ABC has announced the official return premiere dates for their shows including Grey's Anatomy, 9-1-1, and The Conners, after delays caused by dual Hollywood strikes. The writers strike lasted for 148 days, ending on September 27, overlapping with the actors' strike that ended on November 9. The strikes affected the release dates of these shows, pushing them to midseason. The shows will have shortened seasons to end in time for summer hiatus. The strikes were aimed at fighting for fair pay and showcasing the importance of writers and actors in the industry.
