planned eight month shoot for a total of 18-episodes. The series hails from Matt Corman and Chris Ord and is expected to have some sort of presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
As for Penguin, the series has too been subjected to picketing by writers and is officially throwing in the towel for now. A spinoff of The Batman, The Penguin will see Colin Farrell reprise his role in the eight-episode series.
Expect more productions to be impacted while the strike remains ongoing. Fingers crossed Hollywood gives the writers what they’re worth sooner rather than later.
