SAG-AFTRA, the union representing approximately 160,000 actors, reached a tentative deal on Wednesday with major TV and movie studios that suspends a strike launched more than three months ago, APA reports citing ABC News.

"In a unanimous vote this afternoon, The SAG-AFTRA TV/Theatrical Committee approved a tentative agreement with the AMPTP bringing an end to the 118 day strike," the union's press release said.

Further details of the agreement will be released on Friday once the deal goes to the SAG-AFTRA National Board for review and consideration.

A short while later, SAG-AFTRA said on X (formerly Twitter) that the strike was "suspended as of 12:01 a.m." on Nov. 9.

The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers also released a statement Wednesday night saying the organization was "pleased" to have reached a tentative deal.
