With the end of the writers' strike after nearly five months, late-night television hosts jointly announced the return of their shows early next week.
Among them are Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and John Oliver.
The five hosts had started a podcast, Strike Force Five, as their shows stopped airing.
The joint statement was made as a superhero-inspired bulletin with the Strike Force Five logo.
Part of it read, "This is the Strike Force 5 signing off and the Late Night 5 signing back on…What was the password to my work computer again?”
Others like Bill Maher, who had attempted to resume production during the strike and faced backlash, will return with Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday.
The Writers’ Guild of America (WGA) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) finally made a deal to end the strike.
The writers' strike began on May 2 and ended on Tuesday night, and it lasted 148 days, being one of the longest in WGA history.
