In an Instagram post, Barrymore initially said she was backing down from offers of co-hosting with several projects.

The decision, Barrymore said, was taken because it was still the first weeks of strike action and wanted to show solidarity with Hollywood writers.

"I chose to leave the MTV award shows, film, and television because I was the host and this had a direct conflict with what was the focus of the strike, namely studios, streamers, films, and television," wrote Drew Barrymore on Sunday (10/9).

"It was also the first week of the strike, so I did what I thought was the right thing at the time to stand in solidarity with the writers."

Drew Barrymore explained that the television talk show wrapped its final season on April 20. The final season ended before writers started taking to the streets last May.

So, Barrymore said the program did not stop halfway through the impact of the strike. However, she chose to continue her television program not for the sake of herself.

"I've also decided to come back for the first time in the middle of this strike for our show, which may have my name but it's bigger than just me," Barrymore said.

Drew Barrymore had a flashback to when she started The Drew Barrymore Show amid a pandemic. He believes that the current conditions are no different from when the program was first established.

In addition, the Charlie's Angels actress also said that the continuation of her TV program will still not discuss or promote any film and television material that could violate strike rules.

"We abide by the rules not to discuss or promote film and television that contain any impact."

"So, I take a step forward for season four once again with humility."

Hollywood writers who are members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) began taking to the streets to demonstrate since last May. This strike was later joined by the Hollywood actors' union, SAG-AFTRA.

Both unions are demanding more humane contracts for studios and the companies that employ them.

The strike led writers to pause their work, including writing for new episodes.

Until now, the unions and the studio have still not found a mutually beneficial agreement for each party.
