The production company is also behind cooking competitions like Top Chef, Snoop and Martha’s Very Tasty Halloween, and National Geographic’s Brain Games.

How many episodes are there in ‘Nailed It! Halloween'? What to know about Season 7.

Usually, a full season of Nailed It! is composed of anywhere between six and eight episodes. However, the 2022 season of the Netflix series is only four episodes.

In March 2022, Deadline reported that filming for Nailed It! Halloween was cut short after the Magical Elves production crew went on strike. As a result, Netflix and Magical Elves decided to wrap up the season prematurely.

An insider told the outlet, “I know for sure that it’s shut down. They’d rather shut down than sign a union contract. They’re notoriously nonunion.”

The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees spoke on behalf of the employees in a statement to The Wrap, “The approximately 50-person crew on Season 7 of Netflix’s unscripted baking competition Nailed It! are on strike for union representation since Tuesday evening.”

“If organized, this would be the first season under a union agreement. There was a picket line this week in L.A., and this involves all 13 of our West Coast Studio Locals,” the statement added.

When is the 'Nailed It!' Halloween release date?

Nailed It! Halloween arrived just in time for spooky season. The four-episode season premiered on the streaming platform on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
