After several weeks of negotiations, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Rico Rodriguez and Nolan Gould have all hammered out new deals that will pay them in the neighborhood of $70,000 per episode, according to Deadline. That’s about three times what they had been making.
Hyland, who’s 21 and the most experienced of the quartet, had previously been making a little more than Gould, Rodriguez and Winter, but the four will all earn the the same.
And what about Lily? Deadline says reps for 5-year-old Aubrey Anderson-Emmons tried to renegotiate her deal as well, but it didn’t happen since she hasn’t been with the show as long.
“Modern Family” is one of the highest-rated shows on TV — it was the top scripted series among adults 18-49 last season — and already has a lucrative syndication deal in place with USA. It generated more than $160 million in ad revenue for ABC in 2011-12.
Season 4 of “Modern Family” premieres Sept. 26 on ABC.
