2023 Emmy Awards Delayed Due To Strike

Vendors for the 75th annual Primetime Emmys have been told that the event will not air on September 18, making this the first official word that the date has been pushed back, Variety reports.  This is the first time the Emmys have been postponed since the 2001 ceremony, which didn’t end up airing until November of that year due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the military action in Afghanistan.

With the writers and actors strike ongoing with no end in sight, a new date has not been announced yet and isn’t expected to be announced until August.

Fox is aiming to air the show in January 2024, while the TV Academy had been pushing for a November date. According to Variety, January would put the Emmys right in the middle of film awards season, as well as guild awards honoring shows under a different eligibility time frame. But as the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes continue with no resolution in sight, even November may be too soon for this year’s ceremony — which is why January may now be the safer option
