Hollywood actors are heading back to work.

SAG-AFTRA, the union representing more than 150,000 film and television performers, reached a tentative deal on a new contract with the entertainment world’s top studios Wednesday a major step that would revive an industry that has been virtually paralyzed for months.

“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 actors guild said in a statement, adding that the strike officially ends at 12:01 a.m. Thursday.

SAG-AFTRA said the tentative deal will go to the union’s national board Friday for “review and consideration” and that more details will be released after that meeting.
