[ # ] Drew Barrymore will host her talk show

Drew Barrymore had finished taping the third season of her daytime talk show before the Writers’ Strike began.

However, the strike started days before she was set to host the MTV Film and Television Awards, so she opted to cancel hosting that show.

So, we have been wondering if she would return to her talk show before the Writers’ and Actors’ strikes are over, especially since SAG allows her to do it.

Today, she announced her decision: “I made a choice to walk away from the MTV, film and television awards because I was the host and it had a direct conflict with what the strike was dealing with which was studios, streamers, film, and television. It was also in the first week of the strike and so I did what I thought was the appropriate thing at the time to stand in solidarity with the writers. And to be clear, our talk show actually wrapped on April 20th so we never had to shut down the show. However, I am also making the choice to come back for the first time in this strike for our show, that may have my name on it but this is bigger than just me.

“I own this choice. We are in compliance with not discussing or promoting film and television that is struck of any kind. We launched live in a global pandemic. Our show was built for sensitive times and has only functioned through what the real world is going through in real time. I want to be there to provide what writers do so well, which is a way to bring us together or help us make sense of the human experience. I hope for a resolve for everyone as soon as possible. We have navigated difficult times since we first came on air. And so I take a step forward to start season 4 once again with an astute humility.”

The Drew Barrymore Show will return with new episodes on September 18th.
