Sarah Hyland, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez and Ariel Winter - better known as the kids from "Modern Family," - are finally getting a much deserved pay increase. Just one month after the "Modern Family" parents got their much publicized raises, the kids are in line to take home approximately $70,000 an episode. The pay is three-times their previous salary, according to TV Guide.
Contract re-negotiations reportedly followed quickly after the kids' on-screen parents reached an agreement with 20th Century Fox, which produces the Emmy-winning series for ABC.
The re-negotiations between Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and the studio made headlines when the adult cast filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court to void their contracts.
According to the report, the suit came not long after a salary standoff had already delayed a table read for the shows fourth season. After the re-negotiations were settled, the suit was eventually dropped and all five stars, who were originally each making $65,000 an episode, got bumped up salaries, which reportedly range from $170,000-$180,000 with year-to-year increases, as well as a portion of the show's back-end.
The new season of "Modern Family" premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on ABC.
