Television’s largest annual event, the Primetime Emmy Awards, has experienced an unprecedented delay. Initially scheduled for September 18, the awards show will no longer be airing on its original date.

Emmy vendors have received notice of the postponement and have been informed that their services will be required later. This is the first instance in over two decades in which the Emmy Awards has been pushed back, per Blavity.

The last time this occurred was in September 2001, when the show was delayed due to the tragic terrorist attacks in New York City. The decision to postpone this year’s event follows the ongoing Hollywood actors and writers’ strike. The Writers Guild of America initiated their strike on May 2, while SAG-AFTRA, the actors’ union, joined on July 14. At present, the precise rescheduled date for the Emmy Awards has not yet been determined,

“Like the rest of the industry, we hope there will be an equitable and timely resolution for all parties in the current guild negotiations,” the TV Academy said last week in a statement, per Variety. “We continue to monitor the situation closely with our partners at Fox and will advise if and when there is an update available.”
