‘Outer Banks’ filming in Charleston suspended due to nationwide writers strike

It’s lights, camera, inaction for “Outer Banks.”

Production work in Charleston for the fourth season of the Netflix hit streaming series was suspended this week as an expanded strike shut down much of the entertainment industry, setting the stage for Hollywood’s biggest labor fight in decades.

The original walkout, by the 11,500-member Writers Guild of America, started May 2 over contractual disputes with studios, networks and streaming platforms involving pay and other issues.
