Item 8.01 Other Events.

On August 8, 2022, Entergy Corporation (the “Company” or “Entergy”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) a Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-266624) (the “New Registration Statement”), which became effective upon filing. The New Registration Statement replaced the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-3 (No. 333-233403) filed with the SEC on August 22, 2019 (the “Prior Registration Statement”), which was scheduled to expire on August 22, 2022. The Prior Registration Statement was deemed terminated upon the effectiveness of the New Registration Statement on August 8, 2022.

On August 9, 2022, in connection with the filing of the New Registration Statement, the Company filed a prospectus supplement (the “ATM Prospectus Supplement”) relating to the offering of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”) with an aggregate offering price of up to $1,116,396,318, pursuant to the Equity Distribution Sales Agreement, dated January 11, 2021, as supplemented to increase the aggregate offering price thereunder (the “Sales Agreement”), with BofA Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., J.P. Morgan Securities LLC, Mizuho Securities USA LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, as sales agents and as forward sellers, and Bank of America, N.A., Citibank, N.A., JPMorgan Chase Bank, National Association, New York Branch, Mizuho Markets Americas LLC (with Mizuho Securities USA LLC acting as agent) and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as forward purchasers. The ATM Prospectus Supplement continues an offering, from time to time, of Common Stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $1,116,396,318 previously registered pursuant to the Prior Registration Statement. The offering of the Common Stock will be made pursuant to the New Registration Statement, a base prospectus dated August 8, 2022, and the ATM Prospectus Supplement. The Company has no obligation to offer or sell any Common Stock under the Sales Agreement and may at any time suspend offers under the Sales Agreement. As previously disclosed in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, in addition to settlement of existing forward sale agreements, the Company currently expects to issue approximately $320 million of equity through 2024.

In connection with the issuance and sale of the shares of Common Stock, the Company is also filing a legal opinion regarding the validity of the shares of Common Stock as Exhibit 5.01 for the purpose of incorporating the opinion into the New Registration Statement.
