After a standoff and legal battle with the show’s production company, the adult cast of ‘Modern Family’ is back to work.
According to ‘The Hollywood Reporter,’ Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, and Sofia Vergara stand to receive big raises for the upcoming fourth season, up to $175,000 per person per episodes, including bonuses.
The cast members were originally supposed to make around $65,000 per episode before the dispute with 20th Century Fox Television.
All the adult cast members will now earn the same salary, including Ed O’Neill, who was making more than the rest of the cast previously, around $105,000 per episode.
The cast has also agreed to add an eighth year to their contract, which will earn them around $350,000 per episode if the show reaches an eighth season.
Production of season 4 will begin shortly, with the premiere set for Sept. 26 on ABC.
